Garry Cox, retired educator and poet released a new poetry book, “Coffee with the Bard: 2020 Blues.” This book provides deep reflections from the challenges of the past year and gives readers hope for the future.

Cox wrote “Coffee with the Bard: 2020 Blues” during the coronavirus pandemic. Rooted in love, this book begins with the poem, I Had a Life, dedicated to the memory of his late wife Bernice.

“For years, I wrote a poem every morning for Bernice on a dry erase board at home, before I left for work. She enjoyed the poems and they let her know how much I loved her.  I hope this book inspires others to read and write poetry for people they love as well.”

Finding poetry as an outlet during challenging times is common. In a New York Times article, title Broadway is Closed. Write Poems Instead.  Sarah Ruhl explains, “During the 1590s plague, when the theaters were shut, William Shakespeare apparently chose to write poems instead.” 

Additionally, an article in The Atlantic, by Daniel Pollack – Pelzner titled, Shakespear Wrote His Best Work During a Plague explains,“he (Shakespear) published his popular narrative poem, Venus and Adonis” during a catastrophic time.

Similarly, “Coffee with the Bard:2020 Blues” is Cox’s most creative work to date. It is his third poetry book in the past five years. His other books include “The Waters of Appanoose County” and “Beyond the Waters.”

Although this book is written with the same passion,  it is different from his first two books, because it combines poetry with visual art. Each new section of the book begins with a visual creative piece that lets readers into the mind of the author.

“Coffee with the Bard: 2020 Blues” is available on Amazon in ebook and paperback formats. Cox also has a forth coming audiobook that will be available soon.

Certified Financial Planner, Speaker, And Daily Money Manager Teri Rogowski Hits Four Amazon Best Seller Lists with “Peace of Mind for Money Matter$”

Published

on

“Peace of Mind for Money Matter$” by Teri Rogowski made an impressive entrance on the day of release, landing top spots on Amazon’s Best Seller Lists in the categories of personal budgeting and personal financial management on May 18, 2021.

Certified Financial Planner™, speaker, and daily money manager Teri Rogowski‘s recent release, Peace of Mind for Money Matter$ hit four Amazon best seller lists on May 18, 2021, earning top placement in multiple personal finance categories. The book also garnered number one placement on four new release lists at its debut.

The insights and information in this book are based on true life experiences. Filled with practical, easy-to-understand, actionable steps to understanding personal finance, the book demystifies financial terminology about insurance, banking, and borrowing. It removes the confusion and overwhelm and helps readers create order to what can be money matter chaos.

Due to illness, divorce or other unexpected life events, the responsibility of paying bills and monitoring finances often falls upon a spouse or younger generation. For anyone suddenly been thrust into the role of financial caretaker for a loved one and feeling unprepared to manage these new responsibilities, this book is an essential guide for understanding and navigating this new journey.

Data from the Pew Research Center shows that twelve percent of parents are part of the “sandwich generation.” Many in this generation (typically people in their thirties or forties, responsible for bringing up their own children and for the care of their aging parents) do not live in close proximity and have extraordinary demands of work and childcare.  The content of Peace of Mind for Money Matter$ is a must read for members of the sandwich generation, caregivers, those facing a life transition, or seeking a guide for understanding how personal finance works.

In response to the success of the book at its release, Rogowski shared, “I am thrilled to provide this resource to the public.  So many people are confused and experience both anxiety and stress tied to managing basic financial matters. Early readers have shared that the information was presented in a way which made it easy to understand and instilled confidence in tackling financial tasks, both for themselves and those who depend on them for help in this area.”

The book is available in both paperback and Kindle on Amazon

Britt Bolnick, Business Mentor and Author, Hits Eight Amazon Best Seller Lists with “The Magick of Bending Time in Your Sacred Business”

Published

on

“The Magick of Bending Time in Your Sacred Business” by Britt Bolnick made an impressive entrance on the day of release, appearing on eight Amazon Best Seller lists and landing in the number one spot in multiple categories on May 13, 2021.

Britt Bolnick‘s recent release, The Magick of Bending Time in Your Sacred Business Time Management for Freedom-Seeking Entrepreneurial Women and Organizational Skeptics hit eight Amazon best seller lists on May 13, 2021, climbing all the way to number one in Women and business, Time management, and Business mentoring and coaching. The book also appeared on six new release lists and has a strong ranking on Amazon in Canada and the UK.

Time is the most precious resource for anyone who wants to do the work they love. This book is a powerful guide for discovering how to put yourself and your passions front and center when there’s so much to do and the day is spent on other people’s priorities. For women doing work they love (or longing to do that), this book holds keys for creating a schedule that finally reflects what you truly want to be doing with your life and allows you to build your empire without fear of what it will cost you.

In response to the success of the book on launch day, Bolnick shared, “I’m thrilled to get this book into the hands of as many women as possible, the world over. Too many of us shrink ourselves and our potential success and impact because of a fear of what it will cost us, and this book is a clear path and plan to move from fear to empowerment around your time, your wealth, and your work.”

With the recent challenge of COVID, balancing work and family as well as impending return to the workplace for many women post-COVID, understanding how to balance the work we love, the people we care about, and our own self-care without compromise or sacrifice is more important than ever. Now, even more so than before COVID,  the subject matter of The Magick of Bending Time in Your Sacred Business is a hot topic and a must read for women regardless of profession or phase of life.      

The book is available in both paperback and Kindle versions on Amazon

5 Personal Finance and Budgeting Books Recommended by Experts

Published

on

Budgeting books can give you a different perspective on your finances and help you make plans for your money.

The five books below come recommended by certified financial planners. These professionals have taken loads of financial-planning coursework, passed a brutal exam, logged thousands of hours in experience and committed to acting as a fiduciary.

Who better to recommend a budgeting book?

(These CFPs responded by email, and a few answers have been edited for length and clarity.)

‘The One-Page Financial Plan’ by Carl Richards

“This book makes you think about what’s important to you and how you can align your money with your values. It’s also written in plain English, with little to no industry jargon. Because of that, I think it’s helpful for people of all ages.”

— Serina Shyu, an Atlanta-based CFP who serves on the board of directors for the Financial Planning Association of Georgia

‘Live Richer Challenge’ by Tiffany Aliche

“This is a great and quick read for those looking to build their financial foundation — including how to budget. The author, Tiffany ‘The Budgetnista’ Aliche, takes a back-to-the-basics approach to budgeting and savings, debt and credit, insurance and investing.

“Those just starting their financial journey will get the most out of this book because it’s an easy read that touches on the key elements of building a solid financial foundation.”

— Brent Weiss, a St. Petersburg, Florida-based CFP and co-founder of Facet Wealth

‘Land of the Fee’ by Devin Fergus

“If you’ve ever wondered why closing costs on a mortgage are so high, or why you get charged twice to pull money from an ATM that doesn’t belong to your bank, or why you get charged an origination fee when you take out a personal loan, read this book.

“Deregulation of the banking systems in the 1980s led to lower consumer protections and gave the financial industry the ability to charge arbitrary fees on their products and services. We tend to get so laser-focused on our own personal finances without questioning how the system has been structured to work against us.

“If it ever feels like your personal finances are always taking one step forward and 10 steps back, learning about how the financial industry is run can help you navigate it and advocate for yourself.”

— Pamela Capalad, a New York-based CFP and founder of Brunch & Budget

Know-how for budget building

Budgeting 101: Review your connected accounts in one place to spot your overall trends.

 

‘Zero Debt: The Ultimate Guide to Financial Freedom’ by Lynnette Khalfani-Cox

“Lynnette speaks to the reader from a life-lived experience point of view, and she offers practical steps to help people implement their debt-elimination strategy literally from day one. Lynnette’s story about how she was able to eliminate debt is inspiring to anyone who might feel overwhelmed by debt and need help.

“Even though Lynnette’s book has debt elimination in the title, having that serve as the goal and financial freedom as the why helps people understand the rationale for establishing a budget in the first place.

“Her book is for individuals who are just starting and want to avoid getting in over their heads. It’s also for individuals who find it difficult to plan or break their spending habits.”

— Frank Paré, an Oakland, California-based CFP and founder of PF Wealth Management Group

‘What to Do With Your Money When Crisis Hits’ by Michelle Singletary

“I had the opportunity to tune in for [Singletary’s] book talk and in fact listened to the book with my daughter. I love her clear, concise, actionable advice. It not only helps anyone prepare for a financial crisis, but also develop a plan for a brighter and stronger financial future.”

— Marguerita Cheng, a Gaithersburg, Maryland-based CFP and CEO of Blue Ocean Global Wealth
