Thirty-five of my BFF and I decided last year to write snippets of our lives, reflecting on how we used our mojo to survive and thrive. Many of us escaped adversity in our home countries, including the genocide of the Killing Fields in Cambodia, the Cuban Revolution, and the brutal life in the rural mountain villages of Per. Others in my list of BFF escaped the equally harsh demons of drug addiction, while others survived poverty, racism, war, and all forms of discrimination. However, nothing could stop any of us in our aim to lead a successful life with no sulking. None of us considered success the result of becoming rich and famous; instead, to us, success meant bettering ourselves, bettering the world, innovating where we could, and creating businesses, such as Charles Schwab, EnergySolutions, Yahoo, HBO, MTV, Nickelodeon, parts of the Virgin Group, and many others. We have accomplished our goals through passion, leadership, and perseverance without sacrificing our values, and we continue to do so today. The book contains our stories in our own words, and just like Napoleon Hill did in his famous book Think and Grow Rich in 1937, we have analyzed our life trips and derived the twenty rules that we have consciously or unconsciously followed to achieve our individual success. The stories represent three dozen lifetimes of successes and failures, or perhaps we should call them learning steps. Through it all, we have used our mojo to the max and still do so today. We truly got mojo, and these are our stories of inspiration and perspiration.

The follow-up to global bestseller What Got You Here Won't Get You There (the Amazon.com no.1 bestseller for 2007 on Leading People) addresses the vital phases of gaining mojo (tough), maintaining it (tougher) and recapturing it after you lose it (toughest of all, but not impossible) This is vital in any competitive arena, whether business, sport or politics. Goldsmith draws on new research, as well as his extensive experience with corporate teams and top executives, to provide compelling case studies throughout. Readers will learn the 26 powers that are within us all and will come away with a new, hyper-effective technique to define, track and ensure future success for themselves and their organisations. Goldsmith's one-on-one training usually comes with a six-figure price tag. Now his advice is available without the hefty fee.

All Dylan wants is mojo. What is mojo? It's power. The ability to command respect. It's everything Dylan doesn't have. He gets no respect at school, and when he finds the dead body of a classmate, even the police push him around. All the thanks he gets for trying to help the investigation with his crime drama skills is a new nickname at school: Body Bag. So when Dylan hears about a missing rich girl from the other side of town, he jumps at the chance to dive into this mystery. Surely if he cracks a case involving a girl this beautiful and this rich, he'll get not only a hefty cash reward, but the mojo he's looking for. His investigation takes him into the world of an elite private high school and an underground club called Gangland. As Dylan—along with his loyal friends Audrey and Randy—falls down the rabbit hole, lured by the power of privilege, he begins to lose himself. And the stakes of the game keep getting higher.

After fifteen years of rising to the pinnacle of the hospitality industry, Chip Conley's company was suddenly undercapitalized and overexposed in the post-dot.com, post-9/11 economy. For relief and inspiration, Conley, the CEO and founder of Joie de Vivre Hospitality, turned to psychologist Abraham Maslow's iconic Hierarchy of Needs. This book explores how Conley's company "the second largest boutique hotelier in the world" overcame the storm that hit the travel industry by applying Maslow's theory to what Conley identifies as the key Relationship Truths in business with Employees, Customers and Investors. Part memoir, part theory, and part application, the book tells of Joie de Vivre's remarkable transformation while providing real world examples from other companies and showing how readers can bring about similar changes in their work and personal lives. Conley explains how to understand the motivations of employees, customers, bosses, and investors, and use that understanding to foster better relationships and build an enduring and profitable corporate culture.

Everything was going along as planned for Lou Malloy. He had figured out a way to get the money he had hidden in a casino that he and Hilary had robbed, a year ago with Crushers help. However, like a house of cards, one thing and then another started to happen along the way. First there was the attempt on his life by a sergeant in the Timucua Tribal Police Department and then Malloy’s old nemesis, Detective Sal Ramiro, trying to arrest him for crimes that there was no evidence that Malloy did them in the first place. In the meantime, Hilary has decided she wants a pet she could call her own and told Malloy that she wanted a cat. Malloy hated cats, but agrees to her request because he thinks the cat would not last a week living on Turtle Point property. But Hilary’s cat is no ordinary house cat. When Malloy learns that it is a black three hundred pound wild Panther from a neighboring wildlife sanctuary, he tells Hilary that she had better learn to take care of it. Naming the big cat, MOJO, Hilary is thrilled, but there is a problem. MOJO has a female friend show up, a snow leopard that she names, Pumpkin. Now Malloy has two cats. But nothing is as easy as it seems. Having gotten the money out of its hiding place and in his gator hole, Malloy now had to gamble on how he could keep what he had regardless of the cats. As if dealing with the extra money he had to hide was not enough, his significant other, Hilary Kelly has been kidnapped by a vicious killer from Cuba and now Malloy has to gamble with not only Hilary’s life, but Bunny’s as well since she was taken at the same time as Hilary. Lou Malloy did not like to gamble at anything and yet, here he was putting everything on the line to ransom Hilary Kelly from the grasp of this vicious killer who has threatened to kill both Hilary and Bunny unless Malloy delivers the computer disks and hard drives used in the manufacturing of counterfeit futures contracts for counterfeit currency of various countries in the world. To make matters dicey, a secret black opts group within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has made it clear that they want the disks to prevent financial terrorists from getting their hands on the technology. With all this happening, Malloy has to travel to Cuba, with the help of a special team of operatives, including Crusher and the mysterious Blue, to rescue Hilary and Crusher’s wife, Bunny. In the process, Malloy has to outwit a Greek criminal and two dishonest multi-millionaires who are after to technology as well and will do anything necessary to get what they want. The problem for Malloy is that he never knew he had possession of the technology until after the second robbery of the same casino that he had robbed fifteen years ago. Now, even if he wanted to give the Cubans the technology, he couldn’t until Hilary and Bunny were returned to safety. Up until that point, he didn’t know what he had until he had a computer expert by the name of John Goodman, access the technology from the disks to learn just what was there. Having learned that he had something that could cost him his life, as well as the lives of Hilary, Crusher and Bunny, Malloy knew he had to take the necessary precautions to safe guard the information. Things start to pick up at Turtle Point when a team of Miami Gangbangers try to raid Malloy’s property and find the computer technology. Malloy and his friend, Crusher, fight them off, but that just starts the ball rolling. Before long, Hilary and Bunny are kidnapped and the kidnappers are heading to Cuba with Malloy, Crusher and the mysterious Blue in hot pursuit. Along the way, Malloy and his team, traveling in a special configured yacht, fight off a hurricane and battle the kidnappers off the coast of Key West only to watch the kidnappers escape resulting in Malloy fighting for Hilary’s life and the security of the technology he is sworn to protect. Traveling to Cuba, Malloy must get Hilary back at all costs. All in ONLY TWO CATS.
