Book Review: A Walk With Purpose

FTC Required Disclosure: We received a review copy of A Walk With Purpose: Memoir of a Bioentrepreneur by Michael D. Becker free of cost or obligation for the purpose of writing this review.

Grab yourself a box of tissues and sit back for the best read you have had all year. We are talking about the great book A Walk With Purpose by Michael D. Becker

In this book, Becker takes us through his life, starting out as a child with his one and only experiment with drugs, through his life as a young computer geek who dropped out of high school, all the way through his life as a stockbroker, Biotech stock analyst, CEO, CFO, entrepreneur, and more.

Throughout his career, Michael Becker was in contact with numerous doctors, scientists, researchers, and more who were on the cutting edge of cancer research.  

Little did he know at the time that he would soon draw on the self-education he was getting to fight the disease himself.

A Walk With Purpose is an excellent read that you can’t put down.  From a business perspective, it is a great read giving the history behind some companies that we had never heard of that evidently are very big players in the biotech industry.

From a Life Recipe perspective, this book is a great read because it has such a positive message.  A message of hope.  

From an entertainment perspective, A Walk With Purpose is a wonderful read.  Bittersweet would be a good way to describe the book.

This book is happy, sad, funny, serious, informative, pretty much anything you want to find in a book is in this book.

The actual book is over 400 pages long.  That sounds like a lot, especially to anyone who normally only reads the 99¢ ebooks.  But, it is a very fast read. Primarily because it is impossible to put down.  We read it in less than a day.  Of course, part of that day was spent eating, blogging, etc., too.

We give A Walk With Purpose all five stars on our scale of zero to five stars.  It fits into just about every category of book we can think of, except maybe poetry.

We think you will enjoy your copy of A Walk With Purpose. Maybe you will be giving copies of it as gifts.  


Our video review is in production now and will be available soon as it is on an express schedule.

Friendly Fill Ins 9 June 2017

This is a fun meme co-hosted by McGuffy's Reader and 15 and Meowing. Be sure to visit and join in the fun!
Friday_Fill-In_Badge


Here are the fill-ins:

1. A recurring dream I have is it is rare that I dream.


When I do dream, it is usually about having to find a potty.  When I finally find one, I realize that it isn’t really a potty or isn’t working, etc.





2. Turn haters into taters .



I really don’t have anything for this one.  I just put that in there.



3. I can’t think of anything that is driving me crazy!

Well, probably our neighbors’ dogs.  They bark all the time without stopping.  When the dogs aren’t barking, the parents are yelling or talking very loud.  These people really would be happier on a farm.  They keep rabbits from time to time, but do so illegally.  They do the same with chickens.  They have more dogs and cats than are allowed in the city.  Nothing will be done by the city because they are friends with the only animal control officer.




4. Lately, I have been same-o same-o.

We work on the blogs and YouTube channel.  We make videos and posts.  We sit out and watch the birds and we read.  We get one book read and three come in the mail.  I average about one book per day.  I only make videos for the ones I really, really like.  If I made videos for all of them, I would always be in the studio and Hammie never would get a nap.

Today, 23 June 2017, in honor of my parents’ anniversary, all of our books are free on Amazon.  They will be free again on 26 June 2017, in honor of our baby girl’s birthday. Grab your free copy today.

Book Review: The Pen and the Brush

The Pen and the Brush
By Anka Muhlstein
Translated by Adriana Hunter

We were provided a copy of The Pen and the Brush in order to review it.

Wow! This book is a wonderful blend of art and literary appreciation. Often, I felt like I was in way over my head, but it was exciting and invigorating.

I have always enjoyed history, literature, and art, and this book is a perfect blend of all three. The focus of the book is how art inspired literature, but we also learn how literature also inspire art.

There are some very funny moments in this educational book, as well as information that I never knew about a well-known American inventor. Maybe I’m the only person on the planet that didn’t know this about him, but just in case I’m not, I won’t spoil the surprise for you.

This book is inspiring and has made me want to explore art even further. It has also been the cause of a big increase in my to-be-read stack.


The Pen and the Brush was better than any art or literature appreciation class that I have ever had. If you love art and history, you will not be disappointed or bored with this book. Quite the opposite; you will be enlivened!

Book Review: Eat Wheat

This post includes a shout out to Annie over at P.S. Annie! P.S. Annie! has many different subjects that are addressed on this blog.  It is sort of a catch-all blog for Suzanne.  Stop by and see what she has going on today.

We were sent a copy of Eat Wheat, written by Dr. John Douillard, for the purpose of writing this review.

Many people stop eating certain foods because they cannot tolerate them any longer.  They feel relief, but that does not last long.  Soon, the problems return.

Eat Wheat addresses why that happens.  Dr. Douillard gives us good, healthy choices that will help detox and reset the body so that we can again eat the foods we love.

This book is well-written and well-researched.  It is a very entertaining read as well.  Often times we find ourselves zoning out when reading books that are medical in nature.  Not so with Eat Wheat.

Why certain things have happened to us because of food is addressed in Eat Wheat.  Once David stopped drinking a name brand diet soda water for awhile.  His blood sugars improved. Then, he treated himself to one 20 oz. diet soda water.  His blood glucose went crazy.   Dr. Douillard explains why that happened.

If you are having health problems of any kind, we suggest you get a copy of Eat Wheat and see if it might be caused by diet.  Of course, ALWAYS consult your medical provider before you start any nutritional  program.

We give Eat Wheat all five stars and two snaps up in a circle.  We would give it a bag of chips, too, if they are baked, not fried, and do not contain preservatives or overly processed ingredients.

How to Manage Your Monkey Direct Sales


One way of earning a little side income, which could
actually replace your main income, is direct sales.


Direct sales is selling things like Avon, Mary Kay,
Tupperware, Home Interior, etc.



Often the cost to become a sales representative is minimal.  The rep buys the kit and they are ready.  Usually the kit contains a small collection
of brochures along with a few samples.

There are also numerous brochures to help you get started, in most cases.



The new representative then visits everyone they know to let
them know they are in this new business.

As soon as the person can, they will want to invest in more sales
brochures, business cards, and magnetic door signs for their car.


Suzanne and I were sales representatives for Avon for a while.  We did very well and then
the company changed the way they did business.
They got away from what had been a successful product mix to get into home items like table decorations and into clothing.



That would not have been so bad, but they had a terrible time with inventory.  They were often out of
basic merchandise for a long time. 


If they can get back to the old tried and true product mix and keep those items in stock, Avon is a very good business to be in.


Companies like Tupperware generally sell through a party
plan.  Representatives find hostesses who will host a party at their homes.  If the hostess sells enough products, she qualifies for free gifts.


The dealer tries to book more parties from the party
guests.  It really is a win-win situation.


There are other well-established direct sales companies.  Mary Kay is a very big name in the direct sales world.  We have no experience with Mary Kay, but many people do very well with it.


Perhaps you can think of others.
