Almost Done with the Book

end of grief pageHello everyone,

Things sure are busy here at home. The kids are now enjoying their winter break, and I’m busy finishing up the newest edition of “The Smart Mom’s Guide to Healthcare Savings”. My goal is to have this ready in early January, just in time for the tax season. (Hooray!)

The new edition contains the method I created to get back tens of thousands of dollars from my son’s autism therapy expenses. Everything I did is legal and should be accessible to use by most American families. My background in taxation and my years of experience working with my health insurer has helped me create a book that I feel can help anyone with large healthcare costs.

If you are a family looking for ways to reduce expenses, subscribe at the left hand column of this page. I’ll keep you up to date with free materials, webinars and seminars.

If you are a special needs provider, or if you are part of an organization that helps families with their expenses, please contact me at I will have free seminars and webinars that may help your clients become financially empowered.

Thank you, and Happy Holidays!

My research into my son’s sleep issues

sleepHello everyone,

I’m busy as usual, editing the 2015 version of “The Smart Mom’s Guide to Cutting Healthcare Costs”. My hope is that it will be ready by early January 2015, just in time for tax season!

My son has sleep problems, which is a common issue for those with autism and related conditions. After sleeping half the night, my son will wake up and stay up for at least an hour or two, walking around the house, turning lights on, singing, and other activities that wake me up.

So I began to research information on sleep disorders and came upon this very interesting article regarding the sleep patterns of our ancestors.   This historian believes that the way our ancestors slept differed greatly from the way we sleep today.

This article intrigued me, so I purchased the book.  I have read the third chapter and am enjoying it so far. However, it is 400 pages long, so I will skim through the historical portions. I’ll make sure to understand the sections of the book talking about how our ancestors slept and what they did during their waking hours at night.

There may be a few of you who would like to resolve their kid’s (or their own) sleeping problems, and this book may have the answer! I will keep you all updated with my findings.

Have a great day, and sleep tight! :)

Working on the 2015 Edition of The Smart Mom’s Guide

BYB logo 2 Hello everyone!

I’m hard at work getting the research done for the 2015 edition of The Smart Mom’s Guide to Cutting Healthcare Costs.

Do you have a story about how you were able to reduce your medical expenses? Did you use my techniques from my previous book to reduce your costs? I would be interested in interviewing you for a possible spot in the book.

As always, I’m available for a free initial consultation to see how I can help you with reducing healthcare costs.

Thanks for your support.
