    Learn how to thrive on uncertainty instead of merely managing it―from the resiliency expert and author of PIVOT
    In his #1 bestselling guide to resilience, Pivot, business and personal development expert Adam Markel showed how building resilience can supercharge your life and career. Now, in Change Proof, he shows how you can move beyond managing change to actively embracing it―and actually using times of uncertainty, crisis and chaos to create opportunities and stimulate positive growth.
    Broken down into four parts, Change Proof explores the dynamics of change and provides a model of how to create the mindset that embraces it fully. Using case studies, current research and his years of experience as an expert in the integration of business and personal development, Markel uses real-life scenarios to illuminate the lessons in engaging chapters that include:
    The Myth of Balance The Resilience Bank Account Recovery vs. Burnout Even Michael Jordan Paused Get Out of Your Head A Little Failure Goes a Long Way Calm Is Contagious What Change-Proof Culture Can Do for You  
    You’ll learn how to choose change before it chooses you, what it takes (and what it means) to become truly change proof, and how to leverage your relationship to change.  You’ll also find practical strategies in the change-proof model (pause, ask, choose). With a combination of mindset recalibration and specific, hands-on ways to make it work, Change Proof will help you take the art and science of resilience to the next level―and look forward to future and all the changes it will bring, with full confidence.

    Why you SHOULD date your clients (theoretically) with best selling author Mark Young

    Why you SHOULD date your clients (theoretically) with best selling author Mark Young

    Why you SHOULD date your clients (theoretically) with best selling author Mark Young
    About Mark Young-
    If ever a person existed who can point out everything that is wrong with anything, you’ve just found him. It’s a terrible trait when trying to make friends, but one that always seems to make for successful implementation.
    Seriously, this guy can find the flaw in any plan –and manages to do it before anything goes wrong. It’s really annoying, at first, but if you keep an open mind to the criticism, it’s just gold. And having been an entrepreneur and marketer for nearly 30 years, we would be remiss not to listen.
     
    At the root of everything, however, Mark is an educator and teacher. Disassembling projects, campaigns, or even financial statements, Mark manages to reverse engineer a solution, then takes the time to teach anyone who will stop and listen. And it is no wonder, given the fact that he holds university degrees in nearly every discipline you can imagine. And if you ask him why, he’ll simply reply, “Why not?” Ask about the time he decided to join American MENSA on a dare –and succeeded. All of that said, Mark’s most admirable quality is the genuine concern and ownership he takes of his clients’ businesses. If there were a way to give more than 100%,this is the guy who would find a way to do it. He works the numbers, then works them again, reducing everything to a metric and finding ways to improve.
     
    “Do the right thing for the client, regardless of the cost. It’ll come back to you. I promise.” – Mark Young
     
    Date Your Clients is a step-by-step juxtaposition between the relational skills required in dating and those required to be successful in business. With chapter titles such as, The First Date, Meeting the Family, and The First Fight, the author seamlessly weaves his way through the complicated landscape of relationships and provides humourous illustrations of life’s worst moments.

    Unlocking the Keto code with Dr. Steven Gundry

    Unlocking the Keto code with Dr. Steven Gundry

    Unlocking the Keto code with Dr. Steven Gundry
    In his words: 
    Hello, my name is Dr. Steven Gundry – founder of Gundry MD. If you’re interested in getting help feeling more vital energy, getting your body into shape, and giving yourself the best possible chance at a long and happy life… I’d like to assure you: You are in the right place.
    I founded Gundry MD with one mission: To help dramatically improve human health, happiness, and longevity through my unique vision of diet and nutrition.
    I believe I’ve discovered some unconventional truths about human nutrition. The Gundry MD philosophy is a radical departure from the traditional dietary “wisdom” which has failed so many Americans over the past few decades.
    My research may offer a breakthrough for those of you who have struggled for years with your energy levels, your body, and your health. If you’ve tried everything and nothing has worked… I’d like to offer you HOPE.
    For over thirty years, I have been one of the world’s pre-eminent experts in heart surgery. My experiences took me to new frontiers of medical science. I was a driving force behind major breakthroughs in medical technology and surgical procedures – breakthroughs that revolutionized the way doctors save lives.
    But back in 2001, while I was Head of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Loma Linda University, I was asked to treat a chronically ill, overweight patient. This man was considered a hopeless case, someone who couldn’t be helped even by surgery. But “hopeless cases” have been a specialty of mine over the years, and I was willing to take on this man’s challenge when no one else would.
    I discovered that the patient had actually reversed his heart-threatening symptoms – symptoms he was told were inoperable – with a combination of natural, dietary nutrients. This led me to pursue further research of my own. The conclusions I made were unmistakable… and they led directly to the foundation of Gundry MD.
    One of the keys to strong, sustainable health lives in all of us… in the form of beneficial microbes. These “good bacteria” are in danger of dying out, due to dietary and environmental issues that overload our systems with threatening “bad” microbes. Once you begin taking care of your “good” microbes – or, as I like to call them, “your gut buddies” – you can begin an incredible transformation.
    And I know… because it worked for me.
    When I first met this “lost cause” patient, I was seriously overweight myself. I had high blood pressure, “bad” cholesterol, all the warning signs for oncoming diabetes and heart disease. I worked out regularly and tried to watch my diet, but I was still struggling with my weight. But by following the principles of my new research – a study I am now calling “Holobiotics” – I lost 70 pounds in just one year.
