Format: Paperback
[Disclaimer: The author gave me a free copy of this book to review.]

There is so much more in this book than just your basic personal finance info. It's a comprehensive manual that addresses all stages of your life, written in a conversational, down-to-earth style. The author rapid-fires questions at you and delivers plenty of tough love, for example "There's no trying to create wealthy habits. You're either doing it or not doing it."

A constant theme is that you need to get in touch with your own "financial blueprint" which Ms. Washington describes as the collection of your beliefs, ideals, thoughts, and actions about money. However, she does not allow you to wallow in your financial past; instead she aims to teach you how to change your inner dialog and behavioral patterns to move your life in a positive direction.

The book covers a wide range of topics for all life stages, from opening a bank account to financing your children's education. Topics that you wouldn't expect to find in a personal finance book include how to avoid workplace drama, develop your personal brand, and invest in your professional development without spending a fortune.

The author offers glimpses into her own personal experiences, both positive and negative, and shares anecdotes from the many women clients she has counseled and coached. This helps bring the advice to life for the reader.

The text is a bit dense but is broken up with crisp sound bites of "real talk," affirmations, and savings tips.

There's something for nearly every woman to learn in this cradle-to-grave personal finance bible!

Let me first start by saying this book is a HUGE reality check (in a good way). As a grown woman you'd like to think you know all there is to managing your money but this book puts it all into perspective in the most caring and "keep it real" kind of way that only Patrice can deliver.

This book isn't your boring, outdated, textbook, wealth and money management books. This is REAL life questions that we as woman may to be embarrassed to ask because we think we should know (or can't believe we are going through what we are going through). Reading "Real Money Answers for Every Woman: How to Win the Money Game With or Without a Man" made me feel like I was sitting one on one with a trusted advisor who just happened to be one of my best friends (with my best interest at heart). I can't tell you how many "Ah-HA" moments I had.

One of the major parts of the book that was extremely helpful for me was the part about enabling your friends and family when it comes to money. As women we feel we have a duty to take care of others and that is something I struggle with. This section of the book gave me clear and concise answers to how to tackle this aspect of my life as it relates to my family an money. I can't tell you how valuable this is to me!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for writing this book. It has everything a women needs to be financially fit for years to come.
I recommend this to any women wanting to get to the root of their money issues, concerns and questions. Would give it 10 stars if I could.

By combining financial literacy strategies targeted for women with an entrepreneurial spirit of successful business outcomes, Real Money Real Answers for Every Woman: How to Win the Money Game With or Without a Man by Patrice C. Washington creates a special synergy between the professional woman's financial, business and career goals. Washington's book effectively helps the career woman, or entrepreneur, cut through financial pitfalls to save what she should, earn what she should and live how she should as a married, divorced or single woman.
Washington combines everything needed to uncover new investment ideas, cross-cutting financial plans and small business tactics exclusively for readers who are serious about getting out of debt, obtaining the career of their dreams and/or leaving a legacy for their family. Washington helps us to understand our portfolios and how to add meaningful context to our financial strategies. With Washington's insights, readers will find a new perspective on financial literacy, gain and investments. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and strongly suggest anyone (man or woman) to read it as well if they're ready to get ahead financially and live a better life. -Dr. L.A. Matthews

I first met Patrice (virtually) a little over a year ago when she appeared on a radio show that I co-hosted, Cocktails and Conversation. She joined us to chat about money matters for women and got me to really think about some financial mistakes I'd made and "covered" up with some pretty dumb (yeah dumb) excuses. The really cool thing was she didn't make me feel dumb at all because the advise she gave was extremely practical and is explained in greater detail in this book.

Nobody really wants to read a financial book especially if you are being careless with your money. Patrice's straight no chaser advice with a splash of comedy makes you want to delve into each chapter so you too can Win at the Money Game. Don't we all want to win at that game? And ladies it's so doable on our own. Do you know that females are leaders when it comes to managing successful home based businesses? Many becoming millionaires! I think it's time we all get this money thing together and Real Money Answers is the perfect start for reaching your financial goals.

Even if you weren't taught about money as a child, as many of us are not it's never to late. I say that especially to my single moms like me that are trying to figure out how everything is going to get done. As Patrice says, "everything can be budgeted for". This part really struck me because I'm always making excuses for why I don't have enough for this or for that because this or that emergency came up when I knew all along it was going to happen. That small piece of advice I gained from reading the book has helped me refocus and think how I can make changes for future financial success. So thanks to Patrice I made a major decision to downsize for a little while so that life's little (well-known) emergencies can be handled and I can still pay the bills!

Get this book today and get ready for Patrice's wisdom and wit helping you on your way to financial success.
