What's the Secret Recipe for Success???

"Recipe for Success" covers several teaching subjects such as:


Business / Family & 
Consumer Science
■ Economics 
■ World History / Geography





Sylvia Banda knows the secret to success. She's taken her passion for food and cooking turning it into one of the strongest food service corporations in the African Republic of Zambia.

She started by making fritters to sell to her classmates, then opened her own restaurant after college. On opening day, she realized there was more to running a food business than just cooking - she'd forgotten to have chairs for her customers! She bartered with a neighbor for chairs and eventually became a successful food entrepreneur who's helping other Zambians improve their lives.

Changes in economic policies made the difference for Sylvia and other Zambians. What kinds of changes could explain the rise from one of the lowest ranked countries on the Economic Freedom Index to being equal to Poland and France in just 15 years?

Find out....as Sylvia shares her "secret" recipe for success.

New Release: "Power to the Planet"




We need energy for many things, including lighting, cooking , transporting, heating & cooling....But which energy source is the best? What are the trade-offs of each?



Pollution needs to be considered, as well as availability. What else should we factor in as we decide what's best? Is there even such a thing as "the one best source?"


Travel the globe with scholar Johan Norberg, from Morocco to Sweden and throughout the United States, as he explores the pros and cons of the eight main energy sources available to us: coal, oil, natural gas, nuclear, hydroelectric, biomass, wind and solar.
