In the beginning, a hardworking group of Cistercian monks ran out of ink for their office equipment. When they saw the high price of replacement cartridges, they decided to launch their own company, selling ink and toner cartridges online at competitive prices. Soon, they caught the attention of two marketing and management consultants who-inspired by the monks' dedication to charitable work-formed MonkHelper Marketing, Inc. to help promote and ultimately run the business. This is the gospel according to LASERMONKS Based upon the centuries-old principles of St. Benedict, LaserMonks' unique approach to business has set a new standard for socially conscious companies. Their unusual and fascinating story is a true testament to the concept of “good work.” By combining simple customer courtesy, savvy marketing techniques, and strong community service, you'll learn how to stand out from the competition-and reap the rewards. You don't have to be a saint-or a monk-to benefit from these five building blocks to success. LaserMonks will show you how to: 1. Create a market space by reshaping the reasons why consumers purchase. 2. Provide excellent customer care by following the Rule of St. Benedict (courtesy and hospitality for all). 3. Find and capitalize on your unique strengths. (LaserMonks set themselves apart by making charity-giving an integral part of their business.) 4. Streamline operations. 5. Manage your success by balancing profits and giving, keeping cutomers happy and staying true to your mission. Filled with step-by-step advice, insider strategies, and uplifting spiritual guidance, this is so much more than a business book. It is a complete way of life-for you, your company, and your community. A way to overcome the challenges of a crowded marketplace and build strong relationships with your customers. A way to serve everybody's needs…personally, professionally, and profitably. For your business, it's a revelation. For your soul, a blessing.

Your classes are done, your certificate is in hand, and your teacher says you are ready. Congratulations, you are on the cusp of starting your spiritual business! Now what? Or perhaps you already have a spiritual business that needs help attracting clients. Are you one of the many who are really good at a particular healing modality or other type of spiritual business but has no business training? No worries, you can still learn how to run a spiritual business successfully. Grow Your Spiritual Business offers specific and proven steps for the readers to follow to ensure their spiritual enterprises take off from the start without losing spiritual focus and integrity. The term "Spiritual Business” will appeal to a wide audience as the authors make it clear that a business doesn’t need to be offering a spiritual modality to be considered spiritual. Spirituality comes from intent, the intent to offer a service with core spiritual beliefs. A lawyer or accountant’s business can be as spiritual as an angel reader or massage therapist. As the statistics on the cover page show, the number of small businesses in the United States alone is up from 17.6 billion in 2002 to 28 billion in 2013. With 49 percent of the population having had spiritual experiences, the number of small businesses having a spiritual focus, or at least spiritual owners with such a focus, continues to grow. Although the statistics are for the US, this growth in spiritual focus can be seen worldwide. A strong and profitable business does not mean throwing out your spirituality. Grow Your Spiritual Business will help the readers evaluate or re-evaluate their business, prices, marketing, etc., and helps them take a professional approach while maintaining their spiritual outlook. Both Lisa and Cindy come from traditional business backgrounds, which allow them to offer practical, grounded advice without compromising the spiritual values that are important to any spiritual business. Lisa has a strong 15-year background in information technology and marketing and sales, driving multi-millions of dollars in revenue for corporations around the world, and now runs her own successful spiritual business as an author, speaker and seminar leader teaching people internationally how to develop their intuition. Cindy has run a successful practice as a psychic and spiritual teacher for over twenty years, more recently as an author, and before that she managed a real estate office, was an independent contractor in real estate sales and a real estate appraiser. Together, Lisa and Cindy offer over 35 years of marketing experience in a way that fits the reader’s spiritually focused business. Grow Your Spiritual Business is designed in a way that the readers can either start at the beginning or just read the section they need help on right now. Both Lisa and Cindy offer different but complementary views and advice with examples from real life and sidebars containing Spiritual Business Keys to Success. The readers receive benefits from two experienced and successful spiritual businesswomen who mentor throughout the start, or advancement, of the readers’ own spiritual enterprises! Based on Lisa’s core marketing concept of "Attract, Resonate, Synergize,” the best way to get the most from Spiritual Business is through using the Table of Contents. Some of the readers will already have a spiritual business up and running and only want help in certain areas. Although the writers feel those business owners may benefit from re-evaluating their business and starting at Chapter 1, the more seasoned entrepreneur can also look at the Table of Contents and go straight to where they feel they need the most help. Other readers will be just starting out and the writers recommend those new proprietors read Grow Your Spiritual Business from the beginning. Starting with Chapter 1 will save the readers a lot of time and money! As Lisa will demonstrate, it is the business owner’s attitude that makes a business spiritual, yet knowing his or her passion and business identity is key in understanding how to market successfully and so that is where Spiritual Business gets started. Not all readers will feel every topic in Grow Your Spiritual Business will apply to their business right away. The readers are encouraged to highlight suggestions they wish to try later, as their business grows, making Spiritual Business a resource they will hold on to and recommend to others for years to come. The readers are not urged to agree with every piece of advice. They will find that even Lisa and Cindy do things differently, which is another strength of Grow Your Spiritual Business, it offers two different perspectives on what works for developing a spiritual business. Starting in Chapter 2, in order for the readers to know if it is Lisa or Cindy speaking, they just look at the typeface. Grow Your Spiritual Business focuses on today’s marketing options while being careful not to date the book by only sparingly using current Internet references like Facebook or Wordpress. The Appendix will offer lists of 2015 Internet options, where in the body of the text generic terms like social networking sites or on-line schedulers are used when possible. Lisa has a strong 30+ year background in technology and is up on new opportunities the Internet provides for a spiritual business while Cindy offers her 20+ years of experience in a spiritual business to balance the technical suggestions with some time trusted techniques and less technical recommendations for those businesses who are not ready to embrace some of the newer technologies. Together they offer the readers a balanced approach to marketing their businesses without losing the spiritual focus found at the core of the readers’ spiritual focus.

PATTERNS ACROSS CULTURES is a rhetorically organized reader driven by the principle that as the world gets smaller, students should be exposed to a wide variety of cultural perspectives--both from within the United States and from other countries. Many of the reading selections in the text are by writers who have never been anthologized, providing an invigorating alternative to traditional readers. Post-reading features for each selection, including questions on author's "Meaning," "Technique," and "Language," help students examine how the selection utilizes both the primary mode and other modes as well; calls out key vocabulary terms; highlights thematic connections between selections; and provides prompts for both personal and critical writing. To assist those instructors who prefer a thematic framework for discussing the selections, a thematic Table of Contents and Thematic Links questions connecting each essay with one or more others on similar themes will provide inspiration for theme-based discussions and writing assignments.

Marketing visionary Martin Lindstrom has been on the front lines of the branding wars for over twenty years. In Brandwashed, he turns the spotlight on his own industry, drawing on all he has witnessed behind closed doors, exposing for the first time the full extent of the psychological tricks and traps that companies devise to win our hard-earned money. Brandwashed is a shocking insider's look at how today's global giants conspire to obscure the truth and manipulate our minds, all in service of persuading us to buy. Lindstrom reveals eye opening details such as : how advertisers and marketers target children at an alarmingly young age - starting when they are still in the womb, what heterosexual men really think about when they see sexually provocative advertising, how marketers and retailers stoke the flames of public panic and capitalize on paranoia over diseases, extreme weather events, and food contamination scares, the first ever evidence proving how addicted we all are to our iPhones and our Blackberrys, and how certain companies, like the maker of one popular lip balm, purposely adjust their formulas in order to make their products chemically addictive, and much, much more.

How maverick companies have passed up the growth treadmill — and focused on greatness instead. It’s an axiom of business that great companies grow their revenues and profits year after year. Yet quietly, under the radar, a small number of companies have rejected the pressure of endless growth to focus on more satisfying business goals. Goals like being great at what they do, creating a great place to work, providing great customer service, making great contributions to their communities, and finding great ways to lead their lives. In Small Giants, veteran journalist Bo Burlingham takes us deep inside fourteen remarkable companies that have chosen to march to their own drummer. They include Anchor Brewing, the original microbrewer; CitiStorage Inc., the premier independent records-storage business; Clif Bar & Co., maker of organic energy bars and other nutrition foods; Righteous Babe Records, the record company founded by singer-songwriter Ani DiFranco; Union Square Hospitality Group, the company of restaurateur Danny Meyer; and Zingerman’s Community of Businesses, including the world-famous Zingerman’s Deli of Ann Arbor. Burlingham shows how the leaders of these small giants recognized the full range of choices they had about the type of company they could create. And he shows how we can all benefit by questioning the usual definitions of business success. In his new afterward, Burlingham reflects on the similarities and learning lessons from the small giants he covers in the book. From the Hardcover edition.

How much do we know about why we buy? What truly influences our decisions in today’s message-cluttered world? An eye-grabbing advertisement, a catchy slogan, an infectious jingle? Or do our buying decisions take place below the surface, so deep within our subconscious minds, we’re barely aware of them? In BUYOLOGY, Lindstrom presents the astonishing findings from his groundbreaking, three-year, seven-million-dollar neuromarketing study, a cutting-edge experiment that peered inside the brains of 2,000 volunteers from all around the world as they encountered various ads, logos, commercials, brands, and products. His startling results shatter much of what we have long believed about what seduces our interest and drives us to buy. Among the questions he explores: Does sex actually sell? To what extent do people in skimpy clothing and suggestive poses persuade us to buy products? Despite government bans, does subliminal advertising still surround us – from bars to highway billboards to supermarket shelves? Can “Cool” brands, like iPods, trigger our mating instincts? Can other senses – smell, touch, and sound - be so powerful as to physically arouse us when we see a product? Do companies copy from the world of religion and create rituals – like drinking a Corona with a lime – to capture our hard-earned dollars? Filled with entertaining inside stories about how we respond to such well-known brands as Marlboro, Nokia, Calvin Klein, Ford, and American Idol, BUYOLOGY is a fascinating and shocking journey into the mind of today’s consumer that will captivate anyone who’s been seduced – or turned off – by marketers’ relentless attempts to win our loyalty, our money, and our minds.

Just as World War II called an earlier generation to greatness, so the climate crisis is calling today's rising youth to action: to create a better future. In UNSTOPPABLE, Bill Nye crystallizes and expands the message for which he is best known and beloved. That message is that with a combination of optimism and scientific curiosity, all obstacles become opportunities, and the possibilities of our world become limitless. With a scientist's thirst for knowledge and an engineer's vision of what can be, Bill Nye sees today's environmental issues not as insurmountable, depressing problems but as chances for our society to rise to the challenge and create a cleaner, healthier, smarter world. We need not accept that transportation consumes half our energy, and that two-thirds of the energy you put into your car is immediately thrown away out the tailpipe. We need not accept that dangerous emissions are the price we must pay for a vibrant economy and a comfortable life. Above all, we need not accept that we will leave our children a planet that is dirty, overheated, and depleted of resources. As Bill shares his vision, he debunks some of the most persistent myths and misunderstandings about global warming. When you are done reading, you'll be enlightened and empowered. Chances are, you'll be smiling, too, ready to join Bill and change the world. In Unstoppable: Harnessing Science to Change the World, the New York Times bestselling author of Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation and former host of "Bill Nye the Science Guy" issues a new challenge to today's generation: to make a cleaner, more efficient, and happier world. Praise for UNDENIABLE: "With his charming, breezy, narrative style, Bill empowers the reader to see the natural world as it is, not as some would wish it to be. He does it right. And, as I expected, he does it best." -Neil deGrasse Tyson, Ph.D, host of COSMOS "Bill Nye, 'the Science Guy,' has become a veritable cultural icon....[T]he title of his new book on evolution...[is] 'Undeniable,' because, yes, there are many Americans who still deny what Darwin and other scientists long ago proved." -Frank Bruni, The New York Times "With a jaunty bow tie and boyish enthusiasm, Bill Nye the Science Guy has spent decades decoding scientific topics, from germs to volcanoes, for television audiences....In his new book, Nye delights in how [evolution] helps to unlock the mysteries of everything from bumblebees to human origins to our place in the universe." -National Geographic "When it comes to Bill Nye, 'Science Guy' doesn't even begin to cover it. When he's not being summoned to act as a voice of reason for news outlets or leading meetings as CEO of the Planetary Society, he is living the life of a best-selling author....His recently published book, 'Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation,' enlightens readers while using a conversational, educational tone. After all, it's his ability to break down even the most complicated topics into bite-size pieces that made him such a hit on his '90s children's show 'Bill Nye, the Science Guy.'" -The Boston Globe "Mr. Nye writes briskly and accessibly...[and] makes an eloquent case for evolution."-The Wall Street Journal "Because [Bill Nye is] a scientist, he has no doubts that the 'deniers' of evolution are flat wrong. And because he's a performer, his book is fun to read and easy to absorb." -The Washington Post "Ignite your inner scientist when Nye, known for delivering geeky intel with clarity and charm, takes on one of society's most hotly debated topics (yes, still)." -Time Out New York
