4.0 out of 5 stars Great advice for Today's Economic Climate, January 27, 2014
This review is from: The Economy of You: Discover Your Inner Entrepreneur and Recession-Proof Your Life (Hardcover)
I just handed off my first Kim Palmer book "Generation Earn" to my recently graduated sister and now I'm happy to have this new book on my shelf. As someone who really took to heart her message of responsible and frugal financial management for young professionals, I find this specific look at entrepreneurship very enlightening. She mentioned before the benefit of diversifying your income with side-projects and now she really tells you how to get that going.

The Economy of You is smart. It encourages authentic careers that stem from what you love most. She even includes a Top 50 Master List to get your imagination going. The book is organized in chapters that share stories of how other people maintain gratifying side-gig, and the "Top Takeaways" for you, the reader. An example that really hit home for me is the issue of time management, and deciding how to balance job, family, and a new side-gig. Since Palmer is a financial expert, she tells you how to make the money work so you can gain financial freedom.

All in all... Palmer is your go-to-girl for tips on living in today's economic climate. If you were to supplement her fresh ideas with a basic financial planning book like Buy Low, Sell High, Collect Early and Pay Late: The Manager's Guide to Financial Survival you'll have a great understanding of down-to-earth money management.
