Attorney Lauren P. Raysor, Esq. has announced that she is offering special pricing for those who buy an additional copy of her book "Living the Wealthy Life" at Harlem Book Fair 2011. In an effort to encourage children and young adults to read more, Ms. Raysor is offering 50% off the purchase of a second book.
Ms. Raysor will be one of four authors who will be guest presenters at the event, where she will be joined by the students at The Learning Tree Multi-Cultural Center and their principal, Nicole Bailey. Ms. Raysor has been an active supporter of the school by sponsoring the school's annual science fair and its fundraisers which go to benefit the school's programs and curricula. In addition, she will have her own workshop at the event in which she teaches the "18 Principles of Wealthy Living" needed to achieve success, prosperity and happiness.
In her book, Ms. Raysor says that every person has the ability to transform their current situation into something truly magnificent, regardless of their social or economic background. The transformation starts from within as people learn to take responsibility for their own actions rather than blame others. As an example, Ms. Raysor describes how she rose from poverty to become Assistant Attorney General for the State of New York, Deputy Chief and later Senior Trial Counsel for New York City and before starting her own practice.
"Living The Wealthy Life" is an up-close and personal examination of what it takes to make your life great. Ms. Raysor lists and explains the "18 Principles of Wealthy Living" and reveals what those decisions are, what you need to know when you're making them and how to capitalize on each success to propel yourself closer to greatness.
"By offering the purchase of a second book at half-price, this book will find its way into the hands of children and young adults who may need some guidance on how to stay on the right path in their decision making," Ms. Raysor said. "There are a lot of negative influences out there which will impact their choices. I encourage parents to read this book to their children or have them read this book so they can learn that the right choices will lead to their success later on in life."
