A Letter from Sarah Hiner

It seems like only yesterday, but it was more than 40 years ago when my father, Marty Edelston, started a business in our basement with $5,000 and a dream.

At the time, he was 42 years old and had many questions about life—how to be more effective at work…how to manage money…how to save for his three children’s college educations…which foods were healthy and which weren’t. Sound familiar?

The issues confronting most Americans now are the same ones they faced back then, only the ways we do things and the technology we use to do them somehow just keep getting more complicated

The problem then was that the information available in the popular media didn’t answer any of these questions. In the rare instances when an article did provide answers, it did so in such a long-winded, confusing way that you had to read it over and over to finally understand what was being said.

Well, Dad didn’t have time to wade through volumes of publications in search of the answers to his questions. He needed the information accurately…concisely…and clearly written. And he needed it fast. And so, Boardroom Inc. and Bottom Line Publications were born.

Now owned and published by Belvoir Media Group, Bottom Line Personal and Bottom Line Health help hundreds of thousands of readers with action-focused advice directly from the top experts on the hot topics of investment advice…raising children…buying and selling a home…avoiding illness…building careers…retirement planning…taxes…and much, much more.

We’ve shipped more than a quarter-of-a-million books, such as The Bottom Line Year Book, Health Breakthroughs, and The Ultimate Women’s Guide to Beating Disease. 

Thank you for visiting Bottom Line’s website!

Be Well,

Sarah Hiner
