December Featured Title: Joy of Financial Planning

By Jason J. Howell, CFP

Can you still achieve the American Dream?

You don’t have a pension. Social Security and Medicare may not be there when you need them. You pay much more for housing, even adjusted for inflation, than your parents ever did.  College education prices have skyrocketed. You may have gone to a good school and you may make good money (even saved some of it), but this is not the life you imagined. You are stressed, you are too “busy,” and most days, you feel really tired.

What happened to your big dreams?

Blending his career in finance and background in politics, Jason Howell has outlined 7 financial strategies to help you reclaim your American Dream. Joy of Financial Planning shows this generation how to overcome the challenges of a highly competitive, politicized economy.  The good news is you can still make an impact on a world desperately in need of your financial success.

By Scott Bloom

They say you can’t judge a book by its cover but that is no longer true. In this hilarious book of faux book covers, Scott upends the traditional content of the personal and professional development genres by presenting an unexpected viewpoint on the same. You’ll learn that you CAN judge a book by its cover, without judgement. You’ll also learn from covers like The Power of Later, Perfecting Perfectionism, and How to Increase Your Profits by Making More Money. Imagine that!

Thumb through the pages and prepare to see more of the conventional go sideways. Bloom has created a ridiculously funny collection of authentic-looking covers and content that aren’t real. Or are they? That depends on your point of view. 

At the least, they are thought provoking. You’ll wonder whether you’ve been living your best life. And at the most, you’ll chuckle at the absurdity of it all.

You CAN Judge a Book by Its Cover is a delightful parody of truths that allows us to laugh at ourselves simply by reading the covers. Their beauty is truly skin-deep and their wisdom is entirely on the surface. All the answers to life’s challenges are revealed in this one book of book covers. Hmmm.

Without Charlie and Doug, Lilly and Buck, Molly, Jenny, Ryan, Skylar, and the rest of Shamrock working together as a team, can Storm even make it to the track, much less the finish line?

Don Cassidy is an award-winning Christmas decorating enthusiast living in hot, sunny Florida. When he and his family move to Maine, Don dreams of finally seeing his holiday display amidst the falling snow for the first time. Unfortunately, he has moved across the street from local busybody Muriel Michaud, a retired teacher who loves to spy on the comings and goings of the folks in their fast-changing neighborhood.

When Don begins to create an elaborate Christmas display in September, it immediately becomes a focus for all of Muriel’s pent-up frustrations, and she starts a campaign to shut the display down, dragging her reluctant husband into the fray with her.

And, most importantly, will their battle further divide the community, or will the residents band together to find friendship and, perhaps, love, in the midst of neighborly dysfunction?

The House on Christmas Street dazzles us with the lights and spectacle of Christmastime – while also reminding us that the holiday season is not just about what we see with our eyes, but, more importantly, what we see with our hearts.

Memoir and Biographies




Beyond The Finish

Diagnosed with cerebral palsy as a child, Kyle Pease had grown up supporting his athlete brothers Brent and Evan from the sidelines. While his condition limited his ability to play sports, it didn’t dampen Kyle’s passion for them, nor did it stop the Pease family from including Kyle in various excursions. From rolling his wheelchair up Bridal Veil Falls in Yosemite National Park to zipping down Colorado snow slopes, there was never a dull moment with the Pease brothers. Where there was a wheel, there was a way to adventure.

Upon witnessing Brent complete his first IRONMAN competition, Kyle asked Brent a life-changing question: Can people in wheelchairs do IRONMAN? Brent never hesitated with his response. The answer was a resounding yes. Learning from others and through their own hard work, the brothers competed in IRONMAN competitions around the country and were ultimately awarded the opportunity to participate in the IRONMAN World Championship in Kona, Hawaii. In this memoir that interweaves both their perspectives, Kyle and Brent recount the experiences that shaped the strength, tenacity, and undying bond that has resonated between them since childhood.

After the Cut: How to Prepare For and Recover From Cosmetic Plastic Surgery

She describes the realities of plastic surgery that many people do not know. The book goes on to teach you how to prepare your mind, body, and home for surgery; those best prepared for surgery have better results. A typical “surgery day” is described to the reader, so they know what to expect.

Once out of surgery, and recovery begins, the reader is given a detailed guide of the author’s innovative method on how exactly to recover after any cosmetic plastic surgery procedure. Some typical procedures she discusses are: liposuction, tummy tucks, breast augmentation, body lifts, face lifts, buttock lifts, and more. Her method will teach you how to prevent complications, reduce swelling, increase range of motion, decrease pain, increase sensation, decrease scar tissue, and ultimately maximize the results and appearance after cosmetic plastic surgery.

Like any surgery, plastic surgery should be made with serious consideration and not entered into lightly. The choice to have plastic surgery is a personal one that will have a significant impact on a person’s future. The steps illustrated in this book empower the patient to play a substantial role in their recovery. With this knowledge, the patient can feel confident about making one of the most personal decisions of their life.





Middle-class Millionaire: Surprisingly Simple Strategies to Grow and Enjoy Your Wealth

Defined as a household that earns a yearly income that hits above the poverty line but falls shy of the upper class, people in the middle class come from all walks of life, hold various types of jobs, and lead vastly different lives.

By living within their means, saving well, and spending wisely, members of the middle class can soon be part of a group that is growing by the day: the middle-class millionaire.

In this informative and comprehensive guide, Clark Kendall, CEO and founder of the successful investment management firm Kendall Capital, shows you just how to secure your financial future.

The Gap

By Douglas Vigliotti

Meet the Gap: the little space between what you know and don’t know. It’s the thing sitting between you and what you want; it’s a small thing that amounts to everything. Are you stuck in your career, relationships, education, or business? Maybe you’re frozen by the same old habits and opinions or trapped in the story you’ve been telling yourself for the last 20, 30, or 50 years? That’s okay. It’s normal. We only know what we know. We’re all stuck on something.

In a world overflowing with competing information, knowing who to turn to, what to watch out for, and what to focus on has never been more difficult.
The Gap will help you turn obstacles into opportunities by identifying hidden forces and blind spots that prevent you from achieving your goals. Drawing on real world examples, Douglas Vigliotti empowers readers with thought-provoking questions and simple strategies to cut through the noise of the information age, challenging you to look at the world from a whole new perspective.

The Desert – A Dirtbag Climbing Book

By Luke Mehall

The Desert is Luke Mehall’s fifth and final offering in his series of dirtbag climbing books. The book begins with Mehall’s first trip to The Desert, a visit to Indian Creek in 1999, and chronicles nearly two decades of experience. Over time, the author grows from thinking that the red rock desert of the Colorado Plateau is just another stop along the way, to finding himself more and more at home there. Ultimately, the author’s passion for first ascents with his best friends fuels his desire to get to know the area in an intimate way. At the same time that this transformation occurs, the Bears Ears National Monument is created by the Obama administration and then ultimately dismantled by the Trump administration. While the final decision by the courts is awaited, Mehall contemplates the importance of public lands for the soul of America. He also pulls no punches with his thoughts on Trump’s decision. The Desert is a definitive, independently published account of a dirtbag climber searching for love, passion, fresh air, and an escape from the electronic hyper connectedness of the modern world.
