Bring Value To Your Ideas And Have The Courage To Pursue Your Dreams

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(This press release may be reprinted in part or entirety)

I would like to send a copy of David Thomas Roberts’ new book Unemployable! How to be Successfully Unemployed Your Entire Life in consideration of an interview or review from you. David has been a serial entrepreneur his entire life and the thought of having someone else control his income, schedule, and vacation time terrifies him. In this book David shares a lifetime of entrepreneurial experiences, strategies and principles to show readers how to follow their calling and branch out on their own. David speaks from the heart about his successes and failures and what he learned from those experiences.

America was built on a free enterprise system – and this best-selling author, also known as The Renegade Capitalist™, refers to the term “unemployable” in a successful sense, as a means for people to gain the freedom to control their professional life.

David makes a dynamic guest who can easily engage an audience. Please read the following press release and let me know if I may schedule an interview, or forward a review copy of the book. In the event you might want to run this story, let us know and we’ll be happy to send you a jpg of the author and book cover for your use. Thank you.

Bring Value To Your Ideas And Have The Courage To Pursue Your Dreams

Houston, TX – This may be the best time in history to start a business. Best-selling author David Thomas Roberts, Renegade Capitalist™ and serial entrepreneur since age twenty-one, has created a guide for those who are no longer content to have someone else dictating their daily commute, their income, schedules and vacations. What does it really take for someone to jump off the employment treadmill and participate in the free enterprise system, unencumbered by traditionally accepted myths? Roberts lays out business strategies and principles in his book Unemployable! How to Be Successfully Unemployed Your Entire Life (Defiance Press and Publishing, LLC).

In Roberts’ quest to find new and innovative investments, the best business plan submitted through the Renegade Capitalist™ website (http://renegadecapitalist.com) will be awarded up to $25,000 in equity investment money. He is also available for speaking engagements and consulting services for new business owners.

Always challenging the status quo, Roberts has built a lifetime of success in defiance of accepted business norms which has led him to be dubbed the “Renegade Capitalist™.”
In college, Roberts became discouraged because no one was teaching him what he wanted to understand: how to become an entrepreneur. He then dropped out and within a year opened a multimillion air freight business with his brother. The downturn in the oil industry caught Roberts by surprise and eventually the business failed. Roberts took many valuable lessons from this experience.

Undaunted, Roberts launched another business which he later successfully sold. Roberts has built numerous successful businesses; he is the founder and CEO of Teligistics, a leading multi-million-dollar telecom technology management firm started with $1,000 on a folding card table in a closet. Now, acknowledging the need for more opportunities, classes and degree paths for aspiring entrepreneurs, Roberts has advised major universities and MBA programs on the creation of degree paths and curriculum for entrepreneurial studies.

Roberts has two best-selling political thrillers to his credit, Patriots of Treason (2012) and A State of Treason (2014). Inspired by his four children, he recognized the need for an unconventional business book to share his expertise. Roberts will soon release his fourth book, a continuation of the political thriller series, and is working on several more business books digging deeper into the principles of Unemployable!

Roberts lives with his wife of thirty-four years near Houston, Texas. He has four grown children and two grandchildren. For more information, please visit http://renegadecapitalist.com and http://davidthomasrobertsauthor.com

Conquer Change And Win: Learn How To Embrace Change To Live A Happier, More Fulfilled Life

Morristown, TN – Learn what 90% of Americans have no clue about. Be the last person standing in the room by knowing how change affects our emotions and feelings. Conquer Change and Win will show you how to control your reaction to those emotions and feelings that all change always causes. The result will be a happier and more fulfilled life. This information will give you a leg up on making more money and having less stress in your life.

Every one of us is constantly affected by change. Change never stops, and no matter if it’s positive change or not, our first reaction is usually fear. The truly successful people of the world have a good understanding of change and how to make it work to their advantage. In his latest book, Conquer Change and Win, best-selling author Ralph Masengill gives readers an easy-to-read, fun book about the serious subject of change.

In forty-plus years as a consultant, coach, advisor and public relations strategist, Masengill has observed that successful people share two characteristics. First, they are willing to take a calculated risk and endorse positive change on a regular basis. Secondly, they have learned how change affects their emotions and how to overcome the fear of change.

“I believe the happiest and most successful people do not necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have,” Masengill says. He urges readers to choose change. “It is the path to true happiness and business success. Understanding how change works can alter your life for the better and give you a solid advantage.”

An advisor, coach, marketing expert, business consultant and public relations strategist, Masengill understands how companies work from within. He has the wisdom of one who has made the journey of sustained success himself, leavened by an ethics-based philosophy of helping others and the community around him. Masengill’s life story is one of personal challenge, tragedy, and triumph. His professional career has been defined by great success in both the private and public sectors. His agency, Masengill Marketing Associates, has won over 850 national and regional advertising and marketing awards.

One of the original change agents in the United States, Masengill and his team have been observing change and showing business leaders that embracing and understanding positive change is the sure route to effective quality improvement and substantial profit enhancement for decades. This extensive experience formed the basis for Conquer Change and Win, his second book.

A graduate of the University of Tennessee, Masengill’s postgraduate work includes the Dr. W. Edwards Deming course on quality and quality management. He and his wife Dianne live near the Great Smoky Mountains in East Tennessee. They have four grown children, two dogs and a cat. Masengill enjoys woodworking, oil painting, sailing and helping with his favorite charities in his spare time.

Turning Personal Tragedy Into Inspiration For Others To Learn How To Find Healing And Peace

Fort Lauderdale, FL – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently reported the incidence of suicide is up by 24% since 1999.
A mother of five and grandmother to nine, married and divorced four times, and a clinical social worker in private practice for nearly forty years, Joan Childs thought she had experienced or seen it all. But nothing could have prepared her for the death of her beautiful daughter, Pam. A brilliant psychotherapist, Pam battled constantly with Bipolar Disorder until one fateful summer day in 1998 when her demons overwhelmed her, she plunged to her death from a 15th floor balcony. Even with their combined credentials and medical knowledge, Pam still could not be saved. She became the driving force behind Joan Childs’ latest book, Why Did She Jump? (HCI Books), and brings hope to anyone struggling with grief from the loss of a child or loved one to mental illness, that there is hope for better tomorrows.

Fierce and tender, Joan’s compelling storytelling gives us an insightful yet sensitive look at her daughter’s life dealing with Bipolar Disorder. Peeling back the layers of pain and despair, Joan takes readers through the dark days of grief and guilt she felt both as a mother and as a frustrated professional who doesn’t understand why more hasn’t been done about this disease. With brutal honesty, Joan recalls how the lives of her entire family became entwined with her daughter’s illness as they watched her sink deeper into a place where no one could reach her. It is a powerful story of courage, hope, acceptance, and finally, forgiveness. Now, Joan reflects on her daughter’s many accomplishments, in spite of her illness, and sees them as Pam’s legacy to the world.

In an earlier book, The Myth of the Maiden: On Being a Woman, the author looks at the evolution of women from helpless maidens to dragon-slayers. Both books are excellent resources for personal growth and development after life changes and loss. In spite of many personal losses, Joan ‘walks the talk;’ she lives life to its fullest and maintains a level of energy and passion at age 76 that would put a 40-year-old to shame! A strikingly beautiful woman and energetic and inspiring speaker, Joan ignites the passion in others to find their own path to courage, healing and hope after the heartbreak and struggle of losing a loved one/child to suicide or any other cause of death.

Joan’s television series, Solutions, was dedicated to the memory of her daughter Pamela, and offered information and resources for anyone suffering from mental and mood disorders. She provides lectures, workshops and seminars dedicated to her profession of mental health and women’s issues and is a spokesperson for bipolar disorder and suicide.

About the Author:

Joan E. Childs, LCSW, has been in private practice since 1978. She is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in couples therapy, known as Encounter-Centered Couples Therapy. An expert in Codependency, Inner Child Work, Original Pain Work, and Second Stage Recovery, she is certified in many modalities including a master practitioner in NLP, (neuro-linguistic programming), a master practitioner in EMDR, (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing), Supervision, Hypnosis, PAIRS, (Practical Applications for Intimate Relationship Skills), and is a Certified Grief Counselor.

Women And Heart Disease: Expert Advice To Protect Against The #1 Killer Of Women In The U.S.

Mission Viejo, CA ― Silence is one of the most deadly aspects of women’s heart disease, and cardiologist Dr. Jacqueline Eubany (Dr. Jackie) makes that point in her concise, accessible book, Women and Heart Disease: The Real Story:

Angie is a 46-year-old divorced mother of two school-aged children. One morning she was just not feeling her usual self….Undaunted, the busy mother went about her usual morning routine…. Angie’s coworkers noticed that she looked unusually pale and advised her to go to the doctor’s office. Hard-working Angie declined….As the sole financial provider for her family, the young woman felt she could not afford to take time off. There were too many outstanding bills and her children needed her. Angie hoped she would soon start to feel better.

Tragically, she did not. Days later she made it to the emergency room, but her heart was permanently damaged. Through anecdotes and friendly, jargon-free advice, Dr. Jackie tells readers how to reduce their risk by up to 80%, how to recognize a heart attack earlier, and how to make the healthiest choices for your heart and your loved ones.

Heart disease remains the number one killer of women in the United States, killing more women than breast and lung cancer combined. Dr Jacqueline Eubany is a board-certified cardiologist and electrophysiologist, currently practicing in Orange County, California. She attended the University of California Riverside for her undergraduate studies, followed by Boston University School of Medicine. She joined the United States Navy to complete her medical training, and served for twelve years.

She was inducted as a fellow in the prestigious American College of Cardiology, and in the Heart Rhythm Society. An active member in other distinguished societies, Dr. Eubany also serves on several advisory boards related to heart disease. She is a popular guest speaker for heart health events because of her accessible, articulate style.

Dr. Eubany is an avid traveler, visiting more than 50 countries, and enjoys scuba diving, horseback riding, biking and reading about world history. For more information, please visit: www.womenandheartdiseasebook.com

Forget About The Latest Fashions, Celebrities Are Now Inspiring Readers With Their Cancer Stories

  

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(This press release may be reprinted in part or entirety)

I would like to send a complimentary copy of one of the books in the Reimagining Cancer series by doctors Mark Boguski and Michele Berman, in consideration of an interview or review from you.

Appealing to our celebrity-driven society, doctors Boguski and Berman are helping to increase cancer awareness. Both Reimagining Men’s Cancers and Reimagining Women’s Cancers provide critical medical information through personal accounts of celebrities coping with cancer that are not only inspiring, they can save lives. Connecting with an admired celebrity figure over something as life-altering as cancer can trigger readers to take preventative action for their health, as well as inspire hope in a patient already diagnosed. Since someone is diagnosed with cancer every 23 seconds in America (a rate that’s expected to rise by 2 million new patients in 2016), ensuring the delivery of accurate information is vital!

Please read the press release below and let me know if I may schedule an interview with either author, or forward a review copy of one of their books. If you would like to run this story we’d be happy to send you .jpgs of the doctors and the book covers. Thank you.

Forget About The Latest Fashions, Celebrities Are Now Inspiring Readers With Their Cancer Stories

“The illnesses of famous patients receive enormous attention from the media and serve as touchstones for patients and families dealing with similar conditions… By taking a series of famous cancer cases and looking at the actual information being received by the public, Doctors Boguski and Berman are furthering the important process of ascertaining exactly what these episodes teach us.”

–– Barron H. Lerner, MD, PhD, Professor of Medicine and Public Health, New York Presbyterian, The University Hospital of Columbia and Cornell, Author of When Illness Goes Public: Celebrity Patients and How We Look at Medicine

“Thank you for sharing the relationship between celebrity health conditions, consumer Internet search behavior, and its potential for developing teachable moments for the advancement of public health.”

–– Nan M. Laird, PhD, Harvey V. Fineberg, Professor of Biostatistics, Harvard School of Public Health

Boston, MA – Cancer doesn’t have to be a death sentence. The get-out-of-cancer-free card? Prevention through information. The recent World Cancer Report from the World Health Organization states that about half of all cancers are preventable and can be avoided if current medical knowledge is better delivered. From People magazine, with a readership of 43 million to Internet sites like JustJared.com with over 80 million monthly views, celebrity information not only sells, it has the ability to educate about important issues––including cancer.

Whether readers are currently patients or consumers wanting to be better informed, Reimagining Men’s Cancers and Reimagining Women’s Cancers exemplify that information is empowering. Reading about a famous person coping with cancer can not only be inspiring, it can save a life. In the first two books of their Reimagining Cancer series, doctors Mark Boguski and Michele Berman team with writer David Tabatsky to provide celebrity stories focusing on the most common cancers that affect men and women today.

To provide readers with critical information to help them manage, cope, and recover from illness, these books are written in an easy-to-read style and format. Each chapter begins with basic anatomy concerning each cancer, followed by an overview of how we view a particular cancer today. The chapters flow easily into an explanation of signs, symptoms, diagnoses, scientific information and guidelines, and end on comprehensive surveys for treatments and prevention. Woven throughout are stories, both medical and anecdotal, from celebrities such as Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Lance Armstrong, Angelina Jolie, Joan Lunden, Melissa Etheridge, Sandra Lee, Rita Wilson, Christina Applegate, and Suzanne Somers.

Every 23 seconds someone in America is diagnosed with cancer. Education is the key, and by using clear and concise information by means of celebrity stories, these books can teach countless readers who might otherwise not pay attention to an epidemic likely to affect them or a loved one.

About The Authors

Dr. Mark Boguski and Dr. Michele Berman are a husband and wife team of physicians who have trained and taught at some of the top medical schools and research institutions in the country, including Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Washington University in St. Louis, the National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health. Celebrity Diagnosis, the website they founded and launched in 2009, is now featured as an integral part of the American Association for Cancer Research website and combines celebrity health conditions with up-to-date medical information on numerous cancers. Through their website, Dr. Boguski and Dr. Berman have created numerous “teachable moments in medicine,” giving the medical facts behind the headlines. Their aim is to increase health awareness and medical knowledge for patient empowerment and professional development, and raise the likelihood of consideration for early detection and preventative behavior.

For a patient facing cancer, or for a medical student overwhelmed by data, medical information alone can be quite daunting and often misses out on the human factor that is so vital in prevention and healing. David Tabatsky, through his writing and editing, has added an essential element to the book through his interviews with patients and cancer support groups, as well as by making the book easy to read.

The Essence of Resilience: Stories of Triumph Over Trauma
By Tanya Lauer and Kathleen Parrish

Tucson, AZ – When trauma strikes in the lives of unsuspecting victims, it leaves wounds that run deep. If not properly tended to, these events can leave scars that affect the way a person relates to themselves and everything around them. “It is said that every scar tells a story,” Lauer and Parrish write in The Essence of Resilience: Stories of Triumph Over Trauma (HCI – ISBN: 9780757319419 October 2016 — $14.95), but often those stories are kept locked away in silence by the victims who are struck voiceless and alone in the dark shadow of their pasts. By keeping their stories buried within themselves, often trauma victims distort the reality of their trauma and devolve to self-blame, and very often cope with drugs, alcohol, and other unhealthy and dangerous behavior.

But everyone is capable of harnessing resilience – the part of ourselves that refuses to surrender or die. Everyone is capable of reclaiming themselves and taking control of the present by learning to cope with their pasts, and in The Essence of Resilience, fourteen trauma survivors demonstrate the miraculous healing power of storytelling to work through finding the “gift in their wound.” Stories include:

• A young girl bullied by her classmates, losing her definition of herself in their hurtful words.
• An adopted daughter, searching for a sense of belonging through substance abuse.
• A rape victim regaining her voice through therapy animals.
• A Marine with a history of child abuse learning the power of sharing and facing his past.

Tanya Lauer and Kathleen Parrish are professional counselors who specialize in those who have suffered a traumatic experience, which they define as “any event that violates your sense of safety and wellbeing, or shatters your integrity or sense of wholeness.” With a combined 40 years of experience helping trauma survivors cope, Lauer and Parrish share their tried-and-true arsenal of tools including Relationships, Trust, Travel, Compassion, Gratitude, Animals, Nature, Humor and Spirituality that helps victims reclaim their voice in this gripping and powerful book.

Join these survivors as they face their pasts head-on, sharing their deepest and darkest moments to open themselves up to the ability to heal. These stories, while they may be painful, are also published to be motivational to those who may be suffering silently on their own. These tributes to each individual’s past reveal an inspiring look into the miracle that is human resilience, and allows us to bear witness to these brave survivors in their triumph over trauma.

About the Authors

Tanya Lauer and Kathleen Parrish are Licensed Professional Counselors with over 40 years combined experience providing counseling and trauma intervention services. They are affiliated with Cottonwood Tucson, an internationally renowned residential treatment program for co-occurring disorders in Tucson, Arizona. They are frequent presenters at professional conferences in the United States and in Europe.
