Do you fear losing your job?
If so, you are like a lot of people these days — and you will be interested in “The Economy of You: Discover Your Inner Entrepreneur and Recession-Proof Your Life” by Kimberly Palmer (AMACOM, $21.95). It is the Color of Money Book Club selection for February.
Palmer, senior money editor and consumer blogger at US News & World Report, argues that in a world of zero job security, you need to create a stream of income in addition to your regular 9-to-5 job.
“Relying solely on a single employer is a sure-fire way to end up struggling, as so many Americans do,” Palmer writes.
