Business Cents Front Cover

About the Book:  BUSINESS CENTS 

How could a simple turtle shell be the catalyst to strength, abundance, and prosperity? How can we hope to understand the workings of our vast world of business? It would be an impossible feat to acquaint you with all aspects of such enterprise in one book. However, this book will paint with a broad brush the components most essential to business and financial literacy. These elements will, in turn, provide you a wide-ranging financial vision in hopes of securing a clear, successful path to your future.

“Rick Birk’s Business Cents should be a primer on financial literacy for every high school student. Covering real life knowledge such as accounting basics; understanding how the real estate market works; navigating all of the various types of insurance available; to what it means to budget vs. finance. Business Cents is a great resource for preparing any young person just staring out in life for the ins and outs of adulthood.  I wish I had come across this book when I was younger. Mr. Birk’s writing style is engaging and he provides practical examples and stories that help bring to life the concepts he’s exploring.” 

-Kim Graham, Executive Director, Arizona Educational Foundation.

Dedgeville cover

About the Book: Dodgeville: Capturing Hearts

In 1963 Dodgeville Coach John “Weenie” Wilson was on a mission to both nurture and build a class of champions and further enhance Dodgeville pride. Coach Wilson, a highly accomplished athlete and motivator in his own right, would take a group of gifted, dedicated, hard-working student-athletes, indoctrinated with small-town values and put them on a course that lifted the Dodgeville basketball program to undreamed-of heights, to state and even national prominence. Just how did he go about adding to this legacy that was already such a source of pride? All of this is a phenomenon that is curious, instructive, and, above all, inspiring. This is the Dodgeville Story.

“Rick Birk’s portrayal of a small American town capturing a gold trophy against immense odds in high school basketball signifies one of the greatest achievements in the state of Wisconsin championship annals.  I have had the sincere honor of meeting many of the members of the team and coaching staff over the years and they have all represented the city of Dodgeville in a first-class manner. Dennis Morgan, who played for Coach Wilson and graduated the year before the state championship, served as one of my assistant coaches at UW-Platteville. He told me many, many stories and showed me how much he learned from the Dodgeville coaching staff and his teammates. Long live the memories of this small community’s success, when the world of Wisconsin high school basketball was all one class.” 
-Bo Ryan, men’s head basketball coach at the University of Wisconsin and named 2012-2013 Big Ten Coach of the Year.

Finding Adam Cover

About the Book: Finding Adam Empowering Susan

Adam Michael Evans, a scientist, is content to work quietly behind the scenes. As fate would have it, he is assigned a project that not only acquaints him with agoraphobia, but more importantly opens the door to a new world he never realized could exist. His spellbinding journey takes him on a wild adventure spiriting him through a maze of regression therapy, reincarnation, and genealogy until lending, at last, a sober glimpse of the truth. Adam’s story shows not just the timeless, powerful forces of nature, but our own equally timeless and powerful abilities to understand where we have been, why we are, and thus who we are.

“Past Life Regression is a way to unlock the door to the past. Rick Birk uses this tool in the case of Adam Evans, a conscientious man whose phobia seems to hinge on some bizarre event in his past. His journey inspires us to take stock of our own lives and self-awareness. It is all about coming together in life, in history and with the people in our lives.”

TheBestAllAroundCover

About the Book: The Best All Around: A Story of Sport

The Best All Around is more than a story of a unique sports contest. This book poses some intriguing questions. Who really is the “Best All Around” athlete? What is the standard of measurement? Has our age of so much specialization caused the general athlete to become extinct? Dan Driver’s struggle, played out in America’s heartland, serves to answer these questions. This is a story of the sport—a story of America.

“The Best All Around is a fascinating, inspiring, and motivating book. It is encouraging to see how two overworked accountants create love, passion, and excitement in their lives by merely doing what they are truly passionate about—sports. Who is the Best All Around Athlete? He or she may be hard to find in this specialized world of sports we now live in. The scenes in the book read so real that it feels that the reader is watching the grueling three-day competition live in the stadium. It is a must read for athletes, sport fans, and all those who want to step outside the box and take a risk to find what they are truly passionate about.”
-Sabine Krieger, M.S., Northern Arizona University All-American, German heptathlon champion, three-year top-twenty world ranking
