Summary

Navigating the Challenges of the Social Service SectorThe guidance you need to find fulfillment and success in a unique workplaceMany people are drawn to working in the social services sector because it offers a kind of fulfillment usually not available in the for-profit sector. But it also provides a unique set of challenges — often very different from those encountered in for-profit organizations — that can stand in the way of success. Dr. Bruton applies her knowledge about, and experience in, the social services sector to act as your mentor, helping you avoid the pitfalls and take advantage of the opportunities endemic to this unique work environment. Dr. Bruton divides the pitfalls and opportunities into five categories, which she calls the 5 C’s, and leads you through each of them:Care – Taking care of yourself, your clients, and your organizationCommunity – Fitting in and getting the support you needCollaboration – Working well with others and keeping the big picture in mindCan Do – Putting in the kind of effort that will make your work stand outChange – Being prepared for change and taking advantage of itDr. Bruton lays out both how you can avoid wrong moves in these areas and how to do the right things. As a psychologically sophisticated guide to working in the social services sector, she provides you with the tools you need to succeed and be fulfilled.

    A paradigm-shifting study of neurodivergent women—those with ADHD, autism, synesthesia, high sensitivity, and sensory processing disorder—exploring why these traits are overlooked in women and how society benefits from allowing their unique strengths to flourish. 
     
    As a successful Harvard and Berkeley-educated writer, entrepreneur, and devoted mother, Jenara Nerenberg was shocked to discover that her "symptoms"—only ever labeled as anxiety—were considered autistic and ADHD. Being a journalist, she dove into the research and uncovered neurodiversity—a framework that moves away from pathologizing "abnormal" versus "normal" brains and instead recognizes the vast diversity of our mental makeups. 
    When it comes to women, sensory processing differences are often overlooked, masked, or mistaken for something else entirely. Between a flawed system that focuses on diagnosing younger, male populations, and the fact that girls are conditioned from a young age to blend in and conform to gender expectations, women often don't learn about their neurological differences until they are adults, if at all. As a result, potentially millions live with undiagnosed or misdiagnosed neurodivergences, and the misidentification leads to depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and shame. Meanwhile, we all miss out on the gifts their neurodivergent minds have to offer. 
    Divergent Mind is a long-overdue, much-needed answer for women who have a deep sense that they are "different". Sharing real stories from women with high sensitivity, ADHD, autism, misophonia, dyslexia, SPD, and more, Nerenberg explores how these brain variances present differently in women and dispels widely-held misconceptions (for example, it's not that autistic people lack sensitivity and empathy, they have an overwhelming excess of it). 
    Nerenberg also offers us a path forward, describing practical changes in how we communicate, how we design our surroundings, and how we can better support divergent minds. When we allow our wide variety of brain makeups to flourish, we create a better tomorrow for us all.

    To succeed in business and personal development requires personal effort and desire to change your status quo. Success depends on a number of critical factors in life, relating them from the perspective of a professional accountant who is dedicated to growing start-ups, counselling, coaching, teaching, and guiding young and up-coming business executives.The book touches on finance, marketing, accounting, psychology, economics, and spiritual experiences to address thorny issues that are taken for granted in planning, execution, and development on oneself. 
     
    Divided into three parts: Part I teaches on planning and getting yourself organized for that business. It answers: How do you get that business running; how do you plan for the year in terms of resolutions; and how to get your annual resolutions working; how to position yourself in your chosen niche; and how to get that vision realized through active participation.
     
    Part II expands on personal development topics with finance, accounting, psychology, marketing, and economics topics that are studied in schools but are least applied in personal life. You will be guided on how life possibilities are open before your eyes in a practical way after going through all the steps.
     
    Part III talks about how to have a financial fasting, the spiritual origin of man, how and why you have been born into that house, and the reason why your father is not the likes of Bill Gates and Warren Buffet. You will learn how to adjust yourself in order to come out from your present situations if only you lifted up your spirit! You will also learn about the spiritual activities of your brain and how you can exploit it for the benefit of your own self. Know the difference between intelligence, knowledge, and wisdom and the reason why your cerebellum plays significant role in your spiritual development than ever.
     
    You will never be the same!
