Are You Being Hacked and Penetrated? Read this book and find out...



How sure are you that you’re not being hacked and penetrated by low power devices? You might be. Read this book and you can learn how to make these devices, where to get the tools and parts. It covers so many subjects that it seems incredibly easy, and perhaps it is. I never even thought of some of these things. By reading this book, you should have more information on what to look for in order to know if you are being hacked and penetrated.
I think books like this are a double-edged sword, and I don’t mean that as an insult, either. I mean that in the wrong hands the person can wreak havoc. But then those who do these things don’t need the book because they most likely already have the knowledge. The other side of the coin is that now those who wonder how to do this can learn and perhaps find out if they are being hacked and penetrated.
I am thankful for the authors’ efforts to bring good people the information they need to help them protect themselves. I would recommend this book to all who have an inquiring mind, as well as those who love to learn how things work. I have always asked ‘why’ among other questions. Must have almost drove them crazy at times. My dad, bless his heart, would actually show me how things worked. Of course my mother didn’t understand, and thought we were just tearing things up. My dad didn’t have a formal education, but he really knew how things worked and could fix many things. We were able to put things back together and it worked around 98% of the time.

Do You Feel Guilty? Then stop it!



Stop Feeling Guilty Accepting your limitations makes you stronger.

This is the headline on the cover of October 2014 Arthritis self-management magazine. I am not going to write about arthritis. I never read the article since I was leaving when I happened to see the headline. This headline fits so many circumstances that I was inspired to write my own article about it.
While there are plenty of things we can change about our lives, there are some things that just aren’t going to change regardless of how many hoops we try to jump through. We can’t please everybody, but we can sometimes help ourselves. If where you are right now is causing you so much stress that you’re having anxiety attacks, or worse, and may be interfering with your life, then you definitely need a change.
Stress seems to be on the rise and it definitely affects women more than men. I copied the chart below from the apa.org website. 1   
As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.  So if you are stressed out, please consider seeking help from your healthcare professional, an holistic healer, aromatherapy, meditation, yoga or any of the many ways of dealing with stress. Sometimes, it calls for a drastic change of scenery.
For instance, I’m so stressed out right now, that it’s a wonder that I’ve not had either a meltdown, or a heart attack. So…since I can’t change things here, I’m leaving here as soon as possible. Because I’ve lived with way too much stress most of my life and I certainly don’t need anymore.


Wanna make a change in your life? Learn how to silently influence others




NOTE: Please use this book responsibly.
When I was married, my husband was an abusive person. I divorced him. But at the time, I didn’t feel like I had any prospects to make things better, or even anyone to help me. I couldn’t drive, had no skills and no job. When we would go somewhere, with seemingly no indication he would backhand me. I learned early to read his body language, and yet sometimes I would miss a cue. I would sometimes sit in the seat with my hand clenched tightly in a fist, and I wondered why. I knew that I needed to calm down and not be so stressed, so one time I opened my hand and laid it down on my thigh palm-down. My stress level went way down.
The reason for telling you this story is simple. I know what I’m talking about when I say this book will help you. It may or may not save your butt from a physical attack, but it might. This book is actually more for business dealings, but as with anything in my life I have learned to adapt the principles and practices in other ways than in which is was meant. For instance, this book is for business, but would work equally well in a personal setting.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know what those gestures mean. If you want to know how to be a person manager, employer, and employee; and hopefully make less mistakes, read the book. Learn how to read all those gestures and body language, so as to have a better overall picture.

What the Heck is Branding???



What, you haven’t heard of it? Sure you have, look at Coke, Pepsi, Converse, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, for instance. They’re all known for soda, tennis shoes, or books, or in the case of Amazon, the family of Kindles they have, as well as books.
But, branding is more than just a fancy logo or website. Do you realize how much work went into making those brands so big? There are people who cannot afford, right out of the starting gate to spend mega bucks on making a brand that everyone will know what it is. There is also more than just a design to consider. Brands are always evolving.
According to Ms. Busche, there are a number of things to take into consideration. In this book, according to Ms. Busche, “you will find instructions to build and measure 25 essential brand strategy ingredients, which include:
·       Name
·       Typography and Imagery
·       Landing page
·       Social media
·       Email lists
·       Press releases
·       Promotional videos
·       Blogging
·       Collateral
·       Slide decks …and more”(paraphrased)
This book also contains 100+ DIY branding tactics and case studies to inspire you. (Paraphrased) I believe you will enjoy this book and that it will definitely be helpful. I recommend this book to anyone who wishes to build a brand for whatever type of business you have or have in mind. As they say, the ball’s in your court. I believe you will be way ahead of the competition with this book when it comes to branding your business.
