Written in short story format with self-depreciating humor, this memoir chronicles the enterprises both off-beat and mundane of a serial entrepreneur. Her efforts to make money to buy the good things in life start at age five when she sells rocks to the neighbors long before pet rocks became a fad and no one has heard of a new-age rock shop.

The adventures continue from social worker to palm reader to hot air balloon pilot to bag lady with a mink coat selling frozen meat to computer programmer and beyond to retirement at age 68. The stories provide an easy to read "How To..." list of ways the author has tried to make money often with hilarious and unexpected consequences. The list also includes some ways how not to make money. Although she is not a financial consultant and makes not claims to be one, she shares her experience and offers opinions on what to do and not do based on her personal experience.

101 Ways to Make Money is both an inventive memoir and a money-making travelogue of adventures that are funny, insightful and informative. As you follow the trail of the author's money-making life, you'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll wonder – Why didn't I think of that?
