Do you want more? More hope, more joy, more fun and more fulfillment? Change is the essence of life; the biggest, most meaningful, and dramatic differences in our lives-and in our world-are really just the result of a series of small, seemingly insignificant changes. ´´Amazing changes can occur in the most surprisingly small amounts of time,´´ says Allyson Lewis, author and senior executive at a major financial services firm. ´´In just seven minutes my life changed forever, in this book I will share exactly what happened to me and how it can happen to you.´´ In The Seven Minute Difference, Lewis motivates business professionals to grow through micro-actions that can be completed in as little as seven minutes. According to Lewis, small efforts such as two extra sales calls, a daily action plan, a review of a competitor´s product, or a change of schedule can make the difference between mediocrity and excellence. This book coaches readers to realize their full potential by focusing on four fundamental truths: Change begins to happen the moment you decide to change; you must want to change; you must expect change; you should enjoy the process of change. Drawing upon years of experience as a motivational speaker and financial advisor, Lewis shows how she has successfully used these principles to help thousands of corporate executives, financial advisors, insurance executives, entrepreneurs, accountants, and attorneys change their lives. Chapters are filled with concrete examples, anecdotes, and sage advice, such as ´´life is like luggage, there are limits to what you can take on the journey´´ and ´´if you want your life to be different, you must be different.´´ With humor and flair, The Seven Minute Difference spurs people to unlock their purpose, knowledge, and passion, and as a result, transform their lives at work and at home.

Many organisations chase the Holy Grail of obtaining new customers, spending time, money, and energy on winning them only to provide them with a service or product that, quite frankly, is inferior. What a waste! If we do not look after our customers then someone else will. In addition, those dissatisfied customers will tell others about their experience, and once an organisation gains a negative reputation, it is extremely difficult to change it. Having a good reputation for excellent service and products is one very successful way of building a competitive advantage. This audiobook looks at how you can win more business by retaining customers and gaining recommendations from them; how to satisfy your customers needs; how to develop an effective customer-service policy; how to use positive behaviour and attitude to win more business; how to build a better rapport with your customers; and how to handle anger, complaints, and difficult customers and turn them into satisfied customers. 1.

The growth and diversity of careers and career pathways within medicine and health care can be confusing, yet it reflects the evolution of modern medicine which relies upon a myriad of different specialists each able to contribute their own particular skills to the care and wellbeing of the patient or client. Careers within the NHS are many and varied, with opportunities to train not only as nurses and doctors but also as dieticians, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, and speech and language therapists. These are only a portion of the huge number of careers that are available to suit all tastes and abilities whether it is in medicine or support and technical staff there is something for everyone who is interested in health care. The use of rehabilitation in order to effect recovery and rebuild lives in a way that is meaningful to the client is foremost on the agenda for every therapist. But it also offers tremendous scope to the would-be practitioner, whether their interest lies in physical medicine or mental health, or a mixture of both. Occupational therapists for example, work in all sectors of the National Health Service including acute admission units; short and long stay units and community roles. Occupational therapy attracts mature students who may have had diverse backgrounds before choosing to study. An interest in psychology and communication may well be an incentive to study speech therapy. Speech and language specialists work in private practice as well as the NHS. Their work is varied with clients who might involve a child who has a cleft palate in the morning and then an adult suffering from Parkinson´s disease in the afternoon. Nursing and midwifery have always offered a varied career path, with options to train further in health visiting or district nursing, research, and specializations within medicine and psychiatric nursing. 1.

Kelly Perdew, winner of The Apprentice 2, has what it takes to lead. His secret weapon: the principles he learned at West Point, as a U.S. Army Intelligence officer, and as an Airborne Ranger, principles that he´s applied to business with the same firepower determination that makes our military the best on the battlefield.
