What do you do? Tim Ferriss has trouble answering the question. Depending on when you ask this

PR LEADER Tim Ferriss has published a new book with the enviable promise:

The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich

Ferris_book   What do you do? Tim Ferriss has trouble answering the question. Depending on when you ask this
controversial Princeton University guest lecturer, he might answer:

“I race motorcycles in Europe.”
“I ski in the Andes.”
“I scuba dive in Panama.”
“I dance tango in Buenos Aires.”

He has spent more than five years learning the secrets of the New Rich, a fast-growing subculture who has abandoned the “deferred-life plan” and instead mastered the new currencies—time and mobility—to create luxury lifestyles in the here and now.

Whether you are an overworked employee or an entrepreneur trapped in your own business, this book is the compass for a new and revolutionary world. Join Tim Ferriss as he teaches you:

• How to outsource your life to overseas virtual assistants for $5 per hour and do whatever you want

• How blue-chip escape artists travel the world without quitting their jobs

• How to eliminate 50% of your work in 48 hours using the principles of a forgotten Italian economist

• How to trade a long-haul career for short work bursts and freuent "mini-retirements"

• What the crucial difference is between absolute and relative income

• How to train your boss to value performance over presence, or kill your job (or company) if it’s   beyond repair

• What automated cash-flow “muses” are and how to create one in 2 to 4 weeks

• How to cultivate selective ignorance—and create time—with a low-information diet

• What the management secrets of Remote Control CEOs are

• How to get free housing worldwide and airfare at 50–80% off

• How to fill the void and create a meaningful life after removing work and the office

You can have it all—really.

Widows Wear Stilettos...What Now?

It is my genuine delight to announce the release of my first CD, entitled, "Widows Wear Stilettos...What Now?" 

The CD is a spoken-word self-help CD, designed to help those who have been touched by widowhood and who need emotional and practical direction, as well as support and encouragement during the very difficult first weeks and months after the loss of their spouse.  It also addresses those who have widowed for a longer period of time, but may feel "stuck" in their grief and need help in moving forward. 

The CD is designed in conjunction with my books, "Widows Wear Stilettos: A Practical and Emotional Guide for the Young Widow" and "Widows Wear Stilettos: The Answer Book".  At this time, the CD is available exclusively through the website ( and more information is available at the website.  Please do not hesitate to share with your synagogue, your church and any other organizations to which you may belong - and of course, anyone you know who may be dealing with the issues and challenges of widowhood. 

There are literally millions of women out there who are in need of this information, but even more importantly, these same women also need to know that they are not alone and that there is help and support available. 

A special thanks to all of you who have helped me see this project to fruition and very special thank you's need to go to: My amazing agent, Dr. Syd Harriet and Agents Ink (who continue to work overtime on my behalf AND have to put up with me!); absolutely everyone at and associated with Janal Communications and PR LEADS (who have helped us get fantastic press and media exposure and bless you Dan Janal for always being so supportive and quick with your help!), the fabulous Joelle Delbourgo and Molly Lyons for their wisdom and their recommend to Janal Communications and PR LEADS; all of the wonderful reporters, journalists, editors and other members of the media with whom I've had the privilege of working and who have been so instrumental in helping us reach those in need; my incredible media specialists; and the creative genius behind the best production company on the planet, Penguins 51, my all-around lifesaver, Karen Ronne Tupek (who works tirelessly at the dot-com end of Widows Wear Stilettos and has given up sleeping to do so). 

Cheers to everyone!
