Are you ready to find your perfect mate? There’s no question, finding true, lasting love, can be difficult.

The Frog Whisperer is designed to help you find love with a simple, 3 step approach. It’s not about controlling the frogs (people that you date) it’s about the “vibe” that you are putting out to prospective partners.

When you take the steps to get clear on what you want, and be the most confident (and happy) version of yourself, you will be on your way to finding that perfect person.

Ready, Set, Leap!

* In the READY phase, we get crystal clear on what our perfect life looks like and the qualities of the partner we desire.
* In SET, we take the steps to move into the best, most fabulous version of ourselves possible.
* And then, we’re ready to LEAP, which is get out onto the dating scene.

37 Free Books in Amazon Kindle Store

Well, after two days of “just” a few new free books here and there on the Amazon Kindle store, they opened the proverbial floodgates – listed below are 37 free books available for you.  As usual, I do not know how long these will be offered for free as it could be just hours or even weeks, so if you are interested in any or all of them please grab them now.  Due to the number of books, I am not having a detailed description on each, but have categorized them by genre: there should be something here for most folks!

Also, before you start perusing and clicking away, how about telling a Kindle owner friend about this blog?  I’m sure their wallet will thank you!

11 Free Books from the Amazon Kindle Store

Here’s something a little different, and is something I have thought of doing with the content of my other blogs (but who the heck has enough time these days?): Amazon has released 11 daily calendars for free this morning in the Kindle store.  Perusing a couple of them, they appear very similar to the paper tear-off calendars many of us have or receive as gifts; some of them are quite funny from the ones I looked at this morning.

I imagine several of these will look great on the Kindle Fire which will be in a lot of our hands next week – while you may not have your Kindle Fire today, it might be a good idea to grab the ones with cartoons in them now as there is no guarantee they will be available for free next week.  Just grab it now, and when the Fire is in your hands add it to the Fire’s library.  As usual, I don’t know how long these will be offered for free so if you are interested in any or all of them please grab them now. Here they are, in no particular order:

Investing in People – Free from Amazon Kindle Store

Investing in People: Financial Impact of Human Resource Initiatives by Wayne F. Cascio and John W. Boudreau is free today from the Amazon Kindle store, and has received an average user rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars based on three customer reviews.  You can pick up your free copy by clicking here or typing in http://amzn.to/o2YCLB into your computer’s web browser.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

A Logical, Proven Framework for Understanding the Economic Value of Human Resources Investments

  • How to choose Human Resources investments that deliver optimal strategic value—and eliminate those that don’t
  • Best-practice metrics and analysis techniques for talent management, performance management, health and wellness programs, and much more

Investing in People introduces a breakthrough approach to Human Resources (HR) measurement that systematically aligns HR investments with organizational goals and helps make HR the true strategic partner it needs to be. Wayne F. Cascio and John W. Boudreau show exactly how to choose, implement, and use metrics to improve decision-making, optimize organizational effectiveness, and maximize the value of HR investments.

You’ll master crucial foundational principles such as risk, return, and economies of scale—and use them to evaluate investments objectively in everything from work/life programs to training. Cascio and Boudreau also introduce powerful ways to integrate HR with enterprise strategy and budgeting and for gaining commitment from business leaders outside the HR function.

If you truly want “a seat at the table”—or if you want to keep the one you have—you’ll find this book utterly indispensable.
