    Do you truly dare to believe? 
    How many times did you feel you were cheated out of success? 
    How many times have you doubted your destiny? 
    How often has success just become a meaningless buzzword? 
    We've all been there. And the reason we have is that we have no fundamental appreciation of the ability to believe.  
     
     
    The ability to believe is something that requires practice and understanding. No one is asking you blindly trust something or someone. 
    Believing is not about trusting someone or trusting something, believing is about knowing your place in the universe and that the universe is right behind you in all that you do, and all that you need. You have to learn to believe in the reason you are here and the reason you are designed and destined for greatness.  
     
    The core of your success and the ability to look past all the distractions is to be able to believe in the larger picture, not the one that you are staring at, point-blank, at the moment. 
    Belief will get you through every single stage of your life. It will let you jump from one success to the next and it will turn your life around on the condition that you know how to do it.  
     
    This book lays out the different ways most of you can get to observe that areas that can inspire belief and the areas that you will be able to harvest the ability to believe and go on to make yourself a success.  
      
     
    Is This Book For You? 
     
    This book is dedicated to those of you who truly believe you were meant to be successful. You need to believe that anything and everything your mind can conjure up is possible, because it is.

    He wants to do something new, maybe a little bit righteous. She sees herself leading a nonprofit or creating a medical device that saves lives in the remotest parts of the world. However, the search process has changed radically from the last time they looked for a job. 
    
    Like many job seekers, they’ve done a lot and can do a lot. But, recruiters can’t see past old job titles to recognize how a candidate can contribute to the work force in new ways. And worse, the candidate feels tongue-tied for the first time in their career. In The Art of Finding the Job You Love, Cara Heilmann, CEO of Ready Reset Go®, offers a fresh, safe, and unconventional way to help job seekers speak their talents and passion to make a difference through their work. She connects the worlds of comedy and recruiting with a look behind the curtain to share what hiring managers are really looking for and reveals why the more successful people are, the more they wing interview prep—and how that can work against them. Readers learn how to:
    Get clear on the targeted job to make everything easier
    Create (at least) five riveting career stories that must be in every job seeker’s toolbox
    Understand how to connect with chemistry during the interview process—even for the most introverted introvert
    Make a lasting positive impression that sticks well after the interview 
    
    The Art of Finding the Job You Love helps job seekers craft compelling career stories and communicate them in a way that leaves hiring managers wanting more and job seekers with the opportunity to make a difference in the world through a career they love!

    The Essential Guide to Saving Money and Living the Frugal Life! 
     
     
     
    Some of the most frequently asked personal finance questions during this difficult economy revolve around "how to budget", "how to make a budget" and "how to live on a tight budget". Budgeting your money successfully is crucial to flourishing in any type of economy, much less a tough one. There is a common misconception that good budgeting depends upon fancy forms, financial expertise, software programs and solely on one's income. All of these false notions completely circumvent the only true goal of any personal budget: Getting the most value for each of your hard-earned dollars.  
     
    Those misguided beliefs above are the key reasons why many people are much worse off than they should be, regardless of income levels or familiarity with financial software. There are many people who are much "better off" with a lower income and a simple budget form than those with great salaries and top-notch computer programs. These successful folks are the ones who have learned the secret

    When three Boston securities executives pooled their money together in 1924 to create the first mutual fund, they had no idea how popular mutual funds would become. The idea of pooling money together for investing purposes started in Europe in the mid-1800s. The first pooled fund in the U.S. was created in 1893 for the faculty and staff of Harvard University. On March 21st, 1924 the first official mutual fund was born. It was called the Massachusetts Investors Trust. 
    After one year, the Massachusetts Investors Trust grew from $50,000 in assets in 1924 to $392,000 in assets (with around 200 shareholders). In contrast, there are over 10,000  mutual funds in the U.S. today totaling around $7 trillion (with approximately 83 million individual investors) according to the Investment Company Institute.
