Life lease is a
relatively new concept in some jurisdictions. Most people, including
real estate brokers and lawyers, may not be familiar with the operations
of a life lease, and some people even have never heard about it. Since
it is not common in many areas, there is a lack of legislation to
protect consumers. However, the need for life lease communities has
significantly increased due to the baby boomers. It is because most of
the baby boomers can afford life lease style living and would buy them
for their retirement life.
There are different life lease sponsors in the market. Although most of
them are non-profit organizations, the prices, quality and services vary
among them. I hope this book can help consumers select the right life
lease community and provide the sponsors with some ideas to improve
their business models.

People always say
“Think outside of the box!” and show you success stories of such a
creative thinking method, but no one can show you exactly How to think
outside of the box?
Learning how to think creatively is like learning how to drive a car.
The engineers may tell you how a car works, the mechanism of an engine,
the transmission, steering and braking systems. They may also tell you
all the terminologies of a car, brake bias, fuel injection, PSI, etc.
However, knowing all those things will not make you a good driver.
People who say “Think outside of the box!” is like shouting “Drive
Safe!” to a teenager without a driver’s license but tries to drive a
car. They cannot help or teach the teenager how to drive just by telling
them to do so.
A book that tells you how your brain works or how to define
problem-solving techniques cannot help or teach you how to think
creatively. In other words, you cannot think outside of the box just by
knowing the terminologies and how our brain works. Differential
Cogitation will tell you how to make your brain work and how to solve
problems so that you can think like a CEO! Become a Professional Problem

Do Some Franchises Fail,
According to the
Merriam-Webster dictionary and Oxford dictionary, an entrepreneur is
basically the one “who organizes, manages, and assumes the risks of a
business.” Simply speaking, an entrepreneur is a business owner who also
manages the business personally. Therefore, owning a franchise business
also fits into the idea of entrepreneurship. However, not all
franchisors are good, and not all franchisors will succeed for long.
This book tells you why.
Most mistakes made by the franchisors are related to the operations of
their franchise business (the franchisors’ operations) and not to those
of their own business (the franchisees’ operations). The purpose of this
book is to reveal the common mistakes that franchisors make so that
these unfortunate failures will not happen again.
If you are a prospective franchisee, you will benefit from understanding
the logic behind franchise businesses to aid you in making wise

Shui 123 (Second Edition), 2012
All books containing
information about traditional Feng Shui are ancient books written in
Literary Chinese (an ancient written Chinese in a very short form, even
many Chinese people would have difficulties in understanding them). Many
of these books have been explained in modern Chinese and translated into
English (such as Yi Jing), but still, they are too difficult and
abstract for beginners.
Most of the modern Feng Shui books are written in Chinese only. The
majority of them were written by the masters from different streams, the
authors used only the theories that they believed. Other books were
published by editors, most of them consolidated different theories into
the books with contradictions - a result of poor editing. All the above
makes self-studying Feng Shui very difficult.
Following a Feng Shui master may be a good way to learn Feng Shui.
Unfortunately, the master-apprentice system has been destroyed by our
fast moving industrial society. People do not have the patience to learn
full-time for more than a decade before practicing. Moreover, many
masters do not teach their students all they know, they teach only their
children their secret theories. That is, they will keep some theories
as their secrets and will only tell their own children. This further
damaged the master-apprentice system.
Moreover, learning from a master limits knowledge to that particular
stream. Unlike other academic subjects, Feng Shui masters do not teach
or advocate theories that do not belong to their school. This further
limits the flow of Feng Shui knowledge. Buy it from
