DIVDownsizing has become an unfortunate reality of corporate America. The media have done countless stories on it, and business people shudder at the sheer mention of the word. But as coauthor Hope Stanley Quinn found out first-hand, nobody had written a guide on what to do if you suddenly find yourself downsized. After Quinn's family fought through the financial uncertainty and emotionally troubling circumstances of being downsized, she decided to collaborate with veteran author Lyn Miller-Lachmann to write this first-of-its-kind book, Downsized But Not Defeated. This step-by-step guide is specifically written for any family that suddenly finds its income has taken a dramatic hit -- whether due to downsizing, a lay-off, a divorce, a death in the family, or a disability. The book begins with an up-close look at the grieving process and other psychological implications of being downsized. It then walks readers through an in-depth assessment of their financial situation and helps them design a budget they can stick to. Then, the guide focuses on dozens of creative and effective strategies for families who need to manage their spending carefully. This detailed guide will serve as a must-have resource for any of the hundreds of thousands of families every year that are forced to confront a dramatic loss of income in today's corporate environment of perpetual downsizing./div
