If there was one specific formula to make a business of people work, and if such were, in fact, the key to reaching financial freedom as quickly as possible - regardless of our initial talent, type of product, the negativity on the Internet, or any crisis - would it be worth knowing? This book portrays twenty years of the author’s journey - entirely dedicated to the Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) industry - from a failed first attempt to the successful foundation of several companies, all related to network marketing. The number of prospects that are interviewed and recruited on a daily basis in such a business is simply overwhelming and arguably has no comparison to any other that involves people. The information contained in “My Business of People, 20 Years Later” represents an unrivaled education, a “doctorate” of sorts, for any person interested in learning how to lead others. Its teachings, which stem from the mastery of managing various successful networks, are not only useful within the realm of network marketing but are relevant to other businesses of people, such as insurance sales, timeshare sales, stock trading, public relations, or any project in which a prosperous and humane entrepreneur is in demand. This book has several chapters dedicated exclusively to understanding the conditioning all of us are exposed to as children in the subjects of abundance and poverty; therefore, it could be valuable for a parent who wants to raise more confident and prosperous children. Such information could also benefit anyone who, in spite of not being familiar with MLM, wishes to re-program their mind by learning and understanding very specific wealth-generating habits. By the end of this book, it is likely that your concept of yourself, as well as of people in general, will CHANGE dramatically, allowing you to understand what adjustments are necessary to considerably shorten the road to financial freedom, and, more importantly, which practical and easy-to-remember actions will make those changes permanent. This book shares uncompromised values and contains original concepts, and on occasion will be brutally honest. More than a motivational/promotional book, this is a never-before-created educational tool, born of the author’s need to find an ethical, intelligent, effective and stimulating way to attain wealth through a business of massive duplication, such as a network marketing business. Education is power. Your time has come. The peak is closer than you think... Enjoy.

AUTHOR'S PREFERRED EDITION!
A cozy paranormal romance by USA Today bestselling author Mindy Klasky.
Librarian-witch Jane Madison is learning a magical lesson the hard way: use it or lose it! Juggling major deadlines at work and a jam-packed social schedule, Jane has taken a break from her arcane life. Now, her magic is taking a break from her—books are fading, runes are crumbling, and her entire witchy collection may soon be lost.
Ordinarily, Jane would just buckle down and work a spell or two. But things are strained after an unexpectedly amorous encounter with her arcane protector, David Montrose. And her love life gets even more complicated when she meets a great guy—the type of man a smart woman marries. Moreover, she’s obligated to serve as maid of honor for her beloved grandmother, and her library career won’t take no for an answer. Desperate, Jane stakes everything on one last-ditch spell.
Will Jane get her magic back? Or will she be finished as a witch forever?
