When I first started reading this book, my thoughts were: "Deep sigh, this is gonna be boring, but I need a new outlook in my blog, so.....stay strong Deneale you can do this!" And so I started reading. 

From the beginning, this "Average Joe" is more than that. "Boneheaded" as he is, causing me to wake my husband as he slept while I was reading in the dim light in my bed. 

"What's so funny?" My husband mumbles.....

"This book I'm reading, the man actually used my word! He said: 'Bonehead!'" I explained.

"What kind of book are you reading? Comedy? I thought you were reading a financial guide, and you were actually gonna learn something?" My husband responded rubbing his eyes.

"It's just the beginning. But yeah, it's 'that' book!" I told him. 

So hubby went back to sleep, and I continued to read. In the meantime, I did tweet jokingly to Michael how I enjoyed his "Boneheaded" comment. By the way, his www.Twitter.com handle is @FreeAverageJoe. When I did so, he explained that he wanted to write just like he speaks, this way, it was easier to comprehend, which honestly it is, and was. 

The ultimate awakening for me, was learning about assets and liabilities. I always thought my home was one, and than I disappointingly learned it wasn't. Unless of course, you manage to make your house worth more than it actually is, which might I add: is hard to do. I always thought my home was worth something, that's why I have multiple of them! Now, here I sit, disappointed with my rental units, which aren't making money anyway. Deep sigh. 

But allow me 'not' to blow the entire book out of the water for you, and continue with my review, because there is so much more to tell. 

Michael Munsey graduated from Southern Illinois from a High School class of one hundred students total, whereas only twenty of them graduated! Later he went to College in Murray, Kentucky and married the woman of his dreams two weeks after graduation! 

Through his book, he engages you in a much needed History lesson, keeping us on our toes, because let's face it: we don't keep these things on the top shelf of our memories as we age, and are no longer in School. Than he explains we need to work hard, but also: work smart. 

Than my favorite: he tells you, if you want to hire a financial planner, than you may not want to read his book any longer. Point taken. My response though? Why would I want to hire anyone? I want my money all to myself! I'm greedy! I'm just sayin'! 

He explains to get your spouse on board, he in fact devoted an entire chapter to it. "I love my wife, but she can wear you out talking." And he wanted to be sure to explain, share and educate his wife without "her eyes glazing over with boredom." And the way Michael introduced what he had been learning to his wife, was first through the book: "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" by Robert Kiyosaki. And with that said, he even managed to get his wife to read said book, and than, she even finished it before he did! 

This book written by Michael Warren Munsey, "An Averages Joe Pursuit for Financial Freedom" has received 4.5 stars out of 5 on www.Amazon.com. Why? Because readers want to know how to be financially stable, and wealthy, and how to make money, and even how to keep it. And reading this book, will not only enlighten you, it will educate you as well. I suggest reading it. Not just because I did, and learned from it, but because we all have, want and need money. And there's no way around having it, needing it, and .... Face it.... We all want to be richer. If you say you don't. You're lying. 

You can get the book at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and even www.FreeAverageJoe.com and again, I suggest that you check this book out. It's easy to comprehend, and you'll even understand when you're done done: what you've learned! So get crackin'! 

By the way, I give his book, five out of five stars, and more if I could, and I will and do recommend it to everyone and anyone, because we all know, need and spend money. Thank you Michael.

Here are my interview questions:  



1.      In your book you mentioned that your High School only had slightly over 100 students and your graduating class was only 20 students.  What was the reason your school had such a small student body?
 

I was raised in a small rural town in Southern Illinois with a population of only 3,000 people.  Many of the school districts in the region where I was raised had consolidated multiple surrounding small-town schools with the exception of our small town. Many residences in our town were afraid that if we consolidated with the other school districts and lost our school, our town would lose its identity; therefore, our town chose not to consolidate our school with the surrounding schools in the area.
 

2.      Please describe the college where you obtained your undergraduate degree. 
 

In May of 1995 I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Murray State University (MSU).  MSU is located in Murray, Kentucky which is located in Western Kentucky. Murray is approximately 1 hour South of Paducah, Kentucky and about 30 minutes West of Kentucky Lake.  Kentucky Lake was created in 1944 when the Tennessee Valley Authority built the Kentucky Dam impounding the Tennessee River.  MSU has about 10,500 students enrolled which 8,500 of those students are undergraduates.  Murray, Kentucky is a typical college town with 17,981 residents.
 

3.      What degrees have you now obtained thus far?

 

In May of 1995, I received a Bachelor of Science from Murray State University.

In May of 2007, I received my Master of Business Administration from Rice University.

 

4.      I was impressed with the History lesson. Myself when I reminisce about History, it shuts people down, and they turn and walk away. Yet I kept reading. How did you do it?
 

While writhing the entire book I tried to relate to all “Average Joes” like myself.  I did not want to get too deep into the history or the evolution of money. Hopefully the readers are reading the book to look for a different opinion on ways to be free from a job and a paycheck and not a history lesson.  In order to convey some of the personal finance struggles we all face, I felt that I had to give just enough background on where we came from in order to show the reader why we cannot perceive money and retirement like our parents and grandparents. 


 

5.      You're the first person that made me actually understand a pension. How long did it take you to understand it?
 

My first experience with a retirement plan was when I hired on with Halliburton Energy Services in 1997.  I was lucky enough to work with several veteran employees that were very patient and explained all the questions I had multiple times until it sank in my thick skull.
 

6.      Learning assets and liabilities through you, blew my mind.  To learn I was wrong all along shocked me, with all the information in your book, how many other people have you "woke up?" Into the "real reality of finances?"
 

I did not realize that the most rewarding aspect of writing this book would be the positive responses from many of the readers that I connect with through the book.  I have had readers that reply “interesting.” These readers are typically financial planners which I do not recommend using in the book.  Several people have responded positively by saying it made them re-evaluate their own personal finances, which is the highest compliment that I could receive.   
 

7.      How difficult is it to work hard, but also work smart? With this, can you still have fun too, and do you?
 

At any point in our career we have to work hard, especially when we are working for money.  With experience and time we should begin to work smarter with a little discipline.  Everyone works hard so hard for their employer that they do not save enough energy to take care of their own personal business, such as personal finances.  How many people do you know that waste multiple hours a week interacting with Social Media or watching reality TV?  When a person decides to find a way to make their money work for them rather going to a “JOB” working for money, they will begin working smart. 
 

Working smart is NOT easy.  We have to be disciplined to work smart.  We can all get tired and frustrated and take the easy way out by making excuses.  I believe we should dedicate a portion of our “free time” to taking care of our own business.  Who is going to look after our own personal business better than ourselves?  
 

I understand finding time to increase your financial knowledge is difficult, especially after working 60 to 70 hours a week not to mention the honey dos and spending time with our family.  We all need down time from life or we will get burned out.  I recommend setting goals for increasing your financial knowledge that you can fit in your “free time” just as we set monthly financial budgets.  The goals can consist of reading one book a month geared at increasing your financial knowledge or attending a financial seminar.
 

Yes, I have fun spending time with my family, watching movies or practicing basketball 6 nights a week.  With time and experience and success you will become more independent from a paycheck and you will have more time to relax and more time to focus on ways to make your money work for you.
 

8.      You said it's up to each individual, their drive, their ambition; that will help them with their opportunity, to strive to succeed. This may not make sense to you, but it does to me. What about those people that don't care about themselves, or care to try? And those of us whom keep trying to force them to become something they’re not? Am I making sense? People trying to force change on people. Yes, we want to become and be better, but it's also natural to want what's best for your/our Children. So you try to help. Or maybe even another family member you've taken in! And no matter what we do, they fail. You teach, educate, you name it. So still, as we are trying to help them, what you're saying is they that we are trying to help: they don't want it. Right? So are those that are trying to help, also the failure?
 

In my opinion, drive and ambition are inherent.  I do not believe that ambition is a learned trait.  Human nature will gravitate to the aspects of life that make us happy.  We all work for one reason and that is to provide for the wants and needs that each one of us have; therefore, each one of us will rise to the standard of living of which we are comfortable and content.  That is not to discount that we have different struggles, some we control and others which are out of our control.  We all have to reap the consequences of the decisions we make for ourselves and work through the aspects that we cannot control.
 

I did not realize that the hardest job I would ever face was being a parent.  At times as a parent or family member we can be blinded by the love we have for our family.  We have to remember that we cannot help those that do not want to help themselves.  As a parent, I try to go out of my way to help my boys when they are willing to help themselves, but as soon as they take my help for granted I let them work through the consequences.    
    

9.      Financial investments: half the investments my husband’s work offers we don't even know, is there a way to change them?
 

I do not know the details behind the benefits of your husband’s retirement plan.  I recommend that you contact his company’s Human Resources Department and they should be able to answer any questions that you have.  If they cannot answer all your questions, they should give be able to give you a contact for the financial planner responsible for the account.

 

10.  Who would want to hire a financial planner anyway, that's spending money that could be used elsewhere! So yes, reading your book is a must do! Hiring someone to spend our hard earned money? No. I guess I'm cheap huh?
 

I would not say that you are cheap.  I would say that you are smart and confident in your ability of learning a way to make your money work for you.  Most people that use financial planners are too busy to take care of their own business or they are simply scared of the possibility of failure.  
 

By working to learn, checking to make sure you have ample cash flow through your due diligence or evaluation of your investments and finally acting on your knowledge you will be successful.  The only failures in investing are mistakes that we do not learn from.  I have made plenty of boneheaded mistakes myself, but I try to learn something from all of them.
 

11.  Getting spouses on board? I can't even teach my husband to learn the Internet! He says the Internet is the Devil's tool! He's kind of old fashioned. But I'm actually reading your book aloud to him and he's learning, but how do I teach him computers and the Internet stuff? When I told him about assets and liabilities he rally started pouting. So how do you really get him on board with everything? Some of it seems to go over his head....
 

We all have to find the niche that works for us.  There are many ways to get from point A to point B.  We all live in different regions that have different needs. We also have different interests.  As we learn, we will gravitate to the things that interest us the most.  The internet may be a good avenue for you to pursue, but most likely will not work for your husband. 

When I say get your spouse on board, I mean you both should be engaged in the learning aspect, spending aspect and you both should be working towards the same goals.  You should both enjoy a reasonable reward as you accomplish your goals.  The fact that you and your husband both took an interest in my book is the first step.  I challenge you both to sit down and make reasonable goals on increasing your financial knowledge and create a goal for controlling your spending if you do not have any in place.  As you both learn, you will be surprised the ideas that you both will start discussing. 
 

12.  The book "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" by Robert Kiyosaki, should people read it to go along with your book? Meaning, do they need to read it too?
 

Increasing our financial knowledge is critical in being successful at finding ways to make our money work for us.  It is something that we need to work on continuously.  Increasing our financial knowledge and acting on what we learn is the way we take care of our own business.

You will find that the concepts in my book are very similar if not the same as Robert Kiyosaki’s financial concepts because it was his book, Rich Dad Poor Dad, that changed my perception of money.

13.  My husband and I left our hometown of Akron, Ohio to move to Mims, Florida for. Job. Yes, we relocated for a job, uprooted the entire family. Do we regret it? Sometimes. Do you ever regret your choices in life and moves?
 

The only thing that we hate or regret is the lack of quality time that we have available to spend with our family and friends.  I do not regret my choices, I love my career.  I was lucky enough to find an industry that I excelled in and found a little success.  I provide a better standard of living for my family than what I would be able to achieve if I had not moved away.  There are many aspects of home that I miss, but providing a living for my wife and boys outweighs them all. 
 

14.  Work for experience not for a paycheck. What was your longest job and what experiences have you learned? And how have those experiences benefitted you?

 

I worked for Halliburton Energy Services for a total of 9 years which is the company that I worked the longest.  The good people at Halliburton taught me the most and without the training and on the job experience at Halliburton, I would not have been able to achieve the accomplishments I have been able to achieve so far in my career. 

 

Halliburton’s training program did a good job of walking us up the ladder of experience one step at a time.  Every 1.5 to 2.0 years they exposed us to a different aspect of the business.  I am now at my third company since leaving Halliburton.  The second company I worked 5 years, the third I worked 3 years and I am currently employed at my fourth company. 

 

Each time I moved companies it was for a new experience which would teach me more about the industry.  These experiences made me more valuable to my employer.  I recommend learning as much as you can at any position that you currently hold.  When your learning curve flattens and you become comfortable in your current job, search for a job that will challenge you and make you more valuable to your employer.  

 

15.  Have you learned anything negative while writing and researching your book that impacted you?

 

My experience in writing this book has been positive and very rewarding.  The only negative aspect so far in the venture is the amount of time it takes to launch the book and getting the book to move in a positive direction.  The book has only been out for 3 months; therefore, it is still very early.  I am very action oriented and launching a book takes patience and persistence.

"The River of No Return" by Chelsea Hoffman

The River of No Return
on the trail of Jim DiMaggio & Hannah Anderson 

By Chelsea Hoffman 

Date of re~release by Crime Scene Media 11/15/2013


 James Lee DiMaggio purchased this beautiful 235,000.00 cabin in 2009. And as you can see, what a beautiful home it is, or should I say: was. Jim was a telecommunications technician with the Scripps Research Institute in San Diego. 

On August 4, 2013 the most horrific event took place on the Boulevard in California. The San Diego County Sheriffs Fire Department were alerted to a fire by a telephone call, by someone whom lived in the area. 2071 Ross Ave a two story cabin home, a place that someone once called home and once felt safe in.....

One Kyle Custeay and Captain Gesell discover a female body in the garage under a green tarp. The arson call, immediately becomes a homicide investigation. After finding the dead woman, a bloody crowbar is found. The Police keep this information on the down low, for a while. Hoping it will help with leads. After finding the crowbar, they find a dead slain dog, covered with a sleeping bag. But this still isn't the worst part. A child gets found within the home, so burnt, so distraught in ashes, still smoldering that you can't even tell who it is, let alone what sex the child is. 


Not only that, the top of the Child's skull is missing, someone went through some difficult measures to make sure these bodies were unidentifiable. 

After realizing this was arson and murder, a Mother Christina Anderson is the woman found dead. The body of the little Child, they took DNA from the marrow in hopes from identifying the body. 

On August 6, 2013 an Amber Alert was issued for a teen age girl Hannah Anderson and James Lee DiMaggio who was a close family friend of the woman who laid slain on the garage floor. They first put the alert in residents of California, but eventually across the Nation. The Police were assuming that DiMaggio was the sole executioner of the incidents in question: presumed kidnapping, murder and arson. Let us not forget, the mother was found murdered in the home, and Hannah is missing, and Hannah's brother is still missing too.... Or is he?!


The FBI ends up finding James DiMaggio and.... Killing him. Hannah Anderson is found Alive. The child body: her brother. 

Chelsea dedicated her research in this book to: Christina, Ethan and Jim; which she had to have rewritten because the previous publishers ruined it, and vanished. She dedicated her work to them, in hopes that one day: their truths would be told. 

Why? Because no one honestly never was able to question James DiMaggio were they? They never were able to hear his side of the story....only Hannah. 

These are the questions I publicly ask Chelsea because she wouldn't allow me to email her questions and ask them like I normally do in an interview. So pardon me, because yes, this look unprofessional, but apparently this is the approach I had to take. You work with what you can and when you can, to get what you want! 

And I personally, think this read was worth my dollar donation to Chelsea's blog, because this was a very worth while read. Very intriguing. 

You can learn more about Chelsea Hoffman at: www.ChelseaHoffman.com and you can find her on www.Twitter.com @CHProfiler! 








The above questions you see, are me asking her about the previous editors whom ruined her book, she gives you the details about them in the begining. These publishers seem rude: "Taylor Street Publishing" ....oh and like complete and utter failures.....

Book Review: Nine Seconds by Scott Curtis McElhaney



Bored, at the Doctors office, I decided to open the Kindle app on my phone. I scrolled through my iCloud devise, and downloaded a book by: Scott Curtis McElhaney called "Nine Seconds."

Now mind you, this was a short story, but it was a very deep and eye opening one. And once we managed to get to the part where time froze, and The Lord divulged about a plane; and freezing time, it was than in the back of my head, it made me think about the twin towers. It wasn't until the end of the book, the I was enlightened to that, and the memories of nine eleven just started flooding in. 

But that was only one aspect. The other was how I could see what it would be like to be given the opportunity to fix where someone else failed. How much of a complete honor that would be, especially for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. To me, that would be an honor, and I couldn't do for Him fast enough. But than again, my thoughts would be, would anything I do; ever be good enough? So many thoughts. And than even more: He could hear my thoughts! And than that part was even proved to be true, as he answered a thought as Spencer thought it. My mouth dropped.

I felt like I read this book in nine seconds, myself. I'm not kidding, and yes, I am a quick reader, I won't lie. But I just couldn't put the book down. 

And than, to be .... Ah yes, always with Scott- time traveled back, and than told to paint a home, and not to question it. There must be a reason. Like Spencer, at first I was curious, but knew I would too would be compliant. And than to find the woman was the Aunt to the silver screen woman he was sent to help. 

Francesca Bride, a silver screen movie star, whose autobiography Spencer Rice had read; and dearly loved. Someone he blamed Jesus for not helping. Something Spencer didn't understand. He ached, he felt that he could've helped, he prayed, he wanted answers.

And than: nine seconds before the plane hits the twin towers, Jesus Christ appears to Spencer, as he is confronting a woman he has longed to date, but had never been brave enough to do so. Now Christ comes to Spencer, and answers his prayers, and explains how He feels that out of anyone, even other Angels; Spencer is the one person who can fix one failed attempt even Christ made. 

Will he do it? Should he do it? What is right? What is right and what is wrong? Nine seconds and his life will be over, or he can be "transplanted" somewhere in the 1900 what's?! What should he do? Can he fix Francesca? 

You truly need to read this book. It is utterly amazing. Nine seconds, is a real eye opener, it will make you think your life over, and about things you "Wish you would've" and the "What if" factors. 

Give this book a try. I give it five of five stars! It's utterly amazing! 

Thank you Scott McElhaney for opening our minds and our eyes!

Book Review: Forever by Judy Blume!

Forever: A Novel by Judy Blume

#1 New York Times Best Selling Author!

Deneale K. Williams
Did you know that Judy Blume writes adult books too? That's right she does. And my ultimate favorite was Wifey, when I first read that book....I was like freaked out. But this time, I found a new one on the shelves the other day, and decided to read it. It is called Forever...and I want to share my thoughts of this book, with you! (It is also featured in this blog!)

Firstly, I found this book more along the line of young adult, rather than adult. It would be helpful to those who are new to sex, and true love, or puppy love. I wish I would have found it when I was experiencing this.

Katherine is a virgin, and wants her first time to be perfect, and with someone she really loves. Michael is more experienced, and even has a name for his private parts. He wants to make love to Katherine, but forces himself to respect her wishes. Katherine's grandmother works for Planned Parenthood. That is another thing I found quite informative, and professional.

To encourage getting protection, sticking to your guns, and young love. This book was very good, and eye opening. I must admit, I didn't expect things to go array when Katherine and Michael had to find Summer jobs. But it proves, that there are other fish in the sea for any of us, and that you can love ore than one person, and respectfully do the right thing.

I don't want to blow the story line to you, but I think if you have teen age children, they specifically need to read this book. I will be point blank and honest, I have a fourteen year old daughter, and her best friend became pregnant at this very age. So I gave this book to my daughter, because I wanted her to be aware, your first love, is not always your last love.

I wanted her to see from someone else's eyes, not just mine, and this book, was the perfect way to let her see. And so she read the book, I even quizzed her on it, to make sure she actually did read it, and didn't fake it. She too, liked this book, and also found it informative.

On a scale of one to ten I give this book a nine, because they rate it adult, when it is more along the lines of young adult. I think it needs to be released, and even told to young adults, to read it. It will help them to relate. I liked the book, it was very easy to read, very informative about ways to seek help, which ways to turn, how your friendships will change, and relationships, and how to say no, and mean it.

This is an excellent read, and like I said, if you have teen agers, you need to get this book, and give it to them to read. Now mind you, you may already know Judy Blume, your child should. She has entertained the child, for ages with books like: Superfudge, and Are you there God, It's me Margret, and many many more. She is an avid writer, and now she entertains one and all. She is a very good writer, and very open and honest. I am impressed.

Judy Blume lives in Key West with her husband George Cooper.

Book Review: Wifey: An Adult Novel by Judy Blume!

Wifey
 

An Adult Novel by Judy Blume

 

Over Three Million Copies Sold of This Book!!

If you know me, I am an avid reader. But Judy Blume, believe it or not, is someone I didn't read. As you may have noticed, previously I wrote a review on Judy Blume's book Forever.... within that review, I mentioned her book Wifey. Wifey, was my first read, of Judy Blume's, and since that point, I have been a fan.
Wifey, is claimed to be Judy's first adult novel. And adult, it certainly was. When I found her book in a yard sale, I picked it up because my son told me she wrote the book Fudge, and Superfudge, and that she made him laugh, and he really liked her books. As I read the book, I told my son, this book, was not one of her kid- style books, this book was for adults. And my son proceeded to ask me if I had read anything of hers, to which I told him I did not. He then suggested that I get the book. So I spent a quarter, and decided "How can I go wrong?!"

Later that night, I picked up the book and started reading. I was impressed with her style, she wasn't testing my brain with enormous words, and phrases, and things that I needed to research. The story is of a housewife, and oh how she has a dirty mind! The cover states that, just to entice you, and then it states that over three million copies have sold. As I read, there was no doubt in my mind, it was probably "us" three million housewives, that bought the book! WOW!

Judy Blume helps the modern housewife put thoughts that they don't usually allow into their heads, into print. She is a wonderful writer, easy to understand and relate to. If you are looking for something to peak your sexual desires, and interests, this is the book for you. Her character Sandy, if you are a housewife, sometimes you might even be able to relate to also. When will you have a minute to yourself? Take the kids to School, help the kids with their home work, fix dinner, and then what about "you" time. That is something always far and few between. And it is also something we dare not speak of-our needs and desires.

Ages ago sex, was something you whispered about, and sometimes even spelled when the kids were around, like they couldn't figure out what that small three letter word was! Agreeably, today's age, is quite different and a little less discreet. This book is copyrights for 1978, if that tells you how different times were and are, you will well enough see it in the writing. When I first read this, I was new to the sex, somewhat, and a new wife, and mother. Housewife. Then- I found her book, enticing and intriguing. I have since read the book again, several times to be exact, and each time, I find something new in it, if that's possible. But the book, is still interesting to me. I truly enjoyed it, and yes, it made my insides melt. If you are anything like me, when you read, you can see pictures in your head, this is of course, your imagination. And I see, and felt, and even desired. But that of course, is me.

As you already know, I do not blow details in my reviews, because if I like the book enough to review it, then I think you should get it, and read it too. I have read many of books, and you see how many reviews I have written thus far-even though yes- I am behind. But this book on a scale of one to ten, gets a ten plus-plus! It was wonderful read, and if you are at all like me, when you get bored, and haven't got the money to get something to read, and you desire and good read, you will re-read it again.

Judy Blume is a wonderful writer, and she knows how to please any and all readers. As I have said, she writes book for people of all ages, children, adult-teens, even. She has a nice sized list of books out there to enjoy. And a writer that can please one and all, as she does, deserves your applause, and a chance! She knows what she is doing! Trust me. And if you are a husband reading this, or even a boy friend, if you want to spice up your life with your significant other, I suggest getting this. I read a few chapters aloud to my husband- and it did just the trick I was hoping it would! Sometimes reading to one another, rather then watching a DVD, can be just as warm and wonderful as foreplay, it's just a gentler start. Like me, what have you got to lose?

I give this book five very hot, hot hot stars! Once you pick it up, you will not be able to put it down, I promise you that!


WifeyWifey by Judy Blume
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you know me, I am an avid reader. But Judy Blume, believe it or not, is someone I didn't read. As you may have noticed, previously I wrote a review on Judy Blume's book Forever.... within that review, I mentioned her book Wifey. Wifey, was my first read, of Judy Blume's, and since that point, I have been a fan.

Wifey, is claimed to be Judy's first adult novel. And adult, it certainly was. When I found her book in a yard sale, I picked it up because my son told me she wrote the book Fudge, and Superfudge, and that she made him laugh, and he really liked her books. As I read the book, I told my son, this book, was not one of her kid- style books, this book was for adults. And my son proceeded to ask me if I had read anything of hers, to which I told him I did not. He then suggested that I get the book. So I spent a quarter, and decided "How can I go wrong?!"

Later that night, I picked up the book and started reading. I was impressed with her style, she wasn't testing my brain with enormous words, and phrases, and things that I needed to research.
