About the Book

Forties on Fire; Kathryn Kos
Adult; Self-help; 130 pages

Independently published January 22, 2019

Your 30s and 40s are loaded with surprises. More fatigue. Less “You Time.” Trampled romance. Dissatisfaction with your body.  Mood swings. The often overlooked season of perimenopause lurking around every corner.

Sound familiar?

Now raise your hand if you wish you could move past these symptoms of imbalance and live the life you’ve always dreamed.

You would, right?

Good news: Kathryn Kos is here to help, with her myth-busting, action-boosting book, Forties on Fire: Rediscover your Sexuality, Learn to Honor Your Moods, and Thrive Throughout Your 40s and Beyond. 

Kos is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with an M.Ed. in Rehabilitation Counseling and by taking a functional approach to health, Kos helps her clients find the root causes of their conditions to help them find healing once and for all.

Ready to meet the strong, cheerful, actualized woman you know you can be?

Jenn’s Review

Are you a woman in her late thirties, or heading into her forties and beyond? You haven’t hit menopause yet, but your life, emotions and health are quickly spiraling out of control? Grab a copy of Kathryn Kos’s little book, Forties on Fire, and start moving the needle back towards control.

Ms. Kos explains clearly why everything starts getting nuts for us women heading into middle age – as a 42 year old woman struggling with chronic illness, this hit home for me page after page. She dissects perimenopausal life into a number of areas, including diet and sleep, then goes further into grounding and play.

This little volume is less than 200 pages, but the information inside is disseminated concisely and with a hefty dose of love. I remember my own mother going through this phase of life, and wonder if this information would have helped her. As for me, I’m already working on implenting the recommendations in this book. I would have loved the book more had the author gone into more depth in some areas – but this is certainly a prime springboard for going deeper!

In summary, grab this book. Whether you’re 35 and just starting a family, or you’re the 45 year old mother of teens – this is where to start with understanding the changes in your body and mind.

In Get Rich, Lucky Bitch!, you’ll get the tools and inspiration you need to go to the next level of wealth – whether you’re starting from scratch or itching to break through the million-dollar mark.

As a result of all this work, her income doubled, then tripled, and in a few years she went from always being broke to being a successful entrepreneur. And in this book she teaches you how create the same shifts in your own life.

This book is the most practical manifestation book you’ll ever read. You’ll get day-to-day actions, inspiration, kick-up-the-butt real talk and loving advice. There’s no amount of money you could want that’s too big or too small. Denise will teach you to cut through years of under-earning and chronic underserving, fly through your income goals, heal your money wounds and break through old self-beliefs.

Jenn’s Review

Are you one of the THOUSANDS of women trying to better your family’s situation, but you just can’t seem to get ahead? Do you make progress, only to face more setbacks that put you even farther behind? I hear you, and so does Denise Duffield-Thomas, and she’s addressed the issue in her book, Get Rich, Lucky Bitch.

If you’ve never seen Denise speak, either in person or on social media, this book is a fantastic introduction to her warm, witty, and often blunt personality. She’s helped thousands of women improve their income, their businesses, and their lives with the five simple (but not always easy) steps outlined in this book.

I’ll warn you now: If you are brave enough to do the hard work in this book, you’ll start to see changes happening fast. But the work isn’t always easy, and at times, it can be downright painful to take an honest look at your life, take responsibility for your situation, and make the mental, emotional, or financial shifts needed to move past what’s holding you back.

In Get Rich Lucky Bitch, Denise walks readers through the five-step process to go from zero to wealthy. No dodgy MLM strategies, no get rich quick scheme. Just honest, straight to the point instructions, laced liberally with examples from her own life, and illustrations from her coaching clients and community.

Stop holding yourself back. Grab a copy of this book and change your world!

Do You Want to Know the Secret to Writing a Non-Fiction Business Book Without Wasting Time or Money?

Write Your Book in a Flash shows business executives, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders how to get focused fast, so you can write your book without tearing your hair out.

Most people dream of writing a book, but they get stopped in their tracks because of a fatal flaw. Without a clear system for writing a book, nothing gets finished.

The secret to completing a book quickly is to have a system. Unlike books that show you why you should write a book, this book actually shows you how to write a book! You’ll discover:

  • How to write a simple outline that makes the writing process faster and easier
  • How to get stunning testimonials to help sell your book
  • How to find and manage beta readers who will share honest feedback before the book is published
  • How to research interesting ideas, stories, and facts so you never run out of ideas or information
  • How to overcome “The Imposter Syndrome” and other limiting beliefs that stifle nearly every would-be author

Unlike other books on writing, Write Your Book in a Flash doesn’t debate the pros and cons of self-publishing vs. traditional publishing. Instead, it shows how to use your own work style and personal strengths, preferences, and personality, so you can write the book you were meant to share with the world.

Jenn’s Review

They say that writing a book is great for your career, especially if you are an entrepreneur. Writing a book demonstrates expertise and let’s potential clients get a feel for who you are. But actually writing the book can waylay the best intentions and the most focused business minds. Dan Janal’s book, Write Your Book in a Flash, helps you cut through the distractions, and get the book done.

Mr. Janal’s tone is conversational and down to earth, as he walks the reader through the step by step process of setting up a manuscript and getting down to work to finish the book.

Each chapter is cleanly laid out and easy to refer back to. Exercises abound, and a link to download the worksheets is tagged after each step. I’ve printed mine out, and have them ready to copy for each future project.

The truly great thing about this book is that the process can be applied to a variety of platforms, and not just the standard 200 page business book. It can also be used for planning blogs and other informational platform products.

And if writing the book yourself is too daunting, Mr. Janal has included information on working with coaches and ghostwriters.

This is a fantastic read/guide if publishing nonfiction is the next step for your business or career. Grab this book, print the worksheets, and get going!

About the book:

Awakening to Life:: Your Sacred Guide to Consciously Creating a Life of Purpose, Magic, and Miracles by Patricia Young
Inspired Living Publishing, LLC.
May 29, 2018

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER & #1 BESTSELLER in Mid-Life Management
Inside Awakening to Life: Your Sacred Guide to Consciously Creating a Life of Purpose, Magic, and Miracles are the permission, validation, and action steps you need to break free of what’s been holding you back. With honesty, grace, and compassion, Transformational Life Coach Patricia Young will teach you how to wholeheartedly embrace the possibilities of a truly authentic, inspired life-a life created by you, for you, in total alignment with your deepest core.

We all have a core of divine power within us, just waiting to be awakened. When we fully connect to this part of ourselves-to our desires, our intuition, and our greater purpose for being-a truly magical evolution begins to occur. We discover that we can work miracles in our own lives, and in the world, simply by being who we are.

If you are feeling lost, stuck, or disempowered; if you are no longer satisfied living by others’ rules; if your heart is longing to shine its light and illuminate the path of your passion, you are in the right place. In your hands, you hold the key to becoming everything you already are, and more.

Jenn’s Review:

Feeling stuck in life, paralyzed by fear and indecision? Do you feel trapped in a dead end job that’s slowly sucking the life out of you? Start with Patricia Young’s, Awakening to Life.

Young breaks down how she got herself unstuck, found herself and her passions, and moved in the direction of her dreams, and shares the process she uses with her coaching clients into nine simple steps that comprise the chapters of this book.

Covering such topics as dreams, feeling trapped, fear, passions, and goals, readers can follow the steps to find their own self again and break free of living to the expectations of others. The author provides journal prompts and worksheets for moving through the steps, as well.

Patricia Young’s writing is deeply personal and vulnerable as she shares her own journey as it relates to the steps she outlines.

Regardless of your circumstances, ability level, or past, Awakening to Life can walk you through the process of breaking free, finding healing and purpose, and living an authentic life.

New book review on Thrice Read Books: Adult Nonfiction/self help - Your Next 24 Hours by Hal Donaldson

About the Book

Your Next 24 Hours: One Day of Kindness Can Change Everything, Hal Donaldson with Kirk Noonan

Adult, Self Help, 178 Pages

Baker Books (February 14, 2017)

If asked, who among us wouldn’t say we were kind people? But kindness is often manifested in feelings of pity or sympathy–especially when others are watching–rather than in deeds. And when it comes down to it, what good does mere feeling do for the world?

Your Next 24 Hours is about something much bigger–a lifestyle of kindness, without thought of reciprocation, extended toward every person in our lives, both friend and foe. Through powerful true stories of kindness lived out, this book shows readers the enormous difference they can make through small, doable acts of kindness in their families, communities, workplaces, schools, and churches. It shows how every encounter with another person is an opportunity to be kind–and a chance to change our world.

Readers of Your Next 24 Hours will find deep satisfaction and joy as they discover how they can be part of a revolution of kindness that starts with them and reaches out through every person their lives touch.

Jenn’s Review

Kindness is King, and the world could be an entirely different place if all of us made the choice to pay homage.

Through dozens of real-life examples, both famous and mundane, Hal Donaldson and co-author Kirk Noonan illustrate more than 20 ways and reasons to make kindness, not only a random act but a purposeful habit.

My teenager recently asked me, “Why are people so unkind?”

The answer to changing that is in this slender volume, as kindness is contagious.

If you’d like to reach out to others but aren’t sure where to start, I recommend letting this little book be your launch pad. Spend 24 hours in selfless kindness using the ideas in this book, and watch the ripples spread.

Personal Mastery – Book Review

About the Book;

I have been asked by hundreds of my friends: Courtney Lodge, what secrets have you used to achieve so much as such a young age?

How did you become: Deputy Superintendent of Police by age 26; Branch Manager at JNBS by age 30; CEO of GSB Credit Union by age 35; CEO of the Caribbean Confederation of Credit Unions (CCCU) with responsibility for over 342 credit unions in 18 countries by age 36; Author at 37; business owner (Strategic Corporate Interventions, SCI, Ltd) at 37, worked for the German BKA/FBI, met numerous presidents/prime ministers and other government officials, visited over 40 countries, and so much more…?

This book, Personal Mastery shows how you can do this and much more. It is not limited only to professional growth, but all areas of your life. 

The 7 Dimensions (7Ds) of Personal Mastery are explained and you are then empowered to use tools and templates to get started in creating your very own Personal Mastery Strategic Life Plans. 
Based on the level of your diligence and beliefs, you will see immediate improvements in the way you think and operate, and in the results you get in your life.

If you only knew how much money has flowed into my life before age 40, you too would want to jump on this Personal Mastery train before the month ends.

More importantly, however, if you knew the growth I have experienced in my intellectual, emotional, physical, spiritual and relational development, you would embrace Personal Mastery before today ends. You can maximize your potential…NOW!

Buy this book NOW! Use it to enhance your personal development. Tell others about it. Tweet and chat about it online. Help others to develop their powers of Personal Mastery too. The world will be a better place.

Courtney “G.O.” Lodge, 
Author, Transformational Speaker, Business Transformation Consultant

Jenn’s Review:

I first saw this book on Amazon about a year ago when I started delving into learning about the Law of Attraction. I finally got around to buying it in December, and just finished it this week, as I’ve been slowly working through the exercises listed as I read.

Unlike a number of self-published, self-help books, this one doesn’t spend 50 pages convincing you that his methods work. No, instead, he dives straight into how to use the methods (the Personal Mastery Plan) and walks you, step by step, through creating a Plan for your own life. 

Remember, I’m a planning freak, and this Plan soothed that part of me. Even before I had the complete Plan (all seven dimensions that Mr. Lodge goes over), I began to see changes in my attitude, my businesses and my personal life. This is not “so much bunk” as so many other planning guides tend towards, but real, honest, working methods towards achieving newer and greater heights.

Yes, unlike most similar length books, it took me almost two months to get through it – however, they’ve been life-altering, mindset-changing months that have set me on a path towards personal, vocational and financial success.

As a serial book reviewer, I’ve read countless books. Very few leave my desk with the words, “Everyone should read this book.” Even fewer leave me wondering how I can incorporate them into my daughter’s education. 

This one has.

The Orgasmic Way – Review

Book Review for The Orgasmic Way by Adana Washington - Metaphysics, Law of Attraction, Personal Development

About the book:

A lot of people drag their feet through life, wondering when the fun part will start. They dread waking up every morning, because they are so miserable in their everyday lives. Nothing is fulfilling. Not very much about their daily routine excites them. And years down the line, they’ll be doing the same exact thing, because they believe it can’t get any better.

But you want more than that. You want passion and excitement. You want to look forward to your day, and know that your work has meaning, that you’re expressing your creativity, and that you’re manifesting all that you desire. You want to feel good about yourself and what you want, and you want to make things happen that seem impossible, but would feel so damn good.

You want to live the Orgasmic Way.

The Orgasmic Way is about achieving pleasure and satisfaction in your everyday life. You are not here to suffer and be miserable. You are here to shine, to feel joy and excitement, and to experience all the wonderful things that make you feel good in this life.

Living the Orgasmic Way will help you:
Banish your broken beliefs and create new empowering ones.
Embrace your Shadow and find your Light.
Get to the heart of what you want and how you want to feel.
Bring your point of focus to the things that you truly want in life.

The Orgasmic Way is a guide filled with all kinds of observations, inspirations and instigations to help you channel the power of your Root, Sacral and Solar Plexus chakras in order to manifest the life that you want to live.

Jenn’s Review:

Lately, I’ve been diving really deep, and I mean really deep, into the laws of Attraction and Manifestation; and recently I was invited to an online class about using the lower chakras and sexual energy for manifestation. (If you are utterly lost at this point, I get it – I teach and mentor on these topics over on my other website.) That class piqued my curiosity, and sent me racing to Amazon to see what books I could find on the topic.

This was the first of the books I looked at that I actually bought and read. It’s a diminutive 132 pages, and isn’t well edited (missing punctuation and words abound, and the few graphics seem to be missing from the Kindle edition), but the information is good.

I had planned on reading a chapter a week, as I do with many of my personal development/business development books, but I ended up caught up in this information, and finished it in about 2 days (of 1-1 1/2 hour reading sessions). Contrary to the title, this is not a book all about sex. In fact, she doesn’t spend a lot of time talking about orgasms at all, though she does cover creative energy and manifestation in depth, which led me to a number of “Ah-HA!” moments. [such as the subtle connection between the sexual revolution and the technological revolution…]

If you are a student of the Law of Attraction and the Law of Manifestation, this is a must-read, especially if you are stuck. The in-depth work that the author leads the reader through near the end are of significant benefit toward finding your manifestation blocks.

Meditation: How To Meditate To Get Rid Of Stress, Anxiety, Depression And Feel Happy – Review

Book Review Meditation How to Meditate to Get Rid of Stress, Anxiety, Depression and Feel Happy by Will Huynh

About this book: 

According to Zen Buddhism, life is full of suffering, which is brought about by our attachment to things and people. We all have those moments when we feel we are just about to give up in life (we are depressed), feel stressed by our past, and are anxious about our future. This is just normal to everyone around the world. But while some of us can handle the stress, anxiety and depression that comes with the challenges that life throws at us, there are those instances when we feel we cannot just handle it. During such times, we become angry with ourselves, situations and the people around us. We lose hope in our future and no matter how much we try to fake a smile, it just doesn’t work. 

Well, do you know that you could end up committing suicide if you continue harboring stress, anxiety, and depression? And even if you don’t commit suicide, the simple fact that you are constantly depressed, anxious and stressed puts your body on overdrive, which means that you are likely to end up suffering from various health complications including but not limited to hypertension, heart disease, obesity, digestion problems and a lot more. Well, if you’ve already started experiencing those and want to change your live for the better, you probably need to start thinking of how to introduce meditation into your life. If you are new to meditation, you are likely to think it isn’t something you should even try because it is for the monks. Well, this isn’t true. In this book, I will show you how to meditate to fight stress, depression, anxiety and restore your happy self. Here is what this book will teach you:

Jenn’s Review:

Every so often, I go on book buying binges (read – I love finding free Kindle books on Amazon!), and I bought this particular little book several months ago, and sat down with it recently.

The author sets out valid arguments about meditation and its benefits in concise language that is easy to understand. He lays out a solid case in favor of why meditation is so good for you, and briefly talks about different ways to meditate.

However, where I got a little hung up (I’ve been meditation for years, but I don’t profess to know it all, by any means), is his suggested procedure for meditation. If I were a newbie to the idea of meditating, knowing myself, I would never end up on a cushion, getting down to the business of meditation, because… It would take me 3 hours to get through all the set up steps, I’d never find a place totally free of distraction to pull this off, and between starting the process and getting to the actual meditation, I’d have to tend to something else for my family.

In a nutshell, that part of the book, is a little overblown and over-complicated in my opinion (I’ve read and am reading, much better books on meditation and mindfulness where this area is concerned – reviews to come if they aren’t already done).

On the other hand, if you’re debating whether to begin a meditation practice, or whether meditation is right for you, this isn’t a bad book to start with, and the price makes it accessible to everyone (as of this writing, it is still free for both Kindle and audio versions).

Biohacking: A Beginners’ Guide to Successfully Employing Biohacks to Improve Your Health, Life & Wellbeing – Review

Book Review for BioHacking: A Beginner's Guide by Seth Laron - Personal Development/Nonfiction/Self Improvement

About the book:

Are you looking for a common sense approach to feeling healthier or reducing stress in your life? Then biohacking is for you.

Too many of us in North America today are battling some form of ill-health. Whether you are struggling with anxiety or your weight, you have probably tried it all—the latest fads and self-improvement books. But you probably have not tried “biohacking”.

”Self-trackers are pushing the limits of personal health.” Mark Moschel, Chief Technology Officer at Factor 75

“Biohacking” or the act of tracking your body’s statistics, such as heart rate, blood pressure and so on, is the latest and easiest form of self-improvement available. It has taken off with the advent of the various devices, but at its core it can be used even without such things. It is about common sense and listening to your body. In this book you will learn:

Preview:

  • #1 how to use the principles of biohacking to improve your mood
  • #2 how you can biohack your diet to be healthier and lose weight
  • #3 how meditation is one of the best forms of biohacking you can do for yourself.

Jenn’s Review:

This is another of those little books I picked up on a Kindle spree a few years ago, and dusted it off the other day while cleaning out some of my Kindle clutter. (I go on these huge binges of buying, and then… see my blog at Sage Wolfsong for more info on my battle with clutter of all kinds)

I’d heard of Bio Hacking before buying this book, but hadn’t really done much to understand what it was, or how it might be helpful. I could guess at it based on context (all the other “life hacks” out there), but some things get under my skin and pester me until I do something with them.

So, I sat down with this brief book (it’s less than 100 pages) to learn a bit about biohacking. 

Good stuff, really. The author lays out a clear, concise map of what biohacking is, why it’s useful and how to include it in your life. If you want to understand what changes you need to make and why those changes are significant, this is a great place to start – not terribly detailed or technical, a quick, light read with a powerful punch.

And an awesome value!
