Plastics, Book Excerpts & Creative Workplace Tips

-- Conscious Discussions Talk Radio --

Do you love your job? Recent Gallup polls show most Americans don't, and yet 98% of U.S. Cellular employers not only say they love their jobs but report that their jobs actually make them better spouses, parents, and citizens. Today’s featured guests, Myra Kruger & Dave Esler, have studied this issue thoroughly and are here today to share their knowledge, tips and resources with you. Learn how to create a competitive advantage, how to relate to others and much more on today's Conscious Discussions Talk Radio episode: Create a Positive & Productive Workplace

-- Great Tool For Authors --

I was invited by the owner of Bookbuzzer to join their site and promote my books using their tools. I flagged her email and then proceeded with the huge list of to-do's in the office for a couple of weeks. She sent me a reminder and I decided to try it out today.

Man, oh man - I love it! What a fun and interesting way to promote the book...

How it works is this, you create a 160X160 px jpg of your cover and an excerpt of the book in pdf format for each book you want to promote in this way.

The program takes this information, along with other information you are prompted to enter, such as why you wrote the book and the synopsis, etc. - and makes a virtual sample of your work in a virtual book format!

Really - you see pages & they turn with a click of a mouse... it is really cool.

Check out the two that Dave and I created yesterday afternoon on my site:

We plan on creating one for each of the upcoming Trash Talk - Its Easy Being Green e-book series.

And if you like what I have done, or are curious as to what you might want to do, check out the site:

Preserve Gimme 5 promotes and enables recycling of #5 plastics like yogurt cups, hummus tubs and other food containers.

Products packaged in #5 plastic are sold widely, but #5 is not recycled in most communities. By recycling your #5 plastic through the Gimme 5 program, you are saving plastic from being sent to landfills, keeping the plastic local by recycling it here in the USA, and you are powering Preserve by helping us transform your recyclables into new Preserve products.

Send #5 plastic shipments to:

Preserve Gimme 5
