In the last few years everyone has become more and more curious about 3D printing. Slowly, this curiosity changed into new business ideas as entrepreneurs realized there is money to be made with the help of this emerging technology. If twenty years ago the personal computer changed the lives of average people, some years from now the 3D printing technology will probably do the same.

Until then, entrepreneurs who are thinking of starting a business in this field will find everything they need to know about 3D printing in Yoni Binstock’s book – “How to Become a 3D Printing Entrepreneur”.

In the Introduction, Yoni Binstock offers a brief history of this new, exciting technology, and tries to give a definition that would help readers understand exactly how it works. He compares it with the traditional method of creating objects, thus offering a clear view of what a 3D printer is and what it does. The author explains that the object is “printed” by a multi-dimensional process which adds layers upon layers which are placed on top of one another to form a 3D object. Also, he mentions all the types of 3D printing that are currently used, which he will later detail in the following chapters.

Each section of the book focuses on an important part of this technology and how it can be turned into a source of income in various ways. For instance, there is a chapter especially dedicated to designers, which covers software choices, expected salaries, and opportunities for freelancing. Yoni Binstock also offers advice on how to purchase a 3D printer, explaining the features of different models and listing the different objects they can print. At the end of the book, there is a list of over 50 resources readers can check to learn even more about 3D printing.

“Bloodlines – The Quest” by Jon McDonald

It doesn’t matter if you like vampire novels or not. You will love Jon McDonald’s novel “Bloodlines – The Quest” if you know how to appreciate a well-told story set apart by its fine satire and polished humor. This genre-bending book takes the vampire myth to a whole new level, juggling with the well-known clichés in a clever, unique way. Those who are already familiar with Jon McDonald’s work will see that he manages to make his readers laugh out loud even when he’s writing horror.

The small town of Brampton, Ohio is terrorized by a cold-blooded killer with a mysterious agenda. Because of these terrible murders, the people of Brampton find out that there is a vampire colony that is hiding among them. These vampires, however, are not dangerous in the least because they are still half-human and they only feed on animal blood. They are also called “night sleepers” or “mutants”, and some of them are respectable citizens who have done Brampton a lot of good. But, if the mutants are not responsible for the murders, does this mean there’s a pure vampire on the loose?

Volter is a renegade European vampire who is determined to turn the people of Brampton against the mutants in order to eliminate all of them. This “day sleeper” is cruel, vicious, and he will stop at nothing to reach his goal. What does he have against the mutants? The idea that they are not real vampires who feed on human blood is unacceptable to him. Volter has to kill them all and then make sure that only pure vampires are left in the world. What he doesn’t expect is for the humans to help the mutants get rid of him.

“Bloodlines – The Quest” is a fun, compelling read. Even though it has some very descriptive scenes, they are balanced out by humorous, lighthearted parts. The characters are well-developed, and the way they interact is sometimes so funny that readers will forget about Volter and his gruesome acts. Jon McDonald brings his own contribution to the vampire myth by playing a bit with how a vampire can be killed. It seems that in his universe vampires can regenerate from the smallest portion of cellular tissue, and that’s why the humans and mutants have to come up with a very good plan to destroy Volter completely.

“The Psychology of Change” by Cyle Chapman – Free on Amazon on September 30

Life Coach and Faith-Based Therapist Cyle Chapman has figured out what makes people give up so easily on their plans, and he explains everything in his book, “The Psychology of Change”. After years of working with different people who were trying to make various changes in their lives, he understood that the reason for which most of them didn’t succeed was that they forgot to change one important aspect: their mindset.

To be able to start a new life you have to make sure that you are ready for it. Too often we overlook the fact that it won’t be possible for us to live in the new context that we have created for ourselves having the same thought patterns and behaviors we had before we made the change. Our mind is a powerful tool, but it can also become our greatest enemy if we do not learn how to control our thoughts and attitudes. This is why Cyle Chapman decided to write this guide. His goal is to explain to his readers exactly how the human mind works and how their behavior can lead them to failure. He helps people come to their own understanding of their own mind, and then he offers them the methods and techniques that will help them change exactly what needs to be changed in order to achieve success.

Those who are currently going through a process of change will gain a lot of insight into what this process truly implies. After reading Chapman’s book, they will be able to identify the thought patterns that kept pulling them back. The whole process of change will become more focused and more effective, which means that people will see results more quickly and will realize that they are on the right path and that their dream is achievable.

“The Psychology of Change” has just been released, and it will be on promotion on Amazon on September 30, 2014. You will have the opportunity to download it for free, so make sure you mark the date in your calendar.

“The Millionaire Within Us” by Chris Carley

Sometimes life can be terribly unfair, throwing at us problems and obstacles that are too heavy to carry. There are people who give up, thinking that, for some reason, they don’t deserve to be happy or successful. Fortunately, however, there are more and more people who refuse to let themselves defeated, and fight until they reach their goals. They might fail once or twice, but, eventually, they prove that if you believe in your dream and never give up fighting, you obtain the success, money, and happiness you’ve always wanted. Chris Carley is one of these people.

In 1987, Chris Carley was living a nightmare. She was working the Grave Yard night shift, which involved moving heavy tools and breathing in toxic air because the equipment she was given was almost worthless. And all that for $10.50 an hour, from which she also had to pay her taxes. When she was fired, she didn’t know if that was a good thing or a bad thing. What she did know was that she had to come up with a plan. At that moment she had terrible health issues, low self-esteem, and no idea what she was supposed to do next. So, Chris took a loan of $79 from her father and started a business in network marketing.

“The Millionaire Within Us” is the inspirational story of Chris Carley, but, make no mistake, it is not a book that will teach you how to become rich overnight. That kind of magic does not exist. Chris Carley failed a couple of times before she started seeing the results of her hard work. Even worse, for a long time people didn’t believe in her. She didn’t have the support of family and friends, so she also had to fight a battle with her own negative thoughts and low self-esteem. Every time she failed she knew that she had to get up by herself and keep trying, because no one would ever help her accomplish her dreams.

When she started on her journey to success, Chris Carley had a $30,000 debt. Now she is a millionaire and she wants to teach all those who are willing to learn how to make it in network marketing, a niche that few people truly understand. “The Millionaire Within Us” is filled with great advice, principles, techniques, and tips that can help anyone become a marketing expert. Her personal story is very motivational, especially because it is written in a simple, humble style, thus showing that financial success didn’t change Chris Carley in the least. This also sends an important message: people should never let themselves changed by success, they should simply keep working and then helping others by showing them the right path.

“The Millionaire Within Us” can be found on Amazon.
