Book Summary: Cash in a Flash - Fast Money in Slow Times - By Mark Victor Hansen and Robert Allen

Mon, 12 Dec 2011 12:42:12 -0600

I read one of Robert Allen's books back in the late 90's called Multiple Streams of Income. This was and is a great book and is more relevant today than before. Think about it. Years ago, one person could work and support the family and then both spouses needed to work to support the family. In times like this, two people working are not enough because of the job situation and pricing pressures on living expenses.

The Real Cost of Living by Carmen Wong Ulrich

Wed, 23 Mar 2011 16:26:06 -0500

Each decision we make has consequences, both costs and benefits. And costs are not always financial, but can be personal. "The Real Cost of Living: Making the Best Choices for You, Your Life, and Your Money" by Carmen Wong Ulrich is a book that can help you make better decisions that involve money, but are not all about money. I like that the book looks at other costs associated with the topics in this book, and not just at the price tag or how much money is involved. Across the top of the back cover there is a line that says, "Life Isn't Always About Money." That is so true, and this book will help people recognize some of the other ingredients, costs, and benefits from the decisions one makes.
