(Author Ty Kearns) Five Hours North: A Memoir of Outlaw Farming on California's Cannabis Frontier
Book Description
From Amazon: "The colorful true adventures of an unexpected “pot-star” turned cannabis CEO in the new Wild West of California’s green rush.

Don’t give anyone your real name. 

Never say anything to your loved ones.

Always have a full tank of gas, a jump starter, and an alibi.

The year is 2008, and the green rush is taking root in Humboldt County, California. Born and raised in this “Emerald Triangle” famous for its natural beauty and perfect cannabis-growing conditions, Ty Kearns wants no part of it. He has seen too many friends and acquaintances lose or derail their lives for the green dream, always feeling the itch for more cash and more power.

But as a college student with tuition to pay—and few options in the middle of the worst recession since the Great Depression—Ty is willing to try almost anything.

When his eccentric Uncle Bob introduces him to some local growers, the rules of the industry start to dominate Ty’s double life. He spends his days taking notes in lecture halls and his nights and weekends five hours north at his secret farm in the mountains, where danger and beauty are as tangible as the plants themselves.

Soon, he is more successful than he ever could have imagined—more successful than just about any other grower on the mountain. But he faces natural disasters, animal encounters, the gossip mill, the authorities, the highs and lows of first love, and a crowd of “trimmigrants” and pot-star groupies as he grapples with the damage that growing does to his mental health and the land itself.

Today, Ty is the CEO of SEVEN LEAVES, a fully licensed cannabis cultivation operation with product in over four hundred stores and a commitment to 100 percent green energy. But his path to sustainable growing was long and gnarly. Growing pot wasn’t Ty’s plan, but he found his calling when he stepped out of the shadow of the mountain.

A coming-of-age journey where the truth is stranger than fiction, Five Hours North tells the story of the lost pre-legalization weed scene, when the characters were larger than life and the growers were always one step from disaster."

What the Pet Food Industry Is Not Telling You: Developing Good Practices for a Healthier Dog guides you in making the very best decisions for your dog and helps to stop the unnecessary toxicity and pain of dogs around the world!

What the Pet Food Industry Is Not Telling You was written out of the mad love Dr. Stephanie Krol has for her dogs, past and present, as well as the pain and trauma felt when faced with a serious situation relevant to her current dog’s health, as she navigated the traditional medical system trying to make the right choice. Each chapter is a "thank you" to all those who helped her make the best decisions for her dog, as well as a “pay it forward”, from what she has learned throughout the process. Her book also provides the listener with diet options.

Dr. Krol’s goal is to share the knowledge gained in the healing of her dog, in the hope it will spare the pain of all dogs (and cats) around the world! This book will help you glean information needed to help your dog live the longest, happiest life possible.

The Bronze Scar, Understanding How PTSD Feels
Book Description
The Bronze Scar will help those with PTSD know they are not alone. Steve West pulls no punches. He never hides his faults while being completely transparent and speaking from his heart. The book is a powerful account of what goes through his head and how he feels at any given moment. Those with PTSD will easily recognize these thoughts and feelings in themselves. Gaining insight can make it easier to explain to others.

The book will also help families, friends, and colleagues who deal with the imbalances daily by detailing Steve’s experiences. If people can better understand what really happens when someone with PTSD finds their anxiety on the rise, it will help them respond in helpful, non-judgmental ways.
One of the great disadvantages of living with a person with PTSD is not having a point of reference. Being unable to relate to a loved one with PTSD causes frustration. The one with PTSD often lashes out and hurts those who invest in them the most.

This book helps explain how PTSD feels so that those who suffer and their families can, hopefully, understand each other a little better. It leads to the point where we can talk intelligently about this experience, which is a sufficiently positive starting point.

Not everyone can be cured, but everyone can find a certain level of healing. This healing stems from an understanding of the inner turbulence and the external manifestations of PTSD. There is comfort in realizing you are not alone.

The Mistakes That Make Us: Cultivating a Culture of Learning and Innovation
Book Description
We all make mistakes. What matters is learning from them, as individuals, teams, and organizations. This award-winning book shows you how.

Winner! 2023 Goody Business Book Awards, Business Problem-Solving Category

The Mistakes That Make Us: Cultivating a Culture of Learning and Innovation is an engaging, inspiring, and practical book by Mark Graban that presents an alternative approach to mistakes. Rather than punishing individuals for human error and bad decisions, Graban encourages us to embrace and learn from them, fostering a culture of learning and innovation.

Sharing stories and insights from his popular podcast, “My Favorite Mistake,” along with his own work and career experiences, Graban shows how leaders can cultivate a culture of learning from mistakes. Including examples from manufacturing, healthcare, software, and two whiskey distillers, the book explores how organizations of all sizes and industries can benefit from this approach.

In the book, you'll find practical guidance on adopting a positive mindset towards mistakes. It teaches you to acknowledge and appreciate them and take necessary measures to avoid them while gaining knowledge from the ones that occur. Additionally, it emphasizes creating a safe environment to express mistakes and encourages responding constructively by emphasizing learning over punishment.

Developing a culture of learning from mistakes through psychological safety is essential in effective leadership and organizational success. Leaders must lead by example and demonstrate kindness to themselves and others by accepting their own blunders instead of solely pushing for more courage from their team. This approach, as Graban highlights, fosters a positive and productive work environment.

The Mistakes That Make Us is a must-read for anyone looking to create a stronger organization that produces better results, including lower turnover, more improvement and innovation, and better bottom-line performance. Whether a startup founder or an aspiring leader in a larger company, this book will inspire you to lead with kindness and humility and show you how mistakes can make things right.
