    IF YOU KNEW WHAT I KNOW... Would you buy a municipal bond for the subways in New York City that’s rated AA-, or only A? Would you care what a bond is for as long, as it’s a general obligation backed by the issuer’s full faith, credit, and taxing power? Would you pay 109 for a bond, a premium of $90 for every $1,000 face value, knowing you’re going to get back only $1,000 at the end??Would it be crazy to buy a 30-year bond at age 80? Would you read “these bonds are not a debt of the state” as a fair warning, Buyer Beware??Tax free municipal bonds. Would you buy them at all? STRAIGHT TALK FROM THE MAN WHO PUT MUNIS ON THE MAP FOR THE INDIVIDUAL INVESTOR. Would telling you the whole story about investing in municipal bonds, and making sure you know the risks involved, kill the sale? “I’ll take my chances,” says Jim (Municipal Bonds Are My Babies) Lebenthal. For 45 years, Jim Lebenthal wrote and starred in the Lebenthal family’s municipal bond business commercials - information nuggets that educated the public and turned munis into a household word, wherever his face and voice were seen and heard. Outraged by what Wall Street had done to the financial markets with reckless abandon, and Bernie Madoff with malice aforethought, Jim gives equal time in Lebenthal On Munis…Deciding, "Yes…" or "No!" to the Whys and Why Nots for investing in his "babies." "Balancing the heady appeal of tax exemption with the payment record of municipal bonds in the Depression and the volatility of resale prices during the inflation tortured '70s and '80s, isn’t optional for a broker," says Lebenthal. "Full Disclosure is the law." In Lebenthal on Munis, Jim carries out that law, even if Full Disclosure means turning Jim and his babies, thumbs down. DECIDING, "YES…" OR "NO!"

    Many books have been written on the sayings and actions of the Prophet. Called hadith, past scholars have often compiled these in collections of 40 for its blessings, easy remembrance and application.Inspired by their great works and the athar or narration of ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab which stresses the need for the businessman to know his religion and religious rulings concerning commerce before engaging in business, this book is a collection of 40 hadith with reflections from a marketing and business perspective.It attempts to uncover the many hidden gems of good business practices found in the hadith for the marketer and business owner to be guided from in order to succeed in this world and the hereafter. While magnum opuses such as Sahih Al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim already contain chapters on business transactions, this book also includes other aspects of marketing such as strategy, product creation, distribution, human communications, measurement and management.The reader will be amazed to find the prophet advising us on seemingly modern marketing concepts and techniques some 14 centuries ago.Hence, this book was written for the marketer who wants to know how to do his marketing and run his business well, and who is also interested to discover some of the hidden gems of marketing in Islam.

    Retirement isn’t what it used to be. This practical guide shows you how to avoid outliving your money—or your meaning. Longer life expectancy and increasing intellectual capital have transformed our notion of “the golden years.” Often we’re just not ready for a life without work. We want to stay productive (whatever that means to us) well into the future—and for baby boomers and the following generations, that future is closer than we think.  The Encore Curve examines two crucial questions—“Now what am I going to do?” and “Will I have enough money?”—and guides you toward the answers, with smart tools and unique coaching methods to help you find and fund your retirement goals, and create your memorable “encore.” It helps equip you, both emotionally and economically, to define the next phase of your life. With the Peace of Mind Investor Process from Andy Raub—a financial advisor and investment manager with thirty years’ experience—and simple, insightful exercises, you can determine your priorities and design your own fulfilling, worry-free retirement. Learn how to: - Refocus your life and put first things first- Organize your finances and build a spending plan- Assess your risk and recovery options- Avoid mistakes as you adjust to the new rules of the game- Manage finite funds in the face of increasing costs- Devise a contingency plan for sudden life changes- Match your money to your dreams- Make your future bigger than your pastRetirement isn’t just a finish line—it can be a starting point. When you ask yourself the right questions, face the tough choices, and put the pieces together, you’ll be ready for your encore. "I am glad that there are people like Andy in the world who are bringing peace, abundance, and meaning into our lives."—Jack Canfield, cocreator of Chicken Soup for the Soul
