Business Etiquette in the Philippines

"Business Etiquette in the Philippines: The Essential Guide for Westerners" by Russell J. Walker PhD

The Key to Your Business Success in the Philippines! There are two words which are typically used by Westerners when describing their business and social interactions with Filipinos – “friendly” and “easy-going”. Delve a bit deeper, however, and you often find a third word making an appearance – “frustrating”. For a newly arrived Westerner coming to their first business meeting in Manila, it can be quite easy to fall into the trap of assuming that you are simply in a slightly more exotic version of London, LA or Melbourne. It is, unfortunately, an easy trap to fall into – to forget that, first and foremost, the Philippines is an Asian country and, like most Asian cultures, there’s a lot more going on beneath the surface than meets the eye! Including personal anecdotes and experience from an insider's perspective, Business Etiquette in the Philippines is your essential resource for business success.

Thailand Calling

"Thailand Calling" by Dana Aaron Mather

| Facebook | Disenchanted with his life in America, Joe Jeffries flies to Bangkok to pursue what his friend describes as "The rockstar dream on the backpacker budget." On his first night in Bangkok, however, terrorist bombs explode and his plans begin to go awry. As he soon discovers, the grass isn't always greener on the other side of the world. This book is very raw and contains a lot of truth about both Thailand and life in general. It's the kind of book that might have happened if Charles Bukowski had taken a trip to Thailand. It's intended for adults and not for the faint of heart.

Buying Time (Legacy Series, Book 1)


Read More...
Arianna Sinclair had led a privileged life, growing up in an elite neighborhood in Marin County, California. Having only known private schools, fancy country clubs and all things luxurious, Arianna had been prepared for everything in life—except hardship.

At twenty-two, Arianna’s world is rocked by tragedy, and all she wants to do is escape it by taking the trip of a lifetime. All she wants to do is pretend that everything is “normal”, even though her whole world has crashed in around her.

She’s made the decisions about the direction she wants her life to go, until a surprise encounter with someone from her past challenges everything she believes—and everything that she thinks she needs in order to move on.

A meeting with a stranger, an unexpected journey and a shock that goes to the core of who she is—or who she thinks she is—will demand a reaction. A reaction that will have Arianna laying down the foundation for the rest of her life.
