Tom Freiling and Xulon Press – Bad Reports to Better Business Bureau

I received an email this week with another complaint against Xulon Press – who published 4 of my books and proved to be a bit sneaky and phony as to publicity they advertised, promised, and sold me that they later provided far less than that which they pitched and profited from.

Here’s the latest scandal on Xulon Press below I just was emailed below:

 

“My husband and I saw your web log about Xulon press and I am so happy that you are speaking out against them. They did the same thing to us. In 2002 my husband’s uncle Billy ( Billy Barty) was being featured on an A/E biography.

Because my husband and I were both Christians we sought out a Christian publisher so that we could have our tribute book done in a reasonable time frame. Many well known celebrities had participated. Tom Freiling had no problem taking our money for the best sellers program along with all of the extra fee’s that came along with it. After reading all their hype we thought they were a company with integrity. We have had nothing but heartache from them from the get go.

I pray that others will see your weblog. Recently we filed a complaint with the FTC and the BBB. We have had very little money from them and the last time they said they owed us 39.00 which we never received. This company definitely does not promote Christian ethics nor does it answer phone calls or e-mails when there is a problem that arises. If you need our support, count us in.

I went on BBB of Central Florida. Xulon has evidently had 9 complaints and three this past year. I hope others will come forward.”

God Bless, Debra and Mike Copeland

High School Class Reunion – Thoughts and Reflections

I’ve been bad by not staying in touch with my high school classmates. Yet had I done so I may not have grown into the man I now am. Some 20 years later I can truly enjoy meeting up with my high school mates and not just reflect on the past but rejoice in our future developments.

My Dad always told me the reunions got better at 20 years and beyond as much of the pretense had died by then and people mellowed out.

As for me I graduated from Clermont High School, class of 1987.  I was voted the funniest in my class. I guess because I was a bit of a clown and somewhat clueless about life in general. I’m still growing up today! LOL

Reposition Yourself for Transformation and Excellence

Boldly and confidently reposition yourself

For glorious transformation and excellence

Transition through life without hesitance

Forget circumstances that come with defiance

Irritating and disgruntled coworkers in alliance

With those seeking to thwart your own success

Those who are merely grievous and jealous

Spread your wings and soar with the eagles

Leave the chickens and buzzards behind

Arise to your fullness, now is your time!

Coworkers Driving You Nuts – What Do Your Coworkers Do That Drive You Crazy?

My co-workers come into my office too often and break my focus, hindering my work productivity. Talking about non-work related matters, complaining about their latest irritation, and calling to ramble on about nothing of importance.

As a conflict resolution specialist and life coach, I suggest the following to deal with such annoyances.

1. Don’t answer the telephone when you are working.

2. Screen calls and attend to only those that are important.

3. Lock your office door.

4. Put in ear plugs while working at your cubicle to minimize distractions.

5. Politely ask your co-workers not to disturb you.

6. Ask your boss to relocate you to a more quiet place in the office so you can minimize distractions and be more productive.

7. Tell your colleagues at work your ears aren’t garbage cans, neither are you a dumping ground for all their complaints. Tell them to be proactive and solve their own problems.
