#1 Best Seller: Book Marketing ... Reinvented Audiobook

#1 Best Seller: Book Marketing ... Reinvented

Author: Bryan Heathman Narrator: Zackary Turner Release Date: May 2018

The business of book marketing has changed! The traditional rules longer apply, and a new era of marketing books is upon us-an approach in which authors are authentically engaging their audiences. But where do you start? Today's megasuccess authors are not only writers but entrepreneurs who expertly work a strategy that leverages the power of social media, search engine optimization, advertising, speaking, bookstore signings, and a combination of other programs that are incredibly rewarding to the author. Every author wants a road map or step-by-step guide for a successful book launch. To book marketing professionals in large publishing houses, this is the holy grail, so they can repeat the success of their last launch campaign. With this system, you will no longer have the guesswork associated with choosing which marketing programs to run for a successful launch. Bryan Heathman has managed hundreds of book marketing campaigns and created a repeatable fifteen-week system to promote nonfiction books. Bryan's approach to book marketing was inspired by running massively successful campaigns that have resulted in New York Times bestsellers, Wall Street Journal bestsellers, and Amazon #1 bestsellers for famous authors, including professional speaker Chris Widener, America's #1 sales trainer Tom Hopkins, US Olympian Johnny Quinn, and three-time World Series champion Todd Stottlemyre. Unlike other works, which list a hundred things to do when marketing a book, this approach is distilled into a manageable fifteen-week burst of activity-individual actions that, when done in a scheduled time frame, are proven to produce the results you desire for your book launch.

#GIRLBOSS Audiobook

#GIRLBOSS

Author: Sophia Amoruso Narrator: Sara Jes Austell Release Date: May 2014

In the New York Times bestseller that the Washington Post called 'Lean In for misfits,' Sophia Amoruso shares how she went from dumpster diving to founding one of the fastest-growing retailers in the world. Sophia Amoruso spent her teens hitchhiking, committing petty theft, and scrounging in dumpsters for leftover bagels. By age twenty-two she had dropped out of school, and was broke, directionless, and checking IDs in the lobby of an art schoola job she'd taken for the health insurance. It was in that lobby that Sophia decided to start selling vintage clothes on eBay. Flash forward ten years to today, and she's the founder and executive chairman of Nasty Gal, a $250-million-plus fashion retailer with more than four hundred employees. Sophia was never a typical CEO, or a typical anything, and she's written #GIRLBOSS for other girls like her: outsiders (and insiders) seeking a unique path to success, even when that path is windy as all hell and lined with naysayers. #GIRLBOSS proves that being successful isn't about where you went to college or how popular you were in high school. It's about trusting your instincts and following your gut; knowing which rules to follow and which to break; when to button up and when to let your freak flag fly.

#MeToo in the Corporate World: Power, Privilege, and the Path Forward Audiobook

#MeToo in the Corporate World: Power, Privilege, and the Path Forward

Author: Sylvia Ann Hewlett Narrator: Jane Copland Release Date: January 2020

Economist and award-winning author Sylvia Ann Hewlett blends vivid stories with powerful new data in assessing the impact of the #MeToo movement in corporate America and provides concrete action to help executives and companies create more inclusive and safe work environments for women, people of color, and LGBTQ employees. While the #MeToo movement has exposed the enormous harm done by sexual misconduct in the workplace, the movement’s full promise has not been fulfilled, Sylvia Ann Hewlett argues. Showcasing new data on the incidence of sexual harassment and assault at work, she reveals how the movement has focused almost exclusively on white women and failed to support other vulnerable groups who are also targets of abuse. Black men, gay men and women, and Latinas experience particularly high rates of sexual harassment and assault. In addition to exploring the movement’s limitations, Hewlett examines the collateral damage inflicted by #MeToo. She looks at hits to the bottom line (lawsuits and settlements, tarnished brands, and stock devaluations) and hits to the talent pipeline. In particular she shows how male leaders, fearful of gossip and legal action, are increasingly skittish about sponsoring young women, no matter how high performing they are. This makes it much more likely that women will stall out mid-career and will deprive companies of diversity in the C-Suite and “gender smarts” around decision-making tables. Digging deep into examples that range from Fox News, Nike, and Google to CBS, Michigan State University, and the Catholic Church, Hewlett lays bare the financial losses associated with sexual misconduct scandals. No wonder corporate chief risk officers newly have #MeToo in their line of sight! A third of this book is devoted to solutions and Hewlett offers a three-pronged strategy, combining legal remedies with individual and corporate action steps that can be used to protect employees and businesses they work for. Drawing from companies as different as IBM and IPG she discusses “experiments at the edge” as well as more evolved initiatives that can help any corporation create a more equitable and safer environment. Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.

$2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America Audiobook

$2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America

Author: H. Luke Shaefer, Kathryn J. Edin Narrator: Allyson Johnson Release Date: September 2015

The story of a kind of poverty in America so deep that we, as a country, don't even think exists from a leading national poverty expert who defies convention (New York Times). Edin and Shaefer tell the stories of eight families who live on what is almost unimaginable-an income that falls below the World Bank definition of poverty in the developing world. Their stories need to be heard, especially as we head into our election year that will highlight the questions on income and inequality, and our commitment to making prosperity available to all. We have made great steps toward eliminating poverty around the world-extreme poverty has declined significantly and seems on track to continue to do so in the next decades. Jim Yong Kim of the World Bank estimates that extreme poverty can be eliminated in seventeen years. This is clearly cause for celebration. However, this good news can make us oblivious to the fact that there are, in the United States, a significant and growing number of families who live on less than $2.00 per person, per day. That figure, the World Bank measure of poverty, is hard to imagine in this country most of us spend more than that before we get to work or school in the morning. In $2.00 A Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America, Kathryn Edin and Luke Schaefer introduce us to people like Jessica Compton, who survives by donating plasma as often as ten times a month and spends hours with her young children in the public library so she can get access to an internet connection for job-hunting; and like Modonna Harris who lost the cashiers job she held for years, for the sake of $7.00 misplaced at the end of the day. They are the would-be working class, with hundreds of job applications submitted in recent months and thousands of work hours logged in past years. Twenty years after William Julius Wilson's When Work Disappears, it's still all about the work. But as Edin and Shaefer illuminate through incisive analysis and indelible human stories, the combination of a government safety net built on the ability to work and a low-wage labor market increasingly designed not to deliver a living wage has delivered a vicious one-two punch to the would-be working poor. More than a powerful expose of a troubling trend, $2.00 a Day delivers new evidence and new ideas to our central national debate on work, income inequality, and what to do about it.

1,000 Dollars & an Idea

Author: Sam Wyly Narrator: Phil Gigante Release Date: September 2008

"My work is to create companies and build them," writes Sam Wyly in this candid, engrossing memoir, which reveals how he established and expanded companies on the leading edge of advancements in technology, energy, retail, and investments over the last forty-five years. Wyly shares the process, relationships, struggles, and strategies that have made him one of the 1,000 wealthiest people in the world. From the hardships his parents faced trying to hold on to the family cotton farm during the Depression to the coaching he received on the high school football field, this self-made billionaire describes how his early years in Louisiana prepared him for what lay ahead. His sales experience with IBM and Honeywell in Dallas in the early 1960s gave him the idea to start the first "computer utility." Risking $1,000 of his savings, he founded University Computing in 1963 and took it public two years later, becoming a millionaire at the age of thirty. Part autobiography and part inspirational business guide, this audio is full of refreshing insights about what it takes to create, grow, and build successful companies.
