One million frogs...





One million frogs...
In 2007, Rhett Power and Peter Gasca resigned from lucrative consulting jobs with tremendous professional freedom to start their first company together, Wild Creations. Just a year later, the worst economic recession in a generation paralyzed the global economy. In the face of overwhelming odds, and in true entrepreneurial form, Power and Gasca were able to persevere with a great deal of creativity, common sense, and, ultimately, sheer determination

Within two years, Wild Creations grew to be recognized by the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce as the fastest-growing company in the state and by Inc. Magazine as one of the 500 fastest-growing companies in the U.S. 

Through One Million Frogs, Gasca and Power hope to provide other aspiring entrepreneurs with validation and inspiration, using the knowledge they gained in growing a highly successful business of their own in one of the most tumultuous times in a generation.

Remember that famous hot cup of coffee?





Remember that famous hot cup of coffee?
In Search of Quality addresses key questions about quality — everywhere. Quality affects everything in our lives: accounting, standardization, production, product development, internet, media, government, non-governmental organizations and trade — the list goes on and on. Quality is everywhere and affects everyone on this planet.

Quality was a concern even in the days of Aristotle and John Locke, but especially in today's competitive world, nobody can afford to ignore this important area. You'll learn things like:

  • Why airplane windows are round
  • Which was the most expensive cup of coffee in history?
  • How regulations affect small businesses
  • How quality control has changed everything

Many people fear the consequences of quality measures and have difficulties understanding this truly unique business — a business that is not appreciated by everyone.

In exploring the history of quality, this book provides fascinating knowledge about the major developments of quality and its business. And . . . it shows that quality is anything but boring, by highlighting some of the quality challenges people and organizations faced over the years. Those challenges were often reported in the media as quality scandals, but after the media lost interest, were often quickly forgotten. However, they do have a common core that connects technologies, people, organization and scandals.

This book explores that connection in fascinating detail.

A wild ride through an existential conflict to save mankind.




A wild ride through an existential conflict to save mankind.
 
The Secrets of Time Travel is the first book of a trilogy. Two scientists, once friends but now bitter enemies, one helped by the forces of heaven and one by the forces of hell, frantically search for the same scientific secrets that in the wrong hands can be used to lead millions to eternal damnation. 

The need to find the secrets escalates as Sivvius, guided by his so-called friends from beyond, draws perilously close to finding the secrets first and using them for his evil cause. In the midst of the epic struggle, a supporting cast of highly eccentric scientists adds a delicious touch of zany humor, while one of them wants to use the secrets they unearth to help him find his long-lost love.

Looking for Inner Peace? Look no further...





Read more and when you order the book, you'll receive Michael's new book of poetry
Peace Within is an inner state that is not dependent upon external circumstances. Because life is always changing and moving like a river, peace within is actually a dynamic process that requires improvisation and skillful maneuvering through the rapids of life.
This comprehensive and integrative process addresses mind, body, heart and soul. And it is a practice, unlike many other approaches, that merges eastern and western practices.
​​​​​​​
Each module of the book deals with a different dimension of being human and finding Peace Within.

The Peace Within Process
Peace within your day
Peace within your body
Peace within your mind
Peace within your heart
Peace within your self
Peace within your soul
Peace within your relationship
Peace within life
Peace within death

As you read the text and practice the exercises, remember that Peace Within refers to a dynamic, living, integrative peace that grows from the inside out. In time, your inner peace will become less and less dependent upon external circumstances, but rather grow from the inside-out emerging from the great ocean of peace that is always available to all of us, if you know how to access it.
My journey from despair to awakening and living in deeper alignment with the ocean of peace that informs my life day in and day out has been nothing short of amazing!  In the following pages, I refined the essential elements of what I discovered on my journey into a format that I hope resonates with you and helps you find your Peace Within.


"Dr. Michael DeMaria has assembled a unique and powerful workbook to help us find peace and healing, plus freedom from excessive negative feelings. He skillfully integrates practices he has developed over decades as a superior therapist, meditation teacher, yoga instructor, wilderness guide, and musician. Michael provides useful models for thinking about the practices and discusses how he has used the practices in his personal life. With this wonderful manual one discovers ways to improve the health, effectiveness, and pleasure of body, mind, heart, self, soul, and relationships with others and the world."

Can you imagine a life where your relationships are easy and fill your bucket instead of drain it? Can you see yourself standing tall with unlimited confidence? Now imagine everyone with whom you come into contact seeing you as poised, wise, calm, centered and at peace even during the worst of circumstances. This brings you great respect. It's almost as if people think you mysteriously know something they do not. And perhaps you do. You can have all of that and so much more.

Having peace and fulfillment in your life is not just desirable, it is necessary to fulfill your purpose here. Without it, you may continue to struggle through life on the wrong path. Life wants more from you.You have a purpose here and life is not ready to give up on you. What if you let go of the control and allowed life to come to you instead?

By sharing my personal journey of challenges, weaknesses, fears, resentments, anger, and sadness, I hope that everyone who reads this can have the life they deserve. I was able to find the gold nuggets in my struggles and I want to share those gems with you. I want you to have peace in your life as well. Not just peace, but all the glory that comes with it - a truly gratifying life.

Acquiring peace and fulfillment doesn't require major life changes or risky moves. You can keep the same job, same spouse, same dog, same house and reap these benefits. But keep in mind, when you implement the simple techniques in this book, life is going to open up to you with tremendous opportunity. We were born with a purpose and when we are open and trusting, life shows us the way, our chosen way. It may have big plans for you. Do you want to find this path of inner nirvana? What are you waiting for? Open your mind and your heart to the idea of living this life. Come with me on this journey.
