Hollywood produces its on-screen heroes to take crucial steps to achieve their goals, and often against all odds. These same principles can be applied to anything you are seeking to accomplish or improve in your own story or life. Recognizing and following these proven and tested, cinematic stages of the hero´s transformation will help you exponentially upgrade your process, mindset, awareness, and ultimately fine-tune your purpose. Produce Yourself compares the journey in all of us with that of our favorite heroes from movies and television. From developing better habits to improving finances; from starting a business to learning real estate strategies; from improving relationships to co-worker dynamics; from making days more effectual and distraction-free to harnessing the power of mindset; from improving health and diet to accessing the power of play; this book helps find and multiply your ´´why´´ - why you are on your current journey and how to optimize it. If you´re an entrepreneur, self-employed, or simply want a better, more successful and happy life, this book is for you. It´s for anyone who wants to understand the journey of their inner hero and apply the same, time-tested formula to their own life. Using scholar Joseph Campbell and writer Christopher Vogler´s iconic stages of the Hero´s Journey, Terence Michael exposes his own Hollywood trajectory to share lessons and principles you can apply to your own process and approach. What is your story? Are you the hero? Or just a supporting character? You are the producer of you. This book helps you find the tools to change, upgrade, or completely rewrite your story. You can Produce Yourself just like a Hollywood producer produces a star to overcome obstacles, turn failures into opportunity, and bring the elixir home. Terence Michael has collaborated with many artists and brands in his films and TV shows. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Terence Michael.

From Jessica Knoll - author of Luckiest Girl Alive, the instant New York Times best seller and the best-selling debut novel of 2015 - comes a blisteringly paced thriller starring competitive sisters whose dark secrets and lies result in murder when they sign on to a reality TV show. When five hypersuccessful women agree to appear on a reality series set in New York City called Goal Diggers, the producers never expect the season will end in murder.... Brett´s the fan favorite. Tattooed and only 27, the meteoric success of her spin studio - and her recent engagement to her girlfriend - has made her the object of jealousy and vitriol from her castmates. Kelly, Brett´s older sister and business partner, is the most recent recruit, dismissed as a hanger-on by veteran cast. The golden child growing up, she defers to Brett now - a role that requires her to protect their shocking secret. Stephanie, the first black cast member and the oldest, is a successful best-selling author of erotic novels. There have long been whispers about her hot, nonworking actor-husband and his wandering eye, but this season the focus is on the rift that has opened between her and Brett, former best friends - and resentment soon breeds contempt. Lauren, the start-up world´s darling whose drinking has gotten out of control, is Goal Diggers´ recovery narrative - everyone loves a comeback story. And Jen, made rich and famous through her cultishly popular vegan food line plays a holistic hippie for the cameras but is perhaps the most ruthless of them all when the cameras are off. The Favorite Sister explores the invisible barriers that prevent women from rising up the ranks in today´s America - and offers a scathing take on the oft-lionized bonds of sisterhood and the relentless pressure to stay young, relevant, and salable. 1.

Brandon Campbell needs two things in life: to prove he’s over his ex and to hire an actress for a hometown project. When he finds the perfect woman for the role, things couldn’t be better. She needs money to support her and her soon-to-be born baby and he needs to fill that role yesterday. After Eva Bishop’s last Broadway play flopped, she spent her last dime to make sure all her debts were paid before her baby is born. Now, it’s time for a major change, and what better way to start than by accepting a role from a hot Hollywood producer, even if he also happens to be a guy from high school who knows all her lifelong-secrets. With the holidays just around the corner and a baby on the way, will their collaboration help them heal from old wounds and find love or will it turn out to be another horrible decision for both? While this story is a standalone novel that belongs to the Marshall Family Saga, there are mentions of the House of Morgan, the Hawke Fortune, and even Princes of Avce characters and storylines, which are all intertwined in the same world. 1.

Instant New York Times Best SellerThe first definitive, unauthorized, behind-the-scenes cultural history of the Bachelor franchise, America´s favorite guilty pleasure.For 15 years and 35 seasons, the Bachelor franchise has been a mainstay in American TV viewers´ lives. Since it premiered in 2002, the show´s popularity and relevance has only grown - more than eight million viewers tuned in to see the conclusion of the most recent season of The Bachelor.The iconic reality television show´s reach and influence into the cultural zeitgeist is undeniable. Best-selling writers and famous actors live tweet about it. Die-hard fans - dubbed ´´Bachelor Nation´´ - come together every week during each season to participate in fantasy leagues and viewing parties.Bachelor Nation is the first behind-the-scenes, unauthorized look into the reality television phenomenon. Los Angeles Times journalist Amy Kaufman is a proud member of Bachelor Nation and has a long history with the franchise - ABC even banned her from attending show events after her coverage of the program got a little too real for its liking. She has interviewed dozens of producers, contestants, and celebrity fans to give readers never-before-told details of the show´s inner workings: what it´s like to be trapped in the mansion ´´bubble´´; dark, juicy tales of producer manipulation; and revelations about the alcohol-fueled debauchery that occurs long before the fantasy suite.Kaufman also explores what our fascination means, culturally: what the show says about the way we view so-called ideal suitors, our subconscious yearning for fairy-tale romance, and how this enduring television show has shaped society´s feelings about love, marriage, and feminism by appealing to a marriage plot that´s as old as Jane Austen. 1.
