-- Spring Cleaning Gets Dirty
Did you know that by employing just a few techniques from the ancient school of feng shui, you can be richer, healthier, and downright sexier? Find out how getting the chi flowing throughout your nest can rejuvenate your life so you'll fight less and spend more time in the sack. The Nest editors tell you how to balance your boudoir (think: neutral walls, bare floors, fresh flowers, and circular furniture); create inviting living spaces; and reenergize your bathroom (p. 42).
-- Strike It Rich--With Your Spouse
Inspired by its own married cofounders (Carley Roney, editor in chief, and David Liu, CEO, of The Knot Inc.), The Nest takes a sneak peek into the emerging trend of the modern "mom and pop" shop as well as the trials and triumphs of couples in business together. From the duo who whipped up a recipe for success with Vanilla Bake Shop in Santa Monica, CA, (p. 26), to the twosome that runs separate businesses out of their home (p. 48), to six ultra-adventurous couples who started their dream gig while holding down full-time jobs (p. 88), these young marrieds all took the entrepreneurial plunge--and made out big!
-- Get Out of Debt Hell, Now!
Based on common newlywed debt-traps, The Nest harnesses seven financial evils to help you get in the black. From deciphering the mystery of fixing your credit to what sacrifices you have to make (do you really need over 100 cable channels?), The Nest will help you get to your debt-free deadline--unscathed--and keep you out of financial purgatory with four must-read debt salvation tips.
