Breaking Free is about making the transition from working for the man to working for yourself by starting your own business or freelancing. By focusing on the personal experiences, ideas, and actions of a variety of self-employed people—including freelance writers, contractors, service providers, store owners and franchisees, sales reps, and others—this book offers readers deep insights into the ideas and decisions required to make self-employment a reality. Along the way, author and self-employed professional Chris Lauer offers a wealth of practical small-business insights and tips. Breaking Free thus offers would-be entrepreneurs and freelancers something priceless—both the skills and encouragement required to shake free of corporate shackles and take the leap into small-scale entrepreneurship. Featuring real stories about the initial spark that motivated individuals to pursue independence and entrepreneurship, Breaking Free follows a variety of entrepreneurs as they move from their jobs as employees to the ranks of the self-employed. It also covers the nuts and bolts of self-employment—pricing and marketing services, keeping an eye on the bottom line, and growing the business, among other topics. In addition, Lauer focuses on the advances in technology that make self-employment easier today than ever before. Unlike most books on self-employment, Lauer uses vivid, real-life stories and tips to help would-be entrepreneurs decide the route that is best for them. Experienced entrepreneurs describe how they came up with ideas for their businesses, how they kept their ventures in motion during the early days and over the long term, how they grew, and when they recognized it was time to call it quits and sell or shutter the business. This is not a book for the next Bill Gates, but for the majority of new business owners and those dreaming of creating their own jobs: people ready to take a few risks to make a decent living on their own terms and gain some independence. Both descriptive and prescriptive, Breaking Free presents the latest ways to capitalize on today's many opportunities for self-sufficiency and financial autonomy.

Mike Yeager, an FBI agent with a gift for profiling, is no angel, yet somehow the Bureau has always found a way to forgive him his mistakes. Now, even though he's in disgrace, there's a job that only he can do. In New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, a couple was kidnapped; the husband---a spy---was tortured and killed, and now the wife is in danger. Normally the Bureau might ask Yeager to lead a rescue mission, but this time, they want him to pose as a fallen agent---a broken wing---infiltrate the group responsible, and wait to see what he can learn. The kidnappers are thought to be working for Emelio Barca, one of the most powerful crime bosses in New Orleans, and the target of Mike's past botched case. Mike sees this opportunity as his last chance, even though it's bound to wreck his renewed relationship with fellow agent Peggy Weaver, maybe for good. He's gone undercover once before in his career, and that time his mistakes led to Barca's escape and the maiming of Mike's first partner. This time he vows Barca won't get away. One way or another, Yeager's career will come full circle in the Big Easy, the city where it all began. Broken Wing is a breathtaking page-turner from a writer who seems to have mastered the genre in only three novels.

Here are just some of the key principles covered: Interventions Should Be Based on a Thorough Unbiased Assessment Victim/Perpetrator Distinctions are Overstated, and Much Partner Abuse is Mutual Regardless of Perpetrator Gender, Child Witnesses to Partner Abuse are Adversely Affected, and are at Risk for Perpetrating Partner Abuse as Adults This new gender-inclusive approach to assessment and intervention provides a significant departure from traditional paradigms of domestic violence, and offers a much-needed awareness to effectively prevent violence in our communities today and for future generations.

A Comprehensive Approach

This breakthrough handbook for mental health professionals and educators offers practical, hands-on information for conducting assessments and providing treatments that take the entire family system into account. Rich with research that shows women are abusive within relationships at rates comparable to men, the book eschews the field's reliance on traditional domestic violence theory and treatment, which favors violence interventions for men and victim services for women and ignores the dynamics of the majority of violent relationships. Thus, the author identifies and measures protocols that help practitioners make accurate assessments for both men and women and then carefully selects the treatment modality and curricula for group, couples, and/or individual work that will help clients break their particular cycle of violence while ensuring victim safety.

It was at six years old that Spirit first appeared to Christi. Fear gripped her life from a young age, and Spirit wasnt the only thing scaring her. She knew that not everyone saw Spirit the way she did, and without direction and support, she refused Spirits call until she was twenty-three years old. The only answer was to embrace her true calling as a psychic visionary, medium, and healer. With life taking her to various locations, it was often difficult to make new friends and start over. The one constant has always been for her to discover insightful ways to help people. Nothing would prepare her for her toughest work in the criminal justice field as a probation and parole officer. Riddled with anxiety, depression, and a lack of boundaries as an empath, she knew she could no longer ignore her divine purpose and continue in the criminal justice field. After years of providing inspiration, instruction, and advice to others, it has culminated in Breaking Free: From Probation Officer to Psychic Medium. Christis message is to help us understand that by listening to our own divine guidance and understanding our fear and anxiety, we can all live the amazing lives our soul knows from birth.

Are you obsessed? We can all feel that way at times--when all our thoughts, time, and energy are poured into something all-consuming. But for too many teen girls, obsession becomes a way of life. In Obsessed, bestselling author Hayley DiMarco helps those girls leave behind the thoughts, actions, and stuff that so easily get between them and God. She challenges them to look at three key areas where it all tends to start: obsession with losing (fear, worry, stress, busyness) obsession with gaining (love, stuff, success) obsession with numbing (addiction, cutting, eating, purging, controlling, comfort) Obsessed helps girls to identify the unhealthy affections in their lives and points them to God to be set free from them. Life's pursuits aren't inherently bad, DiMarco reminds girls, but the level of devotion you give to them can make them bad for you. When you put God in his proper place, the other stuff goes to its proper place as well. And the result is a life rightly obsessed with God.

Jesus died on the cross of Calvary to give us the ability to overcome adversity and be victorious in every circumstance that life throws at us. Many Christians have no idea how to apply the Bible to their own personal lives in order to walk in the victory that belongs to us. Break Through and Break Free will show you how to make the Bible and all that God offers you, as a believer, a reality in your own life. It is possible to be an "overcomer" when it comes to this thing called "life," and the way to do it is through Bible meditation. In this book, I will show you what meditation is, how to do it, and how to get results. I have included practical meditation guides for the following areas in your life: dignity and self-worth, healing, prosperity, anti-anxiety and alleviating worry. As you meditate on these scriptures, revelation will follow, which will then lead to manifestation. This book will help you to be all that Christ died for you to be; to have all Christ died for you to have; and to do all that Christ died for you to do. Vicki Heymann was born in South Africa and now lives in Australia, with her husband, Marius, and her two children, Jacobus and Ingrid. Vicki has completed a Bible course through the Correspondence School of Jerry Savelle Ministries and graduated with a ministerial diploma. She preached regularly at Newcastle Christian Centre under the leadership of Pastors Marty and Margot McCrindle. She coordinated faith courses and was a prayer leader, while attending.
