Financial Recovery – a Book Review

I work with small business owners on the personal side of being in business. One of the most personal aspects of business, which is usually the least talked about is personal and professional finances. However, what happens when a business owner is sloppy about the finances? Bankruptcy, closed doors, lost jobs, broken dreams are just the beginning. Let’s say it just isn’t pretty.

Because small business owners are among those suffering during this economically stressful time Andrew Barber-Starkey of ProCoach Systems suggested I read “Financial Recovery” written by Karen McCall. What is happening as a result of my read is clarifying inspiring and enlightening to say the least. Having read it I immediately thought of my some of my clients who are struggling and recommended it to them. They, like many of the people in her case studies, are seeing positive results.

Are you plagued by Under earning? Doing without? Making do? Overspending? Why? Do you find yourself making choices you know are not in your best financial interest but rationalize your way around those choices anyway? Why? Karen gets you to the root cause behind those choices. But she doesn’t stop there. She provides good solid steps for getting out of debt and changing those behaviors for good. It isn’t necessarily easy to make those changes, but she provides you step by step instructions with real life case studies showing how those small steps can make a big difference. She also provides software designed for those of us for whom working with numbers is a major challenge all of its own.

Are you ready for something different for yourself, your kids, and your business? Check out “Financial Recovery”. You’ll be glad you did!

  1. Great read. Valuable advice. I’m certainly guilty of contributing to my own financial demise with bad habits as I seem to be on a roller coaster ride of highs & lows. I am reminded of Harv Eker’s Millionaire Mind Intensive & Harv’s concepts of a “money thermostat” we unconsciously set to certain number & his ways of becoming self-aware enough to change one’s thinking & rewire our neurons thru certain modified brain gym exercises. I’ve read some neurologists – can’t recall the name – think this is simplistic hogwash that borders on magickal thinking. Then I’ve read of the research of quantum physics who say, hey, focused mental energy can change reality.

    I respect any book or article Andrew Barber-Starkey recommends reading to educate myself on these matters.

    In the bigger scheme of things, however, the book rests upon the assumption the current economy system, even if stressed, is still a healthy context in which to practice. As the current global economic & financial structure is in a state of crisis severe enough to be too close to the edge of Collapse, some of those details may no longer be relevant. And I wager that good, productive habits will “work” regardless of what economic system we function in. It all goes back to me & my habits & you & yours & our self-awareness of them followed by the willingness to be disciplined & diligent.

    Thank you.

  2. William: I’m in a pod squad of readers who are working our way through the book. I think your point is valid – the future rests on our willingness to take responsibility for our choices and the principles that guide those choices.
