101 Weird Ways to Make Money is all about uncommon jobs and businesses. It deals with ways in which people have actually made money. Yes, that could mean missing out on some possibly profitable businesses, but I opted for only proven jobs and ventures in 101 Ways. Some of the chapters cover...

Being a repo-man
Selling aromatherapy candles
Crime scene cleanup
Traveling ESL teacher
Selling specialty firewood
Profiting from virtual real estate in online worlds
Working as a casino dealer
Treasure hunting
Renting rugs to college students
Providing green funerals
Pet sitting
Working in surveillance

Most of the ways covered do not have extensive requirements, and many can be done with little or no investment. With all jobs I look at how to make more money as an employee, or how to parlay the experience into a business.

Secrets of Lucky People was published in 2008 as a paperback. As is perhaps appropriate for the author of such a book, I got lucky and a Japanese publisher picked up my book as well. I have no idea what that version says, but hopefully it is similar to my English version, which simply put, is about how to have more good luck in your life.

Beyond Mental Slavery - You think you control you mind, but your mind is often the one in control. Ideas, biases and internal dialogs are mistaken for your own thinking--for your self. But they are not you, and they don't look for truth. In fact, these mental programs seek only to perpetuate themselves.

Beyond Mental Slavery looks at many of the various reactive processes and biases that become your master, determining your subsequent thoughts and the actions. It points out the limitations inherent in ordinary thinking. Then it lays out steps you can take to escape the rule of the reactive mind - to gain a new intellectual and personal freedom. You can have a more powerful mind, but also one that is more useful and under control. You can visit Beyond Mental Slavery .com to read excerpts.

E-Books

Although I have been writing essays, stories, poems and more since I was a child, my first books weren't written until Ana and I had been doing business online for a year or so. I published them as e-books, and I sell them on various websites.

As part of various promotions, my ebooks have been featured alongside those of: Jack Canfield (author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series of books), Dr. Wayne W. Dyer (American self-help advocate, author - famous for Your Erroneous Zones, one of the best-selling books of all time), Marci Shimoff (author of best-selling book, Happy for No Reason), and many other authors. You can click any of the titles below to get more information.

100 Ways To Increase Your Mind Power - Actually more like 150 ways, but I didn't want to change the title. This link is for the PDF version, but the book is also available on Amazon's Kindle and Barnes and Noble's Nook reader.

Problem Solving Power - All about creative problem solving techniques. Apply the techniques spelled out here and you can have a hundred new ideas today. This link is for the PDF version, but the book is also available on Amazon's Kindle and Barnes and Noble's Nook reader.

Mind Power Meditation - This is free by email (use that link). It is a good general guide to meditation, but is specifically aimed at how to use it for improving one's mind.

Ultralight Backpacking Secrets - How to go really light when you are backpacking. I have camped overnight many miles from the nearest road, and with temperatures below freezing, yet with only nine pounds on my back--and that includes all food and water. This link is for the PDF version, but the book is also available on Amazon's Kindle and Barnes and Noble's Nook reader.

The Thousand Mile Hole - This book is about how to think more deeply and creatively. The link is for the Amazon Kindle version; it is also available on Nook. I also have a website dedicated to the book, with excerpts and more, here: http://www.thethousandmilehole.com

Note: If you do not have a Kindle reader, it costs nothing to get the version that you use on your computer, which is available here: Get Kindle for PC
