Why wait to build the life you've always dreamed of?

Running your life is very much like running a business, and People Tools for Business is filled with practical ideas to help you run your life more effectively and efficiently.

WHAT ARE PEOPLE TOOLS?

"People Tools" are practical life skills that are easy to understand. They are free to use and yet they will significantly improve your ability to work well with other people. From developing self-confidence, to making healthier life decisions to being a better manager, each tool provides a straightforward approach to help you get more effective results.

Filled with insightful examples and entertaining anecdotes, People Tools is fun to read but will have long-lasting impact. The stories will charm you; the advice will change your life.

TAKE CONTROL: YOU ARE THE SOLE PROPRIETOR OF YOUR OWN LIFE.

The time-tested tools outlined in this book are useful shortcuts that you can use to solve everyday problems. You will find the advice applicable not only to business but to all aspects of your personal life as well.

He has built a commercial real estate company worth more than $1.5 billion, launched a nationally renowned poetry journal, and established a foundation that provides millions in funding to non-profit organizations that work with young people.

Fox is a die-hard optimist, and his enthusiasm, good humor, and belief that all situations can improve for the better carries over into this sequel to the bestselling People Tools. Designed to appeal to people at all levels of business, from student to manager to retiree, this guide to constant self-improvement urges readers up the "glass staircase." A play on the "glass ceiling," this phrase refers to steps which any person can take to reach the top. The five stairs are Confidence, Home, Education, Assertiveness, and Passion - CHEAP. The book's concept is a toolbox, comprising 50 "people tools" that will help readers achieve more in business and life. Illustrating his points with entertaining stories from his own life, Fox encourages readers to adopt tools such as "advertise your mistakes," "don't run out of cash," "be a contrarian", don't try to be right all the time, and focus on the future. The tone is homey but not condescending, and the mix of practical, emotional and behavioral tools make this a guide likely to inspire across the board. "You are the sole proprietor of your own life," proclaims Fox - and it's hard to imagine the reader who wouldn't respond to this upbeat message. (Sept.)
