Format: Paperback
Really informative!!! This book was very helpful. I've always lived paycheck to paycheck. I took on a lot of credit card debt at a young age, but even with that behind me I've never successfully been able to save for a rainy day fund. It seemed like my life was just an ongoing cycle of home and work. Then I saw this book and figured it couldn't hurt to read it. And I was right. It turned my life around. Now I am able to actually save money. I learned that my overspending was due to my flexible and discretionary spending habits. And now my bank account has a bright future. I would recommend this book to anyone who want to make their money work for them.

My 35th birthday was my turning point. I realized I had nothing saved for retirement and no clue where to start. This book helped me to actually learn how to save money every month instead of saving whenever it was convenient (which it never was). I even learned a little about how I should start investing my money. Now I have a Roth IRA that I’m paying into every month and my savings account is for saving money instead of just serving as a secondary checking account when I run out of funds. It feels good to know I’m moving forward and won’t have to work every day for the rest of my life.

I used Power Up as a teaching tool for me and my kids. Growing up my parents never gave me the money talk and I didn't realize how important it was until I reached adulthood and didn't know how to manage my money. Today, I'm drowning in debt and at the same time trying to raise a family. Even though I realize that starting the money talk with my kids is essential, I had no idea where to start or what to say. But with Power Up, recommended by a friend, the money conversation has started in my house. I know exactly what to say, how to say it and how to Power Up my kids as they grow. This is such a powerful tool that I wish I had when I was younger. My debt load would probably be a little lighter than what it is today. But, I'm getting there and I no longer have to worry that my kids will follow my bad money habits.Power Up: Taking Charge of Your Financial Destiny
