Redefining Success for Female Entrepreneurs: Real Women, Real Stories, Real Inspiration (Inspiring Stories About Personal Success, Happiness, Motivation, Spirituality and Faith Book 1)

by Ally Nathaniel

Are you tired of all the “get rich quick” and “having it all” books out there? Do you feel that today’s business books lack honesty and therefore inspiration?

In a world full of Kardashians and fake reality shows this new book is a breath of fresh air.

Who really defines success? How do we define it for ourselves? Chances are, it’s not what you’ve been taught.

While making money is a key goal for most, many women have come to realize that health, happiness, growth, and mentoring others are equally important in the overall equation of success; and that success rarely means the same thing for women as it does for men.

With that in mind, 14 female entrepreneurs have come together to share their intimate success stories to inspire more women to take the steps toward financial independence and personal success. This book offers a unique point of view through the adventures, struggles, and joy these women experienced on their roads to success.

Learn the truth about managing your own happiness

  • learning from mentors
  • Shedding the myths of outward success
  • Caring for your business, your partners, and employees
  • Learn from real women who’ve been in the trenches.

Ë?Ë?Ë? The passion behind the stories

These authors are passionate about supporting other women in business and in life. In this book they share that passion with you. Get inspired to redefine success for yourself, as these women share vulnerability, fears, mistakes, growth, and ultimately, success.

Ë?Ë?Ë? What you will find in this book

14 women came together to share their journey to success in a very direct and honest way, in order to support other women and help them reach their full potential.

The women in this book are talking about rising above sexual abuse, war, adoption, immigration hardships, depression and even leaving their family behind in order to stay true to themselves.

It doesn’t happen every day that women support each other by opening up publicly and share their less bright side of life and business in order to redefine success. This book is the perfect gift to any woman you know and care about.

Ë?Ë?Ë? How the Book Came to Be

Ayelet (Ally) Nathaniel, owner of Ally Nathaniel eBook Publishing Services, has been helping people get their dream book into print for years. Earlier this year, she approached Sarah Walton, owner of Love by Sarah Walton and Better Way to Start the Day, about combining the stories of several women to deliver a completely new kind of book: shared stories of real success by women who’ve been in the trenches.

Tired of the many “get rich quick” schemes and thinly veiled direct marketing claims of “having it all,” Ally and Sarah wanted to offer real stories of success and the truth about what success means to each woman individually.

Together, they reached out to several women in their networks, and the final 13 came together. Each woman has written a chapter that tells her individual story of personal triumph, moments of grief, support, growth, and ultimately, success. This book aims to offer real-world examples of success, debunking the myth that success is only measurable by external markers. For each woman, success is defined differently, and usually through trial and error.

In today’s hectic world, filled with a false sense of urgency, panic, and the need to appear perfect, Redefining Success is a welcome breath of fresh air, filled with truth, heart, and inspiration.

The book was edited by Sarah Walton and Ayelet Nathaniel.

The Blonde Beast of Birkenau and Belsen:The Life and Crimes of Irma Grese

by Cynthia Southern

This biography is about Irma Grese, the infamous female camp guard, who committed heinous war crimes in Auschwitz-Birkenau and Bergen-Belsen during the Holocaust. She is also the youngest woman executed by the British during the twentieth century.

I have consulted every book and source of information about Irma Grese and wish to tell her biography in its entirety. Nothing is left out of Grese’s biography, including the sadistic and depraved acts she committed. She is known for these crimes and it doesn’t do History justice by leaving them out or lessening their devastating impact in print. We must know what war crimes she committed so we may always be vigilant that they never happen again. These are war crimes. All the sordid details about her crimes come from survivors who witnessed or experienced them. Their accounts are vitally important to understand Irma Grese.

In our humble opinion(s) nothing comes close.

Walking Distance: Pilgrimage, Parenthood, Grief, and Home Repairs

by David Hlavsa

In the summer of 2000, David Hlavsa and his wife Lisa Holtby embarked on a pilgrimage. After trying for three years to conceive a child and suffering through the monthly cycle of hope and disappointment, they decided to walk the Camino de Santiago, a joint enterpriseâ??and an act of faithâ??they hoped would strengthen their marriage and prepare them for parenthood.

Though walking more than 400 miles across the north of Spain turned out to be more difficult than they had anticipated, after a series of misadventures, including a brief stay in a Spanish hospital, they arrived in Santiago. Shortly after their return to Seattle, Lisa became pregnant, and the hardships of the Camino were no comparison to what followed: the stillbirth of their first son and Lisa’s harrowing second pregnancy.

Walking Distance is a moving and disarmingly funny book, a good story with a happy endingâ??the safe arrival of David and Lisa’s second son, Benjamin. David and Lisa get more than they bargained for, but they also get exactly what they wanted: a child, a solid marriage, and a richer life.

An Autobiography: The Story of My Life and Work

by Booker T. Washington

From 1890-1915, the most influential black man in America was Booker T. Washington, who less than 35 years earlier had been born into slavery. The young boy worked laboriously until emancipation before going on to seek an education. By the time he was 40, he was consolidating a network of supporters that came to be known as the “Tuskegee Machine,” helping coordinate action with the support of black businesses, religious communities, and others. With his position of power, Washington spoke out against Jim Crow laws and Southern disfranchisement of blacks.

By the early 20th century, Washington’s tactics were questioned by other black leaders, notably W. E. B. Du Bois, who wanted to protest more vehemently in an effort to secure civil rights. Washington believed confrontation would only hurt the cause, and that cooperation and softer tones would wear down racism over time. To that end, both men wrote voluminously in support of their stances and thoughts. Washington wrote 14 books, including his renowned autobiography, Up From Slavery, which was published in 1901. Washington continues to be recognized for helping to improve the relationships between blacks and whites, as well as helping blacks get further access to education and civil rights. 



Hunting Trips of a Ranchman

by Theodore Roosevelt

For a man who grew up to become the “Bull Moose”, Theodore Roosevelt was a sickly child, suffering from asthma and other maladies. But his physical weakness actually drove him to be more active, which also fostered an interest in nature. It also helped that Teddy’s family was wealthy, allowing him privileges including home school and the ability to attend Harvard, where he was an athlete and took an interest in naval affairs. After finishing at Harvard, Teddy entered politics, but it didn’t stop him from writing The Naval War of 1812 in 1882, establishing himself as a professional writer and historian.
 
In the 1890s, it was Teddy’s turn to make history, leading the Rough Riders during the Spanish-American War and being decorated for his service with a Medal of Honor. He parlayed his glory into the governorship of New York and then the Vice Presidency under William McKinley. When McKinley was assassinated in 1901, young Teddy was thrust into the presidency, one that would earn him a place on Mount Rushmore, Roosevelt’s “Square Deal” domestic policies favored average citizens while busting trusts and monopolies. Roosevelt also promoted conservation as an environmental stance, while his “speak softly and carry a big stick” foreign policy is still an oft used phrase today. Roosevelt even earned a Nobel Prize during his presidency. 
 
By the time Roosevelt died in 1919, he was an American icon. Today, Teddy is remembered for being an explorer, hunter, author, soldier, president, and safari adventurer, all of which combine into one unique reputation. 



Battles & Leaders of the Civil War: Stonewall Jackson in the Shenandoah

by John D. Imboden

John Daniel Imboden (February 16, 1823 – August 15, 1895) earned renown for leading his “Rangers” during the Civil War as a Confederate cavalry general and partisan fighter. After the war he returned to practicing law, began writing, and also was active in developing natural resources.

Despite having no military training, Imboden received a commission as captain in the Staunton Artillery of the Virginia State Militia on November 28, 1859. He commanded the unit during the capture of Harpers Ferry. While commanding an artillery battery at the First Battle of Bull Run, Imboden perforated his left eardrum firing an artillery piece, causing subsequent deafness in that ear. On September 9, 1862, Imboden left the artillery to recruit a battalion of partisan rangers and was promoted to colonel of the 62nd Virginia Mounted Infantry (1st Partisan Rangers). He fought with Maj. Gen. Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson in the Valley Campaign at Cross Keys and Port Republic. He was promoted to brigadier general on January 28, 1863.

This raid covered 400 miles (640 km) in 37 days. In the Gettysburg Campaign, Imboden’s brigade served under Maj. Gen. J.E.B. Stuart as the rearguard for Gen. Robert E. Lee’s movement north through the Shenandoah Valley. (His brigade did not participate in Stuart’s foray away from Lee’s army, but instead raided the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in Bedford County, Pennsylvania.) They spent the Battle of Gettysburg guarding ammunition and supply trains in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. During the Confederate retreat, Imboden was in charge of escorting the wagon trains of thousands of wounded soldiers back to Virginia. On July 6, 1863, the Potomac River was flooding at Williamsport, Maryland, and Imboden’s wagon train was trapped. He put together a defensive force that included an artillery battery and as many of the wounded who could operate muskets. This hastily organized force turned back attacks from Union cavalry generals John Buford and Judson Kilpatrick, saving the wagon train. Robert E. Lee praised Imboden for the way in which he “gallantly repulsed” the Union cavalry.

After the war, Imboden wrote an account of Stonewall Jackson’s legendary Shenandoah Valley Campaign that became part of the well known Battles & Leaders of the Civil War Series, discussing Stonewall’s movements up and down the valley with his “foot cavalry” marching over 600 miles in less than 50 days while tying up 3 different Union armies in the Valley.



George Washington’s Farewell Address

by George Washington

Every American is taught a pristine narrative of the life and legacy of George Washington and can easily recite the highlights of the “Father of Our Country”. The remarkable Virginian led an under-resourced, rag-tag army to ultimate victory in the American Revolution before becoming the nation’s first president, setting it on its path toward superpower status. He may not have actually chopped down a cherry tree or tossed a silver dollar across the Potomac, but his contemporaries considered his character above reproach. When Washington voluntary resigned as commander of the armies, he stunned the world. Everyone in the colonies and the world realized that Washington, at the head of the last army standing in the colonies, could have made himself king of the new United States on the spot, and it would have been a move supported by his rank and file soldiers. Instead, Washington became the first Westerner to voluntarily demobilize his army, ensuring civilian control of the new nation. King George III called Washington “the greatest character of the age” for making that decision.

As President from 1788-1796, Washington set every precedent for the executive branch of the new government, from forming a “Cabinet” to limiting himself to two terms. He even set precedents with his farewell address, which helped guide the policies of subsequent administrations.



An Excursion to Canada

by Henry David Thoreau

Henry David Thoreau (born David Henry Thoreau; July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862) is one of America’s most famous authors and poets, and one of the prominent writers of the Transcendentalist Era in the mid-19th century. Along with Ralph Waldo Emerson, who was a mentor of sorts to Thoreau, the two of them produced large bodies of work that formed the backbone of Transcendentalism. Thoreau in particular was an ardent abolitionist, naturalist, historian, philosopher, and also laid the groundwork for peaceful civil disobedience movements across the world in moral opposition to unjust states.

Thoreau’s most famous work is Walden, which he wrote after living on Walden Pond outside Concord, Massachusetts for over 2 years. Thoreau in particular took a keen interest in the idea of getting in touch with nature, writing in Walden, “Most of the luxuries and many of the so-called comforts of life are not only not indispensable, but positive hindrances to the elevation of mankind.”  



Battles and Leaders of the Civil War: Outgeneraled by Lee

by Darius N. Couch

With the exception of George Washington, perhaps the most famous and celebrated general in American history is Robert E. Lee (January 19, 1807 – October 12, 1870), despite the fact he led the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia against the Union in the Civil War. The son of U.S. Revolutionary War hero Henry “Light Horse Harry” Lee III, a relative of Martha Custis Washington, and a top graduate of West Point, Lee had distinguished himself so well before the Civil War that President Lincoln asked him to command the entire Union Army. Lee famously declined, serving his home state of Virginia instead after it seceded.

Lee constantly defeated the Union’s Army of the Potomac in the Eastern theater from 1862-1865, considerably frustrating Lincoln and his generals. His leadership of his army led to him being deified after the war by some of his former subordinates, especially Virginians, and he came to personify the Lost Cause’s ideal Southern soldier.
Of all the battles Lee fought in, he was most criticized for Gettysburg, particularly his order of Pickett’s Charge on the third and final day of the war. Despite the fact his principle subordinate and corps leader, General James Longstreet, advised against the charge, Lee went ahead with it, ending the army’s defeat at Gettysburg with a violent climax that left half of the men who charged killed or wounded.

Lee died in 1870 before he could write memoirs about the Civil War, so his only primary accounts were reports and dispatches during the war that were preserved in the Official Records. However, Lee was the subject of several articles in the very well known Battles & Leaders of the Civil War series. In Outgeneraled by Lee, Darius Couch, a major general in the Union Army of the Potomac who commanded the II Corps, discusses the Battle of Chancellorsville, often considered Lee’s most impressive victory.

 This edition includes illustrations of the battle of Chancellorsville, Couch, Lee, and more. 



Up on a Roof: With shingles at your back, the sky is the limit

by Brian Anglin

Sometimes, a barbaric yawp is better with a good friend, a bottle of cheap wine, and a visit or two from the local police.



Stand To… A Journey to Manhood

by E. Franklin Evans

While many authors have written books about Vietnam, very few of these authors have actually experienced the horrors of this war. Retired Lt. Colonel Frank Evans brings to the table his experiences in combat.

His memoir “Stand Toâ?¦A Journey to Manhood” is an amazing book written by a heroic man who served his country with great honor.

His memoir depicts how the struggle for survival brings about closeness among men. Evans and his comrades worked for a common goal, despite the danger threatening them, to stay alive and to defeat the enemy. They became a brotherhood with single mind and purpose. This work is relevant to today’s soldiers as they face the same emotions Evans faced.

When his Vietnam tour of duty ended, Evans decided to continue his military career with the U.S. Army. Today, he is a proponent for the men and women of the armed forces. He stresses the benefits in education, experience, and travel to be gained by serving in the military. Yet Evans is also realistic about the strain military life can place upon a family. His recounting of his own experiences enlightens readers about the realities of serving one’s country.

In Evans’ own words “Stand To” is about a young man’s daily experiences in an unfamiliar jungle environment and his emotions dealing with apprehension, loneliness, joy, sadness, and growth, much like the lives of the soldiers currently in the Middle East.
An excerpt follows:

T
he last glimmer of light crowned the distant trees and slowly faded to blackness. I sat on a sandbagged bunker drinking a cup of hot chocolate. I looked up at the stars and listened to the sounds from the jungle, unusual but somehow soothing. They reminded me of the sounds in the Florida swamps near Big Tree Park. Even the smells of the jungle were familiar, reminding me of peaceful nights camping a few miles from home.
A few yards to my right, my third squad leader, Staff Sergeant Baker, was giving final instructions to two of his men before they moved out to their listening post. He spoke quietly. “All right, you guys, I want you to maintain complete silence while you’re out there. Only use your radio to send your hourly SITREPS. Use your push-to-talk switch to break squelch. Once for â??yes’ or â??everything’s OK.’ Squeeze the switch twice for â??negative’ or â??we’ve got movement.’ Got it?”
“Yeah, Sarge. We know,” replied one of the men.
“Well, this is Brown’s first time on LP, so I want to make sure you all got it right.”
“Don’t worry ’bout me, Sarge. I got it,” said PFC Brown.
“OK. Move out and be quiet moving into your position. Let me know when you’re all set. Keep your ears alert for Charlie. We know the VC are moving through this area at night.”
The LPs quietly moved into their night locations using the designated paths through the protective wire defenses. Should they have to return quickly, they would use these same routes to run back to the safety of the perimeter. Upon arriving in their night positions they radioed back and maintained silence. Hourly situation reports, or SITREPS, would be relayed to the platoon CP through the prearranged radio signals. No voice communications would be sent unless enemy movement was detected. Earlier in the day the company’s 81mm mortars had registered defensive fires. Our supporting 105mm artillery battery was prepared to provide indirect fire support if necessary. These fires would help cover the quick return of the LPs.



Serial Killers True Crime: 10 Sickening True Crime Stories Of Serial Killers That Tortured, Hacked And Butchered Their Victims (Serial Killers True Crime, Cold Cases True Crime, True Crime Stories)

10 Sickening True Crime Stories Of Serial Killers That Tortured, Hacked And Butchered Their Victims

Today only, get this e-book for just $2.99. Read on your PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet or Kindle device.

People kill for many reasons, some of them understandable, but others are totally unfathomable. However, more gruesome than killing by usual means like stabbing, shooting or poisoning, is the act of butchery after the murder.

The motives for murder and serial killing, according to psychologists, range from thrill seeking and anger to attention seeking and financial gain. Although it might seem sickening, these killers and psychopaths exist in the past and the present time, and some of them still have their freedom and are lurking in different corners of the world.

Mutilating, dismembering, slaughtering and, even worse, eating a fellow human is beyond reason; an act that is horrific and probably not the work of a sane individual.

This book lists the most disgusting and disconcerting crimes in history: various stories of strange serial killers who chopped up, violated, cooked, and ate their victims.

From real-life vampires and werewolves who drank blood and ate raw human flesh, to butcher killers who mutilate, sexually abuse, chop and eat their victims for reasons of Satanism, sexual gratification and revenge upon society.

This book is jam-packed with mystery, gore and unbelievable true stories of serial killers.

A Strange Life

by Adrienne Nash

There seems nothing in human behaviour, so incomprehensible as sex change. Most born as male or female are happy to be so, but a small number of males and females feel unhappy in their natal sex and want to change.

Statistics of such a rare syndrome are bound to be inaccurate, but it seems that three or four males to every one female want to change sex. The statistic for men ranges from one in 7,400 to 30,000.

This is not a life style choice. It is a deep seated malignancy of the psyche, which makes every minute lived in what they consider to be the wrong sex, a life of supreme disappointment and longing.

There is no cure. In the 1960s, aversion therapy, group therapy and other more violent therapies were tried. For those afflicted who are denied therapy to change, the result is often suicide.

This is my story. I am supremely happy as a female but lived a life of misery as a male. Every day spent as a male seemed to be a lie. I tried my best to be what I was supposed to be, but eventually I could continue no longer. By luck this coincided with a change in medical attitudes, otherwise I believe I would not have survived.â??

Incredible True Holocaust Survivor Stories From World War 2: Accounts Of Holocaust History

Today only, get this e-book for just $2.99. Read on your PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet or Kindle device.

If there is one thing that can be said about humanity, it is that we are true survivors. From wars to natural disasters, man has managed to bring himself back from the brink of destruction.

We have thrived over the millennia we have inhabited this earth; from the caveman to the modern civilization we live in today, we have seen and braved storms of all kinds – both natural and man made.

Of these many disasters we have faced head on, none can be more telling than the two World Wars. As the names suggest, the whole world felt the impact of these wars, shook from the intangible tremors that spread to the entire globe. The Second World War in particular, was something of a power play, where millions lost their lives because one group believed in the power of their hegemony over all the rest.

The Holocaust could, perhaps, be described as the most disastrous and devastating man-made storm the world has ever seen. Called Ho-Shoah in Hebrew, the entire Second World War was nothing but state sponsored murder of those a dictator believed to be beneath him, simply because they were born different.

From Jews to homosexuals, millions were persecuted, and it took the western nations coming together to stop this madness. This â??sacrifice by fire’ – which is what the name itself means – can be taken as a true example of humanity’s darker side, which seeks to control and make others submit to its will.

To put it simply, the Holocaust remains a stark reminder of how dark humanity can truly be. It reminds us that given a chance, man has the ability to change into something that is less than animal and it is this capability we have to constantly guard against.

Peter Stuyvesant, the Last Dutch Governor of New Amsterdam

by John Abbott

John Abbott was one of the best 19th century historians, and he covered everything from antiquity to the modern era in works as varied as The History of Prussia and Kit Carson.

This is a biography of the Dutch official Peter Stuyvesant, who oversaw early New York City when it was still a colonial possession of the Netherlands before the British took it over.
