We oftentimes depend on physicians to be miracle workers, handing out prescriptions for whatever ails us. But what if we could find a "physician” to remedy other parts of our life? Meet Nora D'Ecclesis. While she is not a "physician” by any means, she certainly has a proven formula for successful, "healthy” personal planning in her new release, The Retro Budget Prescription: Skillful Personal Planning (Renaissance Presentations).

The preface of the book is simple: successful budgeting can lead to a more peaceful and less stressful life. Powerful and unique, The Retro Budget Prescription explores creating a written budget, adopting the discipline to keep on task, and incorporating a spiritual plan which focusses on helping others and tithing.

"My parents immigrated to America for a better life,” says D'Ecclesis. "They taught me to maintain and honor my commitments as I watched their volunteer efforts for the American Red Cross. Good parenting builds character, fiscal responsibility, morality and better quality of life for future generations.”

Meet Amazon bestselling author Nora D'Ecclesis, who has lead scores of Americans to financial independence through better choices based on techniques she shares in her books, as well as her speaking engagements. Also an entrepreneur, D'Ecclesis owns Tranquil Seas Retreats where she holds events which focus on wellness and stress reduction techniques. Her new ebook release, The Retro Budget Prescription: Skillful Personal Planning, went to #1 on the Amazon Bestseller list in the category of finance and hot new releases. It has remained in the top ten since publication. D'Ecclesis believes in supporting her community and supports Wounded Warrior Project, Kirkridge Retreat Center, Homeless Solutions, Inc, The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International and Columcille, Inc.”
