April B. Jones

The Life You Crave: The Business of You is a self-help book penned by April B. Jones, aimed at helping readers achieve their goals. In it, Jones helps her readers visualize their wildest dreams for the future and plan a way to conquer them little by little, using “stepping stones, not leaping stones.” Through each step, Jones guides her readers as they rid themselves of naysayers, take responsibility for their own lives, and create their own success. She also provides journal questions and note pages so that, upon completion, readers know exactly what they will do to achieve the life they crave.

The Life You Crave is an interesting self-help book, largely because it relies heavily on the “self” aspect of that. There is plenty of advice to be found, sure, but April B. Jones’s approach is one more about encouragement than supplying answers. She prompts the readers with straightforward questions and guides them as they brainstorm solutions to their own problems. The Life You Crave is open-ended enough to apply to everyone who reads it, while still being personal in its scope.

The exercises and writing prompts are also a lovely inclusion. This is not a book for the idle reader; rather, it encourages readers to get involved and stay involved as they read. April B. Jones has given her readers a wonderful tool with which to shape their own lives, without ever presuming that she can magically solve everything for them. It is a book about finding one’s own strength and determination to solve their problems on their own, which again, sets it apart from many other members of the self-help genre. Paired with a conversational narrative and theme of friendly advice, The Life You Crave: The Business of You is a great read for anyone looking to make some positive changes in their life – so, in truth, everyone.

Just 2 Choices: It’s That Simple

Click to get your copy!

Book Description:

Open the door to one of life’s greatest little secrets—that your point of power is in EVERY choice. Just 2 Choices shows how to transform your everyday, ORDINARY choices into EXTRAORDINARY choices every day—so you can live that EXTRAORDINARY life that you desire… choice by choice by choice. Contains the original, breakthrough, full-color graphics about choice to rapidly accelerate personal growth with instant “I get it!” insights into the quality of your everyday choices. Full-color charts, diagrams and scales—such as the Emotional-Vibrational Color Scale® and Vibrational Tune-up System™—provide immediate, clear, uplifting feedback that shows step-by-step how to make each choice to create the great life that you want in health, wealth, relationships, career and more! Just 2 Choices is a guidebook for everyone—a blueprint for understanding the power of every choice and a roadmap to manifesting the great life that you desire!


Rico Racosky

Whether at the controls of a F16 jet fighter–or now at the controls of a sophisticated jet airliner, Rico Racosky knows that every flight choice he makes is based on one of two choices. He may make multiple split-second decisions as he evaluates the instruments in front of him that show the aircraft’s immediate performance of speed, altitude, and navigation, yet each choice he makes ultimately comes down to a “yes” or “no” input decision based on just two choices. From Rico‘s point of view, all  of life is choice and happens at the speed of choice–a perspective he recently shared at Harvard University as a “choice expert” thought leader guest speaker to Harvard Business School’s Entrepreneurship Clubs.
 
Choice is the heart of his unique and vital new book, Just 2 Choices…It Is Your Life, which is the forefront of what promises to be a global movement, the “Choice Revolution™.” The book uses a simple, step-by-step system of thought that shows people how to instantly transform their daily, ordinary choices into those powerful extra-ordinary choices that create an extraordinary life! Just 2 Choices un-complicates and demystifies “choice” and shines the bright light of crystal clear thinking to illuminate a path to success for the reader. After all, what keeps most people stuck in life is failing to make Conscious YES Choices, thus allowing their default choice–the NO choice, the one representing the “same old choice” –to continue to run their lives over and over every day.

Time Isn’t the Problem, You Are

Click to get your copy!

Book Description:

If you’re not enjoying success, then it’s time to look in the mirror and ask “Why?” The answer is probably staring right back at you. You’re probably the reason you haven’t achieved your dreams.

We all start out in life expecting to live the life we want. For many, if not most, those early hopes get dashed when the realities of rent payments, nasty bosses, indifferent spouses, unexpected illness, or uncontrollable events turn our dreams into disillusionment. Instead of thriving, life just becomes a march of survival and people grow older and bitter as they remember their early hopes as wistful memories. The more cynical will even mock their younger selves for believing they could ever have had what they see others achieving.

Yet there are countless examples of people who are living the life of their dreams. We see them on TV all the time―people like Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Richard Branson, and George Clooney, to name a few. They manage to juggle work, family life, community life, and personal pursuits in seemingly effortless fashion, with a smile on their face, purpose in their walk, and passion in their attitude.

Anyone can achieve what they want, just like these people do. There’s nothing extraordinary about them. They have no elixirs. What they do have, however, are qualities that keep them performing at their highest level, qualities that anyone, including you, can have … if you know how to develop them.

Time Isn’t the Problem, You Are is the twenty-first century guidebook for everyone who feels stuck in their life and wants to change but doesn’t quite know where to begin. It’s a thorough, entertaining, informative, easy to understand yet challenging and action-inducing program that’s designed to get you to start living the life of your dreams right now.

Yolanda De Iuliis

Yolanda De Iuliis was born in North Ayrshire, Scotland, in 1985. She grew up with an Italian/Irish background which soon led to an awareness of identity confusion within herself. From the age of 20 she left the countryside to explore not only city life but to encounter the other side of the world and for over ten years has been travelling to every continent to gain as much knowledge and experience as possible. After ten years of writing and collecting her autobiographical poetry she published Underneath my Soul (2015) which shows her growing from adolescence to adulthood using only poetry as a means of telling her story.

De Iuliis resides in her home town of Irvine, Ayrshire, for the time being and her current academic venture is Classical Studies combined with Modern Greek. French and Greek philosophies have also been studied and observed to motivate her mind in producing different thoughts and ideas. Her passion to write and provide an insight for others is not only her mission but her reason to exist.

Open Case:

The Propelled Heart: Moving From Injury to Insight

 

Click to get your copy!

Book Description:

The Propelled Heart: Injury to Insight begins with a prologue that describes a sailing trip when I was 18 years old and compares that trip to the journey each of us takes in life. How facing fear with calm and choosing to rise to face any challenge. The rest of the book consists of two parts. 

Part One, entitled ‘Injury to Impasse’ is autobiographical and recounts my childhood wound of sexual abuse and my Mother’s reaction when I told her what had happened. There are chapters on connection and relationship with others, and some recounting of memories and the way they came to me. 

The autobiography continues with stories of turning points when chiropractic came into my life and when the ‘monster’ office I created needed to be escaped from. How Rubenfeld Synergy and the integration of myself into my own life evolved my work with others. The cyclic pattern that has reoccurred over my life is recognized and there is understanding of the meaning and significance for myself and others. 

Included is a chapter with a ‘message from spirit’ that details how each of us needs to maintain a connection with spirit. My current work and mission in life is detailed in the last chapter of Part One. 

Part Two, entitled ‘Impasse to Insight’ includes teachings on the metaphorical quality of physical symptoms, recurring emotional states, recurring situations in life, and organ dis-ease. There is discussion of selfvalue and self-respect and how these are related and required for a full expression in one’s life of their unique Self. There is a dialogue on the duty of each person to live their individual lives to the fullest and debate over the presence of judgment and betrayal between people and within one’s self. In conclusion, there is a transcript of a sample conversation with the authors’ inner child. 

Each chapter in Part Two includes exercises to allow the reader to explore their own life, their own feelings and situations. The hope is that this book will allow others to see the wounds in their life as portals to the gifts they may share with the world due to the insight gained through their journey. The introduction of exercises to explore various metaphorical aspects of life are provided to encourage seeing the struggles of everyday life as opportunities to learn and grow.

Transition: Mastering Life

Transition: Mastering Life’s Movements

 

transition

Click here to get your copy!

Book Description:

What do we do when we find ourselves “caught in the middle of a life shift” that awakened without our permission?

How do we navigate between “hearing” and the manifestation of the Promise?”

Transition articulates the disciplines, reasonings, and divine logic that surrounds this human and spiritual “phenomenon,” and provides solutions on how to manifest the Greatest Significance imaginable though the Journey of Life and Spirit!


Janelle’s Review:

Stan Ellis kicks off his new book, Transition: Mastering Life’s Movements, with a unique example of mastering transition via a story about the Los Angeles Lakers from the 1980s. It grabs the reader’s attention and makes one think, but the overall message and the depth of Ellis’ book moves far beyond a basketball game. The premise instead is focused on the vast amount of transitions or seasons that everyone goes through in life. Ellis says, “Transition is when one season of your life abruptly ends and you’re forced to enter a new season.” Having a major change and a major period of transition forced upon you is often a breaking point for people. They need help. This book helps readers bring God more fully into their lives during such challenging times. Filled with Christian teachings and insight, Transition opens reader’s hearts and minds to new levels of support and guidance while learning how to embrace the transitions they may be currently facing and the ones they will face in the future.

At the end of each chapter in Transition: Mastering Life’s Movements, author and strategic life-shifter, Stan Ellis shares numerous “power points” in addition to the highlighted nuggets of wisdom he shares throughout the chapter. This is a book readers can pick up, flip to a page, and quickly and easily find powerful Christian guidance along with practical motivation. Ellis shares that, “Life is a series of transitions, and your ability to master transition is the key to you mastering the human experience.” Furthermore, he expresses that “transition should cause a transformation of your ‘self-view’, ‘God-view’, and ‘world-view’.” That may feel like a big undertaking, but Ellis walks you through it one step at a time. Transition, Mastering Life’s Movements is a fairly quick read, but it is jam packed with profound concepts and Godly counsel.


The Mastermind behind Transition: Mastering Life’s Movements:

Stan Ellis

Stan Ellis is an innovative strategist, compelling teacher, dynamic thought provoker, and inspiring motivator. He’s been studying and communicating creative strategies and solutions for the past twenty-five (25) years.  He is known for helping people think in new ways that they’ve never considered so they can advance to places they have never gone.  He shares his life with his wife Evelyn, and their three (3) young-adult daughters (Sharnae, Chera & Leah).

Book Description:

Give your life a makeover!

We’re all fascinated with the concept of the makeover. The media is pushing it as the quick fix, but that avoids the real issue and sweeps it under the rug. A hair or fashion makeover on the outside will only be as successful as the mindset and attitude changes you make on the inside. 

Change of any kind, no matter what, should come from your mind and grow into a well-adjusted decision before any type of physical transformation. This thought-provoking book will guide you through the journey of transforming not only your style, but your life!


Notes:

Your hair is the symbol of who YOU are.” – Patrice Bisiot  

It is vital that you trust your hair stylist. After all, who do you willingly allow to touch your hair? There is a level of intimacy created with your hairstylist, but consider this even on a deeper level…those that you need to trust the most and allow the closest to you – how do you go about developing that relationship?  Mind Your Hair takes you on a journey that is much deeper than just the way your hair looks 🙂


The Mastermind behind Mind Your Hair:

Patrice Bisiot

French native Patrice Bisiot moved to the US from Paris to pursue his dream of becoming a master hairstylist. His experience, education, and dedication have earned him worldwide recognition as a top expert in his field. His clientele includes celebrities, models, and entertainment industry professionals. When not practicing his craft, he travels the world giving seminars and lectures, spreading his passion for the career he loves.

During his rare free time, Patrice relaxes by painting in his own unique style, with oil being his favorite medium. He also enjoys a wide variety of music and movies and can spend an afternoon engrossed in the big screen. Still a kid at heart, he loves Marvel superheroes and reads the comic books whenever he can. As he says, “It’s in my DNA—because I love the idea of saving the world, making sure everyone is okay. I always want to know how I can help, what I can do to fix the situation.” He often donates his time with different charities, usually those that focus on helping children in some way.

Currently Patrice lives a bicoastal life, with residences in Beverly Hills and Manhattan.
