Amazon Hammers Book Publishers

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

As a writer of a number of published books I try to stay current with the publishing industry. While Amazon is a great outlet for many, book publishers face increased financial pressure because of them.

First, Amazon makes used books available at low prices. Many people don’t want to keep a book after they’ve read it.  One time through is enough. Readers may get some of the book’s price back by making their book available for sale on Amazon.com.  Amazon matches buyers and sellers of these books.  A few years ago these books would have ended up in a used book store, donated to local library or tossed in the trash. If a customer is willing to wait six months or more, a bestseller that might have cost $29.99 in hardcover may be available for $4 to $10, sometimes even less. However, publishers and authors make nothing on these resales.

Small Changes Matter

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

Small adjustments may have major impact on businesses or life. I attended a presentation where I heard a speaker whose name I cannot remember. He shared the suggestion that if we made a habit of parking at the far side of a parking lot when we go to work or shop, the extra walking would reduce our weight one pound a year for the average American. That’s ten pounds in ten years. Most of us struggle with weight reduction and would love to lose ten pounds or more. Embracing this small change over a long period of time makes a significant difference.

When the Lord Says No

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

Several times I have looked at starting a venture or taking steps in a certain direction and felt checked by the Lord. At times I failed to understand why the Lord said “no” to something that seemed good to me. We see an example in scripture when David wanted to build a Temple to the Lord, but God assigned the task to another. In this instance, Solomon.

Different Standards

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

I was cleaning my garage the other day, not one of my favorite tasks. I was reflecting on what represented a reasonable standard for cleaning the garage. I attacked the floor with my shop vacuum and cleaned up the dead bugs by the window as well as reorganized a number of things.  The result was more order and a cleaner space. From time to time I must undertake this effort.

The Cost of Hesitation

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

In business we need to balance a lean toward action against being reckless. At times I’ve seen business leaders dither indefinitely when action is required.  We read an example from scripture. “They answered, ‘Come on, let's attack them! We have seen the land, and it is very good. Aren't you going to do something? Don't hesitate to go there and take it over.’” (Judges 18:8, NIV) In this instance the Lord prompted quick action.
