I Remember: Reflections with a Theme


Many of us have given more than a passing thought to writing up our life’s experiences for our busy children, who never had time to listen, or our grandchildren who may someday be interested. But Luda Shuster has done more – she has labored for months to craft 7 connected tales of remembrance and illustrated them with pictures from the family album.  This slim volume captures life’s wisdom in written snapshots to which we can all relate.

Here’s what an early reader, Evelyn Preston of Active Over 50 Magazine had to say:

“Luda Shuster’s packed portraits of her family is proof of poetic prose; emotion, story, background and theme weave through clearly and cleanly to leave the reader edified and satisfied, yet amazed that the big picture of a life is so succinctly and charmingly packaged in her finely drawn memoir, I Remember.”

This collection includes reflections on Luda’s Jewish parents, legal professionals practicing in Stalinist Russia of the 50’s (My Na├»ve Parents), reflections on important childhood relatives, the family and personal impact of Chernobyl (Nature Girl) and my favorite selection dealing with the impact of time on our family connections (The Saturday Visit).

Service for Profit’s publication team assisted in this project, providing editing, page design, and cover design services. I Remember by Luda Shuster is available in paperback and eBook formats on Amazon, Barnes & Nobel and other book re-sellers.

Financial Adulting – Read all about the stuff you SHOULD be doing, and if not, HOW to fix it


We’re happy to congratulate Aaron Rubin on the publication of his first book: Financial Adulting – Take Control of your financial Future. Just released in March, with the help of our Service for Profit Publication Support team, this 200+ page volume is full of useful information for those just starting out on, or well along in their life financial journey.
As a California attorney, Certified Public Accountant, and Certified Financial Planner© Aaron Rubin has seen it all, and many times it's not a pretty picture. Rubin provides practical advice about budgeting and saving, taxes, investments, insurance, and estate planning. He tells you what to avoid, what to focus on, and isn't afraid to call out those who may not be looking out for your best interests.
Rubin also connects with readers through shared experiences. He acknowledges his own shortfalls and tells stories out of his own life (some amusing, and others cringe worthy). We all make mistakes and feel foolish at times, but it's from these mistakes that we can learn and grow.
Adulting can be scary, particularly when it comes to our finances, but with practice (and some decent Chardonnay), you will be amazed how well you can navigate these tricky waters.

Here’s what other readers are saying:
Effective financial wisdom from a true specialist who combines his many years' experience and expertise as a tax professional, CPA, and financial planner to give pragmatic advice to young adults. What a plus that this well-written, solution-oriented "how-to" moves easily all along its wealth-building journey. The perfect gift for graduates. And consider a copy for yourself to find some unique strategies within a worthwhile and entertaining refresher course.
--Evelyn Preston: 25 year investment professional, Author of The Money Ladyand financial columnist for Active Over 50 senior magazine
