"Are you an ethical person?" Regardless of your answer, a follow-up probe might be: "How do you know?" Your personal values reflect your beliefs, what you really care about. These values, if they really matter to you, are activated by and through your everyday decisions. How do you ensure that your values, those that reflect your best ethical self, are actually demonstrated in the choices you make on a daily basis? Sometimes what we say we value does not match our actual behavior. Being ethical requires the ability to discern and navigate competing values, continually striving to attain both personal and organizational goals with moral strength. This necessitates the development of skills that support personal governance and your moral competency. To be ethical, building moral strength needs to become a focus of your daily life, which calls for making a deliberate effort to apply the values you say you hold. In reading this book you will see how awareness of your thoughts and emotions-along with specific competencies-can influence your desire to do the right thing and bolster your ability to exercise professional moral courage at work. Drawing insight from the latest research in management, business ethics, organizational behavior, and psychology, this book is intended to help adult learners examine, leverage, and to continue to develop their best ethical selves in organizational life.

Book Seven of The Billionaire's Legacy
Why is retirement planning different for women? Women are completely comfortable talking about many "M-word" topics: their marriages, motherhood and their mothers, merlots and martinis, mammograms and menopause. But, bring up money and the conversations often screech to a halt. Ask how prepared a woman is for retirement and she can tell you the exact date when she wants to retire, but not how much money she'll need for a 30-year retirement. In this thought-provoking, but non-traditional, fun approach to planning for a woman's retirement, Marcia Mantell guides women through the key questions they'll need to answer before they will be prepared to retire. In What's the Deal with Retirement Planning for Women?, you'll get realistic perspectives on retirement in the new era, a treasure trove of resources to get started, and practical examples of how other women are dealing with redesigning and reinventing retirement. Ten key questions are discussed and you may be surprised by the answers! While no two women will have the same retirement or financial resources, there are common topics that each woman needs to address. While this book offers financial information, it also focuses on how to start defining your future years, how to use the skills of running your household to manage your retirement, and why doing what you love will continue to be a key activity in retirement. It also provides a critical overview into Social Security, which is often the foundation of income for most women in retirement. This book should help you feel more confident and empowered to own your own retirement and future. It will give you a terrific roadmap for how to plan for the future you deserve and help you to make your retirement the best time of your life!"

To talk about values and ideals is easy. To live them is much more difficult, because no one is perfect. Like all good things, it requires effort. At times we all fall short of our ideals and values. The question is: Do we have ideals and values? I hope this book will be used by individuals, families and schools as a starting point for discussing character ideals in personal development. Values and ideals are as important as any other subject taught in school because without them your other skills may bring little personal satisfaction. Although I've called this a book about values, it is really about personal happiness. Your happiness will come from the values and ideals you choose for yourself. If you choose wisely, your values will bring you strength and a foundation to build a satisfying life. Your values will shape your life. This book is not intended to "teach" you values and ideals. Family, culture and faith traditions may be the best teachers. Rather, it is intended to share with you values and ideals that men and women have respected as long as history has been recorded, and to encourage discussion about them.
