Hardcover: $20

The Ultimate Gift

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 great-nephew, Jason. 

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.

"A wonderful story. Needed wisdom for young and old alike.  Written by one of the most extraordinary men of our era."
- Steve Forbes, President, CEO and Editor-In-Chief of Forbes Magazine

 

 

 

The Ultimate Life

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 Plan
Hardcover: $25
The Ultimate Financial Plan 

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.”  ~ Paul B. Brown, New York Times

The Financial Crossroads
Hardcover: $25
The Financial Crossroads 



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 future.

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.

Jim Stovall has created another epic masterpiece destined for the silver screen.  Keeper of the Flame will explode in the theater of your mind causing you to think like you never have and live like you never thought you could.

Wisdom of the Ages
Hardcover: $15
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 Ages.

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...
