This is the first self-improvement book I’ve read that’s making noticeable changes in my life. The reason it’s effective is because it forces the committed reader to examine her beliefs and attitudes about money with exercises throughout each chapter. (I wrote all over my book, I recommend purchasing it in paperback rather than an electronic copy.)
All of my adult life I have dreamed not so much of money, but Financial Independence, yet that’s all it’s been: A Dream. Wishful thinking missing a Plan of Action, the courage to execute it, and the confidence to value myself and my creative talent.
For the past five years I’ve earned below $12k a year doing jobs that felt “comfortable” and “low key” believing I was better off sticking to work that didn’t challenge or drain my creative energy. I kept telling myself that my husband was the only one who could make “real money” with his IT experience.
I blew through my entire savings just to keep up with practical expenses. My sense of self-worth suffered. I turned a blind eye to my bank account and tuned out my husband whenever he tried to talk about our finances because it was too depressing to face.
Two years ago I decided to pursue my lifelong dream of a career in fiction writing by publishing my first young adult fantasy novel. I was so grateful for the warm response I received from readers and book bloggers that I constantly did giveaways to express my gratitude. I released new titles at a special 99 cent price to “reward” my faithful fans before upping it to the intended price a couple weeks later (after the buzz had died down, along with sales).Read more ›
I decided to look at another book by the same author and found this one. It's not a bad book, but I think it would work better as a companion to her seminar. I still got a few things out of it, but a lot of it felt like rehashing of what I read previously.
Having said that, I think this is an important book for business owners and corporate types to read. So many (male and female alike) are not earning up to their full potential. The question you have to ask yourself is "Why?". The author does an excellent job of taking you through those steps to answering that question.
I have received more reward from this one book than all the others! Of course, all the other books got me to the place where I could hear what Barbara has to say. Love it!
