Title: Surviving the Recession

Survive the Recession, Discover How to Cut Costs and Win the Recession Game!

Unless you've been hiding under a rock, you are aware of the current state of the economy. There doesn't seem to be an end in sight. It affects all of us either directly or indirectly.

This isn't something "new." We've been through this before. The only upside of our situation this time is that we now have more sophisticated ways to share information.

When faced with an economic crisis, either individually or collectively, our first inclination is to cut out luxuries. That's a pretty obvious step to take. It's just the first step, however. Sometimes we are so close to a problem we just can't "see the forest for the trees."

The first thing to understand is that you are in this by yourself. There are no magic bullets or safety nets poised to soften the landing when you fall off the cliff. You have to look out for you and yours because no one else is going to do it.

We believe we have the answers to your questions about where to begin your quest on fighting the recession monster. "Surviving the Recession" is just what the doctor ordered to cure your recession ills.

In his capacity as an advertising agency VP of Creative Services, Douglas worked closely with one of his state's largest banks and one of its largest savings & loan institutions. These experiences taught him many of the financial tips and tricks you will find throughout this book.

Douglas knows from personal experience how difficult it can be to survive financially during tough times. As a 23-year old, Douglas found himself supporting a wife and baby on less than $5500 a year. This led him to a strong interest in personal money management, which has lasted throughout his adult life.

"My life was very difficult for a number of years," Douglas recently said. Given these experiences, he decided to learn everything he could about cutting costs and saving money. "While these times were tough," he said, 'I was able to get through them by learning many of the money-saving techniques I have included in this book."
