DESCRIPTION:

“Misdirection” is a step-by-step playbook for CEOs, CFOs, business owners and HR executives that will help you identify and mitigate what can be the largest cause of negative operating leverage in your business.

No matter your industry, company size, or location, this book will provide the tools to help you uncover what every other consultant has ignored. These expenses, hiding in every business, are disguised as liabilities but can become a powerful asset. You can look at this book as a self defense, judo of sorts, to protect your company from unnecessarily overspending on what should be a manageable expense. Not only do we address cost but we discuss employee morale, improving company culture and how all these topics are tied together.

Many times I see companies sacrifice the important for the urgent. This causes businesses to neglect what they believe they cannot change and instead focus on what they know they can.

This blind spot on your P&L has been largely overlooked because you have been trained to overlook it. In fact, most business owners, C-suite executives, mayors, governors, and union heads have been trained to delegate this expense to non-P&L managers. This is because they’ve always thought there was no way to control this expense. In reality, they have been kept in the dark by the misaligned incentives in this multi-billion dollar industry.

Warren Buffet once famously called GM “a health and benefits company with an auto company attached.” It has also been reported that Starbucks spends more on health insurance for its employees than it does on coffee beans. For most companies, health insurance is the second or third largest expense after payroll and raw materials.

This puts you in the healthcare business! I have just one question for you–how is your healthcare business doing? If my asking that question made you feel uncomfortable, that’s ok–it’s just the Cartel’s programming taking over.

When organizations spend millions of dollars in a belief system, they try very hard to hold on to it. In this book, you will learn:

– The financial hedging strategy that will allow your company to arbitrage risk of $40,000 – $1M, down to less than $5,000.
– Who is the Cartel and how they have been paid billions by ripping off millions of people and business just like yours.
– Why your company unnecessarily overpays for what should be a manageable expense.
– How to turn a rented liability into an asset you own.
– Why healthcare supply chain price gouging causes the quality of your health plan to diminish, and what you can do about it.
– How a few simple steps can increase your company’s EBITDA each and every year.
– The fastest way to recapture a decade or more of losses – that you have already experienced.
– Recognize the “learned helplessness” that has gradually crept into your awareness over the last 10+ years.
– How price and cost are different and how we can use this to make your health plan better.

This book is a plainly written, common sense guide to why you overpay for healthcare at work and how to give your employees the best health care plan they have ever had. Doing this will give you a literal competitive edge in your market, just be sure to read this before your competitor does.

DESCRIPTION:

Death comes with the Harvest. Salvation lies in the Valley of the Moon, along the path of Martial Magic.

Xan always assumed he would be apprenticed to an herbalist in the sleepy village of Mogu and follow the Path of Peace, just like his father before him. It is the way–has always been the way.

But when his village is sacked by a raiding force of vicious monsters, corrupted by dark Qi, life as Xan knows it is over. Family dead. Villagers slain. His home burnt to ash.

Now, all Xan wants to do is figure out why his people were targeted and get revenge on the merciless creatures sweeping across the continent like a plague of locusts. Spreading their vile corruption. His only hope at salvation and retribution lies in the Valley of the Moon, at the fabled Xing Yi School of Martial Magic. If he is to succeed, he will need to learn to cultivate the energy of the elements, hone his martial and crafting skills, and complete the school’s harsh tests and trials. It will take more than a passing grade at this school, though, and not all that fail survive the experience…

“A thrilling blend of mystical martial arts, crafting, and cultivation!” –eden Hudson, Bestselling Author of the Path of the Thunderbird, Rogue Dungeon, and Jubal Van Zandt series

DESCRIPTION:

Welcome to Montrose Paranormal Academy–where the Three Societies rule all.

There are three rules to survive at the academy long enough to find my brother.

  1. Don’t show anyone the cryptic postcard my brother sent me from Europe.
  2. Don’t let anyone know the truth, that I can see angels and demons
  3. Don’t fall for a leader of one of the Three Societies, even if there are two dreamy ones after me

It won’t end well.

Three years ago my brother went missing in Europe without a word. Until the strange postcard I got six months ago.

So I enrolled at Montrose to find him. I just have to play nice with the Three Societies long enough to dig up some dirt, before they figure out who I really am.

Let them think my brother is the Seer. Because if any of these power-hungry secret societies find out the truth, they’ll never let me go.

For now, I’ll need to stay under the radar. But that’s hard to do when two rival society presidents take an interest in me.

Can I find my brother and master my surprise powers without getting caught?

I guess we’re about to find out.
