Alisio Viejo, Calif. (PRWEB) April 24, 2007
Author and mother of two pre-schoolers, Lisa Horuczi Markus redefines wealth for women and offers a simple path to abundance in her new book, "Living A Blessed Life: Walking in Faith, Growing in Wealth." (http://www.blessedlife.biz) (July 2007 release, ISBN: 978-0-9790782-0)
"Believe it or not, even in this day and age, the number one response of girls and women alike when asked how you will take care of yourself financially is -- 'marry a rich man'," says Markus.
Research shows that most women are far from rich:
•Women earn 25% less than men.
•Women lose roughly $650,000 in earnings, missed promotions, raises, and benefits as a result of care giving to children and aging parents.
•Women receive a retirement payout that is 56% less than a man the same age.
•Nearly 80% of women are dependent on Social Security for their golden years.
•Women experience a 45% decrease in their standard of living one year after a divorce.
•Women make up 70% of those in poverty--25% go broke after their spouse dies.
Living a Blessed Life: Walking in Faith, Growing in Wealth (http://www.blessedlife.biz) is a faith-based manifesto that radically redefines what wealth is and how women can achieve it. The author believes wealth is the external manifestation of our spirit. Self-worth influences net worth. Most often, what stands in the way of creating abundance is our belief system. By strengthening our connection to God, we improve our spiritual, emotional, mental, physical, and fiscal conditions.
