Adult-o-Nomics Epic Book Launch


About the Book 

Book Title: Adult-o-Nomics 

Author Name: Tez Brooks 

Genre: Non-fiction (Self-Help) 

Release Date: April 30, 2024 

Launching out and making your way in life can be hard. But it doesn’t have to be. 


One study revealed that over fifty percent of young adults boomeranged home in the first five years. Often, this is caused by underestimating how many curveballs life throws. You may not want to return home, and helicopter parents don’t help as they sympathetically offer to cushion you in the name of “setting you up for success.” But you know there’s nothing more rewarding than making it on your own. 


Mom and Dad couldn’t teach you everything. Your peers can’t offer the wisdom of experience. Even mentors don’t often know what you need guidance for. You need preventive counsel; information obtained before a crisis hits. Well, you found it! Within these pages is experience and know-how collected from famous personalities and others who’ve forged the path ahead of you; from all different ages and walks of life 


This mix of ancient wisdom (adapted from God’s Word) and modern advice from contemporaries will place you ahead of the curve as you increase in know-how and understanding for more effective adulting. 

Adult-o-Nomics is a gift book to yourself or others. It’s a collection of 500 short quotes, scriptures, and suggestions for those leaving home for the first time. Topics cover everything from practical housekeeping, automotive maintenance, and career advice, to romance and spiritual living. 


If consumers in the target market read Adult-o-Nomics, they will: 

·  Discover practical tips for becoming independent. 

·  Handle setbacks and trials with know-how, confidence and courage. 

·  Understand societal norms for more effective life skills. 

·  Learn how to walk closer to God. 


Because the book will: 

·  Inspire readers to step out and take risks.    

·  Encourage young adults to mature and grow a thick skin. 

·  Produce a growing dependence on God rather than others. 

·  Offer peace in the midst of turmoil and stress. 


Book Excerpt 

Tip #42 

Be grateful and rejoice in all things. (See Phil. 4:4) 


Tip #43 

A fresh coat of paint is cheaper than redecorating. But don’t paint the trim after gulping an energy drink. 


Tip #44 

Get electricity and water in your new place turned on the day before you move in. You’ll thank yourself. 


Tip #45 

Lift up and clean the bottom side of the toilet seat weekly. Nuff said. 


Tip #46 

If your circuit breaker keeps tripping, hairdryers and Christmas lights are two of the worst culprits. 


Tip #47 

Never confuse abuse with love. This can be difficult if you’ve already been abused by a loved one. 


Tip #48 

Understand the whole world could end up seeing that seductive selfie you posted—even Grandma and your pastor. 


Tip #49 

Scripture says never let yourself get drunk. Learn your limit. 


Tip #50 

Girls, be firm and clear with a guy when you need him to leave you alone. Dancing around the issue makes him think there’s still hope. 


Tip #51 

Freedom in Christ holds a responsibility. Just because we can do something doesn’t mean we should.
