Format: Paperback
There is so much secrecy around money in our culture. This 6 week course invites participants to examine their earning, giving and saving habits. Good Sense offers concrete suggestions so that one can begin to understand the power of money in life and move toward using money in ways that align with personal goals. Good tools included in workbook around budgets and understanding one's own personal money motivation.

I purchased two books at the time. I received the other book but not this one. I would appreciate it if I get feedback with a status of the purchase and when I will receive the book. I heard that it helped people who used it and I definitely need it to set up my finances in 2012.
