Summary

When a crippling disease shattered his lifelong ambition, Dr. V (Venkataswamy) chose an impossible new dream: to cure the world of blindness. The tiny clinic he founded in India defied conventional business logic and is now the largest provider of eye care on the planet. 

At Aravind, patients choose whether to pay or not. Millions are treated for free, yet the organization remains stunningly self-reliant. Serving everyone from penniless farmers to the president, it delivers world-class outcomes at less than a hundredth of what similar services cost in advanced nations. Its model is emulated by organizations everywhere from Rwanda to San Francisco. 

Infinite Vision uncovers the radical principles behind Aravind’s baffling success. Charged with profound insights and stories, it draws readers to the heart of Dr. V’s selfless vision, proving how choices that seem quixotic can, when executed with compassion and integrity, yield incredible results—results that can light the eyes of millions.

    At least one out of four people prefers to avoid the limelight, tends to listen more than they speak, feels alone in large groups, and requires lots of private time to restore their energy. They're introverts, and here is the book to help them boost their confidence while learning strategies for successfully living in an extrovert world.After dispelling common myths about introverts-they're not necessarily shy, aloof, or antisocial--The Introvert Advantage explains the real issues. Introverts are hardwired from birth to focus inward, so outside stimulation-chitchat, phone calls, parties, office meetings-can easily become "too much."The Introvert Advantage dispels introverts' belief that something is wrong with them and instead helps them recognize their inner strengths-their analytical skills, ability to think outside the box, and strong powers of concentration. It helps readers understand introversion and shows them how to determine where they fall on the introvert/extrovert continuum. It provides tools to improve relationships with partners, kids, colleagues, and friends, offering dozens of tips, including 10 ways to talk less and communicate more, 8 ways to showcase your abilities at work, how to take a child's temperament temperature, and strategies for socializing. Finally, it shows how to not just survive, but thrive-how to take advantage of the introvert's special qualities to create a life that's just right for the introvert temperament, to discover new ways to expand their energy reserves, and even how, when necessary, to confidently become a temporary extrovert.

    If you're one of the many people who are struggling to find a nice paying office job or perhaps one of those individuals who prefer working in the comfort of their own homes, there are a lot of options that you could choose from. Working a home based job isn’t half bad. Although there are perks when it comes to working an actual job at an actual office, working from home comes with its own upsides as well. There are plenty of home based business opportunities for anyone. With the help of the internet, friends, and a lot of perseverance, you could turn a handful budget into a thriving business. When it comes to starting your own business at home, there are a lot of things that you need to consider. 
    First there’s the budget. Setting up a business always starts with the amount of money you have available. Well of course, you do need to have some sort of motivation or an idea of what your business is going to be. But then again, it all boils down to how much money you could shell out to start. Let’s say you’ve got limited resources and got little to spare. It’s really not a problem once you get your finances straight. After that, it’s all about getting there, having your business kick started and working hard. 
    Once you have established your finances, the next thing you need to do is take a look at your abilities and skills. What are you good at? Most of the time, you could make a business out of the things that you have expert skills in. Baking, for instance, is a good example of a skill that you could make a business of at home. Though it may seem like a cliché and like everybody has been there, done that, but there is still a good chance of making a large sum out of baking. It requires less money to start and you could easily back out if you don’t feel like it is going anywhere without spending too much. This is just one of the many examples of home businesses that you could make simply by utilizing your skills. 
    When putting up a business, you must always think of your target market. It is a very important aspect when running any type of business. Since you're going to be conducting business at home, you must thoroughly evaluate the bounds of your business. Think of the people who are going to be your customers and you can start from there. Once you acquire your target market, all that’s left for you to do is make sure that your business runs smoothly and that your products and services are of highest quality.
