Project Management, Editorial, Design (cover and interior)

The team at Baker/Revell asked Livingstone to create a money organizer for folks who still use pencil and paper for bill tracking. The result is a unique month-by-month pocket planner designed to help people keep their personal finances on track—with places to write expenses, pockets to hold bills, and a chart to check off bill payments. Further interactive articles discuss saving, tithing, reducing debt, etc. Livingstone managed the layout of this book, hired writers for and edited the topical articles (one per month), and built an introductory section to help people plan bill paying and track their money.
