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.

    The shocking truth about where the markets are headed and why owning physical gold—not paper assets—is a far better strategy to building real wealth.   An indispensable resource for the everyday investor, Gold Is A Better Way turns the strategies recommended by Wall Street on their head and makes the case for a return to sound investing.   Adam Baratta strips away all the confusion and complexities surrounding investing and breaks down investment concepts and the simple fundamentals driving markets. He provides a roadmap for how to win at the game of investing and, more importantly, explains the “why” so readers can continue to win. Everyday investors gain tools that allow them to know with certainty they are making sound investment decisions, as well as an understanding of where to diversify investments that have historically performed well.   There is a massive environmental shift happening in financial markets. Interest rates are rising and what has been very easy for investors in the past is about to become very hard. Everything people think they know about investing is being turned on its head. It's time to change investing behavior.   “A fresh new voice in the world of gold . . . Baratta’s book and cutting edge platform make the undeniable case why gold demands consideration in every portfolio.” —ZeroHedge

    The Taxable Investor's Manifesto: Wealth Management Strategies to Last a Lifetime is written for every investor with taxable wealth and every advisor who serves them. The Taxable Investor's Manifesto guides listeners through a series of related topics, bringing clarity to complexity with an economy of words, while providing valuable and actionable advice at every turn.This remarkable book combines the deep industry knowledge of a seasoned practitioner with the communication skills of a leading educator. Author Stuart E. Lucas is the founder and chief investment officer of Wealth Strategist Partners, a firm that advises complex family enterprises, including his own.Most investment books only address pre-tax headline returns, but individuals pay taxes. The incentives and disincentives of our tax system can have a dramatic impact on actual investment time horizons and returns. The Manifesto sensibly folds tax incentives into investment strategy in ways that can add profound value over a lifetime to actual results. It includes guidance on: how to keep a greater percentage of your profits with a higher probability of success and less effort; why it's important to manage the intersection of investment, tax, and estate planning; and how to compete for better long-term investment returns against tax-exempt investors.
