Upon starting this book, my impressions were confirmed. The steps for achieving financial freedom appear to be:
1. Get yourself born to very successful doctor parents.
2. Have your mother write a best-selling book.
3. Go to college on your parents' dime.
4. Use your mother's reputation and connections to start a "network marketing business" (otherwise known as "hit up your family, friends and acquaintances for money business").
5. Live rent-free in an apartment owned by your mother while running up lots of debt.
6. Use that same network (the one built on your mother's connections, while telling people you've ended your professional relationship with your mother) to build a wellness coaching and motivational speaking business telling people how you got out of debt.
Reminds me of a story of a man reading a magazine where he happens upon an ad which promises the secret to riches if you just send in $100 and a self-addressed stamped envelope. So the man sends in his money and his SASE and in a couple weeks the envelope comes back. Inside is a single sheet of paper with the words "Do exactly what I'm doing".
So I was pretty set to hate this book and rip it to shreds. But then a funny thing starts to happen.Read more ›
Unfortunately, Money, A Love Story fell flat to me. It isn't that Northrup gives terrible money advice all the way through. In fact, she gives some really good advice at parts...but it is mostly regurgitated from other books! And even the advice that is more about encouragement and self-help (and less specifically about money) still originates from self-help books she's read and seminars she has attended. She quotes so often from other books that her own book reads like a college essay: yes, there are a lot of ideas in there, but they aren't original to her, and she hasn't added anything unique to the discussion.
I suppose other readers might argue that Northrup shares her personal story, and THAT is what makes this book unique.Read more ›
The author, a child of privilege, shares her own story. It did not resonate with me. It is easy to dance across the tightrope when a net is in place. I didn't care for the smug tone and frankly, she is more connected than gifted or wise. Her suggestions for increasing income including mlms and selling unused designer duds on consignment are insensitive to the 99 percent who don't have any unused duds designer or otherwise and have been victimized by mlm schemes before. On the positive side, it is not a complex book and some of the charts and tools are helpful.
For those who are intrigued with creating their own money love store, I would suggest looking at Financial Alchemy: Twelve Months of Magic and Manifestation (Volume 1) Rae developed the "money honey" concept and seems to do it successfully. For those who are interested in metaphysical approaches, I suggest RealityShifters Guide to High Energy Money orThe Energy of Money: A Spiritual Guide to Financial and Personal Fulfillment or...Read more ›
