The Money Queen&rsquo;s Guide is a book written for the woman who has it all, but often struggles with the ability to balance her success with her future needs and goals. The Money Queen&rsquo;s Guide will help readers to plan out their financial lives and plan for growth and success, while avoiding the pitfalls that can derail financial security along the way.</p> </blockquote> <h4>New Parenting Chat Tuesdays at 11am PST</h4> <p>Our sister blog <a href="http://parentingsquad.com/">Parenting Squad</a> (<a href="https://twitter.com/parentingsquad">@ParentingSquad</a>) will be hosting a parenting chat every Tuesday at <strong>11:00 am Pacific</strong>.

Donna is a personal finance writer, author of the new &ldquo;<a href="https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0997821604/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=9325&amp;creativeASIN=0997821604&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=surviandthr07-20&amp;linkId=fba0b101f9a5f0bf15343b28db738f3e">Your Playbook For Tough Times: Living Large On Small Change, For The Short Term Or The Long Haul</a>,&rdquo; and a longtime friend of (and occasional guest-poster on) Wise Bread.</p> <h4>More About &ldquo;Your Playbook For Tough Times&rdquo;</h4> <p>Here&rsquo;s a message from Donna Freedman:</p> <blockquote> <p>On Thursday we&rsquo;ll be talking about the concept of a &ldquo;financial fire drill.&rdquo; This is like an extreme budget makeover: You figure out how little you could get away with spending in a typical month, without jeopardizing health or safety or turning into a deadbeat.<br /> The idea isn&rsquo;t that you&rsquo;ll give up all good things forever! It&rsquo;s more of a safety measure: In case you or your spouse/partner got laid off or couldn&rsquo;t work for a while, you&rsquo;d know how much you need to get by.</p> <p>There&rsquo;s more to it than that, of course &ndash; and I&rsquo;ll be on hand to share more!</p> <p>Relatively few schools or houses burn down each year. But it&rsquo;s still a good idea to know what to do if the fire alarm goes off! That&rsquo;s why we have fire drills &ndash; and it&rsquo;s why our budgets need fire drills, too.</p> </blockquote> <h4>New Parenting Chat Tuesdays at 11am PST</h4> <p>Our sister blog <a href="http://parentingsquad.com/">Parenting Squad</a> (<a href="https://twitter.com/parentingsquad">@ParentingSquad</a>) will be hosting a parenting chat every Tuesday at <strong>11:00 am Pacific</strong>.
