Most of those who buy books on career development and career change are women. Most of those who participate in electronic job banks are men.The average cost for a formal wedding, averaging almost 200 guests, is now over $17,000. Receptions for remarrying brides cost about one-third as much as those of first-time brides.One in five divorcing couples does not hire a lawyer to handle the divorce.Whether you sell real estate, education, health care, financial services, or packaged goods, this book will help you uncover new areas of opportunity. Once you understand how transitions affect consumer behavior, you will be prepared to meet your best customers at a time when they need you most.
