02/01/16 Greetings everyone. Progress continues as my 8th Audiobook; 7 TRANSFORMATION STORIES: Little Book 2 (Career-coaching Series) about Disability's Edge FOR PARENTS OF MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS with Cerebral Palsy (Career Coaching) is now available on audible.com and iTunes. The 4th book in a series of 11, I'm proud to have narrated and produced this wonderful self-help book by author Jim Hasse. In this transformation book, Hasse identifies seven career builders parents can use to help their middle school student with cerebral palsy learn how to leverage disability’s competitive edge, a key factor in disability development and career readiness. Jim, a Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) who has athetoid cerebral palsy, illustrates each of those seven bits of career advice with a transformational story from his own experiences. For each short story, he defines the issue at hand for learning how to live and work well with cerebral palsy, shows how his parents and others helped.

Neither Amanda nor Daddy have their normal energetic smile. Not because they were tired, but because Mommy didn't make it home last night. Cancer unexpectedly took her. Now Daddy must find a way to care for three small children and his six-year-old son while holding down a new executive position within his company. For the moment, making pancakes is thing that keeps their family together.

I have 25 free copies available for friends and family before they hit the shelves & thousands of audiobook listener's ears. Here's the link to the audiobook: http://www.audible.com/pd/Self-Development/Self-Esteem-3rd-Edition-Cure-for-Anxiety-Self-Esteem-Negative-Thinking-Regret-Insecurity-Audiobook/B016R14LGE/ref=a_pd_Religi_c4_1_2_i?ie=UTF8&pf_rd_r=0J3Z390RE51693GBEGBA&pf_rd_m=A2ZO8JX97D5MN9&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_i=detail-page&pf_rd_p=1814705522&pf_rd_s=center-4
Self-esteem is a big problem that everyone on this planet deals with at some level, and it all comes down to wanting to be loved and not feeling like we are enough. We are always enough, but it's our perceptions of ourselves that cripple us and hold us back from living the lives we truly want to live. I have given you the best strategies and techniques that I know that can help anyone with insecurities, self-esteem, anxiety, and depression, and these are all effective strategies.

09/24/15: My 5th audiobook: "Law Of Attraction", a top ranked Amazon book, is complete and undergoing final tech inspection before being available on audible.com and iTunes.apple.com in 2 weeks! I have 25 free copies available for friends and family before they hit the shelves & thousands of audiobook listener's ears. Here's the link to the audiobook: http://www.audible.com/pd/Religion-Spirituality/Law-of-Attraction-Third-Edition-Audiobook/B016QMGZMM/ref=a_search_c4_1_1_srTtl?qid=1451424619&sr=1-1
This book is the new version of the Law of Attraction and will teach you simple lessons and rituals that will help receive anything you want. I have read hundreds of books, listened to plenty of self development tapes and this is by far the easiest and quickest way to get what you want. Most of the time we focus on what we don't want and that's why we keep attracting. I really believe that you will have a lot of epiphanies throughout this book and learn a new way of living in a higher frequency.
Onward & Upward,
