Ever stood in front of a closet full of clothes, trying to find something to wear? Ever traded in a perfectly good car for...another car? Ever killed some time talking on your cell phone while standing in line to get a newer version of the same phone? Ever gone shopping just to relax? If you answered ´´yes” to any of those questions, you might be rich. No, you probably don’t feel rich. Rich is the other guy. Rich is having more than you currently have. But you can be rich and not feel it. And that’s the problem. Andy is convinced that most of us are richer than we think. We just aren’t very good at it. It’s one thing to be rich. Andy wants to help us all be good at it! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jon Gauger. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/oasi/001318/bk_oasi_001318_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
When it comes to you and your money, it is important to remember that your income can only go as far as you can. Do you know anybody who has ever won the lottery? Studies actually have found that people who have suddenly won or inherited large amounts of money often end up losing it all after several years - and it´s likely not a coincidence. In many of these cases, these people did not have what it takes to handle their money, mentally. Interestingly, people who have worked themselves into being millionaires can often incur financial tragedies and still manage to get back on their feet within a short period of time. Think about it - if you believe that you don´t deserve a lot of money, will you be successful in handling it? If you have a shopping addiction and you do nothing to overcome it, what will your wallet look like? Does your character reflect your income? The point is that your financial situation will often reflect who you are as a person - the more successful you are in personal growth, the more your earning potential can be. If you´re the type of person who has the ability to exert willpower and discipline when it comes to kicking bad habits, going after goals, and being honest with yourself about your finances, chances are you´ll be much more well-off financially. The key to setting yourself up for financial success is to start from within. It is very easy to dream of becoming a millionaire, living in a mansion, and driving behind the wheel of a brand new car - but first, you must prepare yourself to get all of those things. Money doesn´t grow on trees, but it does grow from desire and ambition. Think back to school when you learned about cause and effect - there is an effect for every cause - your weight is an effect of what you eat, your knowledge is an effect of your desire to learn, and your money is an effect of what you do to earn and manage it. This book has something to offer to each and every person. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christopher Shelby Slone. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/045189/bk_acx0_045189_sample.mp3.

After more than a decade of working in Hollywood, actress Jayne Amelia Larson found herself out of luck, out of work, and out of prospects. Without telling her friends or family, she took a job as a limousine driver, thinking that the work might be a good way to dig out of debt while meeting A-list celebrities and important movie moguls. When she got hired to drive for the Saudi royal family vacationing in Beverly Hills, Larson thought she’d been handed the golden ticket. She’d heard stories of the Saudis giving $20,000 tips and Rolex watches to their drivers. But when the family arrived at LAX with millions of dollars in cash - money that they planned to spend over the next couple of weeks - Larson realized that she might be in for the ride of her life. With awestruck humor and deep compassion, she describes her eye-opening adventures as the only female in a detail of over 40 assigned to drive a beautiful Saudi princess, her family, and their extensive entourage. To be a good chauffeur means to be a ´´fly on the wall”, to never speak unless spoken to, to never ask questions, to allow people to forget that you are there. The nature of the employment - Larson was on call 24 hours a day and 7 days a week - and the fact that she was the only female driver gave her an up close and personal view of one of the most closely guarded monarchies in the world, a culture of great intrigue and contradiction, and of unimaginable wealth. The Saudis traveled large: they brought furniture, Persian rugs, Limoges china, lustrous silver serving trays, and extraordinary coffees and teas from around the world. The family and their entourage stayed at several luxury hotels, occupying whole floors of each (the women housed separately from the Saudi men, whom Larson barely saw). Each day the royal women spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on plastic surgery and mega-shopping sprees on Rodeo Drive. Even the tea setup had its very own hotel room, while the servants were cramme... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jayne Amelia Larson.

Hildegarde Withers heads down Mexico way where the death in the afternoon involves neither a matador nor a bull. Inspector Oscar Piper is off on a junket to Mexico in the summer of 1937 (surrounded by a bunch of Democrats, huffed Miss Withers) when a customs inspector on a train headed for Mexico City sniffs a very potent bottle of cheap perfume and promptly drops dead. Quite naturally, Oscar telegraphs Hildegarde in Manhattan about the perfume and quite naturally Miss Withers packs her bags and heads south of the border, figuring Oscar is out of his depth if he has to rely on deductive reasoning rather than a rubber hose. Why any of the occupants of the train should want to kill a harmless Mexican customs inspector is so puzzling that everyone assumes that the real intended victim is a self-made rich american woman who seemingly has rededicated her life to shopping. Her husband ought to be the prime suspect but he seems devoted to her, although he was spotted giving cash to a pretty young redhead when he thought no one was looking. Then there were the two American fast buck artists who figured they could get rich buying up all the gasoline-powered generators in Mexico on the eve of a strike by utility workers. They looked especially guilty when their shady, double-crossing associate - a somewhat accomplished ladies´ man - becomes the second person to die. A blue banderilla, usually used to slow bulls down, is driven through his back during a Sunday afternoon bullfight in Mexico City. Miss Withers borrows a technique from Sherlock Holmes himself to show that a banderilla makes for a lousy murder weapon, a conclusion also reached by a rather odd young Mexican man whose English seems to come and go. First published in 1937, this lighthearted mystery displays all the charm that made Miss Withers Anthony Boucher´s favorite female sleuth as well as a favorite of moviegoers during the early days of the talkies. 1.
