Lifestyle Lifters

Those of you who follow this blog know that my post on Saturday is dedicated to sharing some of the many lifestyle topics that are of interest to Women of Wealth.

To keep it simple (I know you are all anxious to get started on your weekend!), I've put these into a few categories, and provided a brief comment and a few links for follow-up/further info.

Technology - Many of you are Women of Wealth who are also executives, elite professionals, business owners, and may also have parenting responsibilities or caring for an elderly parent. One of the traditional sanctuaries for you has been the enjoyment of a good book, traditionally obtained in hard or soft copy at your local book store, or local library. We have a great book store in our town that has some unique offerings, including one by Philanthropist Daisy Soros that I have posted in the Recommended Reading section of this blog. For those of you unable to take time to source quality reading material in this traditional way, I suggest you take a close look at e-readers that are becoming increasingly popular and more affordable. These devices allow you to download a growing number of book titles, and magazines, and many now offer text-to-speech conversion allowing an audio book to be part of the package. Of course, content is key, and one of the most innovative companies I have found for delivering this is Zinio. In addition to offering mainstream mags like Business Week, Vogue, W, etc, in digital format, they also have launched their own Lifestyle mag, Vivmag, that has some unique features not found in other "analogue-to-digital" print publications.

Next Saturday, we will explore another lifestyle topic of interest. Until next post, continue to believe, achieve, recieve. SDG - JBHIV
