His father disowns him and sends him into exile with a sizable amount of money he can waste or use to make a life for himself. He comes to California where he discovers a small fishing village with an abundant harvest of sardines. The fishermen make very little money off the catch, since most of the profits go to the canneries in Monterey. Determined to build a cannery there, Owen goes to Monterey to learn the business. After a year of working in one of the canneries, he returns and builds his own cannery which brings him enormous wealth. Ruthlessly, he forces all the town's businesses to share their profits with him. In complete control of the town, he builds other businesses, including a notorious brothel.

Full ImagePreview ImageValues, Inc.: How Incorporating Values into Business and Life Can Change the World by Dina Dwyer-Owens | BookBaby Bookshophttps://store.bookbaby.com/book/values,-incIt's been said that 95 percent of companies that have a code of values don't even use them. Sad, but true. There are companies, too many to count, that spend countless hours and even countless dollars with experts to brainstorm their mission, vision, and values, write them down, hang them on the wall...and then walk away. While these things look good on paper, they mean nothing to the day-to-day functions of these businesses and the people they employ. And that's a tragedy that needs to stop. When The Dwyer Group decided to operationalize its company code of values, little did we know the impact it would have on our business. Not only was the change tangible and real, shaping our business from the corner office to the front lines of our service brands around the world. But it also made our company a really fun place to work on a whole new level. We were attracting people to our home office and across our franchise service brands like never before. The Dwyer Group Code of Values brought real value to our company and our culture as we became a $1 billion annual business systemwide. Fast forward to this book and a desire to see more companies, more leaders, more people, and the world-at-large achieve success that is well within reach using values and bringing value to the lives of all they touch. Values, Inc. invites a movement to live right and do right in business and in life for a world in need of direction. That direction shouldn't just be framed and hung on a wall. Put those values into action, bring those values to life, take a stand and make a difference. The rewards are too great to ignore.eBook

Full ImagePreview ImageMeeting God in the Upper Room: Three Moments to Change Your Life by Monsignor Peter J. Vaghi | BookBaby Bookshophttps://store.bookbaby.com/book/meeting-god-in-the-upper-roomRecalling his own Holy Land pilgrimage experience, Monsignor Peter Vaghi explores three significant events in the life of the early Church that can be traced back to the Upper Room in Jerusalem (sometimes called the Cenacle) in order to guide us to a deeper appreciation and understanding of living the Christian life in prayer, worship and service. Each of the book's three parts is dedicated to one of these key moments in the history of our faith: the Last Supper and the institution of the Eucharist, the post-resurrection appearances of Christ to his followers, and the Holy Spirit descending on the apostles at Pentecost. The walk with the Lord is a continued encounter with Him in the power of Holy Spirit. In Meeting God in the Upper Room, Monsignor Vaghi captures the various integral ways in which we continue in our day to meet the Risen Lord—in the sacraments; in our prayer lives; in our profession of Easter faith; in our works of charity and service; in our devotion to Mary, Mother of the Church and our Mother; in the experience of the gifts of the Holy Spirit; in the call to evangelize and our efforts to evangelize in our own day—in our homes, workplaces, places of leisure, in our travel. All of these make up the rich and continued spiritual legacy of that Upper Room and what happened there. In writing about the Upper Room, Monsignor Vaghi tells of not just its historical significance, but its profound spiritual significance. It was there that Christ and his disciples retreated from the world in order to teach and learn, respectively, how they could carry on the faith. And as we set aside time to enter the Upper Room of our own life, we discover that Jesus is waiting to meet us there as well.eBook

Full ImagePreview ImageFranciscan Wisdom: The Essential Teachings of Saint Francis of Assisi by Saint Francis of Assisi | BookBaby Bookshophttps://store.bookbaby.com/book/franciscan-wisdomWhat does the world need? Truth, beauty, goodness, and light. Fill your life with these and spread them wherever you go. Franciscan Wisdom is full of inspirational quotes by famous Franciscans exploring these themes. Most holy people live in plain sight. We cross paths with them every day. They will never be recognized officially as saints, and they prefer that. Most of them lived quiet, diligent lives, dedicated to serving other people. They became extraordinary people by repeatedly doing the ordinary things with great love. There's nothing more attractive than holiness. Francis of Assisi stands as a singular example of this piercing truth. This man and his life are universally intriguing and attractive. For eight hundred years, he has been loved and respected by men and women of all faiths, and those of no faith. His holiness crosses the bounds of religion and prejudice. Our lives become animated by faith when we discover once and for all that we too can walk that path. Holiness is possible. Not just for people in far-off places and times, but you and me, here and now. And not only is holiness possible but it is needed. Are you ready to be holy? It is an invitation to wholeness. It is a radical invitation to everything you yearn for that you don't know you need and want. An invitation to find your best, truest, highest, and most authentic self in Jesus.eBook
