Robbins has a brilliant way of using metaphor and story to illustrate even the most complex financial concepts—making them simple and actionable. With expert advice on our most important financial decisions, Robbins is an advocate for the reader, dispelling the myths that often rob people of their financial dreams. Tony Robbins walks readers of every income level through the steps to become financially free by creating a lifetime income plan.

I am a firm believer that READERS are LEADERS and Education is potential POWER, it must be used if we want to reach our destiny.

  • Surviving and Thriving: How to Get Through Difficult Times

    in Books

    April 30, 2015 - LIVING A RICHER LIFE ~ Life Changing Talk Radio
    THEME: Surviving and Thriving: How to Get Through Difficult Times
    INTERVIEW GUEST: Myra Jolivet
    Myra Jolivet currently serves as Vice President of Public Affairs for MLS Listings, Inc. She is a native of the San Francisco Bay Area with colorful Louisiana Creole roots. She began writing stories as soon as she was able to master the big pencil and wide lines. For more than a decade, Myra was an award-winning television news reporter and anchor, covering local and national stories. She is also the author of "Pushed Times, Chewing Pepper." The book is described as a fast-paced, crime-mystery thriller that gives an insightful peek into the Louisiana-Creole culture and the transformation of Sarah,the main character.
    THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE: 
    Most of us consider ourselves ordinary people capable of doing ordinary things in life. But, life is a series of peaks and valleys. Sometimes we are up, sometimes we are down.  This is considered normal. But, what happens when our lives are no longer ordinary and difficult times really set in? The most common advice is not to dwell in silence. According to Wendy Mogel, PhD, a clinical psychologist based in Los Angeles and the author of The Blessing of a Skinned Knee, "Obstacles, setbacks, and losses are a vital part of experiencing the fullness, and even sweetness of life."  However, sometimes in order to survive and thrive, we must also find a way to "push" ourselves through difficult times in our life. In her new novel, Myra Jolivet eloquently tells a suspense-filled story, wrapped around a Creole expression, "pushed times make a monkey chew pepper."

  • The Author Chat Show with Lynda D. Brown

    in Books

    Meet author Jasma Starks. I'll be interviewing her on the show about her new book, Purpose Will Prevail: Principals To Activate And Walk In Your Divine Purpose.
    About the book:
    Your purpose was the catalyst for your birth. Prior to being conceived in your mother’s womb, your life already had meaning. Because we’re human, however, we were bound to sin and become victims of fear. Sin separates us from God, fear keeps us limited to living unfilled lives, and both subjects us to silence. When silent, we allow the enemy to bully us and keep us in bondage.Before purpose can be born or released, there is a process. Purpose Will Prevail walks you through that process by giving you a set of principles that will help you acknowledge your authority and loosen the grips of fear and addiction so that you are freed to activate and walk in your divine purpose. In this book, Jasma Starks challenges each of us to take full responsibility in aligning our lives with that of God’s word so that we may not only discover our purpose, but fulfill and protect it as well.
    About the author:
    A powerful prayer warrior, Jasma Starks has the remarkable ability to make God’s word plain and understandable. With a heart to spread the gospel throughout the world and elevate the name of Jesus Christ, she has devoted her life to teaching this generation of believers how to hear the voice of God and align their ways with His in order to take their lives from mediocre to meaningful.
    Currently residing in St. Louis, Missouri, Jasma seeks, wholeheartedly, to please God in all her ways while implementing progressive change in her circle of influence. In March of 2015, she birthed Purpose will Prevail to activate passionate people to walk in their divine purpose. For more information, be sure to visit www.JasmaStarks.com.

    Meet author David Merkatz, he's the author of the book Wrongly Charged: A Look at the Legal System.
    This book is making quite an impact due to some of the recent  headlines dealing with police and abuse of power.
    About the book:
    What would you do if you were arrested and wrongly charged with a crime? It can happen in the blink of an eye. It’s not supposed to happen in the United States, but it can at any time. After being advised by his attorney in 2013 that his new marketing strategy was legal, Florida locksmith David Merkatz was shocked to learn he was under criminal investigation. Then he was arrested and charged with money laundering and an organized scheme to defraud. With the flip of a switch, he was facing a 20-year prison sentence. He was terrified. Life as he knew it was over, and it happened in an instant. But David Merkatz was determined to fight back.
    About the author:
    Until 2013, David Merkatz made his living as a locksmith in Coconut Creek, FL. Life, he thought, was pretty good. While there were some trademark issues with his business, he was making a living and enjoying his life. That all changed August of 2013, when police arrested David Merkatz and charged him and two of his fellow locksmiths, Peter Lomagistro and Joshua Levy, with a host of crimes ranging from money laundering to petty theft.
