    Congratulations Liz on your new job at Nerdwallet! I will follow your blog thereunto. Hope you still keep a presence in Facebook. Since the economic shock of 2008 my small business coasted to its closing in 2010. There was no plan B for surprisingly the industry went through a disgraceful turn of events. Only recently has that industry shown signs of sprouting back to life. I’m slowly accomplishing almost unnoticed -and with a string budget plus credit 0% repay- the home remodeling we despearately need while also inspired into writing a book. After 4 mishaps and two departed pets , one still fills the hearts with encouragement. Even if I do not win, I think that writer’s experience may bring new avenues for me to explore; a win non the less backed with faith, hope, determination and gratitude for a serendipitous marital bliss at the dawn of the burst which provides the alluded to string budget for remodeling . Therefore I have decided to purchase a copy of this book you are about to give away. Happy New Year at Nerdwallet!

  38. This is so timely for me! I hope I win.

  39. Awesome news Liz…. Would love to read this book. Blog-on!!
