Don't Worry, Make Money: Spiritual and Practical Ways to Create Abundance and More Fun in Your Life

by Richard Carlson

"Richard Carlson provides one hundred new strategies for living more fully and worrying less as a means of attracting more wealth and abundance in our lives. Often we get into the trap of thinking that the only way to earn a good living is to stay late at the office, feeling stressed out and full of anxiety. However, this can actually get in the way of having a productive and rewarding career, and can drastically decrease our earnings. In thought-provoking, unique pieces, Carlson shows us how to invest in the market, instead of worrying about it; how to get real mileage out of reflection; how to make a truly great impression on clients; how taking your lunch break (instead of working through it) may pay off in more ways than you think; and how we shouldn't rely on too much data in making decisions." "Accept the fact that you can make excuses, or you can make money, but you can't do both," Carlson tells us, as he shows us how to spend most of our work time on the "critical inch" of our business, instead of on the peripheral agendas that don't really earn the big bucks. He tells us how to be prepared to walk away from any negotiation, and how this attitude will help us to strike better deals. And he reveals specific money strategies, such as why it's better to buy large deductible insurance, how to decide between a fixed and variable interest rate on a mortgage, and how to save two years of living expenses for when the unexpected happens." "Full of interesting and unique ideas for the overworked business person, Don't Worry, Make Money shows readers how to live a life that's more wealthy, productive, and carefree by refusing to let worry get you down."--BOOK JACKET.
