Manage Your Energy: Get More Done and Have More Fun, 2nd Edition
Wolf J. Rinke, PhD, RDN

Copyright 2020 Wolf Rinke Associates, Inc.


Lisa Schafer: "The education on networking was most valuable to me."

Victoria Chouklina: "I really enjoyed how this course encouraged finding a job that feels like play to become more successful and have more energy. I will adapt more of a ready, fire, aim perspective."

Madalyn Hay: "Extremely valuable and motivating and inspiring. Very supportive to readers to Do What You Love and Love What You Do. "30% of working Americans are engaged, 20% are actively disengaged and 50% are not engaged."

Diana Winters: "The insight and humor breaks were uplifting. The information focuses on the positives and provides tools that can be applied to any situation. The personal stories were interesting."

Paula Alworth: "I liked the concept of "managing one's energy" because it expresses the truth that one should take care of every aspect of one's self. It will be easier to be successful in life if our whole self is in the best state of well-being that it can be in."
