Major General Sid Shachnow was ten-years-old when he escaped the notorious Kovno concentration camp in Nazi-occupied Lithuania. Later, he traveled to post-war Germany, and he earned a living as a courier for his mother's black market business. His family eventually came to America where he struggled to get an education, held down three jobs, and courted the girl of his dreams, whom he would marry and raise four daughters with. Major General Shachnow began his career in the U.S. Army as a driver for various officers in Europe, all of whom spotted potential in the young private and encouraged him to become an officer. After nearly 40 years of service to his country, Major General Shachnow could look back on a career and a life with pride, sadness, and a sense of duty spawned from freedom, both lost and earned. 1.

Pierre d'Entremont was the pampered youngest son of a successful French banking family. With an older brother to carry on the family tradition, Pierre is enrolled in the E'cole Militaire with the thought of a political career to follow his military service. But when the chief cashier embezzles all the bank's money and escapes to the Americas, Pierre suddenly has to earn a living. He has heard that a fortune can be made in King Leopold's Congo Free State. Although he has heard stories, mostly told by the British and Americans, of atrocities perpetrated on the natives by King Leopold's agents, stories the King denies, Pierre concludes that, given his military training, his best option is to enter King Leopold's Congo military service. Pierre arrives in the Congo in 1902. Within the first month, he becomes sick and nearly dies; makes an enemy of Harou, Leopold's most powerful man in the Congo; and, on the way to his posting, must always keep his gun within reach. Of Rulers and Ruled is an historical novel of one man's heroic struggle against the greed, cruelty, and terror of a corrupt government in colonial Africa. Pierre d'Entremont went to Africa to seek his fortune, and stayed to fight an evil regime. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rhett Samuel Price.

Few job titles carry the emotional charge of "salesman". And yet this widely misunderstood vocation generates more revenue for companies - and creates more opportunity for individuals - than virtually any other job. Millions of people are looking for a better way to make a living, but most would never consider becoming a salesman - even though no other job can offer the same number of available positions, income potential, schedule flexibility, or job security. Thousands of business owners are sure their fortunes could be improved, if only they could "find someone who can sell". But they have no idea how to advertise for, interview, select, hire, train, or manage productive salespeople. And most flounder when trying to sell themselves. All of these people would do well to listen to this audiobook. Originally intended as a how-to manual for career-changers considering sales, The Greatest Job You Never Thought Of has found its most receptive audience among those who already sell - or manage salespeople. Whether you are currently a salesperson, business owner, sales manager, trainer, or recruiter - or just someone considering sales as a career choice - The Greatest Job You Never Thought Of has a message for you: Why there are more positions available under the heading of Sales than any other single skill category The fundamental economic principle that explains why salespeople are able to earn more than almost anyone else in their company Why race, age, sex, education, national origin, or previous career experience have no bearing upon a person's ability to succeed in sales Exactly what is required to succeed in sales and how to develop those skills True stories of sales success in industries as divergent as industrial food service, insurance, professional audio equipment and home kitchen supplies Successful sales recruiti 1.

How do you build something from nothing? Hard work, lots of help, and a little bit of luck seem to be the three main components, according to businessman Jerry Isenhour. Isenhour worked many different jobs from a young age, but nothing stuck for him. He realized that he wasn't meant to just be a cog in a machine. He wanted to create something for himself. With this new determination, Isenhour created a chimney-service business. He shares with listeners the secrets of starting a successful business and how he branched into two other thriving companies - a fireplace and outdoor living retail business and a manufacturing business. He was on his way to creating an empire. Although Isenhour's story shows his individual perseverance, he stresses the help and support he received from his friends and family. Then, the big crash of 2008 happened, and Isenhour suddenly lost everything. Like so many other Americans that year, he was left wondering how to pick up the pieces of his career. The adventure that follows displays Isenhour's resilience, and it shows that anyone can make the most of a second chance. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jerry Isenhour.
