When the economy collapses into recession (or worse), men who have learned a variety
of construction and household repair skills for everything from roofing to plumbing
to glazing will find themselves laid off from their regular jobs with bleak prospects
of re-hiring elsewhere. But there is one tremendous possibility that is open to all,
that of self-employment as a handyman. In “The Handyman’s Guide To Profit: Using
Your Skills To Make Money In Any Economy”, A William ‘Bill’ Benitez draws upon his
personal and professional experience of 30 years in owning and operating a one-man
business as a carpenter and handyman, and 20 years as a cabinet/furniture maker,
to take readers through s superbly organized approach to starting up their own handyman
operation. Every aspect is covered from recruiting customers, to pricing jobs, to
getting paid, to expanding skill sets, to using the Internet, to accounting and taxes,
and a great deal more. Practical and ‘user friendly’, “The Handyman’s Guide To Profit:
Using Your Skills To Make Money In Any Economy” truly lives up to the promise of
its title and should be considered essential reading for anyone seeking to setting
themselves up to do a profitable business in these unprofitable times.

Review by The Midwest Book Review – 6/6/10
In just 192 pages, A. William Benitez takes the reader through a comprehensive do-it-yourself
course on transforming woodworking from a creative and practical hobby to a flourishing
and successful business enterprise. Thoroughly ‘user friendly’, “Woodworking Business:
Start Quickly and Operate Successfully; An Expert Woodworker Reveals The Keys To
Succeeding In The Woodworking Business” covers every aspect of becoming a woodworking
entrepreneur beginning with meeting local business regulations; calculating project
costs; contracts and forms; recruiting customers (especially with a shoe-string marketing
budget); utilizing a web site as a 24-hour showroom; dealing with the IRS; accounting
and taxes; and building up a ‘brand name’ recognition for your work and your company.
Practical, superbly organized and presented, “Woodworking Business” should be considered
mandatory reading for anyone seeking to establish their woodworking pastime into
a full-fledge and profitable business.

A New Hero Is Born
Lottie is my kind of people. A real person. Caring, smart, savvy.
She may be only a kid, but she's a great role model for anybody. And she has the
most interesting, sometimes kind of scary, adventures. And she meets weird people,
funny people, wacky people, serious people. Sometimes she gets herself in a pickle,
but she always rises to the occasion and figures out how to get out of it. She doesn't
reject the kindness of strangers either.
More than anything, Lottie is saturated with decency. She's doesn't have to be in
control all the time. She can be vulnerable. She can be hurt. But she likes herself
no matter what. And she likes people. All people. If you liked A Wrinkle in Time,
you'll like Lottie's Adventures as well.
DAW, Austin, Texas
It's an exciting thriller that makes you want to keep on reading.
Adam Lubbers, age
What a refreshing plot. All of the characters are so believable. Lottie seems like
someone that you have known who lives across town, down the street, or maybe even
your next door neighbor. We need more stories like this one that show just how important
family connections are. The older and younger generations connect in such a loving
way as Lottie showed so much compassion for someone not of her race or gender. How
awesome! There are lots of readers, young and old, who will find this an intriguing

Peace and Healing For The World Using Altars was an adventure of gratitude. As I
journeyed through the author’s experiences, I saw how she processed her life experiences
through the creation of each altar. The symbols in each altar reflected the pathway
that the author used to change the mundane into sacred as she experienced each relationship
in her life. She also demonstrates how each person in her sacred space is honored
as reflections of Goddess energy. Most importantly, she uses a variety of symbols
and materials to express Goddess energy in the earth.

Lucretia’s insightful book has inspired me to create a shrine to family and friends,
one that reminds me of the joy of life and the positive vibes I can send out to everyone.
Thank you and many blessings on your endeavors.
John Fry, Engineer Driftwood, Texas
Upon beginning Peace and Healing for the World Using Altars, I began to respond deeply
to Lucretia's words. In the nurturing environment of Thyme and Dough in Dripping
Springs, TX, (which she mentions in her credits), I spoke into the air around me,
affirming YES. Having worked with her in years previous, I already appreciate her
clear and compassionate communication as well as her healing guidance. Through entering
her home environments I know her visual acuity and remember beautiful jewelry (personal
power necklaces) created for me and others, and the ceremony she skillfully creates,
the energy she brings to each endeavor. She is passionate about her life's work.
This book will be a balm and an entrance for some, a welcoming back home for others.
To each of us who pick up and open these pages, the mystery of life–it's very heart–unfolds
as palms opening toward us.

“This important book is concerned with the direction that moderm societies have taken
with the alienation of citizens of the world; the division between and within all
cultures that the inhabitants of the planet are experiencing. War, violence, and
agression are a result. Irie Glajar, a teacher, explains that we are all one, and
that until we perceive the unity and connectedness of our Universe, we will not succeed
as a species. He ends with a letter to Presidents and terrorists proposing a “World
Unity Conference for Heads of States,” with the sole purpose of discussing the unity
of all things. Irie had captured the essence of the causes, and a solution to the
problems that the world currently faces.”

This is one of the most thought provoking books that I have ever had the pleasure
of reading. It weaves historical facts into a world fabric that backs up the beautiful
theory of “WE ARE ALL ONE.” We need a million of these books delivered to our world
leaders so that we can all get on the same page. It truly is an intelligent and enjoyable
David R. H. Walker, Creative Director and Author
TEACH FOR LIFE, the new book by Irie Glajar, a math professor, provides many easy,
fun, effective, and practical ways for each of us as human beings and citizens of
the world, to fulfill our dual duties as teachers and students. We all have the responsibility
to learn and teach forever. Irie’s book can help us enjoy and effectively handle
our double duties and opportunities in those two most important capacities. His daring
escape in 1981 at age 26 from, then, hard-core Communist Romania, and his life thereafter
in the U.S.A show that a motivated person can accomplish virtually anything.
At a convention in 2009, I happened to meet one of Irie’s former students. She recalled
that back in the 1980’s, “Irie made math fun.” In TEACH FOR LIFE, Irie shares with
us effective and fun means of enjoying and fulfilling our endless opportunities to
teach and learn.
Having been a part-time woodworker for almost 30 yrs, I had always wanted to start
my own business but was never really quite sure about how to go about it. Your book
describes the process in a clear, concise manner while at the same time advising
of the potential pitfalls. This has helped me to go into my business with my eyes
wide open. I especially like the simplified woodworking concept and will adapt some
of my methods to this style in an effort to be more productive.
I also like the fact that you personally respond to emails. There are other products
on the net that seem to be run by autoresponders, not humans!
I will be pleased to offer a personal testimonial should the need ever arise.
Chris Looney, Hardwood Technology Custom Cabinets & Woodworking
