All proceeds (100%) from the sale of First Things First go to hunger relief organizations, and organizations that rehabilitate wounded veterans. To see a list of these organizations, or to buy hardcopies of First Things First, visit: www.tomiselin.com.Lined with bold messages and practical advice, First Things First (Pelican Lake Press, $25.00, 223 pp.) takes readers on an insightful journey of how to build a high-performance nonprofit. "Too often early stage nonprofits want to do what's convenient, not what's important," says Iselin, who has spent the last 20 years building some of the nation's most innovative nonprofits. "The nonprofit world is filled with passionate people eager to make a difference. Their intentions are noble, but most leaders of early stage nonprofits lack the experience needed to build a quality organization. They tend to take short cuts, penny pinch, and make hasty decisions. The result is costly disruptions, operational migraines, and in some cases, failure."First Things First is a guidebook for leaders of early stage nonprofits (0-6 years old) and small nonprofits (budgets less than $3 million). It focuses on a set of governing principles, operational structures, and practical tactics board members, executives, and managers should adopt and apply early on in their business lifecycle if they are serious about fulfilling their missions and building sustainable nonprofits of superior quality. Each chapter provides a case study example that relates chapter topics to experiences Iselin had during the five years he spent as chief executive at SVAS. Readers see how the SVAS staff and board overcame a host of challenging situations to create a pathway for the organization to develop pioneering programming and effective operations that propelled SVAS to national recognition and acclaim.What makes First Things First different from other "getting started" and "growing your nonprofit" books is that the principles and tactics found in this book are often overlooked and understated, or leaders wait too long to adopt and apply them. Iselin notes, "Seasoned leaders know costly mistakes made early on can have long-term consequences that can derail the dreams and momentum of fulfilling a worthy mission. First Things First shows leaders how to avoid common mistakes and how critical it is to make important decisions early on that might not seem obvious or intuitive."In the book, readers learn how to hire the best staff and nominate the best board members by identifying a set of uncommon attributes. They learn how to efficiently leverage their human capital, how to unravel the mysteries of developing a healthy relationship between board members and a chief executive, how to develop an engaging culture, how to build a brand that captures the attention of national media, how to raise big money from major donors using rarely applied fundraising techniques, how to dodge the traps of "lip service" passion, and much, much more. The book provides dozens of practical tactics and tips that leaders can quickly put into practice. Most importantly, First Things First teaches leaders how to think about the process of building and operating a high-performance nonprofit. They learn how they do what they do is more important than what they do, and just because they can do something doesn't mean they should do it. First Things First is receiving praise for its hard-hitting, yet inspiring analysis. Iselin says what many in the nonprofit industry are too afraid to say. He addresses sensitive issues such as personal accountability and moral obligations, yet his encouraging words and useful advice give readers hope that their nonprofits can become triumphant successes if they are willing to do the right things, right from the start.

Challenging policymakers, educators, reformers, and citizens to replace piecemeal reforms with fundamental redesign, First Things First! calls for a different way of organizing the American primary school. Ruby Takanishi outlines a new framework for integrating early education with primary education (pre-K–5), including both short- and long-term strategies, that starts with 3- and 4-year-olds. Featuring portraits of primary schools that have successfully integrated pre–K, the book includes resources on dual-language learners, dual-generation family engagement, effective philanthropy, rethinking advocacy, and more. The book centers on four basic questions: Why should the United States design a new primary school as children’s first, widely shared educational experience? How can the educators of the new primary school use new knowledge about how children learn to improve their practice? What will it take to create a new primary school that educates all children well? How can the design of the new primary school reflect demographic, social, linguistic, and cultural changes and adapt to the requirements of a global economy? First Things First! reframes the basic structure of traditional primary education, challenging us to get the early years of a 21st-century public education system off to a new and stronger start. “The vision of a new primary school model in this book should be studied by all workers in the fields of education, human development, and social policy. The scholarship in this book is impeccable and the arguments advanced by this leading scholar are most convincing. Further, the book is beautifully written.” —Edward Zigler, Sterling Professor of Psychology Emeritus, Yale University “Takanishi makes a compelling case that enabling all American children to achieve their potential requires both expansion of high-quality preschool and fundamental changes in how our public elementary schools serve young students.” —Sara Mead, Bellwether Education Partners “Dr. Takanishi has laid out a vision and approach to schooling that is comprehensive, forward-looking, and versed in strong evidence. This is must-reading for educators, leaders, policymakers, and researchers.” —Arthur Reynolds, University of Minnesota

Silicon Valley pioneer Ray Zinn, CEO of top microchip company Micrel for 37 years, shows entrepreneurs and executives how to lead and succeed by tackling the Tough Things First In high school, Ray Zinn’s track coach told him he was too short to run the hurdles. Ray took this as a challenge and, after months of hard training, became the fastest hurdler on the team. That drive and self-discipline is, to Zinn, the essence of the entrepreneurial spirit. It’s what pushed him to achieve the impossible, founding a Silicon Valley microchip company—without venture capital—and turning it into a global empire with an enviable 37-year track record as CEO. Tough Things First, the distillation of Ray Zinn’s astonishing career as CEO of Micrel, is a comprehensive head-to-toe training program for entrepreneurs and leaders—based on hard-won lessons in business and in life. Zinn’s tough-love approach gives you the guidance you need to: • Find your vision, set your goals, and make them happen • Build your business like you’d train your body: with heart, soul, mind, and passion • Master the psychological disciplines that will sharpen your focus and drive • Create a corporate culture that engages employees and inspires confidence • Put people first and push them to achieve their personal best • Tackle the tough jobs today—and ensure your success tomorrow Zinn tells you what it takes to succeed in a world where markets are constantly changing, new technologies are emerging, and small startups are going head to head with industry giants. He shows you how to be a good leader and what you can do to make yourself even better. He reveals why discipline is the first and most important step—for the entrepreneur and the organization—and why people are your single most valuable resource. He offers practical, no-nonsense advice on processes and procedures, finances and growth creation, changing markets and new technology. But that’s not all. The key to your success, Zinn explains, lies in your mind, your body, your vision, and your heart. This book shows you how to develop these interconnected skills, how to integrate them into your life and work, and how to handle the tough things first. As the trailblazing founder and CEO of Micrel, Inc., one of the world’s leading microchip companies, Ray Zinn bootstrapped his company, achieved consistent profitability, and delivered a total equity value of more than $800 million at its acquisition. In 37 years of leading this publicly traded microchip empire, he saw it through the dot-com bust and Great Recession—with only one unprofitable year—relying on his discipline as a leader, passion as an inventor, and training as an athlete. In 2015, Zinn stepped down as Micrel’s CEO and is in the process of launching a Silicon Valley accelerator that will help business visionaries build profitable, enduring companies.

We think that we know the first three chapters of the Bible well - Creation and the Fall, we say, knowingly. But have we ever stopped to consider that Jesus in the book of Revelation is called 'the last Adam' and the 'Alpha & Omega'? Are you tangled up on origins in Genesis? Then this may be your way through the maze.
