PREPARING TO FLY: Financial Freedom from Domestic Abuse

Are financial worries keeping you stuck in an abusive or unhealthy relationship? Do you want to break free but don’t know how to make it work financially? Take charge with Preparing to Fly, a personal finance book for women who want to escape the relationships that are holding them back.

Drawing on personal experiences and nearly a decade of financial expertise, Sarah Hackley walks readers step-by-step through empowering plans and tools: Learn how much money it will take to leave and how much you’ll need to live on your own. Change the way you think about money to promote your independence. Bring control of your life back to where it belongs – with you. Break free and live in your own power, with Preparing to Fly. Additional tips for women with children, married women, pregnant women, the chronically ill, and more!

“As a survivor of spousal abuse, I wish I’d had access to a book like this when I was suffering and fearing how I would ever be able to leave my abuser. Hackley offers victims not only hope that they can escape the cycle of abuse, but also a plan to achieve it. … This book should be in every public library, doctor’s office, counseling center or clinic, and shelter where battered women and families can easily get their hands on it.”
