Some say that wealth is power. If that is true, then very few of us have any power at all. Perhaps that old saying should be changed to say, "Those who know how to manage their finances have power." It is true that some people have a gift of financial wisdom but others must be taught. I believe, although Me'Shae Rolling has had many life experiences that have affected her finances, that she has the gift. She also has a servants heart which causes her to share her gift with others.

It would be difficult to navigate the waters of life without credit but let's face it, many of us are just working to pay off our lenders. The more lenders you have borrowed from the more enslaved you have become. Owing money is the new slavery but those chains can be broken.

Me'Shae has written a practicle, no nonsense, book. She suggests taking a calm methodical approach to eliminating your debt instead of the running around, tearing your hair out, helter skelter way of wondering what to do. Sit down, take a breath, read the book and let a cooler head prevail. Your situation will not become cured overnight but that's okay. It took time to get yourself in all the debt so it will take time to get out of.

Here are just some of the Chapters:

Being Disorganzied Costs You Money

Your W2 Form... Is It Accurate?

Mortgage PrePayments

Assess Needs vs. Wants vs. Desires

Time Your Purchases

Credit Reports & Fico Scores

Teaching Our Youth Financial Literacy

If you are truly tired of working everyday just to hand your check over to "The Man" on payday then you need this book. I reccomend this book highly as one who has recently gotten off of the credit train.

Here's the bottom line: If you are serious about spending less, saving more and accumulating wealth, buy, read and follow the recommendations of this book. Brooks-Rolling presents practical advice in an easy-to-read, down-to-earth and entertaining format. You'll see my endorsement on the back cover of the book jacket; that's how much I believe in the principles and practices Brooks-Rolling preaches. It's not a coincidence that much of her content is consistent with the 10 principles of Black Enterprise magazine's Declaration of Financial Empowerment. If you are truly committed to laying the foundation for multigenerational wealth, here's a great place to begin.
