'It is time Mick Herron was recognised in his own right as the best thriller writer in Britain today' Sunday ExpressOld spooks carry the memory of tradecraft in their bones, and when Solomon Dortmund sees an envelope being passed from one pair of hands to another in a Marylebone cafe, he knows he's witnessed more than an innocent encounter. But in relaying his suspicions to John Bachelor, who babysits retired spies like Solly, he sets in train events which will alter lives. Bachelor himself, a hair's breadth away from sleeping in his car, is clawing his way back to stability; Hannah Weiss, the double agent whose recruitment was his only success, is starting to enjoy the secrets and lies her role demands; and Lech Wicinski, an Intelligence Service analyst, finds that a simple favour for an old acquaintance might derail his career. Meanwhile, Lady Di Taverner is trying to keep the Service on an even keel, and if that means throwing the odd crew member overboard, well: collateral damage is her speciality. A drop, in spook parlance, is the passing on of secret information. It's also what happens just before you hit the ground.

The Law Firm Revolution

If you're reading this book, you are no doubt a lawyer, someone managing a firm or looking to make a difference in the firm where you work. As part of this noble club of very bright, very talented professionals, your work is governed by tremendous rules, regulations, compliance standards and ethical requirements. Combine that with your commitment to your clients in matters, often life-changing. It's fair to say, your on-the-job responsibilities are many. Honoring all those masters can be challenging. First, you must serve your clients. It is, no doubt, a large part of your mission is to serve your clients with the thoroughness and professionalism that leads to positive outcomes. Sometimes a resolution doesn't turn out to be what you and your client set out to accomplish. But even then, if you've managed the case with care and treated the client responsively and respectfully, it is likely the client will come away recognizing that he's experienced superior service. Second, you must serve the Law. You are bound to certain standards-both practices that have been legislated and others that are tied to honoring rules and ethics. The specter of malpractice is forever a back drop for your initiatives. And to circumvent the attention to that master compromises service to your client. Finally, you must serve those around you: your partners, paralegals and administrative staff. They are there to assist you with the tasks that are necessary to completion of case work yet, in the case of your administrative staff, outside the scope of strictly legal matters and the practice of law. You must rely on them to perform to their maximum capability and then some. But for them to perform at that high level, you must treat the with respect and make them understand that their work and their contributions are valued and that they are an integral part of your team. It's tough to manage all these masters, and the pressure to do so can get you into the weeds. You take on everything and do too much, particularly when it comes to the administrative, nonlegal tasks such as marketing, reviews, reports, court customer service, etc.. Lawyers, particularly those in small or solo firms, have been doing this for years. Their result: stacks of paperwork piled high in their offices, long hours at work, and, in worst case scenarios, a growing list of dissatisfied clients who are critical of their lawyer's lack of responsiveness. As troubling, the scenario translates to the absence of work/life balance, undue stress on families and personal lives that suffer. In fact, it has been said, that because they feel burdened and overwhelmed with their work, lawyers often come across as an unhappy lot. But today, innovative ideas and the evolution of technology tools are available as phenomenal aids that can help you, develop processes, nurture people and maximize technology. This book identifies many of the key ideas that will improve your practice management and make your workday more productive. That's not to say you'll never encounter bumps in the road. But when you do, you will recognize that you have the knowledge to accept them, learn from them and address them to grow your practice and further your professional development. And, best of all, because of the more effective and efficient way you'll be managing your practice, you may even recapture the passion that set you on this rewarding and important career path in the first place. It's never too late...

If you had told me before then that I would one day work from the comfort of my own home, that I would learn to make money online, speak before crowds, or write a book, I would have said you were crazy! My life was going as planned. First a career as a Navy Cryptologist and Russian linguist. Then raising my family in my husband's hometown of Springdale, Arkansas. We owned a nice home. My daughters were active in school and we were active in church. I devoted my time to working for the local Girl Scout Council, an organization I fully support. My husband was an electronics technician for a large company. Life was good. But then the unthinkable happened. We had just moved from Springdale to a larger home in a more rural area of Rogers, AR. My mom and dad were getting older and the plan was to move them into the house in Springdale so they would be closer to us. But just as everything seemed to be going according to plan, I received the phone call no daughter wants to get. My mother had suddenly passed away and I was left to care for my father. My father suffered from Alzheimer's disease. I had long ago promised that I would never place him in a home as long as I was able to care for him. I have nothing against nursing homes. But in our culture, aging parents are cared for at home as long as possible. And so we put the house in Springdale up for rent and prepared to welcome my father into our home. It soon became clear that I was not going to be able to continue working outside the home and care for him. But how to quit my job and still earn a living? I searched everywhere for the answer. And then one day, I met the two people who would change my life. One introduced me to network marketing. The other introduced me to the power of the internet. And the rest - as they say - is history. I had the privilege of caring for my father for eight years. In 2008, he passed on, having spent his final years surrounded by children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. I still miss him looking over my shoulder while I'm working asking what I'm writing. I share all this with you because it shows what having your own business, especially a network marketing business, can do. Without this opportunity, my father would have spent his final years in a home, waiting for us to find the time in our busy schedules to stop by for a quick visit. This industry gave me the freedom to keep my promise to him. And after he was gone, it gave me the ability so spend time with grandchildren, to create fabulous memories with my family, to travel with my husband, to meet amazing people, and to help so many others change their lives. If you are willing to learn and work hard, you can have this freedom too. You can create the life you have always wanted for you and your family. Are you ready? Let's do this! Endorsement by Brian Basilico: Melodieann is a friend and living proof of the fact that when someone likes and believes in your product or service they become a huge asset for your business. She is a successful entrepreneur who is still there and doing that. If you want to learn from someone who has 'Been There, Done that,' you have come to the right place. You will learn WHAT is important, HOW most of what you hear from MLM trainers and veterans is outdated. It's about how YOU can pay it forward to ensure your own success. This book will show you how to open your mind to becoming a successful Network Marketing consultant, trainer and advocate. If you think it's all about building more drones below you in the MLM chain to sell your stuff…please drop this book and go back to your day job.

The Failure Free Reading Methodology: New Hope ...

zzgl. 3,00 € Versand

8 Million students in grades 4-12 cannot comprehend grade level reading material. 440 Thousand students sitting in American classrooms K-12 have a total reading vocabulary of less than fifty words. 3 Thousand students drop out of school each day. 40 Percent of African-American and Latino students will not graduate on time or with a regular high school diploma. 25 Times the likelihood that non-readers and high school students testing below the twentieth percentile will drop out of school. Every day students across the country are being labeled and put into 'special' programs. The gap between those students and their peers reading at grade level simply continues to grow until the gap seems too large to overcome. Often these students begin acting out in class because they have learned that it is better to go one on one with the principal versus being embarrassed and frustrated in front of their peers. It is not the fault of the student, teacher, or parent. We must stop looking for the reason to justify the failure and find a way to over come it. Simply labeling students Dyslexic, Learning Disabled, and Autistic will not offer them a reading solution. These students do not need remediation; they need an accelerated compensatory approach to mastering language and reading skills. Dr. Joe Lockavitch has been in the trenches with non-readers, their families, and their teachers for over thirty years. Students in the bottom reading percentiles (0-15th %) are slipping through the cracks right before our eyes. Based on his experiences in the classroom with non-readers, Dr. Lockavitch (former college professor, school psychologist, special education director) researched and developed a new reading methodology targeting non-readers of all ages. Highly structured, repetitious, and non-phonic, The Failure Free Reading Methodology is an accelerated language program designed to give students, parents, and teachers the hope and the results they deserve. Dr. Lockavitch has seen it all. Throughout his career he has given reading demonstrations in places that have ranged from the heart of the Mississippi Delta, inner city schools in Detroit and Chicago, maximum-security prisons in South Carolina, and after school programs in Los Angeles, California. He will only do a demonstration under one condition and make only one claim, 'I'll only work with your worst students. If you don't see immediate improvement in their reading ability within 30 minutes, I'll walk out the door.' He hasn't walked out yet. Dr. Joseph F. Lockavitch, a former classroom teacher, school psychologist, university professor, special education director, and applied researcher, is the author and developer of: The Failure Free Reading Program, Don't Close the Book on Your Not-Yet Readers, Joseph's Readers Talking Software for Non-Readers, Verbal Master-An Accelerated Vocabulary Program, and The Test of Lateral Awareness and Directionality. Dr. Lockavitch is also the author of numerous published research articles. Dr. Lockavitch has spent the past thirty years training thousands of teachers, parents and administrators across the nation on how to meet the unique needs of America's non-readers. Featured on the PBS NewsHour with Jim Lehrer and mentioned on national radio shows such as: Tom Joyner, Dr. Laura, Mike Gallagher, and Michael Medved, Dr. Lockavitch holds a Doctorate of Education from Boston University and a Master of Science in Special Education from Southern Connecticut State. In addition, Failure Free Reading is one of the nation's most approved Supplemental Educational Service providers - directly serving over ten thousand students and clocking close to three hundred thousand tutoring hours.
