Resource of the month

What The Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast by Laura Vanderkam.  For the value price of $2.99 you can pick up some serious gems to jump start your day.  This yummy little book will inspire you to rethink your morning routine, finding ways to improve your productivity and increase your joy.  As reviewers put it, "Drawing on real-life anecdotes and scientific research that shows why the early hours of the day are so important, Vanderkam reveals how successful people use mornings to help them accomplish things that are often impossible to take care of later in the day. While many of us are still in bed, these folks are scoring daily victories to improve their health, careers, and personal lives without sacrificing their sanity." Learning to get an improved return on your morning time sounds like a great investment to me!

About MoneyZen

Manisha's MoneyZen work is an outgrowth of her quest to identify simple, joyful methods that we can all use to feel calmer and more balanced in our relationship to money. Despite the abundance of personal finance books, magazines, radio programs and TV shows that have exploded into our lives over the past two decades, most of us struggle to find financial sanity, security and serenity. Rather than help us eliminate money pain, all this information has left us feeling overwhelmed and confused. We need fresh wisdom to break out of the cycle of despair and create lives of abundance.
