The 70 US website illustrations, both government and 'ad sponsored,' included in this book gives citizens abroad the opportunity to be empowered to establish something similar where they reside. And USA readers find out how to receive the services and/or products paid for from consumer friendly Federal, State, Local sources via government websites as well as 'ad-sponsored' expert advice websites. Authors Guild member, Cynthia Lynn's financial wellness recipe is empowered to live a better life that starts with not being cheated-she offers the self-help everyone needs to make changes that lead to making possible what once seemed impossible + learn how the managing of income leads to more: financial well being and initiative for changes toward a better life. Her informational travel books are in libraries worldwide (WorldCat.org) + in the permanent collection of the Library of Congress and have received 5* reviews from Library Journal, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The St. Petersburg Times, Midwest Book Review among others.
