"Indispensable reading for anyone seeking to improve their professional selves." —Daniel H. Pink, #1 New York Times bestselling author of When An essential guide for how to snap out of autopilot and become your own best advocate, with candid anecdotes and easy-to-adopt steps, from veteran HR specialist and popular podcast host Laurie Ruettimann Chances are you've spent the past few months cooped up inside, buried under a relentless news cycle and work that never seems to switch off. Millions of us worldwide are overworked, exhausted, and trying our hardest—yet not getting the recognition we deserve. It’s time for a fix. Top career coach and HR consultant Laurie Ruettimann knows firsthand that work can get a hell of a lot better. A decade ago, Ruettimann was uninspired, blaming others and herself for the unhappiness she felt. Until she had an epiphany: if she wanted a fulfilling existence, she couldn’t sit around and wait for change. She had to be her own leader. She had to truly take ahold of life—the good, the bad, and the downright ugly—in order to transform her future. Today, as businesses prioritize their bottom line over employee satisfaction and workers become increasingly isolated, the need to safeguard your well-being is crucial. And though this sounds intimidating, it’s easier to do than you think. Through tactical advice on how to approach work in a smart and healthy manner, which includes knowing when to sign off for the day, doubling down on our capacity to learn, fixing those finances, and beating impostor syndrome once and for all, Ruettimann lays out the framework necessary to champion your interests and create a life you actually enjoy. Packed with advice and stories of others who regained control of their lives, Betting on You is a game-changing must-read for how to radically improve your day-to-day, working more effectively and enthusiastically starting now.

Hooked on You is the emotionally charged prequel to the Annapolis Harbor Series. Gabe The new Assistant U.S. Attorney was the last person I needed in my business... or my bar. The way she walked in wearing a tight suit and red power heels, flashing that badge should be illegal. Asking her for help was a mistake. Wanting her was a complication, one that I couldn't afford. We were from two different worlds. Taylor was spoiled, privileged and in way over her head. I was just the bad boy that girls like her were attracted to, a passing phase. An itch to scratch. I was no good for her and never would be. Taylor New Orleans was a fresh start, a chance to reinvent myself and do some good. Too bad the first person I met was a grumpy bartender with a chip on his shoulder. He said I knew nothing about his city, the people or what they needed. But one look at the bad boy bartender and I knew exactly what I needed. Even if I refused to admit it. Gabe was a connection to the community. Offering to waitress at his bar in exchange for his help had nothing to do with his flexing biceps or tattoos. He thought he knew me, that I couldn't handle him or the city... but he was wrong. Hooked on You was previously titled Easy Moves, and includes a brand new bonus epilogue. Praise for Hooked on You What a beautifully developed story of growth and demon slaying and trust and hope and friendship and love!! The story was both poignant and hopeful all in one giant swoop! I could not get enough of this romance journey because it was more than a romance journey. SO MUCH MORE. Absolute amazeballs!" -OMG Reads "Gabe and Taylor are COMPLETE opposites and this book is an emotional journey that you do not want to miss." -GA Book LoverX "An amazing read about love and family!" - The Book Fairy Reviews "I was totally hooked and intrigued throughout this addictive page turner, and this gifted author has done an amazing job in penning this tale which I highly recommend for all." - Goodreads reviewer "This book is amazing and has wonderful characters. If you love a story about bad boys loving good girls then this book is for you." - Moonshine Book Blog

But all around us are flashes of grace, shining examples of God’s love. Amy Seiffert says it’s the everyday moments that Jesus shines through: making time for a friend even when your to-do list is pages long; apologizing to your neighbor when you don’t want to admit you are wrong; opening the Bible when your soul feels hollow and empty.
