Something sparked your interest to break the cover and start to read my book, perhaps you were curious and wanted to educate yourself on the difference between a General Contractor and a Consulting General Contractor. Perhaps you were interested in finding out the financial benefits of doing the project yourself. Maybe you just wanted to see if you could actually do the project yourself. I'm here to guide you through the decision process and/or the ""do it yourself"" process, I even include pictures and created forms for you to use. When you are ready, turn the page and we'll get started. *** If you are curious about the difference between a General Contractor and a Consulting General Contractor, as the General Contractor, I take on the responsibility of coordinating the entire project from start to turnkey. We stay under your budget and within your time schedule and you walk into a finished project at the completion of our contract. As a Consulting GC, you are the general on your project, and I work beside you---you go home with all the glory! As a consultant, I guide you through the process from dream to reality to finished project. That includes helping you find the right architect to design your dream, negotiate with subcontractors on price and product, assist you through city planning and development for permits, inspections, and corrections. I advise you on time schedules to keep your costs down and your project under budget and on schedule, but you are in control. This is your dream to materialize! I don't believe in taking shortcuts. My philosophy is efficiency saves time and money and lots of headaches. I've had the pleasure of enjoying a successful career in construction. I know the frustrations of setbacks and I know the joy of a job well done. If you can use my experience to minimize your frustrations, either as a General Contractor or as a Consultant, then please visit my webpage at Chestnutcandc.com. Let's talk! Thank you!

Why is retirement planning different for women? Women are completely comfortable talking about many "M-word" topics: their marriages, motherhood and their mothers, merlots and martinis, mammograms and menopause. But, bring up money and the conversations often screech to a halt. Ask how prepared a woman is for retirement and she can tell you the exact date when she wants to retire, but not how much money she'll need for a 30-year retirement. In this thought-provoking, but non-traditional, fun approach to planning for a woman's retirement, Marcia Mantell guides women through the key questions they'll need to answer before they will be prepared to retire. In What's the Deal with Retirement Planning for Women?, you'll get realistic perspectives on retirement in the new era, a treasure trove of resources to get started, and practical examples of how other women are dealing with redesigning and reinventing retirement. Ten key questions are discussed and you may be surprised by the answers! While no two women will have the same retirement or financial resources, there are common topics that each woman needs to address. While this book offers financial information, it also focuses on how to start defining your future years, how to use the skills of running your household to manage your retirement, and why doing what you love will continue to be a key activity in retirement. It also provides a critical overview into Social Security, which is often the foundation of income for most women in retirement. This book should help you feel more confident and empowered to own your own retirement and future. It will give you a terrific roadmap for how to plan for the future you deserve and help you to make your retirement the best time of your life!"
