Halden Zimmerman, a successful blogger with a wealth of professional experience in mechanical engineering and corporate leadership, discusses the methods and techniques aspiring bloggers can apply as they seek to achieve long-term financial security through their blogging career. With the release of Halden Zimmermann's Guide to High-Impact Blogs for Life-Changing Income, beginner and veteran bloggers alike are able to benefit from the unique and data-driven approach developed by Mr. Zimmerman with the explicit goal of creating a stable source of life-changing income. Unlike other blogging guides and programs, Mr. Zimmerman's "high-impact" approach is based on the concept that increased income cannot be truly life changing if the income increase comes with greater responsibilities or increased demands on time. The goal of high-impact blogging is to generate a significant source of income that only requires an initial investment of time during the planning and implementation stages. Once the blog debuts and begins to earn income, an effective high-impact blog will consistently generate revenue without demanding a continued time commitment. Through practical advice and personal insight gleaned from his first-hand experience as a blogger, Mr. Zimmerman espouses a step-by-step approach that begins with the pre-planning stages and concludes with the explanation of several strategies for expansion to platforms beyond blogging. Detailed explanations of commonly overlooked technical aspects abound, and Mr. Zimmerman outlines a strategy that clearly values the establishment of a strong foundation based on a thorough planning process. The attention to detail recommended by Mr. Zimmerman throughout the planning stages is critical for bloggers seeking to create a passive source of income through their blogging platform. 1.

Unlike most public speaking audiobooks, Public Speaking to Get Business doesn't tell you how to become a better speaker, build your stage presence and confidence, prepare a stellar presentation, or the like. There are already a ton of good guides out there on those topics. What's missing from those guides is a discussion of how speaking gigs are actually booked where you can practice your skills, demonstrate your expertise, and attract followers and customers to you. Without the chance to get in front of real audiences, in person or online, it doesn't matter how great a speaker you are. What you'll discover are the types of speaking opportunities that are out there, along with suggestions for handling challenging situations before, during, and after your presentations that can eat up your time, energy, and money. Here's a preview of what's discussed: Who hires public speakers? Why you don't want to be a "professional" speaker. What should you talk about? Does public speaking help you sell books? And can your book help you get speaking gigs? How many sales leads can you really get from public speaking? How to evaluate public speaking opportunities. Dealing with unwanted post-presentation consultation requests. Twenty questions to ask your event host or organizer. This audiobook is made by business speaker, author, and blogger Dr. Heidi Thorne MBA/DBA, who has more than 25 years in sales, marketing, advertising, and publishing. You'll learn from her real-world insight and experience from speaking to small business and association audiences throughout her career. If you've been curious about what it's really like to speak to promote yourself and your business, this audiobook is worth a listen! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Heidi Thorne.

Catholic new-media personality and best-selling author Lisa M. Hendey is fueled by a lifelong passion for her faith. In The Grace of Yes, she guides listeners through pivotal moments of her journey and the eight virtues that have helped her - and will help listeners - learn how to say yes to God. Beloved Catholic blogger Lisa Hendey explores eight spiritual virtues that she believes are foundational to the Christian life. In opening windows to pivotal moments of her own spiritual journey, she helps listeners learn about belief, generativity, creativity, integrity, humility, vulnerability, saying no, and starting over, and shows how these virtues lead to generous living and the ability to joyously say yes to God. Hendey reflects candidly on real-life struggles: the identity adjustment of leaving a blossoming career to become a stay-at-home mom; the temptation of Divahood as her online celebrity grew; the freedom and opportunities of empty-nest status versus the middle-aged body's pull to slow down; her encounters with spiritual community during treatment for cancer; and the contrast between the profound lingering grief she confronted at a Rwandan genocide memorial and the astounding willingness of survivors there to forgive. Listeners encounter Hendey's own struggles and successes while soaking up her characteristic warmth and good advice. Hendey provides questions for personal reflection and a prayer to close the exploration of each virtue. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa M. Hendey.

The popular Patheos blogger and a prominent figure within the Emerging Church Movement and Progressive Christianity explains how the "American Christianity" we are currently taught is actually a fear-saturated distortion of biblical faith. Benjamin L. Corey thought he was suffering a crisis of faith, but it turned out to be a spiritual awakening. Corey became aware that the constant fear of hell and judgment that defined his Christian faith was out of sync with the idea that God acts from love and promises to deliver us from fear. In the wake of this realization came newfound insights - from reading the Bible to reexamining American life and the church's role in the wider world. Corey learned that what he had been taught was a distorted version of Christianity that was not only untrue but caused real spiritual harm. He also discovered that he wasn't alone. Many Christians are yearning to distinguish between the Christianity that has become a rigid American civil religion and the authentic Christian faith embodied in Jesus. As he recounts his own spiritual journey, Corey offers a powerful and inspiring message of hope for every Christian increasingly frustrated with the church today. Do not be discouraged, he assures them. You do not need to give up your faith; you can rediscover the reality of a vibrant Christianity that delivers us from fear and inspires and guides us all today. 1. Language: English.
