He provides an excellent workbook outline for a Kaizen event along with a strong glossary of Kaizen terms.

“Kaizen Kreativity (Oops) or Don't Be Afraid of Looking Stupid. I'm an Expert at It!” provides solid elements of a desktop guide for conducting a Kaizen along with suggestions on how to make the Kaizen tools exciting.

You2Preneur: Twelve Nuts Torqued for Maximum Life Momentum
By dee VANAD
Publisher: AuthorHouse
ISBN: 978-1477203385
Pages: 244
Genre:Body Mind Spirit; Personal Growth
Formats Available For Review: ebook, print

You2Preneur presents VANAD’s holistic yet practical approach to the way a person works, lives and makes a living … and survives, in harmony with the singular creative spirit that is born inside all. Written by noted Columbus Ohio trial attorney turned performing rock musician and personal growth speaker dee VANAD, the book is an adaptable plan that recognizes that every solo soul searcher needs to keep the utilities on and pay the bills. That burning part of a person that craves us doing our own thing must coalesce with those things society demands. But, far from being a traditional ‘how-to’, and never a business manual or superfluous preach – the author reveals those twelve life lug nuts that torqued just right for him, keep the electric running uninterrupted while allowing his own soul lava to boil forth without much of a care for concrete formulas.

Storyteller VANAD begins the novel and armament by recounting a long ago maniacal toboggan ride on an ice rocket borrowed from six midgets who witnessed his impromptu snow squall death taunt. He did survive – and as much as he learned early that risk taking is an art that pervades some lives – he came to know that his journey definitely is one of those. Lessons learned whittle a winning philosophy that herein becomes valuable knowledge shared. Some of the vignettes are plain and simple. Quite a few belie a writing style that is forged of pure comedy. But all of You2Preneur is practical advice mixed with a heavy measure of stories one simply falls down deep into.

We meet a nationally recognized insurance company president who won’t cast his own written communique’ for lack of confident form that VANAD is called upon to provide him. Benefit now from VANAD’s recipe. There’s a law professor along the way who weighs in from the classroom lectern whilst drawing heavily from the theater, never knowing that VANAD has usurped his word-for-word script and is making his own underground deals with a tome he did not author. Angels decide to descend from the heavens to save a 60′s collector-guitar from sidekick-VANAD decapitation. A circus mid-way barker collars the boy VANAD in the midst of his black ops behind-the-scenes carney peep … and to the youngster’s amazement, the stinky curmudgeon delivers a life-carving master’s revelation the lad will never forget. Even Earth’s worst addiction becomes a vanquished conquest as the now middle-aged author hunts down and harpoons his own lifelong claw clutching back monkey through the invention and use of a device he unfurls from seeds planted by an LSD researcher and a movie appearance by William Hurt.

Share now VANAD’s entertaining presentation of TNT for MLM. These then are the twelve reasons this son of an immigrant family steel worker and carpenter beat all odds and they are why he learned that every entrepreneur needs: You2.

Which dozen lug nuts in your life will you be inspired to truth-tell …
