The cornerstone of courage is optimism.
In 1992, at the end of the Cold War, Steven Myers became the first American since Charles Lindbergh in 1931, to pilot an aircraft into the Russian Kamchatka peninsula. There he formed one of the first post-Soviet era joint ventures—a pioneering, expansive, business enterprise with the potential to transform the lives of the people of the Russian Far East.
Steve’s remarkable true story recounts the dramatic adventure, courageous entrepreneurship, and intrigue in the creation of a breakthrough business in a remote corner of the world, a wonderous place few people have been to or know anything about.
The underlying theme of the story is the clash of two vastly different cultures: Americans, with go-for-broke, entrepreneurial “can do” attitudes, and Russians with a long, painful history of constraining rules, risk aversion, and fear.
After years of hard work, just as the enterprise is about to achieve breakthrough success, an unexpected warning by US government agents alerts Myers that his life is in danger if he continues with his business activities in Russia. How he reacts, and what he does next, provides a gripping, dramatic climax to the story.
A timeless exploration of human conflict, determination, and power, this book will inspire adventurers, aviators, entrepreneurs, business leaders, politicians, and diplomats to push past their fears and take command of their dreams. After all, “the cornerstone of courage is optimism.”

Resolve the Two Main Issues with Meetings
There are two main problems with meetings. First, there’s a quantity problem (too many meetings), and second, there’s a quality problem (too many bad meetings).
After reading this short book, you’ll learn how to address both those problems. You will learn how to have fewer meetings, how to have better meetings, and how to get the most out of your meetings to get things done. You’ll benefit by saving your team and yourself some time, and you’ll end up with more successful meetings.
The book is divided into three sections:
Section I: Before Your Online Meeting
- Decide on a Need and an Objective
- Determine the Attendees and Draft an Agenda
- Define the Remote Logistics
- Send the Invite, Agenda, and Reminders

- Join Early and Cover the Ground Rules
- Run Through the Agenda
- Capture the Meeting Minutes
- Close with a Review
Section III: After Your Online Meeting
- Distribute the Meeting Minutes
- Follow Up on Action Items
Note: The subject of meetings can be really boring, and you’ve probably heard most of the common-sense advice about meetings before, so there’s nothing earth-shattering about the material in this book. However, if you follow all the steps to the letter, then this will be the only book you’re ever going to need about managing your virtual teams effectively, guaranteed.
As a free bonus for purchasing this book, you’ll get a free Meeting Minutes Template and a free Meeting Agenda Template (MS Word format) that you can copy and paste and use with your own team.

What do a bubbly six year old, a Christian Scientist and a farmhouse boarder have in common? They were all brutally murdered by a person that society least expected.
In Heinous: Forgotten Murders From the 1910s, you’ll travel back to a violent decade – a time when “idiots and morons” were police departments’ first suspects, when journalists had the opportunity to conduct interrogations and when forensics was in its infancy. It also was a decade when crime of all varieties was surging, and experts blamed everything from immigration to lax parenting.
If you’re fascinated by true crime history, you’ll enjoy these 17 tales of murder and mysterious deaths. The people you’ll meet include Hans Schmidt, a priest who believed his crime was divinely inspired; Russell Pethrick, a 22-year-old grocery delivery boy who was caught based on a new technology – fingerprint analysis; Thomas Fitzgerald, a pedophile who enjoyed showing little girls “pretty” pictures of dead people; and Nathan Swartz, a murder suspect whose family experienced intense shame after he went on the lam.
Heinous: Forgotten Murders From the 1910s also includes a bonus case: What Happened to Dorothy Arnold? The socialite’s baffling disappearance made headlines for decades and remains unsolved to this day.
These stories made headlines more than a century ago and provide insight into how the media covered sensational crimes.No products found.

Within each of us lies the hero we’ve all been waiting for and want to become—our true self. Bringing this hero to work unleashes our greatest potential, resulting in higher earnings, increased satisfaction, and greater well-being. This book serves to help the struggling professional, executive, or entrepreneur in discovering their Inner Hero—which emerges with the convergence of heightened awareness, stronger boundaries, and improved communication.
Through his words and work, Clint Barr hopes to put an end to advice and mantras along the lines of “be like them,” “play the part,” and “fake it until you make it.” These concepts are often part of what we’re told to do. Such mindsets ultimately lead to lower performance output, displeasure with chosen profession, and higher stress levels from all things career and employment.
For too long, we continue sacrificing our sense of self and our happiness, never receiving what we want while pretending to be something we’re not. Heroic Potential offers a new paradigm from which to approach our lives, both professionally and personally. Through Clint’s knowledge of The Birkman Method, compelling case studies, and personal experiences, this book walks through five levels of self-work that lead to a greater understanding of who we are and the purpose for which each of us were created.
