How will you support yourself or your family without a job? What is your backup plan for dealing with financial emergencies or hardship? What will my expenses in retirement be? How much debt do I have? How can I boost retirement income? What about early retirement? Is it even possible? It is everyone's dream to retire early. To some, it's a fairy tale that you see in movies and not for reality. The likes of Mark Zuckerberg and the other game changers in businesses seem like a long shot for ordinary individuals with ordinary skills. You can have a great idea, but the chance of that becoming Facebook or Twitter level is pretty steep. But is it possible to never work again at some point and still maintain your lifestyle? Without going into any illegal/extreme high risk trade, the answer to retiring early is a big yes. There have been many people who are able to retire early, not by kidnapping rich kids, smuggling drugs, or illegal ivory. The answer is very simple but difficult to manage for most people. When you look at those who are able to retire early, they were able to do so only because of sound financial planning and management. There is no magic formula that will make you rich and not work. This is just simple common sense that is just hard to apply in real life. This book will guide you through the process of getting to retire early and enjoy the benefits. There is no shortcut but merely seizing opportunities that other people fail to capitalize on. The sooner you apply these principles; the sooner your retirement will be. 1. Language: English.

Bram Stoker Award-nominated author. Need to hide something from the fae? Got a tricky trans-dimensional delivery to make? Need a big ball of magic that can destroy the world? Call Black Box, Inc. The world as we know it is gone. Since the "extradimensional happening", every creature, monster, and fairy tale goblin has turned Asheville, North Carolina, into their personal playground. An uneasy truce exists between the races, but Chase Lawter’s unique ability puts him squarely in the crosshairs of treachery, feuds, and monsters looking to make a buck on black market goods. Chase is the only known being who can pull material from between dimensions and shape it into whatever he likes - like boxes. Like boxes in which folks hide smoking guns and severed heads. Only Chase can hide the boxes, and only Chase can recover them from the Dim. All for a tidy sum, of course. His crack team - a yeti, a zombie, and a fae-trained assassin - have his back. What could possibly go wrong? Jake Bible, Bram Stoker Award-nominated novelist and author of the best-selling Z-Burbia series, short story writer, independent screenwriter, podcaster, and inventor of the drabble novel, has entertained thousands with his horror and sci/fi tales.

Favorite fairy tale characters, including Peter Pan, Rapunzel, the Ugly Duckling, and Cinderella are depicted as living in the twenty-first century and find themselves braving creeps on dating sites, gluten allergies, and Facebook stalkers.
If the stories they tell about themselves are to be believed, all of the tech giants&#8212;Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and Amazon&#8212;were built from the ground up through hard work, a few good ideas, and the entrepreneurial daring to seize an opportunity when it presented itself. With searing wit and blistering commentary Bit Tyrants provides an urgent corrective to this froth of board room marketing copy that is so often passed off as analysis. For fans of corporate fairy-tales there are no shortage of official histories that celebrate the innovative genius of Steve Jobs, liberal commentators who fall over themselves to laude Bill Gates's selfless philanthropy, or politicians who will tell us to listen to Mark Zuckerberg for advice on how to protect our democracy from foreign influence. In this highly unauthorized account of the Big Five's origins, Rob Larson sets the record straight, and in the process shreds every focus-grouped bromide about corporate benevolence he could get his hands on. Those readers unwilling to smile and nod as every day we become more dependent on our phones and apps to do our chores, our jobs, and our socializing can take heart as Larson provides us with maps to all the shallow graves, skeleton filled closets, and invective laced emails Big Tech left behind on its ascent to power. His withering analysis will help readers crack the code of the economic dynamics that allowed these companies to become near-monopolies very early on, and, with a little bit of luck, his calls for digital socialism might just inspire a viral movement for online revolution.

The Poetry Universe is a forum for poets and writers on Facebook, created in 2014. Members include experienced poets and beginning poets stepping into the poetry community. Our authors span the globe, and some poems are translated into English to reach a wider audience. My goal, as the forum's founder, was to create a group whose spirit consists of total writing freedom and the widespread wings of the universe of thought. We are all trying to advance our poetic skills, visiting the furthest dimensions of Earth and the universe with our poetic pen, the starship doing wonders. Freedom and the wings of the universe, its unfathomable tides, its enchanting veils, whether of time or love or anything else, are number one in what is guiding this group. The spirit of the Poetry Universe forum is aptly represented in its member's entries. Poems are written across a broad range of subjects as well as in various styles of prose, and originate from all around the world. One aspect of the forum is our 'challenges', which have become very popular. After several challenges specifically designed to create poetry for young readers, we devised the idea of publishing books of children's poems that would also delight parents. And thus, 'Chimes And Rhymes For Grownups' was the first book with fairy tales born and now follows another one with as enchanting fairy tales and many more drawings that can attract c hildren's creativity. Let's give it a warm applause: welcome, dear 'Abracadabra'! Our poetry book is rich both in excellent poems and enthralling illustrations that children of all ages will adore. We sincerely hope you enjoy this book as much as we have enjoyed creating it. ~ Thaddeus Hutyra
