Everything you ever wanted to know about starting out (or over) on a shoestring. This book covers everything from clothing and personal items to furniture, appliances and transportation with everything in-between.
The author draws from personal experience to show others that you CAN start out (or over) with very little and you CAN make a success of the endeavor. You don't have to suffer, but you do have to have certain basic items. This book takes the guesswork out of what you will need.
Jane Cabrera s boldly colored rendition of a favorite rhyme gets an ecofriendly spin. This old woman and her household of high-spirited children and talented pets are resourceful. Together they repair their broken furniture, find alternative modes of transportation when the car breaks down and remake worn clothing with colorful patches. Sheet music for piano, voice and guitar are included in the book."
The history of transportation is a long and interesting one. Travel was not always as easy and fun as it is today. In the past travel was hard, dirty and slow. Present travel is fast, easy and clean. For millennia travel was by foot or draft animal. Through most of human history people traveled as little as possible. The industrial age revolutionized travel by birthing modern transportation modes. Transportation methods between then and now have changed dramatically. Humans have an insatiable need to travel, to see new things and to find out what is just over the horizon. A Short History of Transportation outlines the history of our transition from walking. Instead of walking, we now travel by chariots of the air that can whisk us from one end of the earth to another in just a matter of hours. It has been a fantastic journey from walking airplanes. From watercraft to horses, the automobile and airplane, the story has included many chapters. Now we stand at the dawn of space flight and the many new developments in transportation that beckon. It is certain that we have not finished traveling this road. Perhaps the next centuries will be as exciting as the last ones were.
Debt-free, a comfortable home, a good life, independence. Those are things we all wish for. Working for a salary isn't likely to get them for us, though, since our wages don't keep up with inflation, much less get us ahead of the curve. The only way to enjoy the life we want is to be able to set our own income and the only way to do that is to operate our own successful business. The Shoestring Manual help you do just that. Instead of a business plan, the Shoestring Manual provides a game plan. Laid out in a simple, easy to understand format, it is a "follow the steps" type of instruction. It begins by guiding you to choose the best business for your skills and talents and ends with a client paying you. All you do is fill in the blanks one at a time to create a small business that works. Think about your life and what you want for yourself, your wife, and your children. If things don't look promising today, what's tomorrow likely to be? One sure thing is that if you keep doing what you're doing, you'll keep getting what you're getting. To change your future, you have to change your present.
