Bellingham, WA (PressExposure) May 06, 2009 -- Author and consultant, Susan Boskey, has taken off her gloves when it comes to advising her clients in today's uncertain economic environment. While the Fed and the Treasury hasten to reverse the current economic downturn, frugality has become all the rage. However Boskey warns her clients that they are still likely to be behind the eight ball if "belt tightening" is the only measure they take going forward.
"Frugality alone is not enough during this economic crisis. For everyday families to enjoy similar financial security as in times past, something more is needed." Boskey shatters conventional wisdom saying that traditional household finance strategies are basically outdated given today's economic environment. She states that the current environment requires access to a new personal finance formula for success; one that not only reevaluates how we spend but also how we earn, save and invest.
Her book, The Quality Life Plan: 7 Steps to Uncommon Financial Security sets out to reveal why this is critically important by proving how it is virtually impossible to make fully-informed personal finance decisions without considering a hidden piece of information about money. That missing piece is the role played by the monetary system and how it affects us directly.
Those seeking to increase their financial IQ and who want a genuine way out off the vicious hamster wheel of credit and debt will be both encouraged and empowered. Financial data is written in simple terms for real people in a step-by-step workbook style. Readers are able to take immediate steps to reverse course and regain control over their finances. Self-defeating habits naturally shift once money is seen in a new light. The Quality Life Plan leads the way to an entirely new and needed personal finance paradigm.
