Where to buy it


Raised in a three-room shack with no running water in rural Manitoba, Rosemarie Francis was under pressure from her alcoholic, abusive father to aim for a job at the local chicken-packing plant. Instead, she put herself through college at night, bought her first house at 18, earned her CPA designation at 21, and rose through the corporate ranks to create a life of magnificent wealth and accomplishment.

In The Better Life Book, Francis shares the secrets behind her remarkable achievements. Whatever your goals, Francis argues that your ability to reach them rests on getting the basics right. With its plain-spoken warmth and sincerity, the book is a down-to-earth, common-sense approach to self-development that anyone can follow to create a better life for themselves.
