Authentic Leadership for Professionals and Small Business Owners is for people who have struggled to make a success of themselves, yet don't feel successful.

It is intended for medical offices, law offices, dental offices, veterinary clinics, CPAs, beauty boutiques, consultants, psychologists, chiropractors, architects - any service-oriented business where the owner/professional is the primary revenue producer and also the organizational structure. The fundamental questions addressed are, "Now that you have worked so hard to make your business a success, are you truly happy? If not, how did you get yourself in this mess? Where did you lose your authentic self in the process? And what can you do about it?"

This volume also features Cappy Ricks, the protagonist of many Kyne stories.

Killing the Market - Legendary Investor Robert W. Wilson (Paperback): Roemer McPhee Killing the Market - Legendary Investor Robert W. Wilson (Paperback)
Roemer McPhee
R280 Discovery Miles 2 800 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Robert W. Wilson is the greatest investor of all time, on the only criterion that counts: percentage return on capital. What you make with what you have, what you started out with. Wilson would be the first to point out that there are investors richer than himself; but on a percentage-return basis, he is unmatched, and untouched. He received $15,000 from his mother in 1958, and he ran this stake to the fabulous sum of $230 million, by 1986. With assistance he himself sought out, he then nearly quadrupled his net worth to $800 million, by the year 2000. This return, after taxes no less, is more than 50,000 to one. More than 5,000,000 percent. Wilson did it in about forty years, without partners. How? How, possibly? This book, "Killing the Market," tries to find, or at least get close to, an answer. Robert Wilson quit the investing business in 1986, because he had "lost his touch," as he said. The most productive of men, the hardest working of men, he started to move into philanthropy. Eventually he became just about the most important philanthropist in the United States. Of the $800 million he accumulated, he had given away fully $700 million of it at the time of his death, in 2013 (by his own hand). Movingly, Robert Wilson's gifts were never to things that entertained him, or to pet projects; they were always to charities trying very hard to make the world a better place for everybody.

The Ages of the Investor - A Critical Look at Life-Cycle Investing (Paperback): William J Bernstein The Ages of the Investor - A Critical Look at Life-Cycle Investing (Paperback)
William J Bernstein
R208 Discovery Miles 2 080 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

"The Ages of the Investor: A Critical Look at Life-cycle Investing" is intended to be the first installment in the "Investing for Adults" series. Just as grown-ups do not believe in the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, or Santa Claus, "Investing adults" know that there is no such creature as the Stock-picking Fairy or the Market-timing Fairy. Further, there is no Risk Fairy who will write you cheap options that will protect your stock holdings against loss. Investing adults are familiar with Gene Fama, Zvi Bodie, Jack Bogle, and Burton Malkiel, and understand that a mean variance optimizer does not blend vegetables. In other words, this series is not for beginners. Future topics will, with luck, include the limits of market efficiency and diversification in increasingly non-segmented global markets.

The Battle for Investment Survival - How to Make Profits (Paperback): G. M. Loeb The Battle for Investment Survival - How to Make Profits (Paperback)
G. M. Loeb
R239 Discovery Miles 2 390 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

This book is called The Battle for Investment Survival because protecting and increasing capital is in fact a "battle." In addition to experience, flair and contacts, matters like this need uninterrupted time and attention and also a need to succeed. There will be many who should learn from this book that trying to find their own way in Wall Street will prove unprofitable. They will benefit, however, by what they save rather than by what they make. Every reader should close the book knowing more about the hazards of preserving capital and why the book is entitled, The Battle for Investment Survival. To quote again, "forewarned is forearmed," and a knowledge of true investment objectives and the great difficulty in their achievement is half the battle and of great value in itself.
