This book offers effective strategies to help erase poverty. It advocates self-reliance, policy reform and cultural awareness. Accountability is required from all; the middle class, the trust fund babies and the underprivileged who see themselves as perpetual victims and have fallen into the entitlement trap. True Blue-prints are offered to rescue people from an economical slump and help them improve their life, and re-obtain a sense of self-worth.

A b o u t t h e Au t h o r Calvin Helin was born and raised in the small north coastal Tsimshian village of Lax Kw'alaams (Port Simpson) in British Columbia, Canada. At age twelve, he was sent on a quest by his father and grandmother, both hereditary chiefs, with the single-minded purpose of making a difference. In his late thirties, he was named one of the top forty under-forty entrepreneurs in British Columbia by the news publication Business in Vancouver and granted one of the top forty under-forty national awards sponsored by the Financial Post magazine and other major Canadian corporations. Currently he serves as a senior advisor to com- munities, industry, and governments on a variety of key development issues. Mr. Helin is a lawyer, karate instructor, Aboriginal leader, and business- man. In addition, he leads international trade missions to China and New Zealand.
A b o u t t h e I l l u s t r at o r Bill Helin, the author's cousin and an internationally renowned artist and designer, has long pioneered the development of Northwest Coast art.
