The Universe Doesn't Give a Flying Fuck About You (Epic series Book 1)

If you walk around every day on eggshells, nervous about making a mistake or looking stupid, then you should read this.

If you have a "next big thing" in mind you want to do because you know it will be awesome (starting the business, making the big move, launching the nonprofit, writing the book) but are afraid of doing what it would take to make that thing happen, then you should read this.

The universe is very big. You are very small. In fact, you're so small and so insignificant in the big picture that you don't even register to the eye of the cosmos. The universe was here before you were born and will be here long after you're gone, and your life is but a blip on its vast, vast radar. If your life is to matter, it's not going to matter to the universe. It's up to you make your life matter in the only way you can: by doing things that make a difference to you, to those around you, and to those whose lives you touch. Time is short. You have exactly NOW to do whatever it is you're here to do, or to let the inexorable passage of hours and days and years kill your potential like fruit left to die on a vine.

The universe doesn't hate you, but it doesn't love you, either. You're just an atom in its infinite workings. The universe doesn't care if you live, die, suffer, or thrive. Whatever your life here will mean is up to you.

Stop worrying so much about what others think and start being who you're supposed to be. It's time to do some epic shit.

You are dying, and your world is a lie (Epic series Book 2)

What is pain? What is discomfort? Is it something terrible, something to be avoided... or is it the very thing that lets us know that we are alive?

The modern world has sold us on a lie. The lie says that to live is to be comfortable. To live is to be free of struggle. The lie says that the ultimate existence would be to never want for anything, to never be pushed so far that it hurts. So why do some of us seek out "edge" experiences? Why do we flirt with deprivation, with intentional chaos? Why do some of us push toward and through our own physical, emotional, and emotional limits, just to see how it feels?

Every day, safe in our modern cocoons, we can comfortably ignore the fact we are dying. But should we blind ourselves to the truth? Beyond self-help cliches lies a painful and sobering reality: YOUR TIME IN THIS LIFE IS LIMITED... AND IT IS RUNNING OUT.

This essay looks at what it is to strive, to seek out what hurts us so that we may find out what it is to truly be human.

Disobey (Epic series Book 3)

We've been handed a world that was created by others, shaped by their thoughts and actions, and told that this is the way things must be.

We've been given a set of rules that are at root only opinions of the majority, and have been told that these are objectively, morally correct, immutable truths.

We've been sat down to play a game that is rigged -- a game that, even if we win, gives us something other than what we believed we would receive in victory.

And if we don't begin to consciously question the rules of our world and to look closely at the game we're unwittingly playing, then we will never get what we want.

It's time to look. Assess. Investigate. Choose. And, where appropriate, to disobey.

This essay follows the author's path from a life of "good kid" conformity in youth to his present-day decisions to start his own business, "unschool" his children, and to give up on what is not working. It's his manifesto of freedom and of conscious choice, and it can be yours, too.

If life is not what you wanted or expected it to be, this essay will help you to become more. To question norms. To disobey.

How to Live Forever (Epic series Book 4)

We all want to live forever, but we shouldn't. We're not supposed to. Ironically, if we could literally live every single day that time and space have left, our lives would be almost meaningless. It's the end of lives that cause them to matter.

But your life, short as it is -- and perhaps because it's short -- can have more meaning and more effect on other people than you can possibly imagine... if you chose to let it.

The end of your life is not the end. Not unless you let it be, through your actions and inactions during the time you're alive.

The end of your life -- thanks to the turbulence you leave behind you in the stream of time -- is the beginning.

Always Know What To Say - Easy Ways To Approach And Talk To Anyone

Who is this book for?

"Always Know What To Say" is for anyone who wants a straight to the point explanation of conversation skills fundamentals. I point out key distinctions you can apply right away to go from being tongue tied and unsure of what to say to having fun meeting people and getting to know them better. If you read AND apply what I cover in the book you`ll make steady progress and become much more at ease talking to people.

This book is not for you if you already have very good conversation skills and are comfortable meeting new people and letting your personality shine. You need to go elsewhere if you are looking for "secrets" and advanced strategies to achieve conversation skills mastery. You`ll regard this book as common sense.

And finally, this book is not for you if you read self help books and disregard the training because you`ve read something similar before and never apply what you learn. You`ll tell yourself you knew it all already.

You`ll gain a lot from "Always Know What To Say" if you treat it as a set of principles and strategies you get to play with in the real world. This is not light entertainment, its practical training that`s designed for you to use in your day to day life. If you do you`ll enjoy the happiness and warmth that comes from connecting with the important people in your life whether that be in your family and community or at work.

Here`s what people are saying about this book at Amazon.com

"If you are a shy person who finds it difficult to communicate with new people then this book will be helpful. Peter Murphy presents conversation starters, explains body language and teaches you what to ask people when you first meet. This book contains simple strategies for entertaining conversations. With this book anyone should be able to survive a party or talk to strangers on a plane. I personally find that listening to people talk about their life is a good way to make people like you. Being a shy person by nature I found some of this book to be very useful."

Rebecca Johnson

"I found a lot of great ideas in this book. I will have to refer back to it frequently to remember some of the ideas. Its a short book but not only is it packed with great ideas but the author has a great free website packed with ideas and there is a free audio on his website. I think it would be worth writing down some of the ideas and reviewing them before a social situation."

Cynthia from Florida

"As a manager of a retail store that pushes strong customer service, I have a large young staff. I've shared excerpts from this book with them and it blows their mind. As a young person they are having a hard time talking to people about something that they are worried doesn't interest the customer so they are all worried about failure and rejection. This book, I believe, has helped save my store. It is very basic, but almost like, why didn't I think to tell my staff that!"

J.Conley

How to Work for Yourself: 100 Ways to Make the Time, Energy and Priorities to Start a Business, Book or Blog

One of the fastest paths to success is starting a new project like a business, blog, book or some other creative endeavor. Side projects can result in extra income, greater fulfillment and even a more enjoyable career. If you aren't creating something in your spare time, you aren't reaching your full potential.

Author Bryan Cohen is no stranger to creative productivity. He's earned more than $35,000 in the past few years from his side business, Build Creative Writing Ideas. His 30 books, all of which were written in the past few years, have sold more than 20,000 copies. He achieved this success through the life-enriching tips he learned by reading dozens of books, attending multiple conferences and through his own trial and error.

He's put in hundreds of hours of refining his creativity techniques so that you don't have to. By using Cohen's tips and tricks, you'll start planning your business, book, blog or course in the next few days with optimized time, renewed energy and an improved balance in your life.

Quit Your Job in 6 Months: Why You Should Quit Your Job and How You Can: Volume 1

Ordinary Job, Ordinary Life "Quit your job? But I thought having a job was a good thing!" Jobs feel safe. We show up, do what we're supposed to do, and a check for the same amount comes in every couple of weeks. We can feel safe, secure, and comfortable with that. We can budget for housing, transportation, and food. We might even get a few weeks of vacation each year and have enough left over to go somewhere nice. So what's the problem? Average Isn't Satisfying, and Repetition is Drudgery The problem is that average just isn't satisfying. We can be thankful that we're not homeless or completely impoverished all we want, but that still doesn't scratch the itch we all have to live an extraordinary life-to spend more time doing what we love, less time doing what we don't love, and have more financial wealth to support our adventures. On top of that, most jobs involve doing the same things over and over again. You don't learn. One day blends into the next. You don't grow. Your life lacks richness, diversity, and excitement. All put together this doesn't make for a very inspiring way to live the one life you get. Quit, and Do Your Own Shit In "Quit Your Job in 6 Months: Why You Should Quit Your Job and How You Can," author and internet entrepreneur Buck Flogging reveals all of his internet business secrets to help you build a business from zero to $100 per day or more in 6 months or less-all in your spare time using time-efficient tactics that work, with minimal startup costs. If you want a shot at achieving real wealth and living the dream life of freedom to work anywhere in the world with an internet connection, the four book "Quit Your Job in 6 Months" series will teach you everything you need to know.

New Frontiers in Social Innovation Research

This book is open access under a CC BY license. Interest in social innovation continues to rise, from governments setting up social innovation 'labs' to large corporations developing social innovation strategies. Yet theory lags behind practice, and this hampers our ability to understand social innovation and make the most of its potential. This collection brings together work by leading social innovation researchers globally, exploring the practice and process of researching social innovation, its nature and effects. Combining theoretical chapters and empirical studies, it shows how social innovation is blurring traditional boundaries between the market, the state and civil society, thereby developing new forms of services, relationships and collaborations. It takes a critical perspective, analyzing potential downsides of social innovation that often remain unexplored or are glossed over, yet concludes with a powerful vision of the potential for social innovation to transform society. It aims to be a valuable resource for students and researchers, as well as policymakers and others supporting and leading social innovation.

Mass Influence: The habits of the highly influential

The rule book has changed. You attend a business networking event and meet Jack. You offer to buy him lunch to foster a relationship. Point scored. You meet for coffee. Jack has potential to be your new customer and might even lead you to new business. Feeling pretty good, you go to another function. You're impressed with the influential speaker who has a lineup of people who want to meet her. You figure, what the heck? I'll ask her for a coffee, too. Wrong move. You could actually be pushing away influential connections without knowing it. Growing your business while creating influential connections, is a skill. It is a game, with a set of rules, habits and etiquette that when followed, could change the landscape of how you do business, deeply improving your bottom-line. The challenge is most of us in business are unfamiliar with the game of growing influence. Influence expert Teresa de Grosbois takes you on a journey that unveils the key habits for success that are encompassed by the most influential people across the globe. She shows you the top mistakes to avoid when connecting with the influential and how to ultimately join their ranks so you too, can become a key player in your field, your company, your industry or community.

Fulfilling the Promise of Technology Transfer: Fostering Innovation for the Benefit of Society

Universities and research institutes are increasingly expected to contribute to society by creating innovation from the returns of their research results and the establishment of new technologies. Toward that goal, Keio University in Japan held an international symposium titled "Fulfilling the Promise of Technology Transfer: Fostering Innovation for the Benefit of Society." From that symposium the following contents are included in the present volume: a showcase of ideas and case studies to promote future creation of innovation by universities and research institutes worldwide, including information on the R&D value chain, licensing, income generation, start-ups and mechanisms to encourage entrepreneurship, and the changing role of universities in fostering innovation.

This book is not about the latest and greatest tips and tricks for using Google AdWords... I do offer extensive AdWords PPC training through my web site: http://ppcequation.com - Both free and paid training can be found there. I just want to be 100% transparent with you and let you know that this book is not going to make you a PPC expert in one read. It's simply an introduction to the industry, either for the business owner / entrepreneur wanting to drive more traffic to his offerings or for someone thinking about becoming a Pay Per Click Professional as a career.

I guarantee you will find some great takeaways... gold nuggets and bonuses within.
