To be honest, I was never that good at them. He lent me his ears. I believe that when you listen to music, it gives you this periphery of great stuff in your ears and then when you sit down to make music of your own, those are your teachers, those are your guiding forces.
As a kid, he represented everything that I really loved about music: he had all the chops, he had all the chords, he had all the funky stuff, all the groove, but then had that voice and behind the voice, he had this soul and feelings, and he also had this sense of humor mixed with this humanity.

No shame. The United States of America's national parks have been inspiring artists even before they were officially declared national parks. That goes not just for American artists such as the master landscape photographer Ansel Adams , but foreign artists as well. Take the Austrian painter Heinrich C. Berann found his way to cartography after winning a competition to paint a map of Austria's Grossglockner High Alpine Road, which opened in , a couple years after Berann's graduation from art school.
Just a few years ago, U. National Park Service senior cartographer Tom Patterson got to work on scanning the artworks in high resolution. When the project was complete, "the National Park Service released the new images on their newly redesigned online map portal , which also has more than a thousand maps that are freely available for the public to download. Berann's painting of Denali National Park just above was his final work before retirement. It came at the end of a long and varied career in art that saw him paint not just the Alps, the Himalayas, the Virgin Islands, and the floor of the Pacific Ocean as well as other impressive parts of the world under commission from the National Geographic society and six different Olympic Games but travel posters and drawings of everything from landscapes to portraits to nudes.
But it is Berann's panoramic paintings of America's national parks, which you can download in high resolution here , that have done the most to make people see their subjects in a new way. Not least because, with an artistic sleight-of-hand that combines as many landmarks as possible into single vistas rendered with a strikingly wide range of colors, Berann provides them a series of vantage points entirely unavailable in real life. In one sense, these are all real national parks, but they're national parks captured in a way even Ansel Adams never could have done. National Parks. Download , Photos of 20 Great U.

Even if I were something else and not a musician, I would say that I owe him everything. Many people have said similar things over the years about John Lennon or George Harrison, but an unassuming acoustic crooner singing in Portuguese? Could he really have that kind of cultural sway worldwide? Bossa nova provided a counterpoint to the raw energy of American and British rock, but not in the comforting, nostalgic way of soft, soporific music like that of Lawrence Welk.
Rather—partly through its influence on jazz musicians like Getz, Dizzy Gillespie, and Charlie Byrd—bossa nova became its own kind of hip popular idiom, cool instead of hot, but still sexy and new. Bossa nova was subdued and subtle, a sound created for small spaces and small moves. It is the sound of seaside resort hotels and upscale nightclubs, of yacht parties, art galleries, and penthouse apartments.

A marketing and business genius, Gary had the foresight to go beyond traditional methods and use social media tools such as Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube to reach an untapped audience that continues to grow. Extreme success, by definition, lies beyond the realm of normal action. You need to remove luck and chance from your business equation, and lock in massive success. The 10X Rule shows you how! This expanded edition includes dozens of practical tips and case studies from readers who have doubled their income, overcome common sticking points, and reinvented themselves using the original book.
Also included are templates for eliminating email and negotiating with bosses and clients, how to apply lifestyle principles in unpredictable economic times, and the latest tools, tricks, and shortcuts for living like a diplomat or millionaire without being either. Now is the time to turn your hobby or passion into a career - here is a guide to taking an obsession you have and learning how to make your living from doing it. The author of the original book teaches people that anything you dream can become a business. Unlike many business owners and top influencers, Gary Vaynerchuk advises not to measure your success based on how much money you make, but by how happy you are with your work.
Disclaimer: This is NOT the original book. The Third Circle Theory is the theory that the founder of Secret Entourage created to explain how visionaries are made and billion dollar ideas born from nothing more than your observations. The theory which has proven to be the same for all the successful individuals who have not only found their purpose in life but have executed on their beliefs, and as a result established themselves as successful innovators, explorers, educators, and entrepreneurs is now clearly defined and will teach you how to live successfully.
During economic contractions, it becomes much more difficult to sell your products, maintain your customer base, and gain market share. Mistakes become more costly, and failure becomes a real possibility for all those who are not able to make the transition. But imagine being able to sell your products when others cannot, being able to take market share from your competitors, and knowing the precise formulas that would allow you to expand your sales while others make excuses. With the increasingly unreliable nature of even the most stalwart corporate job, more and more people are looking for a reliable way to ensure they can support themselves and their families come what may.
The beauty of affiliate marketing is that you don't have to invest the time and effort to create a product to sell. After interviewing 50 of the world's greatest financial minds and penning the number-one New York Times best seller Money: Master the Game , Tony Robbins returns with a step-by-step playbook, taking you on a journey to transform your financial life and accelerate your path to financial freedom.
No matter your salary, your stage of life, or when you started, this book will provide the tools to help you achieve your financial goals more rapidly than you ever thought possible. The truth is we all experience the occasional down moments. This way, we can cut short our learning curve by years or more, depending on how effectively we absorb the valuable knowledge and wisdom.
Whether it's selling your company's product in the boardroom or selling yourself on eating healthy, everything in life can and should be treated as a sale. And as sales expert Grant Cardone explains, knowing the principles of selling is a prerequisite for success of any kind. In Sell or Be Sold, Cardone breaks down the techniques and approaches necessary to master the art of selling in any avenue. We're in the middle of an epidemic of average. So-called "normal" people get up every day, go to work, do what's asked of them, leave promptly at five, and return home to sit on the couch and watch TV.
Society tells us that this is what it means to lead a balanced life. Don't stress too much or work too hard. Your career isn't everything. But Grant Cardone thinks this preoccupation with balance has really just given an excuse to be mediocre.

Step by step, Crush It! I'm a big fan of Gary V, but this book is now part of history of the Internet. Most of the things you learn in this book can easily be found anywhere with a simple Google search. I know that for those who need that motivation, this is a good thing, but for those who already understand the concept of working hard for your passion, it just gets annoying to hear every few sentences the same thing over again.
Also, why does he tell us at the beginning of the book that "loving your family" is one of the 3 components to success?

That's one of his own personal values, not a universal principle of success. With all that being said, I think that if you are a noob, and have no idea how to get into branding and social media, this book is a great place to start, but then again you could just search the Gary V engine on his website and find all the info you need, or read one of his more recent books for up to date information. In conclusion, I still think Gary is an awesome dude with so much value to offer, but this book is just a relic of ancient times.
The author is obviously passionate about the topic, but I got tired of the high-school-teenager-style of writing. But the reason for my low review isn't because of the author's verbage. It's because, like many business books, it just didn't leave me with any real insight as to how I can change my business to apply the ideas.
The actual "how to do it" chapters were pretty old news to me. Get a blog, use this or that technology, what social media sites are best, etc. I'm looking for how to use those technologies better, with specific tips The one thing in the book that helped me and has stuck with me is the chapter on caring. Changed my perspective. I don't think I would have bought this book if I could go back in time, but that's just my personal preference.
I'm sure there are many thousands who find this book to be useful. In my opinion, the best small business book ever written is "The E-Myth Revisited. There is some useful information in this book - but it is so entangled with the self-promotional material by the author that it actually loses all credibility in my view.
I know the author has been successful and I have no doubt that he is very talented but this book becomes very irritating very quickly. Has Crush It! Be VERY selective with self help books.
