The last two books of the year discuss corporate relationships, leadership, and management in the workplace.
Living Successfully with Screwed-Up People
Author: Elizabeth B. Brown
We are surrounded by people who we may not get along with or just don’t like. However, should that be something that stops you from accomplishing your goals? “Living Successfully with Screwed-Up People” teaches us that following:
1) Take back the power from the difficult people in your life
2) Respond productively when confronted
3) Remain poised and in control when everyone around you loses it
4) Win fairly in unfair battles
5) Let go of the past and live triumphantly now
Transformational Management and Leadership
Author: Richard A Hardy
Now, how do we manage those same people?
Transformational Management and Leadership teach us the do’s and don’ts of managing people with different backgrounds, different learning structure, and different personalities. It also teaches us how we behave and how we treat others affects how we lead and manage.
I’m so stoked to be a panelist for the 5th Annual Carolina Veteran Expo. I will be one of the many veterans participating in discussing my military experience. This event is a great opportunity for small business owners and entrepreneurs to display their product or brand. To become a vendor or to find out more about this event contact Joie R. Cook.
I just received my Mission 22 supplies in the mail today and I look forward to discussing my journey as a Marine. Mission 22 is a program that shines a light on the Veterans who struggle with PTSD due to transitioning from military life and the issues behind learning to adjust to civilian life after serving. On average, 22 Veterans commit suicide daily. Suicide is a big issue in the military and our mission is to help those who struggle with PTSD and those who have lost a loved one to PTSD with their journey to recovery.

Our next book for month 9 is “A Piece of Cake” by Cupcake Brown
Cupcake Brown was not born into a life of privilege, intellectual stimulation, or professional dynamics. Her younger years were not a model for achieving success; her youth interrupted by violence and emotional turbulence. At 11, she regularly engaged in prostitution, drugs, and alcohol. By age 13, she had graduated to gang activities and street crime. Unfortunately, life would get much worse before it got better as Cupcake spiraled into a life that hovered somewhere above state prison, at best, and death on the mean streets, at worst.
Cupcake’s story is about system failure, societal ignorance, and a little girl who, as a result, resigned to degradation, depression, deprivation, and defeat. To purchase this book click on links below.
