A hard-working attorney at a large Manhattan law firm and a diligent maid of honor to her charmed best friend Darcy, Rachel has always played by all the rules.

Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ – Daniel Goleman

Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ - Daniel Goleman
Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ – Daniel Goleman

 

Everyone knows that high IQ is no guarantee of success, happiness, or virtue, but until Emotional Intelligence, we could only guess why. Daniel Goleman’s brilliant report from the frontiers of psychology and neuroscience offers startling new insight into our “two minds”—the rational and the emotional—and how they together shape our destiny.

Through vivid examples, Goleman delineates the five crucial skills of emotional intelligence, and shows how they determine our success in relationships, work, and even our physical well-being. What emerges is an entirely new way to talk about being smart.

The best news is that “emotional literacy” is not fixed early in life. Every parent, every teacher, every business leader, and everyone interested in a more civil society, has a stake in this compelling vision of human possibility.

The Apprentice- Tess Gerritsen

The Apprentice- Tess Gerritsen
The Apprentice- Tess Gerritsen

THE APPRENTICE

It is a boiling hot Boston summer. Adding to the city’s woes is a series of shocking crimes, in which wealthy men are made to watch while their wives are brutalized. A sadistic demand that ends in abduction and death.

The pattern suggests one man: serial killer Warren Hoyt, recently removed from the city’s streets. Police can only assume an acolyte is at large, a maniac basing his attacks on the twisted medical techniques of the madman he so admires. At least that’s what Detective Jane Rizzoli thinks. Forced again to confront the killer who scarred her—literally and figuratively—she is determined to finally end Hoyt’s awful influence . . . even if it means receiving more resistance from her all-male homicide squad.

But Rizzoli isn’t counting on the U.S. government’s sudden interest. Or on meeting Special Agent Gabriel Dean, who knows more than he will tell. Most of all, she isn’t counting on becoming a target herself, once Hoyt is suddenly free, joining his mysterious blood brother in a vicious vendetta. . . .

Filled with superbly created characters—and the medical and police procedural details that are her trademark—The Apprentice is Tess Gerritsen at her brilliant best. Set in a stunning world where evil is easy to learn and hard to end, this is a thriller by a master who could teach other authors a thing or two.

The Remnant – Christy Kenneally

The Remnant - Christy Kenneally
The Remnant – Christy Kenneally

The Pope is dying. In the catacombs of San Domatilla, far beneath the streets of Rome, a militant group of disaffected priests is urged to wage a new inquisition. As Father Michael Flaherty accepts a new appointment to the Vatican department run by African-American cardinal J. Arthur Thomas, he enters a state within a state, where priests vie for influence and power. A former U.S. Marine, Flaherty finds himself in a different kind of war—made all the more deadly because both sides wear the same uniform. In the shadow of the Pope’s final days, Michael Flaherty steps into the crosshairs of those who ruthlessly pursue the ultimate prize—the Church itself. They are the Remnant.

The Wire In The Blood – Val Mcdermid

The Wire In The Blood - Val Mcdermid
The Wire In The Blood – Val Mcdermid

Across the country, dozens of teenage girls have vanished. Authorities are convinced they’re runaways with just the bad luck of the draw to connect them. It’s the job of criminal profilers Dr. Tony Hill and Carol Jordan to look for a pattern. They’ve spent years exploring the psyches of madmen. But sane men kill, too. And when they hide in plain sight, they can be difficult to find…

He’s handsome and talented, rich and famous–a notorious charmer with the power to seduce…and the will to destroy. No one can believe what he’s capable of. No one can imagine what he’s already done. And no one can fathom what he’s about to do next. Until one of Hill’s students is murdered–the first move in a sick and violent game for three players. Now, of all the killers Hill and Jordan have hunted, none has been so ruthless, so terrifyingly clever, and so brilliantly elusive as the killer who’s hunting them…

Worth Dying For – Lee Child

Lee Child - Worth Dying For
Lee Child – Worth Dying For

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“Compulsively readable.”—The Wall Street Journal

“Don’t pick up [this] Jack Reacher novel if you don’t have some time on your hands, because Worth Dying For is difficult to put down. . . . Child manages to get an amazing amount of suspense into the novel.”—Associated Press

There’s deadly trouble in the corn county of Nebraska . . . and Jack Reacher walks right into it. First he falls foul of the Duncans, a local clan that has terrified an entire county into submission. But it’s the unsolved, decades-old case of a missing child that Reacher can’t let go.

The Duncans want Reacher gone—and it’s not just past secrets they’re trying to hide. For as dangerous as the Duncans are, they’re just the bottom of a criminal food chain stretching halfway around the world. For Reacher, it would have made much more sense to put some distance between himself and the hard-core trouble that’s bearing down on him. For Reacher, that was also impossible.

“A model of suspenseful storytelling and an outstanding addition to a series that stands in the front rank of modern thrillers.”—The Washington Post

“Still the thinking man’s action hero, supreme butt-kicker and smartest guy in the room.”—The Seattle Times

6 Things you MUST HAVE for a Blogshop/Online business in Singapore

In case you forget, or have known already, I decided to write it down to serve as a reminder for all. Comment on my post if you feel that there are other points to be listed, or other perspectives.

1) List Building –

Staying in touch with your prospects and customers is very important. And since every single person in the world has an email address and contact number, building an list is one of the cheapest, most cost-effective solution for doing that.

So when to start?

Right now! Start building your email list today.

You will need a database of contacts, a network of people so that the word gets out there fast. Without them, there will be no returning customers.

2) Content –

You will need well written content to get more customers coming back and for that, content is King. This should be the focus of the site. If there is no content worth reading or seeing on the site, then people will not bookmark and return to your site.

The “if you build it, they will come” saying works to a point, but people will still want to read and explore to understand your site better. These content can be in the form of writings, posting or graphic posters. Nonetheless, make sure content is never undercut in favor of other aspects of the digital campaign.

3) Generating Traffic –

Generating traffic is THE biggest obstacle online. Some businesses got to be so successful on the internet, while others are not. Their success did not come by luck, but it came by knowing how to market effectively on the internet.

Not to mention, shouting out on Facebook or twitter is another method too. But still, it is more efficient if you can market your blogshop well.

4) Google Ranking –

After learning how to generate traffic, it is necessary to learn how to generate traffic. It is true that for an online business, Google helps to direct traffic to your site.

Google PageRank, which is largely based upon the number and quality of backlinks a webpage has, is an important factor in how well a particular webpage ranks within the Google search results.

These can be googled easily by googling “Google Page ranking”. Click here to check your page ranking

5) Mass Traffic – 

Web traffic is the amount of data sent and received by visitors to a web site. Since the mid-1990s, web traffic has been the largest portion of Internet traffic.

Traffic is one of the most important elements in the success of your website. It won’t matter if you have the best website on the Internet if no one ever sees it!

Yet after learning to generate traffic, checking page ranking online, it is necessary to increase the traffic to such that there will be a massive traffic everyday.

Sales is a number game. If 10% of your visitors are your actual buyers, then more visitors is equivalent to more buyers isn’t it? 10% of 100 << 10% of 1000,000,000. Do the math. 🙂

 6) Referrals

This point is  extremely important. Without referrals, business will wither and die.

It is not the same as building a database as mentioned in point 1. These referrals could be people who bought from you, or people who communicated with you. It is very important to keep them close to you, so that they will return back for more purchases.

All in all always remember, doing up a blogshop or setting up an online business should be fun. It is a way of communication and networking with like-minded people who are also interested in the same product. Except this time around, you are talking to them as a seller and you are able to provide them with a service. How much your online business can provide you depends on how well your service is.

Good luck. ^ ^

The Last Juror – John Grisham

The Last Juror - John Grisham
The Last Juror – John Grisham

In 1970, Willie Traynor came to Clanton, Mississippi, in a Triumph Spitfire and a fog of vague ambitions. Within a year, the twenty-three-year-old found himself the owner of Ford County’s only newspaper, famous for its well-crafted obituaries. While the rest of America was in the grips of turmoil, Clanton lived on the edge of another age—until the brutal murder of a young mother rocked the town and thrust Willie into the center of a storm. Daring to report the true horrors of the crime, Willie made as many friends as enemies in Clanton, and over the next decade he would sometimes wonder how he had gotten there in the first place. But he could never escape the crime that had shattered his innocence or the criminal whose evil had left an indelible stain. Because as the ghosts of the South’s past gather around Willie, as tension swirls around Clanton, men and women who served on a jury nine years ago are starting to die one by one—as a killer exacts the ultimate revenge.

 Mr Nice - Howard Marks

Mr Nice – Howard Marks

During the mid 1980s Howard Marks had forty three aliases, eighty nine phone lines and owned twenty five companies throughout the world.

At the height of his career he was smuggling consignments of up to thirty tons of marijuana, and had contact with organisations as diverse as MI6, the CIA, the IRA and the Mafia. Following a worldwide operation by the Drug Enforcement Agency, he was busted and sentenced to twenty-five years in prison at the Terre Haute Penitentiary, Indiana. He was released in April 1995 after serving seven years of his sentence. Told with humour, charm and candour, Mr Nice is his own extraordinary story.
