    The Money Anxiety Cure - A Path...

    Uncertainty creates anxiety, and we are engaged in a modern collective anxiety known as "money anxiety disorder." Money anxiety disorder lies at the heart of so many of the disruptions that occur in our lives, our society, and our world. It can be triggered by events like fluctuations in the marketplace, job loss, employment instability, divorce, or even just struggling to stay on budget. 
    
    Like the economy itself, our anxiety about money fluctuates. But we don't have to be at the mercy of it. We can learn to cope with unpredictable financial times and silence our panic. There is a cure for money anxiety disorder.
    
    The first step to the cure is to get a handle on the practical ins and outs of your money management. Learning how to budget, set financial goals, create a system for paying bills, and plan wisely for retirement are crucial pragmatic tactics that we all must learn if we are to experience peace and security around money. 
    
    So many of us were raised to believe that financial success and material prosperity are the most important things we can achieve in our lives. But where does that leave us when things don't go well with our bank accounts, when we don't achieve what we think we should have achieved when we expected to achieve it, or worse, when we make a lot of money and experience professional success only to realize we are still not happy? And when the entire world seems to be in an economic downturn, does that mean that we too are doomed to misery? 
    
    This book will not offer you advice on accounting, budgeting, spreadsheets, or numbers. Instead, we'll focus on a deeper cure: how to create financial wellbeing by changing your attitude toward money and creating a realistic and balanced vision for your own personal prosperity. Using mindfulness, reflective journaling, and somatic tools, you'll learn to better manage your anxiety around money-and your life.

    The first in-depth look at the multibillion-dollar company Alibaba.com—known to many as "China's eBay"—and the inspirational story behind the man who created it. 
    A bestseller in China and now translated into English and updated with recent events, Alibaba by Liu Shiying and Martha Avery tells the remarkable story behind the Internet phenomenon Alibaba.com and its founder Jack Ma, a man Barron's named one of the World's Top 30 CEOs in 2008. Ma's rise to prominence presents a riveting story: Despite growing up in China during the Cultural Revolution—in a period of total state control of the economy—he developed the keen entrepreneurial instincts that propelled him to billionaire status and enabled him to build a company outside the usual government channels. These instincts and habits incorporated martial arts training and allowed him to recognize, early on, that the Internet could leverage his company to rapid growth and also transform the way business is done around the world.  
    Alibaba.com, where businesses can buy and sell everything from air beds to zippers, started with a modest initial investment of $60,000 and has grown exponentially since its founding in 1999 to become the world's biggest business-to-business Web site. In 2007 it became the second largest IPO in history (after Google), and Fast Company has named it one of the world's most innovative companies. As a result, smart investors and technology insiders will be keeping a close eye on Alibaba for years to come. Whether you're seeking to understand China's meteoric rise, or just searching for the next Google, Yahoo!, or Amazon, Alibaba is crucial reading.

    There is nobody in the world today using the Power of Suggestion through hypnotic selling quite the way Barker has mastered it. He’s been featured on NBC’s “Today Show,” CBS’s “The Late Late Show with James Corden” and countless other TV programs. 
    Every human action must have a thought attached to it first, everything starts with a thought. The thought then may or may not translate into an action; thought or feeling or even a physical chemical reaction.  
    What if I could change or reprogram that thought process which would in turn enable a different response or outcome? I believe we do not walk around in life seeing the world, we actually think it. We have millions of thoughts all day and through a hypnotic process I can make the outcome of the thought and even the thought itself change in a certain direction.  
    There is no such thing as random thoughts, everything is triggered from the subconscious mind- the part we use during hypnosis. 
    Richard Barker has written this fascinating book titled “Selling Hypnotically” Undoubtedly Barker’s book will give you a distinct advantage over your competitors, which makes it a must-have tool for your arsena
