Dvorah Lansky Ignite Your Passion Author Interview

An interview with our “Ignite Your Passion Kindle Your Internal Spark” Amazon Kindle anthology co-author D’Vorah Lansky.

CyberLife Tutors: You are a co-author of “Ignite Your Passion Kindle Your Internal Spark. “What is it that you are passionate about?
D’vorah Lansky: On a personal note, I am passionate about joyful living, being with friends and family, and taking time to do the things I enjoy by “taking time to smell the roses!”

CyberLife Tutors: Why did you contribute this specific story to “Ignite Your Passion Kindle Your Internal Spark?”
D’vorah Lansky: The chapter I contributed is focused on “success principles.” I shared this content because I feel it is so important for people to understand the importance of setting goals, working smart – not hard, learning how to prioritize people over paper, and other strategies that can help them to become as efficient and successful as possible.

CyberLife Tutors: Is this your first published book? If not, what other books have you published?
D’vorah Lansky: In addition to “Ignite Your Passion” I am a contributing author in several publications, such as: Chicken Soup for the Network Marketer’s Soul; 365 Days of Gratitude; Corporate Mom Dropouts; and Building Relationships that Build Your Business.

I’ve also published several of my own books including the Amazon bestseller, Book Marketing Made Easy: Simple Strategies for Selling Your Nonfiction Book Online; Connect, Communicate, and Profit: Build Successful Business Relationships Online; and Book Marketing Success Secrets.

CyberLife Tutors: What else would you to share with our readers
D’vorah Lansky: If I were to offer one tip for making the most of your time while increasing your joy and success, I’d suggest that you take some time to go to your favorite writing place, where you can think and write without interruption. Turn off your cell phone and spend time writing down all of the things that you love doing (in your professional world.) Then create another list of all of the things that you do but that you really don’t enjoy doing.

Find a way to prioritize the things that you do enjoy doing while finding ways to delegate the things that don’t bring you joy. Reach out to your community for recommendations to service providers who specialize in those areas. By outsourcing the things that do not bring you joy, to someone who makes less than you make per hour, you’ll be freed up to focus not only on the things you enjoy, but on the things that generate additional income.

CyberLife Tutors: You have a special offer for our readers?
D’vorah Lansky: I’d love to connect with our readers by offering one of my most popular free collections of tips on the topic of Virtual Book Tours. They can access these tips and connect with an amazing community of authors an entrepreneurs at: www.VirtualBookToursMadeEasy.com

Lisa Deon Ignite Your Passion Book Author Interview

An interview with our “Ignite Your Passion Kindle Your Internal Spark” Amazon Kindle anthology co-author Lisa Deon.

CyberLife Tutors: You are a co-author of “Ignite Your Passion Kindle Your Internal Spark. “What is it that you are passionate about?
Lisa Deon: I love animals, especially horses and dogs, and am passionate about pet responsibility, particularly when it comes to spaying and neutering. There is a glut of dogs, cat and horses in the United States, and during the past few years, because of fiscal issues, some of them were surrendered, dumped, or left to starve. The decision to bring a pet into your family is a long term commitment, and should not be entered into lightly. So before you fall in love with the “purebred” dog being sold from a box on the frontage road at the local Wal-Mart, consider volunteering at your local animal shelter. You might end up finding the perfect fit for your family while helping other displaced animals.

CyberLife Tutors: Why did you contribute this specific story to “Ignite Your Passion Kindle Your Internal Spark?”
Lisa Deon: I have been fortunate to have kept my involvement with horses most of my life now, and although I no longer have a farm and the luxury of looking out my kitchen window to see my favorite equines cavorting in the back yard, I can still show my love for these noble animals by writing about them.

CyberLife Tutors: Is this your first published book? If not, what other books have you published?
Lisa Deon: This was my first published book but it is not my only published book. “The Carriage Trade”, book one of The Carriage Chronicles, is available at Amazon and Smashwords as eBooks, and in paperback at Amazon and Createspace. Splitting The Difference, a Carriage Chronicle short, is available exclusively for Kindle at Amazon and book two in The Carriage Chronicles, The Re-Education of the One Trick Pony, will be available Spring 2013.

CyberLife Tutors: What else would you to share with our readers?
Lisa Deon: Ask for Lisa for a carriage ride tour at Temple Square in Salt Lake City.

CyberLife Tutors: You have a special offer for our readers?Lisa Deon: For a limited time use coupon code KD29H to purchase “The Carriage Tradeat  for 25% off the regular retail price of $3.99. This coupon is valid until March 1, 2013.CyberLife Tutors: How can readers contact you?

Gaye Mack Ignite Your Passion Book Author Interview

An interview with our “Ignite Your Passion Kindle Your Internal Spark” Amazon Kindle anthology co-author Gaye Mack.

CyberLife Tutors: You are a co-author of “Ignite Your Passion Kindle Your Internal Spark. “What is it that you are passionate about?
Gaye Mack: Throughout my younger and later adult years, my life has been influenced by a variety of passions. Some have been transitory; others have firmly remained as I’ve grown older. If I were to identify the one ‘umbrella’ passion it would be exploration of those things that exist beyond our five senses and how we’re affected by them as spirit in body. The pathways of my explorations have been varied; interest in cultures around the world, their spiritual and ancient healing traditions, experiencing them first hand and, always writing, writing, writing.

CyberLife Tutors: Why did you contribute this specific story to “Ignite Your Passion Kindle Your Internal Spark?”
Gaye Mack: If I’ve learned nothing else (but that’s not to say I always ‘listen to my own lectures’ as a friend of mine is fond of quoting), it’s the importance of trusting our gut, intuition, whatever term is comfortable for you. Listening to our soul’s wisdom is one of the most important things we can do for ourselves this lifetime on our evolutional path and it’s not easy because our ego always wants to be in charge. I felt it was important to share my own experience with this lesson and the rocky road I traveled to ‘get it’ (and still am!) in my own life.

CyberLife Tutors: Is this your first published book? If not, what other books have you published?
Gaye Mack: No. As I mention in my story, Polair Publishing- London, has published my books, “Igniting Soul Fire, Spiritual Dimensions of the Bach Flower Remedies” and “Making Complementary Therapies Work for You” (which has been translated into German). I’m also a contributing author along with Donald Neale Walsh, Irvin Laszlo and other spiritual pioneers, to “The View~Mind Over Matter, Heart Over Mind from Conan Doyle to Conversations with God.”

CyberLife Tutors: What else would you to share with our readers
Gaye Mack: Currently I have two 12th century historical mysteries represented by my literary agent, Peter Miller of Global Lion Intellectual Property Management with the goal of obtaining a contract with one of the traditional houses, as I work on the third book in this series. I’m also working on a sequel to “Igniting Soul Fire, Spiritual Dimensions of the Bach Flower Remedies“, which looks at the connection between Dr. Edward Bach’s Twelve Healers and the evolutional karmic story in our astrological birth chart.

CyberLife Tutors: You have a special offer for our readers?

Gaye Mack: As an active practitioner and teacher in the Bach flower remedies, I do see people privately for evaluation sessions regarding the flower remedies. For those who are also interested in astrology as well, sessions may include some integration with this tradition; it’s always up to the client. For more complete information on my Bach work, its best to look at my website or blog.

Guerrilla Marketing For Job Hunters Book Review

Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 2.0: 1,001 Unconventional Tips, Tricks and Tactics for Landing Your Dream Job
icon is chock full of unconventional ideas for landing your perfect position. My copy is full of sticky notes, highlighting and writing in the margin. This updated version has over 1,000 ideas to jump start your job search.

Employees who remained in positions due to lack of job opening are getting restless. Many people are looking to move up to a better job. According to CNN.com, 84% of employees plan to look for a new position in 2011.

But Paul Bernard warns that they shouldn’t leave their day jobs too soon. “People need to have realistic expectations,” he cautioned. “It could still take 10 months to find a job.”

Which ones will be successful in landing their dream job? Those who use Guerrilla Marketing techniques to demonstrate credibility and brand awareness.

This book gives specific tactics on how to research companies and people through accessible tools. Using the author’s advice you can learn how to find email addresses for those you want to contact, gather information on interviewers and identify associations. The search tips make Google a much more useful tool delivering more specific results and making more effective use of your time.

Networking is one of my passions and this book devotes a chapter to this topic. Their approach includes both online and in person connecting. The “refer yourself” tip works for me.

Networking is about building awareness and relationships. To get hired, candidates have to stand out from the crowd. The book gives solid advice on writing, getting published and podcasting.

Public relations is not just for companies. Job candidates should also create and implement a PR strategy. Read the advice on how to tell dynamic stories to make your point in networking situations, job interviews or your writing.

Real life stories are sprinkled throughout the book giving practical examples of these concepts at work in the work place.

I recommend this book for anyone who is even thinking about changing jobs. You will shorten your job search by implementing the ideas in this book.
