A Season with Mom: Love, Loss, and the Ultimate Baseball Adventure Audiobook

A Season with Mom: Love, Loss, and the Ultimate Baseball Adventure

Author: Katie Russell Newland Narrator: Gabe Wicks, Katie Newland Release Date: April 2021

"Maybe you've been putting your own dreams on hold. Maybe you're recovering from your own illness. Maybe you've lost someone you care about . . . After reading this book, you'll be eager to imagine your own amazing next season." -- Peyton Manning, from the foreword A Season with Mom offers an intimate, true story about the bond shared between a mother and daughter, a road trip to all 30 Major League Baseball (MLB) parks, and the importance of relishing every joy and struggle along the way. The book is highly recommended for - mothers and daughters - cancer survivors - baseball and sports fans of all ages - anyone who has experienced loss . . . and maybe fallen in love along the way Join Katie as she travels more than 30,000 miles to all 30 MLB parks in a single season, a rare feat covered by the likes of ESPN. Katie shares letters written to her mom, who died of cancer before the two of them could go on the adventure of a lifetime together. During the journey, Katie beautifully illustrates the brevity of life, the impetus of adventure, and the clarity that comes by watching America's favorite pastime. A Season with Mom reminds us that in life, as in baseball, sometimes you strike out, but sometimes you hit home runs. And even if the wait is longer than you'd hoped--like it was for the Chicago Cubs' long-sought World Series win--dreams can come true. Accompanying black-and-white photographs are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

Entrepreneurial Leadership: The Art of Launching New Ventures, Inspiring Others, and Running Stuff Audiobook

Entrepreneurial Leadership: The Art of Launching New Ventures, Inspiring Others, and Running Stuff

Author: Joel Peterson Narrator: Gabe Wicks, Josh Childs Release Date: April 2020

Make a lasting impact by launching new initiatives, inspiring others, and championing innovative approaches with this from-the-trenches guide by trusted executive mentor, entrepreneur, and leadership expert Joel Peterson. Many leaders see their roles as presiders/managers, with a primary focus on keeping results consistent with past performance and on budget. These kinds of leaders make important contributions but rarely leave a mark on the businesses they serve. For those wanting to make a lasting impact, new skills are required. They need to learn to launch new initiatives, inspire others, and champion innovative approaches. Joel Peterson calls these higher-level leaders "entrepreneurial leaders," and they create durable enterprises that deliver on their promise. After three careers, four decades of marriage and seven kids, and demanding roles as CFO, CEO, chairman, lead director, adjunct professor, founder, author, entrepreneur and investor, Joel Peterson is often sought as a mentor and coach by leaders and aspiring leaders. He has worked with all types of leaders and considers the entrepreneurial leader to be the highest level of influence. Peterson lays out a path to achieving this summit, with a series of leadership maps organized around the four essential basecamps on the path to Entrepreneurial Leadership: - Establishing Trust - Creating a Sense of Mission - Building a Cohesive Team - Executing and Delivering Results These core philosophies, while easy to summarize, can be extremely difficult to implement. As Peterson says: "This book of maps and mindsets is aimed at those who hope to lead others, help them achieve their best, break new barriers, change the status quo, create a legacy, develop a brand, and enjoy a life-altering experience." Let Entrepreneurial Leadership guide you on your journey. Accompanying charts are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

No, You Can't: Aim Low and Give Up Winning for Good Audiobook

No, You Can't: Aim Low and Give Up Winning for Good

Author: Dave Dunseath Narrator: Gabe Wicks Release Date: April 2020

Is it time for you to just give up? Because every time you aim low, you'll feel like you've died and gone to Disneyland. You'll be in a place where you're never concerned about hard work, a place where you never feel guilty for goofing off all day, a place where nobody expects anything from you, a place where choosing to eat a third corn dog--or not--will be the hardest decision of your day. No, You Can't also offers such crumbs of wisdom as: - Hope is a crutch. Crutches are only good for getting two things: awesome parking at the mall and sympathy dates. Otherwise, they will just slow you down. - You can't be a failure when you have no hope of winning. - Whoever said nothing is easy has never tried quitting. Aiming low is as easy as breathing. You can practically do it without thinking. And the skills required to get there--like quitting and making excuses--take less time to learn than you might imagine. All you need is No, You Can't and the stark realization that you don't really want to "be all that you can be." In fact, your expectations can go so low that anything you DO achieve is completely surprising.

How Do You Kill 11 Million People?: Why the Truth Matters More Than You Think Audiobook

How Do You Kill 11 Million People?: Why the Truth Matters More Than You Think

Author: Andy Andrews Narrator: Andy Andrews, Gabe Wicks Release Date: March 2020

Become an informed, passionate citizen who demands honesty and integrity from our leaders or suffer the consequences of our own ignorance and apathy. In this updated and expanded audio version of the New York Times bestselling nonpartisan book, Andy Andrews urges you to believe that seeking and discerning the truth really, really matters and that believing lies is the most dangerous thing you can do. You'll be challenged to become a more "careful student" of the past, seeking accurate, factual accounts of events and decisions that illuminate choices you face now. By considering how the Nazi German regime was able to carry out over eleven million institutional killings between 1933 and 1945, Andrews advocates for an informed population that demands honesty and integrity from its leaders and from each other. He includes several key documents written by our Founding Fathers as examples of America's core principles that present and future leadership should live up to and embrace. We can no longer measure a leader's worth by the yardsticks provided by the left or the right. Instead, we must use an unchanging standard: the pure, unvarnished truth.

Better Together: How Women and Men Can Heal the Divide and Work Together to Transform the Future

Author: Danielle Strickland Narrator: Danielle Strickland, Gabe Wicks Release Date: February 2020

An impassioned plea and workable solution for women and men to imagine a better world, embrace their differences, find ways to end oppression, and learn how to work better together. Is it possible after the #MeToo and #ChurchToo movements for men and women to actually find hope and healing and create a better world-together? We are at a strategic cultural intersection with relationships between women and men eroding. While it is good for women to expose their pain, abuse, and experiences of gender inequity and oppression, what often follows is a never-ending cycle of blame, accusations, denial, avoidance, and, ultimately, devastation for everyone involved. Better Together is a beacon of hope in this challenging storm. Author Danielle Strickland offers practical steps toward a real and workable solution that include two things needed for change: - a vision of a better world - an understanding of oppression Understanding how oppression works, whether it relates to gender, religion, socioeconomic status, or race, is an important part of undoing it. Let Danielle inspire you to believe that change is possible and equip you with ideas and strategies that will compel you to action.

Next Generation Leadership: How to Ensure Young Talent Will Thrive with Your Organization Audiobook

Next Generation Leadership: How to Ensure Young Talent Will Thrive with Your Organization

Author: Adam Kingl Narrator: Gabe Wicks, Jakob Lewis Release Date: February 2020

Employers who refuse to adapt to the expectations of younger generations are losing out on top talent, as they leave for positions at companies with more modern practices. Learn what companies need to do to fit into the new normal in the workplace. Generation Y sees the world differently than any other generation in modern memory. And nowhere is this more evident than in the workplace. The astronomical shifts that this generation has seen in the economy, technology, and the world have changed what they want from life and work--which is not a 9-5 existence for forty-plus years, leading to a typical retirement at sixty-five. What older generations call a poor work ethic from a spoiled generation, Gen Y sees as a different way of doing things. Companies that don't get on board risk losing the diverse, young talent that is critical for them to be able to compete. Companies that take the time to listen realize that what Gen Y is asking for isn't that crazy; in fact, it's better in many ways. - A demand for work-life balance isn't a cry for fewer work hours--it's a cry to be able to work from outside the office beyond a rigid 9-5 schedule (which can lead, ironically, to Gen Y employees working even more hours than you expected). - Leaving a job after a couple years isn't an inability to commit--it's a need to learn more, expand their experience, and develop their career at a faster pace, something that is helpful to companies that hire those individuals, including your own. - Elevating nontraditional benefits over financial benefits is a step toward creating an emotional connection to the company where employees spend the majority of their time and invest significant mental and emotional efforts. - The need to work for a company with a purpose is a reflection of the power that social media has had on the social consciousness. This audiobook will explore what's behind these shifts in the character of the emerging workforce. It shows that, as Gen Y assumes managerial positions, the nature of leadership and business will change over the next few decades in irrevocable and profound ways. Accompanying charts and tables are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

Your New Name: Saying Goodbye to the Labels That Limit Audiobook

Your New Name: Saying Goodbye to the Labels That Limit

Author: Esther Fleece Allen Narrator: Gabe Wicks, Hayley Cresswell Release Date: January 2020

Life is full of labels that limit, but God has a new name He longs for you to hear - a name that boldly declares freedom from your past and hope for your future. Join Esther Fleece Allen, bestselling author of No More Faking Fine, in this profound exploration of your God-given identity that no label can limit and no circumstance can shake. Too often, our identity gets tangled up with our circumstances, and suddenly, the truth of who we are is colored by our relationship status, our job title, the shame of our past, or what others say about us. People might pin toxic, untrue labels on your back. Life might knock you down. And you might even wrongly label yourself. But God never does. Our God-given identity is the truest thing about us, and God spends a lot of time in the Bible telling us who we are. It's time to take Him at His word. God's names for you are not post-it-note provisions; they are names to be studied, taken to heart, and believed, all in the journey of becoming your truest self just as He created you to be. Let Your New Name be your first step in this journey of a lifetime. Discussion questions are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.
