Red Stevens was a self-made man who gave his family everything-and ruined them in the process. Now, as his estate of oil companies
and cattle ranches is divided among greedy and self-serving
relatives, one member is singled out for something special: Red's
In a darkened room, isolated from the rest of his family, Jason
is confronted by the image of his deceased great uncle on a video
monitor...and so begins a 12-month quest for purpose and meaning in
an empty life, as Jason attempts to complete the tasks required to
receive Red Stevens' greatest bequest...The Ultimate Gift.

|The Ultimate Life
When Jason Stevens found out he had to learn twelve lessons to maybe get
an unnamed inheritance from his billionaire grandfather, he was not
amused. By the time he'd finished learning the imposed lessons, he'd
become a different man. Ready to tackle the duties of running a
multi-billion-dollar trust, his plans for the year are once again
derailed, this time by his pugnacious family. Not content with their
cattle ranches and oil fields, his aunts, uncles and even his mother
are determined to see every last dime entrusted to their own
self-serving pockets. With none of the reluctance he initially
showed for the The Ultimate Gift, he eagerly accepts the
challenge and pushes himself to prove not only to his family and the
court but the world, that with determination and the simple tenets
of The Ultimate Gift, anyone can lead The Ultimate
Life. Sequel to The Ultimate Gift.

|The Ultimate Financial
From Jim Stovall, author of the bestselling The Ultimate Gift
and The Ultimate Life, and financial planning expert, Tim
Maurer, comes the latest volume in the acclaimed Ultimate series..
Like its predecessors, The Ultimate Financial Plan:
Balancing Your Money and Life is sure to have a
significant impact on the way we think about money. Examining
the connection between actions, thoughts, and feelings when it comes
to all things financial, the book makes a revolutionary argument:
that the key to getting the most out of personal wealth comes from
the contentment found in balancing the influence of money in our
lives with personal values and goals..
"The Ultimate Financial Plan deals
with less tangible matters. While it covers most of the
traditional topics found in a personal finance book, it really isn’t
one.…to their credit, the writers—Jim Stovall, an inspirational
speaker and author, and Tim Maurer, a financial planner—say up front
that they are not writing the usual personal finance book.
Their goal is to help you decide where money fits into your life.”

The Intersection of MONEY and LIFE. There are an endless
number of books that tell you what to do with your money. There are
even more books that tell you how to, and how not to, live. Why is
it that these two things that are so inseparable, money and life,
are only addressed separately? This book addresses the intersection
of the two. This is not another financial how-to book, nor is it a
collection of philosophical rambling that is hard to apply to daily
life. It is the Timeless Truths of personal finance. Many of these
have been forgotten, destining so many into financial hardship, but
they are the essential foundations for your successful financial

|100 Worst Bosses
A great boss provides leadership, direction,
critique, and a positive example which allows each employee to
fulfill their potential while serving the organization. A bad boss
would be one who fails in at least one of these areas, but to be
immortalized as one of the worst bosses, you’ve got to create an
environment so toxic that none of these elements are present or they
are overshadowed by the deficiencies to such an extent that
employees are unable to approach their potential or even function.
In 100 Worst Bosses, Jim Stovall will show
you how to learn from the very worst how to be your very best.
Foreword by Steve Forbes
A customized guide to discovering
your personal path to success.
Productivity provides the practical tools needed for personal and
corporate achievement. It’s very evident that the writer, Jim
Stovall, has achieved a great deal of success in his own life, and
he is passing the baton to everyone who will take the time to read
and put into practice the principles in his book. I
incorporate these principles in my CPA business every day, and I
think this book would be very beneficial to anyone in business.
I also think the Ultimate Productivity Profile online is very
helpful in identifying internal and external factors that cause us
and those we work with to achieve peak performance.”
- Beth Burkeen, CPA
“The book completely changed my life.
Shortly after reading, I was promoted to General Manager in our
stores. I don’t think it was a coincidence because the book
magically turned on a switch inside of me. I want to read it
again, and I use your on-line profile test to get to know my people
and what motivates them.” - Daryl Shuck

reign, the king longs to leave a lasting legacy for his people. He

larger-than-life statues. But then the king has a remarkable idea:
To discover the most profound words of wisdom in the world. So the
king invites citizens from all walks of life and all corners of the
realm to share with him the best of their life lessons. Yet as the

|Wisdom of the Ages
What is the Wisdom of the Ages?
Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there was an enchanted
kingdom ruled by a benevolent and much-loved king who, through his
uncommon wisdom and insights, led his people through many difficult
times to a period of peace, prosperity and happiness such as the
kingdom had never known..
Now nearing the end of his reign, the king contemplates his legacy.
What would be a fitting memorial to his time on the throne? A
monument to rival the pyramids of Egypt? A gold coin bearing his
likeness? A colossal statue carved in his image? No. Such an
enlightened ruler would choose a very different kind of memorial...
From the far corners of the realm, ordinary citizens are invited to
the Throne Room to express the greatest wisdom that life has taught
them. Farmers and physicians, hunters and historians, jesters and
judges--all come before the monarch. From the wisdom that they
share, the king will select that one bit that surpasses all the
others, wisdom that will be passed around the world, wisdom that
will benefit all people from all lands, forever: the Wisdom of the
But as the king hears from more and more of his subjects, he becomes
worried and restless. From so much profound and wonderful wisdom,
how will he discern the Wisdom of the Ages? How will he know when he
has found it? The answer comes in a form that no one, from the king
to the lowliest peasant, could expect, for the greatest wisdom comes
from the most unexpected of places...
