Who Are the Joneses Anyway?: Stop Living Someone Else's Life and Start Becoming who You are Meant to Be by Bob Karcher, Susan Karcher

At one time or another, most of us have heard the expression “keeping up with the Joneses”, a legendary family that has the world trying to keep up with them. They are mentioned in tweets, movies, newscasts, articles, blogs, books, and more. They are mysterious. They seem to be everywhere, but no one appears to have actually met them. Why is that?

You have likely heard of them too, but have you met the Joneses? We have, and we would like to introduce them to you. We think you’ll be just as surprised as we were by who they are.

Too often we measure success by our accomplishments or the stuff we have accumulated. But life should be about so much more, like discovering who you are, why you are here, and the legacy you create.

Think of the possibilities if you started living your life more intentionally, doing more of the things that matter most-and less of everything else. Could life be less hectic? What if you spent more time doing things today that could lead to a better tomorrow, instead of just trying to survive each day? What if you could live more simply, yet more fully?

In "Who Are the Joneses Anyway?", we lead you on your own “Joneses Journey”, ask you relevant questions and encourage to be brave enough to seek the answers. The practical approach and resources will help you get from where you are to where you really want your life to be as you to think less about your “what” and begin thinking more about your “who.”

About the Author

As two driven, hardworking people, authors Bob and Susan Karcher proved they could be successful by the world’s standards. They built a certain lifestyle, and with that came the expectations to have big enough jobs, titles, and paychecks to keep up the appearance of success. But it nearly broke them, in more ways than one, eventually leading to a significant moment when they realized they were headed in the wrong direction and needed to change. In "Who Are the Joneses Anyway?," Bob and Susan share how they learned the true meaning in life and are now dedicated to living with less, serving others, and creating their own “Living Legacy.” Their lives are no longer defined by what they have but by who they are. They live in the greater Los Angeles area and have four children in their growing, blended family.

Who are the Jonses Anyway? by Susan and Bob Karcher is a wonderful book that offers one to open up and be authentic with themselves. The Karchers use a powerful analogy with a 4 legged stool that should the importance of balance in your life. Asking questions like Who are You?; Why are you here?; What are you Living For?; and What are you going to do about it? Their book is a wonderful, relaxed and enjoyable way to explore where and what things have you placed importance on in your life. Leaving a land of always searching for more and finding peacefulness and tranquility in one's life is truly a gift that is desired. Reading this book allows you to look at your life and where you place the value of the tangible and intangible items. I very much enjoyed reading this book and encourage others to take a drive with the Joneses.
