Fired-Up Fundraising
by Gail A. Perry

Praise for Fired-Up Fundraising: Turn Board Passion into Action

Fired-Up Fundraising is honest, realistic, practical, and inspiring. It transforms the whole concept of fundraising from obligation and drudgery into passion and fun. Every CEO, development director, development consultant, and board chair needs to have and use this book.”
Charles F. (Chic) Dambach President and CEO, Alliance for Peacebuilding Former Senior Consultant, BoardSource

“A breakthrough! Fired-Up Fundraising takes the mystery out of engaging your board in the ongoing work of fundraising. In this well-organized little book, Gail Perry lays out a commonsense, four-step process that will fire up your board and help you meet your fundraising goals, year after year.”
Mal Warwick author of How to Write Successful Fundraising Letters

Fired-Up Fundraising: Turn Board Passion into Action is by far the best book I have ever read on how to involve board members in the entire process of fundraising, from identifying prospects, cultivating them, and finally making ‘the ask.’ Just as important, it is an invaluable guide on how to select, enlist, train and especially inspire board members so they take ownership of their institutions. Every nonprofit CEO and development officer should read this book.”
Robert L. Gale President Emeritus, Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges and founder of BoardSource (formerly known as the National Center for Nonprofit Boards)

“This is the book for which EVERY nonprofit chief executive has been yearning since time immemorial. Every nonprofit needs money to survive and thrive, and every nonprofit has a board of trustees to help raise it, but few nonprofits come anywhere near using their boards to maximum benefit. Fired-Up Fundraising, a reader-friendly, realistic, and practical playbook written by a richly experienced, highly literate fundraiser turned consultant, takes readers by the hand and leads them step-by-step through eminently doable ways of inspiring the greatest possible engagement of-and return from-their trustees. It will instantly become the gold-standard guide for building successful boards.”
Joel Fleishman Professor of Law and Public Policy and Director, The Foundation Research Program, Duke University


Fire Up Your Metabolism
by Lyssie Lakatos, Tammy Lakatos Shames

“I can’t loose weight because I have a terrible metabolism”
You may not realize it, but you can take control of your metabolism.
Identical twins and registered dietitians, Lyssie Lakatos and Tammy Lakatos Shames embarked on a twin study to determine precisely what does — and doesn’t — increase the rate at which our bodies burn calories and fat.
Their findings? Small changes have big results.
The nine weight-loss principles — and the 200 tips that help you incorporate them into your lifestyle — in Fire Up Your Metabolism are surprisingly simple: Eat breakfast before you get to work. Learn which sugary snacks trump others (peanut M&Ms boost metabolism, but Twizzlers don’t). Drink water, which is essential to burning calories. Always eat dinner, even if it’s late. Focus on muscle building, not cardiovascular workouts.
With Fire Up Your Metabolism, you won’t have to avoid restaurants or follow a diet (though one is included if you like regimentation). The fatigue and distracting hunger that derail most dieters won’t affect you because revving your metabolism is all about eating. You will enjoy breads and other carbohydrates. You will boost your metabolism with power proteins, including hamburgers, and avoid other proteins that bog you down. You will indulge in snacks you thought a dieter could never touch.
Lyssie and Tammy’s clients have experienced not only dramatic weight loss but also the thrill of having more energy than ever before. Now you, too, can rewire your metabolism to lose weight fast and forever.

Fired Up

ASHTONIf there’s one thing I know, it’s how to play the game…both on and off the field. If it hadn’t been for that one teenage slipup where I kissed Beau Campbell, I’d be able to keep fooling myself. Football is the one thing I use to distract myself from the truth, and when I screw-up and lose the game I love, I find myself right back in Fever Falls. And right back face-to-face with Cranky Campbell, who hates me even more than he did when we were kids. Whatever magic he held over me then is still there. As much as I fight it, I still want him. And I always get what I want…well, except with Beau, who constantly calls me on my crap. Why do I like that so much?BEAUI might’ve spent years watching Ash live out my dream-without the off-field antics and orgies with women, at least-but I’ve made a good life for myself. I’m a firefighter, and I coach my brother’s football team for those with developmental disabilities. But when Ash swings back into town armed with his monster ego and an arsenal of stupid nicknames, everyone is in awe of him. Nope, not me. I don’t care if our kiss years ago was responsible for my sexual awakening. I won’t fall for Ashton Carmichael. Though that resolution would be a whole lot easier if he wasn’t so tempting. Once he finds his way into my bed, I’m screwed-in more ways than one. But there’s more to Ash than meets the eye, buried beneath his ego, sarcasm and how we burn up the sheets together. Soon, it’s more than a game. We don’t just get each other fired up, we just might win each other’s hearts.Too bad things are never that simple…

Fire Up the Grill!
by Anthony Boundy

Why buy gourmet BBQ sauce in a jar for extravagant prices when you can make your own with delicious results? I used to think that I didn’t have the know-how to make different types of tasty sauces for my beef and chicken. I couldn’t have been more wrong, and if you are thinking the same thing, then you will change your mind after you try a few of these saucy recipes. The key to some of these sauces is how long you let the flavors blend together so some methods need a chill period of 2-3 days. After the sauce has had time to marinate the flavor of the ingredients will make your meat taste out of this world. All you need are a few simple ingredients and some time to create delicious BBQ that will have your lips smacking and everyone reaching for more.
