Book Image Not Available
Overview
This book of help focuses on practical suggestions and strategies that can be used to enable a person to survive well on a small or limited income. The book focuses on the coping process and the reprogramming of one's mind to be able to cope; in escaping from otherwise downward spiral life change. Diet, nutrition, eating (based on the Nathan Pritikin model); shopping; holidaying; being entertained; gaining materialism and looking after oneself are discussed in detail. Situations that land people on low income for example, illness, disability, unemployment, retrenchment; career change; retirement and pension are featured throughout. Basic budgeting and money management techniques are included. Welfare that can have the cumulative effect of depression, prospective suicide, and/or death is discussed. Conditions such as illness; disability; age retirement (pension); work related illness; unemployment and retrenchment are highlighted throughout. The book is illustrated with simple black line cartoon drawings (inspired by Elizabeth's pet cat) that feature a cat, an ant and mice that illustrate the therapeutic value of pets and the comedy in some life situations that can be prevalent during such times of stress and basic survival.
Description
This book of help focuses on practical suggestions and strategies that can be used to enable a person to survive well on a small or limited income. The underlying idea is to stretch the power of that money to two or three times its face value so it goes a lot further than it normally would. Then all sorts of personal life changes that must be made and the effect of same on a person's ego and mind are discussed. The book focuses on the coping process and the reprogramming of one's mind to be able to cope; in escaping from otherwise downward spiral life change. The importance of exercise and establishing a regular daily routine is included. Diet, nutrition, eating (based on the Nathan Pritikin model); shopping; holidaying; being entertained; gaining materialism and looking after oneself are discussed in detail. Situations that land people on low income for example, illness, disability, unemployment, retrenchment; career change; retirement and pension are featured throughout. The effect of cumulatively living on low income on the ego and psyche is also highlighted. Changing relationships in circles and with friends is included, as are basic budgeting and money management techniques. The author uses expert money management techniques acquired from ladies that lived through the effects of the second world war (and thrived) procuring for themselves everything that they needed. Some of same ladies became so thrifty that they gave themselves tax problems. Then it moves towards taking the reader on to a new emergent lifestyle and suggests ways that their limited amount of money can be used as a base to progress into small business ventures to hence, over a period of time, get them off various forms of welfare that can have the cumulative effect of depression, prospective suicide, and/or death. Conditions such as illness; disability; age retirement (pension); work related illness; unemployment and retrenchment are highlighted throughout. The book is illustrated with simple black line cartoon drawings that feature a cat, an ant and mice (inspired by Elizabeth's pet cat) that illustrate the therapeutic value of pets and the comedy in some life situations that can be prevalent during such times of stress and basic survival.
About the author
Dr. Elizabeth Wallace was born in West Yorkshire; England and was educated in England, Australia and the United States. She completed her Doctorate in Education, with distinction, in California. During her lifetime, Elizabeth had two parallel careers. Her prime career was in Education. Her second career was in Singing. Her prime career stemmed all sectors of Education from Kindergarten to Primary; to Secondary; to Vocational Education and Higher Education. Her (USA) Ph.D. Dissertation “Federal Education Policy 1991-2: Impact on Vocational Education and Training in Queensland, Australia”, was received as an original and outstanding contribution to the field of education and is held, along with some of her professional papers, in the National Library of Australia. In her second career, singing, http://www.elizabethwallacepopmusicuk.com Elizabeth was taken under the wing of professional Big Band jazz musicians in Australia. She sang with small groups initially and was then invited to become the regular band singer with the Brian King Big Band. Children's Stage shows backed by the 4IP and 4BH Radio Station Big Bands followed. Later still, her husband Teddy (1931-2008) encouraged and had her trained to take her place as a backing singer with his Big Band. Here with the Big Bands she was encouraged and nurtured by Liberace who predicted that when Elizabeth's main education career was over, she would take her place amongst world recording artists. She is now a singer/songwriter/pop recording artist; lives quietly in the United Kingdom; and releases her tunes in digital format predominantly on cdbaby; iTunes; HMV Digital; Amazon; 7Digital; Google; Sony Qriocity; Tesco MP3; Play.com; Real/Rhapsody; Napster; Muve Music; Nokia; Beezik; e-music; MySpaceMusic; We7; Tuneplay; Spotify and other global outlets. Her music is showcased on http://www.numberonemusic/elizabethwallace When life threatening illness came unexpectedly as a result of overwork, (referred to as 'karoshi' in Japan) Elizabeth found herself struggling. As she began recovery, she moved back into the pop and big band music field. During the writing of this book, she lived with an old (but wise) Bengal Cat,Tigz. Abandoned by people who had moved, one day Tigz arrived unannounced from the woods bordering her shrubbery. He had been surviving in the wild on a diet of water and mice. Skilfully avoiding the intense roundup of men with nets who had come from the pound, Tigz found he had nowhere to go. He slowly moved in with Elizabeth by mutual arrangement, and adopted her until he died. When she became ill, Tigz helped her slowly recover her health and inspired her to draw and produce the simple line drawing ‘Ant & Tiger’ Cartoons which are featured in this book. The ants kept busily running through the kitchen every time food was left out and Tigz had to be discouraged from bringing in mice for Elizabeth as offerings through his cat-flap. Elizabeth's recovery was a slow process. She is now the recording artist that Liberace (many years before her confidant and advisor) predicted she would become.
