Have you ever thought that you work in an insane asylum? I know that sometimes it can seem this way.
Albert Bernstein is the author of the new book entitled, ” Am I The Only Sane One Working Here?”
His book has great advice for surviving the crazy work-a-day world. His new book is one of the most comprehensive guides for solving all of the problems that you may encounter at work.
“Am I The Only Sane One Working Here?” provides you with 101 solutions for surviving office insanity. Albert points out that people who say what they mean and mean what they say are almost as rare as a spotted owl. Business is supposed to be rational and professional. The unfortunate truth is, most companies are totally dysfunctional. On top of that, crazy people are getting in the way –in your way, in their way, in the way of getting the job done. You’ll be able to cut through the craziness, protect yourself, develop secret techniques, and maybe get yourself promoted in the process.
If you feel that you are swimming against a strong current of crazy co-workers, you can still manage it by changing your reactions, not their actions.
Albert Bernstein’s guidance will help you go from puzzled to powerful just by changing your attitude and your understanding of office madness. You will learn:
- Why doing a good job and succeeding are not necessarily the same thing
- How to figure out the critical unwritten rules that no one will ever tell you
- How to get people who never listen to listen to you
- How to protect yourself from the lies by learning how to think like a liar
- How to get immature and recalcitrant coworkers off their lazy butts
You will learn this and so much more in my interview with Albert Bernstein Ph.D, an expert in conflict resolution.
I encourage you to listen to my interview and visit Albert Bernstein’s website by clicking here for more information about his book. Enjoy this great interview with a very knowledgeable professional.
I thoroughly enjoyed my interview with Maribeth Kuzmeski. She is one of the most knowledgeable authors that I know working with business marketing professionals to sharpen their connection skills.
You might be asking just what are connector skills, well it is that wisdom that you posses within to reach out at the right time and speak with someone who you think just might be able to help you jump start a project or a business idea. Maribeth says to forget marketing tactics or business school best practices. Those are handy, but its’ really people–and the relationships you build with them–that form the cornerstone of long-term success, sales growth and excellence. Whether you’re a salesperson, an entrepreneur, or an executive, your ultimate job is to bring in clients and keep them.
Maribeth’s new book, “The Connectors“, presents a five-step methodology that helps you to build the kind of high-quality relationships that lead to lifelong clients, repeat customers and endless referrals.
Inside her book you’ll learn how to:
- Stop networking and start truly connecting
- Create an avalanche of referrals and an army of happy customers
- Become a “connector”, even if you’ve never been a “people person”
- Find your social IQ–and improve it
- Put relationship-building principles to work daily
- Focus on others and reap the rewards yourself
- Ask the right questions–and sell without selling
- Differentiate yourself through the impact you have on others
These skills and more are revealed in “The Connectors“. My interview with Maribeth also reveals many of the benefits of learning how to become a better connector. I recommend that you listen, and learn from this master in her field.
If you are looking to build relationships, and make more meaningful connections then this is a must read book. If you would like more information about Maribeth and her services I recommend that you visit her website by clicking here to learn more. Enjoy this wonderful interview.
This was a wonderful interview with Harvey McKinnon the author of the new book entitled, “The Power of Giving“.
Harvey has a big heart, and loads of passion behind his charitable work. He and the co-author of this book, Azim Jamal, point out that giving does more than just improve the lives of others; it affects your own life profoundly. With benefits ranging from the practical–improved health and professional connection–to the intangible–creating feelings of hope and a sense of connection with others–giving is an essential but often overlooked human need.
One of the studies revealed that people who exhibit higher levels of altruism get a “helpers high”, a release of endorphins. This high can give the immune system a boost, speed recovery from surgery and cut down on those restless nights. Also thanks to new brain-scan technology, scientists have also discovered evidence that humans are “hard wired” to take care of and help each other. A British poll of volunteers found that half of those surveyed claimed that their health had improved while they were volunteering. Twenty percent of them claimed they lost weight, too which is a higher success rate than any diet we know.
If you would like to know more about what you can do to personally to become a giver, then I highly recommend reading “The Power of Giving“. This book could certainly be transformational in your life if you implement some of the practices that Harvey and Azim outline in their book.
These are simple practices that are proven to awaken you, transform and improve your life in almost every possible way imaginable. It is not hard to give, and it does not have to be just money. Your gifts can be of time and your talent, for those are needed just as much as your money.
So relax, and enjoy this wonderful interview. You can learn more about Harvey and Azim by visiting their website by clicking here.

Rick Hanson’s new book entitled, “Buddha’s Brain-The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love and Wisdom“, is a fascinating in-depth look at how science is now revealing how the flow of thoughts actually sculpts the brain. By combining breakthroughs in neuroscience with insights from thousands of years of contemplative practice, you too, can use your mind to shape your brain for greater happiness, love and wisdom.

As quoted by psychologist Donald Hebb–“when neurons fire together, they wire together”. Rick argues that the brain’s functioning can be affected by simple practices and meditations to foster well-being. Rick states that classic Buddhist concepts such as the “three trainings” of mindfulness, virtuous action and wisdom can help one in attaining greater levels of happiness.
“Buddha’s Brain-The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love and Wisdom” shows you how to:
- Stress Proof your brain.
- Practical and proven methods for feeling less irritable, sad and defensive.
- Simple daily exercises to reprogram the brain to handle stress better.

How many of you are aware of the Enneagram? I had been exposed to the concept some time ago, but never really understood the aspects of the Enneagram until my interview with Dr. David Daniels. He is the expert on the Enneagram and how to utilize it as a tool both personally and professionally.
So just what is it, and how can you use it? Dr. David Daniels new book entitled, “The Essential Enneagram“, is a wonderful tool that assists the reader in understanding the various personality types that make up the Enneagram. Dr. Daniels takes the reader through a simple process of identifying your type and the characteristics associated with your personality type.
The Enneagram is a powerful and dynamic personality system that describes nine distinct and fundamentally different patterns of thinking, feeling and acting. “Ennea” is Greek for nine and “gram” means a figure or something written. Each of the nine patterns is based on an explicit perceptual filter and associated driving emotional energy. These patterns determine what individuals of each personality type pay attention to and how they direct their energy and behavior.
Discovering your Ennegram personal type can help you learn how to bring positive change into your life. It can help change the way you relate to yourself and others as well as give you a greater understanding of the circumstances and issues facing you. Moreover, it can give you powerful assistance in integrating the personal and spiritual aspects of your life.
If you would like to learn more about your personality and identifng aspects of your personality that are serving you and others that have the option of changing for the better, then I highly recommending reading Dr. David Daniels new book “The Essential Enneagram”.

“Love Yourself and Let the Other Person Have it Your Way” by Larry Crane is based on the teachings of Lester Levenson and the technique he developed called the “Release Technique”. Levenson was a very intelligent man, as a matter of fact he was a physicist and engineer. Intellectually he was brilliant but emotionally he longed for happiness and love. Levenson came to the end of his rope, when his health started to fail him and he knew he needed to do something. He realized that to increase love in his life he needed to let go of the non-loving feelings. Sounds simple enough doesn’t it?
The Release Technique that I dialogue with Larry Crane about will assist you in letting go of the non-loving feelings. Larry discovered Lester’s teachings as a result of almost committing suicide. He was unhappy yet he had all of the material possessions that anyone could want. Larry says that the day he met Lester was the single greatest day of his life.
For Larry, it’s all about results. “It’s not what you say, it’s what you do,” are words Larry often repeats. “Talking about love, talking about what love is, talking about how to be loving is not the answer,” says Larry. “Actually doing it is the answer. Doing it, not talking about it.”
Don’t resist loving yourself. Blocking those feelings prevents you from moving forward both emotionally and spiritually. If you want real happiness and joy in your life, it is all about loving yourself and those around you. Letting go is the answer to having loving relationships in your life. The release technique is the secret to letting go and finding love and happiness in your life.
According to Larry human love is selfish. Divine love is completely selfless. Real love is winning the universe, not just one person but every person, every being. Real love, divine love is constant, persistent acceptance of all the beings in the universe.

Sarah Maria is beautiful and she used to suffer from negative body obsession. It is difficult to believe that this outgoing, gregarious woman thought that she was too fat.
Her new book entitled, “Love Your Body, Love Your Life“, is as much about her personal journey as it is about providing both men and women with the tools to help end this obsession.
In our interview together we discuss the five steps to end negative body obsession and start living happily and confidently. Sarah says if you are struggling, you are not alone. 80-90 percent of women and a growing number of men dislike their physical appearance. Body hatred has become an epidemic of unfathomable proportion in this culture. It is no wonder considering how our media emphasizes beauty, youth and remaining forever young.
Sarah says beyond the physical and emotional costs of negative body obsession lies the damage done on the spiritual front. She states that tremendous suffering occurs when you are unaware of your spiritual truth. Living with negative body obsession prevents you from experiencing who you really are. It deprives you of your fundamental experience of living your life fully and with limitless potential.
Purpose can literally help people stay alive. Sarah says to discover who you really are and to discover your purpose and to live it. Those of you suffering from eating disorders or intense emotional struggles probably know, continued abuse of your body and mind can lead to precarious life-and-death situations. Finding a sense of purpose, however helps those stuck in these very dark horrific places.
I encourage you to listen to this interview and to visit Sarah’s website by clicking here. Her new book has great advice, and her workshops and information about her personal body consulting can be accessed at the website as well. Enjoy our interview together.
