Pamela Carey Nelson, business advisor and loans analyst, has written a book that she will launch in Kelowna. called Broke-Free Forever: Strategies to Break Free from Living Payday to Payday.
The book launching will take place Friday Sept. 23, from 6 to 8 p.m., at the Kelowna campus of Okanagan College.
“I believe our society is on the edge of a cultural shift,” Nelson says.
“With so much financial turbulence in the average household, we are at the tipping point to take control of our money habits and have greater control of our financial futures.
“But just like trying to lose weight or quit smoking, changing our money behaviour is not that simple or straight-forward.”
Unlike other personal money management books, Carey says Broke Free Forever incorporates proven methods and practices from the fields of psychology, health and business to address the reasons why budgets don’t work, understand what is required to change money-behaviour, improve self-control and eliminate the discrepancy between how money enters and exits our lives.
Nelson melds her practical approach and real-life experience with principles of business financial management and consumer behaviour, culminating in strategies to help anyone who wants to stop being broke, and break the cycle of living payday-to-payday, for good.
“In addition to the book, readers are encouraged to register for free access to the resource site, where they can access worksheets, spreadsheets, links and other resources,” Nelson says.
She will have more to say about the resource site and her new book at the launch party on Sept. 23.
