Publisher's Summary

Is your life at work is spinning out of control?

Business people from New York to New Delhi are desperately trying to keep up with the speed of life. In today's global economy, jobs demand we respond to information immediately, outsmart and outsell the competition, manage the markets, and generally transform ourselves into business superstars while balancing quality time with family and friends. With hectic schedules and demands, there is no space left for peace and reflection, which are as essential as they are scarce today.

The Secret of the Seven Seeds tells of the successful entrepreneur and writer David Fischman's struggle with his out-of-control life. In this fascinating and instructive audiobook, he reveals his personal story through the fictional character Ignacio Rodriguez.

Ignacio is a 40-something stressed-out entrepreneur who is utterly overwhelmed. He is at risk for a heart attack, is losing money at his business (where employee morale is at an all-time low), and has no time or energy for his family. As his life spins out of control, his doctor recommends meditation to regain balance. A spiritual guide helps Ignacio heal by finding his path in the secret of the seven seeds...the path to success and balance in life: Self-knowledge, Meditation, Egolessness, Service to others, Goodness, Balance, and Freedom.

As Ignacio applies these seven seeds to his work life, he is transformed and becomes happier, more balanced, and ultimately more effective at work.

    "This is a path to happiness!"

    Overstressed? Overworked? This is for you! I loved the message and the way it was delivered. I plan to give this to all the people in my life who need to stop what they are doing and follow the lessons to be learned from this most interesting parable.

    "Pretty good"
    Where does The Secret of the Seven Seeds rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Upper half


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Secret of the Seven Seeds?

    Not to be overly caught up in the sensationalism of meditation but more onto its ability to help


    What does Jonathan Marosz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love this narrator
    He sounds similar to Chris Ryan and Brian Emerson
    A good narrator often makes or breaks the audio book and Marosz is definately one of my new favorites!!!!!!!!


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Secret of the Seven Seeds?

    Meditation
