A Marine fighter pilot shares the story of his search for truth while serving his country.

Growing up in a secular family, Jason Ladd was apathetic when it came to the subject of God or religion.

How To Be a Real Estate Investor by Phil Pustejovsky


How to be a Real Estate Investor

ebq5st

Ever wonder what it takes to become a successful real estate investor?

To the inexperienced, it  can be a risky business fraught with dangers. But for those in the know, real estate can be a quick ticket to financial freedom and security, and it’s certainly no coincidence that many self-made millionaires acquire their wealth through real estate investment.

As a young man working at a Fortune 500 company, Pustejovsky quickly tired of the 9-5 grind and determined to make his money in real estate. But without the proper guidance, things quickly hit a wall and he soon found himself homeless. After giving his life to Christ, Pustejovsky met a seasoned real estate investor who became his mentor, showing him the ropes and giving him the tools and knowledge he needed to succeed and achieve his goal of financial freedom. With a new dream of expanding nation-wide, he created a successful mentoring program, after years of crafting a system for teaching others how to become successful real estate investors.

Fight!: A Practical Guide to the Treatment of Dog-Dog Aggression by Jean Donaldson

177249Fight! offers owners of dog-aggressive canines a wonderfully positive alternative to traditional punishment and intimidation -based training techniques for correcting their dog’s social woes. 

Written by the award-winning author of The Culture Clash, Jean Donaldson breaks down dog-dog aggression into it’s most simplest forms- 1) over-exuberant greeters, 2) proximity sensitivity to other dogs, 3) resource guarding, 4) bullying, 5) play skills deficit, and 6) genetic predisposition. She then takes the reader through each form, discussing the positive training methods that can be used to overcome each, as well as discussing proper training tools and a breakdown of common learning methods used in positive training.

As the owner of a fear-aggressive dog, I’ve read every book, article, pamphlet and beyond that I can get my hands on regarding training techniques that deal with behavior modification. It seems that everyone has their own magic mix of methods that they gather here and there from a common list of books- and near the top of almost every list is Fight!

I’ll add that almost every book on these lists are now out of print, so it’s taken me a while to find the funds to acquire each title, Fight! being my most recent purchase. With such high hopes and downright nerdy excitement, I couldn’t wait to dig in- but unfortunately, I was pretty disappointed with this book. Let me explain.

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Positive Dog Training by Pamela S. Dennison

10052297

ebq5stThis book completely changed the way I think about dogs.

Let me begin by saying that prior to this book, I was training (and I use that word very loosely) my dogs with the traditional punishment-based techniques. My dog at the time, a gentle Malamute/Siberian/Wolf mix was, as I was told, stubborn and disobedient (do you ever wish you could go back in time and kick yourself for being so stupid???). Also, because of his wolf breeding, I was told I needed to be the “alpha” or else he would become assertive over me and possibly aggressive.
