15 yr old boy earns $15,000 a month - how about you?
22 yr old college student pays off college debt in one month - what on earth is happening and why aren't more people like you in on it?
This is your time, your Opportunity. There is a world of opportunities out there for you and “trust me” when I say; the time is now!
The economy is changing, while many still proclaim gloom and doom in some parts of the world people are out there, people just like you who are taking advantage of opportunities to make money with the technology that you yourself and millions out there are so familiar with.
For the young and the old, but especially for the young who are born with an apparent inherent understanding of the technology used today – you need to read this.
Many today are still talking about how the economy is struggling, how the youth of this generation are losing hope for a brighter tomorrow. Jobs are hard to come by for young people, there being taken by seniors because most cannot afford to retire. The fear of rising debt and the debt burden that is being placed on the next generation grows daily – but I would like to point out that, things are not that bad. That many are finding interesting new and fun ways of making money, of creating a future for themselves. Many of these entrepreneurial spirits are teens, young adults ranging in age of 13 to 22.You do not need to be Tech savvy.
While many are arguing on the news that the government needs to do something about the high rising prices of a college education, one young man paid off his college debt with the simple use of the technology you and I use today on a daily basis. Is he a genius? No. Is he alone in what he is doing? Not at all, there are many others who are doing just as well or even better than this young man.
Ask yourself these questions:
Am I using the technology available to me to its fullest?
Do I know how to use this advancing technology well?
If others are doing it, why can’t I?
Consider this: if you own and use a computer or a smartphone, you are halfway there.

Building an Enterprise Architecture Practice provides practical advice on how to develop your enterprise architecture practice. The authors developed different tools and models to support organizations in implementing and professionalizing an enterprise architecture function. The application of these tools and models in many different organizations forms the basis for this book. The result is a hands-on book that will help you to avoid certain pitfalls and achieve success with enterprise architecture.
A lot of organizations nowadays have a team of enterprise architects at work but struggle with questions like:
• How do I show the added value of enterprise architecture?
• How do I determine what specific architectures are necessary for my organization?
• What steps do I need to take to improve my enterprise architecture practice?
• How do I fulfill the role of enterprise architect?
These questions are answered in this book and illustrated with a lot of best practices.
After reading the book the reader will have a better understanding of what makes enterprise architecture successful and will possess the tools to analyse his own situation and build an enterprise architecture practice accordingly.
This book clearly describes how to establish an architecture practice that delivers value for an organization. The authors demonstrate a wealth of experience and a deep understanding of the multifaceted nature of this challenging task and they provide sound advice on how to avoid the many pitfalls that may be encountered along the way.
Recognising that there is no 'one-size-fits-all' approach, they show how to deploy a range of practical tools and approaches that will enable each organization to create its own road map to success. In particular, their Maturity Matrix is invaluable for balancing architecture priorities and targeting improvements. The book makes a significant contribution to the professionalization of the architect role.
Sally Bean, Enterprise Architecture Consultant
Too many books on enterprise architecture leave one in a state of mental fuzziness: After reading them, the reader has learned a lot of impressive words but still does not know how to design an enterprise architecture. This step by step guide to DYA is different.
It provides pragmatic guidelines for developing enterprise architecture and presents a maturity model that helps the users of DYA to state realistic goals and to outline feasible steps to achieve these goals. Particularly useful is the emphasis on a coherent enterprise architecture vision, including the value added by the architecture. I warmly recommend this book to practicing enterprise architects.

With foreword by Jim Williams, author of ten internationally published novels including the Booker Prize nominated Scherzo.
The New Author is an excellent piece of writing, combining deceptive simplicity, lucidity and charm: a trick which in practice is very difficult to pull off. The book is also informed by considerable intelligence and analysis founded on firsthand experience.
Barnes explicitly warns against the trap that engagement at the required level can become obsessive and time consuming, and in a couple of nice vignettes he makes his point with wit and style. The New Author is a terrific companion for independent e-publishing and I recommend it.
There are at least three reasons why you might want to buy this book:
1. you want to be an author;
2. you have already written a novel and want to publish it as an ebook;
3. you want to promote yourself as an author.
This book is a beginner’s guide on how to do the above. It isn’t a magic elixir for foolproof million copy marketing of your ebook. It is based upon the experiences of this author and a broad-based peer group.
I have to warn you right now, this is not going to be an easy journey. Less of a country stroll, more of a trek up Kilimanjaro. The good news is that almost anyone can trek up Kilimanjaro with the right support, appropriate equipment and a positive attitude. See you at the top.
The New Author is a non-fiction work of 44,000 words.
What this book does and does not contain
The scope of this edition is deliberately limited to basic novel writing guidelines, first practical steps in building and operating a social media platform for authors, and the process of epublishing a novel on Amazon KDP and other market channels via Smashwords. A list of recommended further reading is provided that covers the subject matter, should readers wish to delve deeper into these areas.
This edition of The New Author does not contain a method approach to novel writing, advice on publishing in print or a prescriptive ‘silver bullet’ approach to ebook marketing.
The internet is a labyrinth of blogs, websites and web-based tools. User interfaces are constantly being improved, upgraded and changed. No screenshots have been included in this book in order to avoid early obsolescence and to keep the format and page display simple and readable. Hyperlinks to the internet have not been used for similar reasons and to avoid accidental use by the increasing number of ereaders with touch screens.

The Sure Thing tells the complete story of how he managed to organise the biggest gamble in racing history – and how he then followed up with yet another audacious scheme in January 2014.
