Summary

Starting a business is brutal. 70% of businesses fail after five years and only 25% of businesses make it to 15 years or more. What if you had a crystal ball to guide you through your business cycle so you didn’t make the same mistakes as everyone else?Larry Gaynor is a serial beauty entrepreneur still running TNG Worldwide since 1985. He has dealt with the biggest companies including L’Oréal, Unilever, Amazon and Walmart. As a retailer, he had to take a chance and decide to shut down his $5 million store and become a wholesale distributor. As a distributor, he was cut off more than ten times and threatened to sell his company or else. As a manufacturer, he had to take a chance and risk everything during the pandemic.Take A Chance! Is Gaynor’s fascinating journey as an entrepreneur spanning more than 50 years. Key take-aways include Gallup-training that changed TNG’s culture; the pivot to manufacturing from being a lowly distributor; the importance of being an Amazon Top 200 Reseller; and the rise and fall of the pro beauty business. Along the way, Gaynor shares his top 101 entrepreneurial lessons for making it big.

    “Definitive...honest reflection…particularly relating to meaningful relationships…which lends it distinction.” – The BookLife Prize (Publisher’s Weekly) 
    College media instructor Karl W. Beckstrand (B.A., journalism; M.A. conflict resolution) has completed most of his bucket list; but his relationships were far from satisfying. Today, he enjoys profound lasting ties. 
    Are you or someone you love wrestling with faith and LGBTQIA questions? Regardless of marital status or sexual orientation, every person has God-given needs for love and union, including connection with those of one’s own sex. Yet, long-term relating bliss can be elusive for many. 
    Has anything taken God by Surprise? God not only accepts “queerness,” expressed attentively, it’s part of His plan for joy. God can help us fulfill needs while honoring His will; and loving, generous feelings can replace discouragement, isolation, even addiction. 
    Beckstrand’s 27th book shares scriptural keys for transforming relationships and creating deep, lasting same-sex bonds. “I hope all who feel attraction to their sex—or any potentially isolating distinction—can learn its positive purpose and expressions; that each person can feel self-love, God’s love, and profound love with others.” Chapters include:Is It All about Sex? What’s Good About Attraction to Your Own Sex? Are Competing Desires Healthful? Authentic Identity – The Key to HappinessHow to Not Miss OutClose Beyond Imagination 
    Get these concepts plus online bonuses: relating with a gay loved one, coming out (or not), and supporting anyone who questions God’s love. A secular version of this book is titled, Abundant Paths. 
    Beckstrand is the winner of a 2016 International Book Award. 55,000 words, Paths Press (worldwide rights © Sept. 2022), Soft cover ISBN: 978-1951599225

    Writer. Mother. Wife. New Yorker. Abigail Pogrebin is many things, but the one that has defined her most profoundly is "identical twin." Pogrebin's relationship with her sister-both as children, when they were inseparable, and today, when she longs for that uncomplicated intimacy-inspired her to examine the phenomenon of twinship, to learn how other identical pairs regard their doubleness and what experts are learning about how DNA impacts our sense of identity and shapes our lives.In One and the Same, Pogrebin presents a tapestry of twinship, weaving science reporting and personal memoir with the revelatory stories of other twins, such as two sisters who stopped speaking for three years; football stars Tiki and Ronde Barber, who admit their twinship comes before their marriages; a pair of bawdy, self-proclaimed "twin ambassadors" who have created a media empire around their twinness; and brothers whose shared genetic anomaly wrought unspeakable tragedy. In this stirring account, Pogrebin shows how living identical is both a celebration of sameness and a struggle for singularity that defines us all.
