Life Lease, 2021

 

Life lease is a relatively new concept in some jurisdictions. Most people, including real estate brokers and lawyers, may not be familiar with the operations of a life lease, and some people even have never heard about it. Since it is not common in many areas, there is a lack of legislation to protect consumers. However, the need for life lease communities has significantly increased due to the baby boomers. It is because most of the baby boomers can afford life lease style living and would buy them for their retirement life.


There are different life lease sponsors in the market. Although most of them are non-profit organizations, the prices, quality and services vary among them. I hope this book can help consumers select the right life lease community and provide the sponsors with some ideas to improve their business models.

Differential Cogitation, 2020

 

People always say “Think outside of the box!” and show you success stories of such a creative thinking method, but no one can show you exactly How to think outside of the box?


Learning how to think creatively is like learning how to drive a car. The engineers may tell you how a car works, the mechanism of an engine, the transmission, steering and braking systems. They may also tell you all the terminologies of a car, brake bias, fuel injection, PSI, etc. However, knowing all those things will not make you a good driver. People who say “Think outside of the box!” is like shouting “Drive Safe!” to a teenager without a driver’s license but tries to drive a car. They cannot help or teach the teenager how to drive just by telling them to do so.

A book that tells you how your brain works or how to define problem-solving techniques cannot help or teach you how to think creatively. In other words, you cannot think outside of the box just by knowing the terminologies and how our brain works. Differential Cogitation will tell you how to make your brain work and how to solve problems so that you can think like a CEO! Become a Professional Problem Solver!

Why Do Some Franchises Fail, 2019

 

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary and Oxford dictionary, an entrepreneur is basically the one “who organizes, manages, and assumes the risks of a business.” Simply speaking, an entrepreneur is a business owner who also manages the business personally. Therefore, owning a franchise business also fits into the idea of entrepreneurship. However, not all franchisors are good, and not all franchisors will succeed for long. This book tells you why.


Most mistakes made by the franchisors are related to the operations of their franchise business (the franchisors’ operations) and not to those of their own business (the franchisees’ operations). The purpose of this book is to reveal the common mistakes that franchisors make so that these unfortunate failures will not happen again.

If you are a prospective franchisee, you will benefit from understanding the logic behind franchise businesses to aid you in making wise decisions.

Feng Shui 123 (Second Edition), 2012

 

All books containing information about traditional Feng Shui are ancient books written in Literary Chinese (an ancient written Chinese in a very short form, even many Chinese people would have difficulties in understanding them). Many of these books have been explained in modern Chinese and translated into English (such as Yi Jing), but still, they are too difficult and abstract for beginners.


Most of the modern Feng Shui books are written in Chinese only. The majority of them were written by the masters from different streams, the authors used only the theories that they believed. Other books were published by editors, most of them consolidated different theories into the books with contradictions - a result of poor editing. All the above makes self-studying Feng Shui very difficult.
 
Following a Feng Shui master may be a good way to learn Feng Shui.  Unfortunately, the master-apprentice system has been destroyed by our fast moving industrial society. People do not have the patience to learn full-time for more than a decade before practicing. Moreover, many masters do not teach their students all they know, they teach only their children their secret theories.  That is, they will keep some theories as their secrets and will only tell their own children. This further damaged the master-apprentice system.
 
Moreover, learning from a master limits knowledge to that particular stream.  Unlike other academic subjects, Feng Shui masters do not teach or advocate theories that do not belong to their school. This further limits the flow of Feng Shui knowledge. Buy it from
