    Suze Orman

    in Finance

    It was at Borders Books on Chicago’s State Street where women and men were lined up literally around the corner to get a glimpse at the Money-Making Maven, Suze Orman. Signing autographs, smiling at strangers and shaking every hand that reached out to her made a successful book signing on The Road to Wealth.
    This book hit the New York Times Bestseller’s list within its first weeks release, making Suze Orman a bona fide financial superstar! Suze shared with me, “Out of all the books I’ve written, I’m lovin’ this baby more than any of them! 9 Steps to Financial Freedom hit number one on the New York Time Bestsellers list which was an absolute phenomenon in itself but everybody said, ‘that’s not so hard – anybody can do that if you’re on Oprah 11 times.’ Courage to Be Rich comes out and goes right to number one on the New York Times Bestsellers list and everybody says, ‘oh, that’s not that hard – you had an entire PBS special behind you. Road to Wealth comes out and one week after it comes out without any publicity whatsoever except for 4 minutes on the Today Show which is not enough to make a New York Times Bestseller; it hit the New York Times Bestsellers list within one week! What that says to me is that people are buying me now not being sold to me.”

    Design the Second Half of Your Life: The Innovative Woman

    in Entrepreneur

    A Real Women on Health online radio show interview with Kelley Connors, MPH, Womens’ Life Coach and Betsy Furler, CEO, Communications Circles
    Betsy Furler started out as a speech pathologist and delighted in helping young children and adults improve their ability to do well at school and feel good about themselves in their early years. However, as much as she enjoyed “being” a speech pathologist, she listened to her  heart which inspired her and to expand her capacity beyond the school walls.
    It turns out that by experimenting with technology, she found herself immersed in the new field of digital health including using applications for a more inclusive society.  Her interest grew as she witnessed the use of digital technology by a broader population of people, including the disabled and elderly to improve their health and wellbeing.
    Today, she shares her knowledge about using technology and app development to educate others to make a difference for the growing elderly population.  She has spoken at many national and international conferences on the use of technology and disabilities including SXSWInteractive,
    While we sometimes get overwhelmed with the idea of reinventing ourself, by integrating the past with our emerging passions, we can see that all that is required is tuning in to your own desires and believing in what stirs you.
    The big question is: what is stirring inside you must be revealed with action, trying and learning. It’s all about curiosity and experimentation to live the journey you desire!

    John Rubino with Kerry Lutz--Tulip Backed Crypto-Currencies?

    in Business News

    What can you say about crypto-currencies that hasn't been said already. However, Kerry and I are proposing a new form of crypto backed up by Tulips, preferably the Dutch variety. After all, Tulip prices only go up, right? And what of all those ICO's (Initial Coin Offerings) that are headed to the moon and back. Just today Bancor raised $153 million. Pretty good work if you can get it. 
    Now Amazon is taking over Wholier Than Thou Foods. What could possibly go wrong. Just take an old fashioned business, add robots and internet ordering and make a zillion dollars. It always works out in the long run, but then again in the long run we're all dead.

    Slash and burn: tax cuts for the wealthy and the next war in the Middle East

    in Business

    Our pre-Thanksgiving show is dedicated to two major topics: the effort to slash taxes for the richest Americans and the unfolding regional struggle between Saudi Arabia and Iran. Both of these ongoing political events are potentially game-changing in their impact and are worth your attention.
    In the discussion, Rinaldo mentions an article published by the Academy in 2007 titled “Iraq” – Exit from a quagmire. Later in the show he also mentions an article on the fallacy of so-called “Trickle-down Economics,” which is titled Saving the U.S. economy with “trickle-up” economics.
    Consider bringing an article from The Optimist Daily to your Thanksgiving dinner – its the perfect way to get people talking about what is possible and real progress.
