A book signing for the definitive guide on thriving on less than two incomes will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, May 12, at Dog Ears Bookstore, 688 Abbott Road, South Buffalo. Author and business performance consultant Cathi Brese Doebler will sign her book, Ditch the Joneses, Discover Your Family: How to thrive on less than two incomes!
Doebler has been quoted in numerous media outlets, including USA Today, Woman’s Day, ABC News, FoxBusiness.com, CNBC, NASDAQ.com, MSN Money and more, and was recently interviewed by AM Buffalo and The Buffalo News. Her message is catching on fast, and with good reason: She’s living the life many only dream of, and she offers help to those who want to take charge of their life and family.
Ditch the Joneses, Discover Your Family provides practical know-how for families searching for balance in how they spend their time and money. Pulling together 15 years of business coaching and training experience, and a decade of parenting, the author shares information that is realistic, focusing on useful tools and ideas for families.
