From war-torn Sierra Leone to the US, to dancing for the Dutch National Ballet, this is a heartwrenching, life-affirming true story of a young girl orphaned by war and saved by ballet.
Debt-free, a comfortable home, a good life, independence. Those are things we all wish for. Working for a salary isn't likely to get them for us, though, since our wages don't keep up with inflation, much less get us ahead of the curve. The only way to enjoy the life we want is to be able to set our own income and the only way to do that is to operate our own successful business. The Shoestring Manual help you do just that. Instead of a business plan, the Shoestring Manual provides a game plan. Laid out in a simple, easy to understand format, it is a "follow the steps" type of instruction. It begins by guiding you to choose the best business for your skills and talents and ends with a client paying you. All you do is fill in the blanks one at a time to create a small business that works. Think about your life and what you want for yourself, your wife, and your children. If things don't look promising today, what's tomorrow likely to be? One sure thing is that if you keep doing what you're doing, you'll keep getting what you're getting. To change your future, you have to change your present.
Mollie Peace was a woman of her time, one of a generation that saw the most extraordinary changes. Born in poverty, she lived through the hardship of the early twentieth century, and experienced the tragedies of war. She witnessed the birth of the motor car, the atom bomb, the computer and the Internet. A loyal wife and mother, she raised a family and knew the joy of great-grandchildren. To have experienced all this was no ordinary life. But like so many other women of her time, she nurtured a private desire that was always denied her. She wanted to be a writer. That was her real identity and she was a talented poet. But there was no opportunity for her. Until now. This collection is both a tribute to her and an encouragement to everyone who believes in their own purpose and desires. Never give up. Your words will live on.

The first half of this book contains true and graphic accounts of people with mild to very serious foot problems. Drama, humor, and heart run through these stories of real people, just like you, who needed help and had tried many things on their own. Traditional medicine and "thinking outside the box" got these people happy, comfortable, and many times simply out of their wheel-chair walking and dancing again. The second half of this book contains over 101 budget minded solutions, progressing from the simpler, cheaper to the more expensive medical treatments as necessary. Many suggestions are Do-It-Yourself. You will scratch your head and say, "Why didn't I think of that?" Are you an amputee or do you have a bunion? Yourself, a friend, or family member has foot problems what should you do? You will find multiple ideas and possibilities, such as: "What can I use to relieve foot pain that doesn't cost so much?" "How do I know if I really need a custom orthotic?" "Does anyone else have these same problems, or is it just me?" "How do I buy the right shoes in the first place?" "What if part of my foot has been amputated? How can I balance and walk again?" Lynda Elliott Goyzueta is a Certified Pedorthist who has dealt with these questions and found solutions. She has worked in a clinical setting as a practitioner/manager as well as helping the neighbor on the street. When you meet her she will ask you, "What's In Your Shoes?"
