The Resilience Reflex Transform Barriers into Opportunities

By Yvonne Wu, published on Dec 6, 2015

Developing resilience started for me at a young age. I left a country full of turbulence called Africa without my parents. An incident at the age of 5 caused me so much anxiety that it left me with a speech impediment-stuttering. I have struggled with this impediment all my life. At one time I was 40 pounds over weight and I was able to lose the weight and keep it off. At times my speech was hard to understand so I became a good writer and I started to keep a motivation journal.

I wanted to be part of helping people in their journey toward a resilient life. I’ve wanted to share my message... (more)

E.Q. Librium Unleashing Your Emotional Intelligence

By Yvonne Wu, published on Sep 20, 2015

My journey into the domain of emotional intelligence started on what I thought was a simple path: a desire to learn how to manage my emotions. Emotional intelligence is a skill that can be used in any type of relationship. When writing my book I chose to focus on helping persons to develop their emotional intelligence while at work because on my consulting journey, I see so much need for it, but fortunately, emotional intelligence skills are applicable to all interpersonal relationships.

I started tracking the games people play at work, school, home, and church environments. In the work... (more)

The Kingdom on the Edge of Reality

By Yvonne Wu, published on Apr 24, 2015

People have asked me what is my greatest fear as a writer. My response has always been I avoid giving house room to any kind of fear any longer than it takes to analyze it, discredit it, and send it packing. Any wisdom circle will tell you that fear is a useless aberration that can actually serve to attract whatever a person is fearful of. They were shocked with my answer.

This is not your typical book. In my book "The Kingdom on the Edge of Reality” You will learn that the medieval world was entirely complete and contained everything essential for a healthy, happy life, and that we... (more)

Attract Your Ideal Weight

By Yvonne Wu, published on Dec 6, 2014

People who knew me as someone who was once 40 pounds overweight have asked how I have been successful in maintaining my weight and they ask me what my secret was. They were prepared to hear a name of diet or that I exercise every day. I never did any of those except for exercise 3 times a week on my elliptical. My answer to them was simple – I changed my habits and changed my relationship with food. They were shocked with my answer.

In my new book "Attract Your Ideal Weight” I find people that had lost weight and maintained it and I found 8 common themes or secrets that they share which... (more)

The Broken Gift

By Yvonne Wu, published on Aug 29, 2013

In my new book "The Broken Gift" I demonstrate alignment between key events and their dates relating to the appearance and early history of our species as described in Genesis chapters 1 through 11 (Adam, Adam’s descendants, the Flood, and the fall of Babel) with those derived from scientific observation.

I found that almost every person has at some point in their life pondered the question “where did I come from?” I found that the Bible and science are mostly in agreement as to what happened and how - although not completely on when it happened, and by studying both the Bible and science... (more)

The Genesis One Code

By Yvonne Wu, published on Oct 22, 2012

In my new book "The Genesis One Code" I share my formula for converting "Creation Days" to years as we know them in calculating the age of the universe, the sun, and life on Earth. Without any modifications, the formula consistently produces results that match scientific estimates. To become an engineer I studied engineering physics, which had a large physics and cosmology component. I realized then that some answers were missing in science, and continued to search for them both in science and in Kabbalah, which I began studying 13 years ago. This led me to writing my first book The Genesis... (more)

Your Startup Company as a Business Experiment

By Yvonne Wu, published on Sep 18, 2012

Entrepreneurs continue to follow traditional thinking of starting with a business plan and then executing it. Most entrepreneurs treat the information in the business plan as the proven recipe for reaching their goals. The problem is most of the information is estimates, guesses, and just plain wishful thinking. How much of the information in your business plan is rock solid facts and data? Unless you have direct experience with the market, customers, and stakeholders, it’s not likely to be based upon actual experience. In which case, you are simply not ready yet to write a business plan. This... (more)
