Without getting into too much personal detail, I’m proudly part of Gen Y and wish that I would have known the information that Sophia shares about ten years ago (and even before) when I first entered my twenties. Now that I am on the verge of concluding the first year of my thirties this book helped me to reflect upon what I have learned about money and personal finances over the past decade and realize that there is still more to learn.
This book provides a great introduction, foundation and framework, plus lots of resources for those learning to navigate their personal finances in an uncertain world. It also serves as a reminder, refreshment and check list for those that think they know what they are doing—like me.
That said, the most important and valuable information contained within this book is not the how-to-do or what-to-do but the why-to-do. Sophia challenges readers with deeper questions than just how much money do you want to make and save, but why do you want to build wealth? What type of life do you want to live? What is really important to you?
Sophia is definitely not your father’s financial planner and this is definitely not your father’s financial planning book. If you are looking for something different than the typical “fatherly advice” when it comes to financial planning then this is where to find it.
But this book - and especially the author - offer up well-explained ways for just about anyone to align their money with their values and, best of all, use this new self-awareness to make some big dreams a reality. I was nodding my head a lot while reading, especially this great passage: "Spending money becomes an issue when it's spent mindlessly on things that don't bring us happiness, or when we spend money fruitlessly in an effort to solve problems that are internal."
From mindsets to toolkits to practical tactics, the book is as short and easy a read as it's long on real knowledge and the right dose of unconventional thinking.
