I'll be honest: I'm lucky my wife lets me out of the house with a wallet. So, it's no wonder that finances are not my favorite subject.

I was totally thrilled to find a book that could explain to me not only which numbers were important, but how to go beyond that basic knowledge into more specialized systems knowledge to help me grow and expand my business while keeping financial stability in mind.

Her avatar creation system is just plain smart, and worth the meager investment in this book alone. Pick this book up today, read it this week, and marvel at the fact that it will have paid for itself after the first chapter.

I've known and worked with Nicole for quite a while and I've never met anyone who can explain hard to grasp concepts as well as she can. In this book, she explains the sometimes daunting and complex concepts of finance in a concrete and understandable way. Them, she goes further to show how to apply and use those ideas to better run and manage your business. Oh, and she makes it fun too!

Format: Paperback
Nicole Fende has done a wonderful and amazing job of creating a resource for "the rest of us" - a book about finance that really makes sense! She uses real life examples and easy to understand metaphors so that not only do you understand the THEORY of a concept, but also the real IMPACT of the concept. And she introduces each concept in a way that you can immediately go to your business or personal financial paperwork and find what you need to know.

But that doesn't mean the technical stuff is left out. Formulas are explained in easy to understand terms and then high lighted for quick reference. There are video bonuses accessible via QR code to give you even more information. But she also explains to you the finance terms and how they're used, so if you need to carry on an intelligent conversation with someone about your finances, say, with your accountant, you'll understand what they're saying and be able to express yourself in the same language.

Thank goodness Nicole wrote this resource!

As a writer, I've always been more comfortable with words than numbers, but after reading How to be a Finance Rock Star I understand a heck of a lot more about crunching the numbers for my business.

Author Nicole Fende, aka the Numbers Whisperer, makes financial terms simple and shows you how to tame the financial beast via a series of formulas and charts and copious helpings of down-to-earth advice - and she's funny too! You're sure to laugh out loud a few times when reading this book.

There are relevant illustrations and funny characters (Fluffy the Finance Feline and Max the Math Mutt) to help you understand the concepts. The book also includes plenty of useful resources (some of them available via QR codes) if you want to go even further.

The rock star analogy carries through the book, providing a good base for discussing topics like profit goals, business funding, managing expenses and pricing. Anyone who reads this book is sure to understand more about managing business numbers by the end of the process - I certainly did!
