Presidential Perks Gone Royal. By Robert Keith Gray
Robert Keith Gray served in various capacities under five presidents, and knew every inch of the White House. Before he died at age 92, I helped him write this book. It expressed his dismay at how much taxpayer money was wasted on presidential luxuries. He explained that the American public unknowingly spent more on the First Family than Great Britain did on their Royals. He also felt that the current system gave the incumbent an almost insurmountable political advantage to win a second term. These eye opening, behind the scenes revelations, and countless others, offer great value to anyone, no matter which political party you favor.
Financial advisors Charles Hamowy, CPA and Christopher Conigliaro, CFP, created a strategy called “Seasons of Advice.” It was enormously effective and popular with their clients, and they wanted to teach it to as many of the 10,000 men and women in their Ameriprise network as possible. This book augmented their national speaking tours and opened even more doors. It is written for industry professionals as well as anyone who wants to work with a financial advisor in the best way possible to both safeguard their funds and grow their wealth.
For more than 30 years she and her crackerjack publicity team successfully garnered top print (newspaper and magazine) and broadcast (TV, radio and Internet) media placements for their clients.
