Intelligent, Wise and Packed to the Rafters with Practical Common Sense Advice, June 15, 2016
Anni Grimwade started her professional life as a physiotherapist in Melbourne before becoming a management and productivity consultant in Sydney. After completing her MBA at Monash University in Melbourne and Stern Business School in New York and then moving to Hong Kong, she worked as a general manager for a recruitment company and subsequently as a university lecturer and program leader. During a 5-year stay in Jakarta she undertook freelance editing work, and then returned to Melbourne with a growing family where she was able to resume a range of management consulting assignments. She has an Applied Science degree in Physiotherapy and an MBA in International Business. So, having this kind of educational background and also a mother to three teenage children, I would safely say she is more than qualified to write this book!
Leaving home is a big step, but moving out is easier if you make some preparations before you go. Leaving Home! (U.S.): Practical Stuff to Help You Survive in College and Beyond, provides valuable and important information about the practicalities of leaving home and getting your own place (rent, bills, doing your own washing and cleaning and so on. However, the book covers much more than this.
If you are looking for a no frill, common sense approach to dealing with leaving home, this is an absolute must! I couldn’t fault it in any way. I’d highly recommend this to any person contemplating leaving home, or to any parent wishing they would! This book is intelligent, wise and packed to the rafters with practical common sense advice.
