Your average working person can come up with two different ways of earning money: they receive a promotion or they work more hours; but have you tried a different method - passive income? Getting promoted or working additional hours can limit how much you earn. But when you develop multiple avenues of passive income, you can essentially make as much as you want! Look at it this way, a business consultant may charge about $200 per hour (probably more than what you earn as an employee), but that is their limit! If they walked into a different place and decided to start charging $1,000 per hour, they most likely will be redirected to the exit door. Every job pays what it´s worth, and since a day has only 24 hours there is also a limit on how much can be made in a year. If you do, however, develop some form of income that doesn´t require you to be present, you could repeatedly generate more money without reaching a glass income ceiling! In this book you will learn: What a niche website is How to develop money-making websites How to use different tools and WordPress plugins to monetize your website How to use SEO to promote your niche websites How to build links and other strategies for your niche website Let´s get started! 1.

Are you a citizen of the United States who lives abroad? Maybe you´re thinking about moving from the United States, and aren´t sure how this affects your tax filing requirements. Or perhaps you have been tax non-compliant for many years, and don´t know how to get caught up with the US government without incurring huge fees. You could be a self-employed ´´digital nomad´´ who works from many different countries, moving wherever you want at your leisure. No matter what your situation, you probably still owe taxes to the US. If you don´t file correctly, you could be missing out on important opportunities to legally reduce your tax burden. The United States of America is one of only two countries in the world that imposes taxes based on citizenship, not on where you live or where your money comes from. How can you ensure that Uncle Sam gets his due without suffering enormous penalties on the road to becoming tax compliant? By combining the right strategies for citizenship, residency, banking, incorporation, and physical presence in other countries, it is possible for most people who work abroad to legally keep their taxes at $0. In this book, certified public account, US immigrant (and eventual emigrant), and perpetual traveler Olivier Wagner teaches listeners not just the philosophy of being a worldly American, but how to use 100% legal strategies to make your life easier and less burdened by taxation. Wagner even takes you step by step through the specific forms and schedules you will use to file your taxes, no matter where you are. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gregory V. Diehl.

So, you want to be an investment banker, huh? Well, you´re looking in the right place. This is the only book on the market that guides you right through the process from where and when to apply, to the most likely interview questions and even how to impress your boss from day one ensuring you keep that job. Job applications to investment banks have shot up due to all the media attention that the industry has received but there are fewer jobs available: The unemployment rate for 16 to 24-year-olds has risen sharply in the current recession, from 15% in 2008 to 19% in 2009 and then to 20% in 2010 (poverty.org.uk). Just 54% of Americans aged 18 to 24 currently have jobs. That´s the lowest employment rate for this age group since the government began keeping track in 1948. (Pew Research Center) With the top investment banks now combing the world over to find the very best person for the job, you need to stay a step ahead. To help you succeed, To Become an Investment Banker gives you all the information you need to have at your fingertips as well as extra advice to ensure you stand out from the crowd. Much of the information is presented in a bullet point format ensuring clarity and absolute ease of access. In addition, the laid-back, chatty tone of this semi-autobiographical book makes it an enjoyable read as well as an essential guide. Heather Katsonga-Woodward started her investment banking journey in 2004 with an internship at Goldman Sachs. Since then, she has picked up a mass of useful tips that helped her survive, even during the whirlwinds of the 2007-2009 credit crunch. With input from four other investment bankers, To Become an Investment Banker encompasses 25 years of collective banking expertise. This book is the perfect starting point if your sights are set on working in any major financial center. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Heather Katsonga-Woodward.

Ideas for leaders to engage directly with customers to shape their brand and marketplace success... Since its debut E-commerce has been centered on the transaction, which represents less than one percent of the time we spend online. Now, we are entering the era of Pre-Commerce where customers make their own decision to buy or support a brand before the transaction. Pre-Commerce explains how the exploding use of social media channels has fundamentally changed the way customers go about making their purchasing decisions, how they educate themselves and why they choose to support certain brands above others. It shows what executives must do to re-create the way their companies interact with and learn from their customers, employees and competitors. It includes exclusive interviews and anecdotes Pearson has conducted or experienced with numerous influential C-suite executives during his time as leader of Dells global social media team and as a consultant to Fortune 1000 companies, worldwide.Offers a step-by-step process for leaders to apply this knowledge to begin transforming their companies, right nowBegins with a foreword from Mark Addicks, Chief Marketing Officer, General MillsOver 25 Fortune 500 executives interviewed, including special side-bar interviews with Michael Dell and Marc BenioffExplores the concept of ´´Pre-commerce´´ - the customer´s decision making happens well before a transaction takes place and continues after the transaction, representing 99% of time spent online, often outside a company´s reach todayShows how to build internal employee networks and how to take your first and most important steps to integrate social media throughout your company Pearson reveals that the best ideas are often free and the technology needed is rarely a cost-issue.
