Finally, a groundbreaking book that reveals what your dyslexic child is experiencing—and what you can do so that he or she will thrive More than thirty million people in the United States are dyslexic—a brain-based genetic trait, often labeled as a “learning disability” or “learning difference,” that makes interpreting text and reading difficult. Yet even though children with dyslexia may have trouble reading, they don’t have any problems learning; dyslexia has nothing to do with a lack of intellect. While other books tell you what dyslexia is, this book tells you what to do. Dyslexics’ innate skills, which may include verbal, social, spatial, kinesthetic, visual, mathematical, or musical abilities, are their unique key to acquiring knowledge. Figuring out where their individual strengths lie, and then harnessing these skills, offers an entrée into learning and excelling. And by keeping the focus on learning, not on standard reading the same way everyone else does, a child with dyslexia can and will develop the self-confidence to flourish in the classroom and beyond. After years of battling with a school system that did not understand his dyslexia and the shame that accompanied it, renowned activist and entrepreneur Ben Foss is not only open about his dyslexia, he is proud of it. In The Dyslexia Empowerment Plan he shares his personal triumphs and failures so that you can learn from his experiences, and provides a three-step approach for success: • Identify your child’s profile: By mapping your child’s strengths and weaknesses and assisting her to better understand who she is, you can help your child move away from shame and feelings of inadequacy and move toward creating a powerful program for learning. • Help your child help himself: Coach your child to become his own best advocate by developing resiliency, confidence, and self-awareness, and focusing on achievable goals in areas that matter most to him. • Create community: Dyslexic children are not broken, but too often the system designed to educate them is. Dare to change your school so that your child has the resources to thrive. Understanding your rights and finding allies will make you and your child feel connected and no longer alone. Packed with practical ideas and strategies dyslexic children need for excelling in school and in life, this empowering guide provides the framework for charting a future for your child that is bright with hope and unlimited potential. Praise for The Dyslexia Empowerment Plan “A passionate and well-articulated guide . . . This extremely practical and motivational book will be welcomed by parents of dyslexic children.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) “Accessible and reassuring.”—Library Journal “This step-by-step guide will become a go-to resource for parents.”—James H. Wendorf, executive director, National Center for Learning Disabilities “I study dyslexia in the lab and am a parent of a wonderful daughter who fits this profile. Ben Foss’s book should be considered essential to any collection on the subject. It was extremely useful, especially for a mom.”—Maria Luisa Gorno Tempini, M.D., Ph.D., professor of neurology, UCSF, Memory and Aging Center “As someone with a learning profile that made school tough, and as a parent, I know kids need the right support. Ben Foss knows how to get access to education because he’s been through it. I was thrilled to read this book. It offers a wise collection of insights that are both practical and touching.”—James Gandolfini, actor, The Sopranos

Most educational systems do not take into account the special needs of dyslexic children. Parents are not given the knowledge or tools to help.I wrote this book to give hope to parents of dyslexic children. People with dyslexia can succeed with the right mentors. I am living proof and I am not finished yet. Please e-mail me at [email protected] and I will be happy to converse with you or come to your location and speak to your audience about how I succeed with Dyslexia and how I dream of changing the world. I look forward to sharing the hope with your group.I also wrote this book to show there are other forms of experiential training and education available, especially if one is receptive to them. College degrees are not always necessary.From the challenges of having dyslexia, being bullied, and the loss of my child; these issues weighed my whole being down. I held these events and issues deep in my tissues. Once I let events of the past go, forgave others and believed in myself, I started to shine as the exceptional human being I have always been. I am confident, I am successful, and I am beautiful. It is my desire to help change the world so it will be a better place for myself, others, and future generations. My goals are lofty and previously would not have ever been contemplated.We have a great team in our business and that allows us to take ten or more vacation weeks per year. This also enables us to pursue our passions: art, authoring, mentoring others, and reconnecting children and adults with nature.There is a successful person lurking in your body; you just have not discovered the courage or the knowledge to summon her/him. The possibilities are endless if you open up to them.

The secret to sustainable competitive advantage for large organizations in the changing business environment is not simply lowering costs or restructuring for efficiency. Companies need to be adaptable, flexible, speedy, creative, innovative and opportunistic. In short, they need to act in an entrepreneurial manner. Corporate Entrepreneurship is about the ability of a large organization to make the most of commercial opportunities, to innovate, to do things differently. It is about developing an organizational and strategic capability to not just manage change, but to embrace and action it. Paul Burns' innovative text considers the personal qualities of successful entrepreneurs and the manner in which they do business. He then demonstrates how these qualities can be replicated to form an organizational architecture that encourages entrepreneurship at all levels within a company. Corporate Entrepreneurship pulls together many themes (from leadership, culture, creativity, innovation, strategy, and marketing) in a coherent and accessible form.

How would you like to get business startup advice straight from the man who co-founded Global Entrepreneurship Week and StartUp America? Well now you can. Carl Schramm, the man described by The Economist as 'The Evangelist of Entrepreneurship', has written a myth-busting guide packed with tools and techniques to help you get your big idea off the ground. Carl believes that entrepreneurship has been completely misrepresented by the media, business books, university programmes and MBA courses. He believes that the perception of what it takes to start a business no longer matches the reality - which is bad news for everyone because it stops great ideas coming to life. Burn the Business Plan punctures the myth of the cool, tech-savvy 20-something entrepreneur with nothing to lose and venture capital to burn, showing that most people who start businesses are juggling careers and mortgages just like you. Burn the Business Plan is written to encourage you to get started. It demystifies the entrepreneurial process portrayed on television shows like Dragon's Den. It doesn't rely on largely irrelevant stories of overvalued tech startups, nor does it build on the largely mistaken narrative of a linear path from cold start to great success that is the essence of business planning, as taught in universities. This is the guide to starting and running a business that will actually work for the rest of us. Burn the Business Plan is for regular people who just want practical, real-world advice on how to start and run a successful business. It shows you how to avoid the common mistakes and what you need to do to put your enterprise on track for success.
