I'll be honest: I'm lucky my wife lets me out of the house with a wallet. So, it's no wonder that finances are not my favorite subject.

I was totally thrilled to find a book that could explain to me not only which numbers were important, but how to go beyond that basic knowledge into more specialized systems knowledge to help me grow and expand my business while keeping financial stability in mind.

Her avatar creation system is just plain smart, and worth the meager investment in this book alone. Pick this book up today, read it this week, and marvel at the fact that it will have paid for itself after the first chapter.

Full of resources, pictures, diagrams, and charts that help explain more effectively how to run your business from a sales and money perspective. As an entrepreneur this book was hugely resourceful and helpful for me as I seek to understand the money part of my business. Nicole gives tips, hints, tricks, and even songs that go along with what she teaches. The book is hands on and practical. I learned much that I am going to use in my business and it gave me a better picture of how to better handle the money portion of my business. Nicole teaches in a fun, interactive, and engaging way to help you understand a topic. She takes a topic that is dry and difficult to understand making it something that people want to read and easy to understand. She does this with real life examples and even charts for you to fill in for your own purposes. A great resource and guide to anyone interested in learning more about finances in the business world.

As a former CPA with a major in accounting and minor in economics, I was doubtful that someone could write a fun book about finance. I was wrong! How to Be a Finance Rock Star is an easy to follow, entertaining way to learn about all the not so fun parts of running your own business. The author does a great job of tying the chapter lessons to songs and sprinkles in music trivia along the way while at the same time teaching you the nuts and bolts of how to figure out things like your ROI, pricing, and options for generating financing for your endeavor. This book is a great resource for all entrepreneurs, but especially those who have a great product or service, but may not have any business or finance education or experience.

This book just rocketed to the top of my recommended reading list for creative small business people - I couldn't wait for it to come out, and I wasn't disappointed!

So many of the artists, crafters, writers & performers I talk with are intimidated by the profit side of our business - we don't understand numbers, and are afraid of what they might tell us, so we shut our eyes tightly and ignore them, hoping that we'll just magically turn a profit by accident and sheer force of will. Nicole is out to change that for us, to get us to stop squinting suspiciously at numbers, overcome our anxiety and discover new ways to think about profit, pricing, and business spending habits. With "Finance Rock Star" she's provided tools that do just that, sharing some of her "Number Whispering" secrets.

Full of quirky illustrations, amusing anecdotes and down to earth examples of rock-star profits, the book's tone put me at ease and had me laughing at topics that usually tense me up. I'll be working through a lot of the examples, formulas and ideas over the next few months as I set up a new biz project, and wish I'd had them for previous projects.

I'm proud to call Nicole one of my creative co-horts, and thrilled to have this book as a resource for the small biz folks I work with.

There are "Words" people and there are "Numbers" people, but Fende manages to combine the best of both in her readable path to understanding and handling finances. As a "Words” (and Music) person, I certainly appreciated her creative approach to make what is normally an annoying, but necessary, aspect of business accessible and amusing. Thanks for the backstage pass to finances Nicole, you rock!
