After a while, personal finance books all look the same. Worth It is not even in the same milieu. It changed how I think about my money, my future, and my life. (Emma Johnson, personal finance journalist and founder, WealthySingleMommy)
The reasons people mishandle money are far more deeply rooted than an absence of information, and many self-help books make things worse with intimidating how-to lists that don't address the real source of the problem. Salvation has finally arrived thanks to Amanda Steinberg, the founder of DailyWorth, who bridges the gap between technical know-how and emotional resistance with her brilliant new book, Worth It. Combining savvy nuts-and-bolts instruction with psychological insight smart enough to help even the most recalcitrant, Worth It is written in a warm, user-friendly tone that feels like your best girlfriend reassuring you instead of a scary math teacher yelling at you to do your homework, Money is power, and nobody can achieve real freedom without financial autonomy. Worth It shows the way for anyone to achieve the ultimate goal: Free At Last.

For all the finance books I've read, I've never felt so gotten as to my inner world around money and relationships. It's like dawn coming into deep unconscious, ancient patterns in my mind.

(KC Baker, Founder Woman Speak/Girl Speak, Women's thought leadership coach and speechwriter.)

Now founder and CEO Amanda Steinberg has written her first book, Worth It, Your Life, Your Money, Your Terms, in the same spirit of #womenhelpingwomen to succeed in finance and in life. This is not just another "how to budget and save" book that tells you to cut coupons and lattes to make ends meet. Amanda dives deep into the underlying issues that cause women to question their own worth and the way they have interacted with money their entire lives. The exercises in Chapter 2 alone go further than most money books ever do to help women gaze into their psyches to see the root causes of the actions that are so hard for most of us to change through willpower alone. And the best part is, that the information, stories, and advice aren't coming to us from some dude in a suit or an heiress who has always had family money to fall back on. Amanda has been through the ringer herself and she openly shares intimate stories about her own family, history, and all of the money mistakes she made along the way; a lot of them made in the name of trying to look like the successful women so often portrayed by the media. Worth It is the get real financial book of our age.
This is the book I want my daughters to read so we can talk about what they have learned about money and worth from me. No one ever sat me down and really taught me anything more about money that how to balance my checkbook when I got my first checking account. No one ever explained WHY it was important to balance it, or what to do if I ran out of money. I got my first credit card the first day I stepped onto campus at college and no one ever warned me about running up a balance I couldn't pay off. Which I promptly did. I want to be much more conscious and careful about what I teach my own girls.
So when I heard Amanda's interview with Christine Hassler, I saw the value in splitting my debt repayment between debt and creating an emergency fund. This was inspiring to me. I started playing with numbers and there was no fear, only excitement!
Then I got this book and couldn't put it down. I now I have clear money goals. What used to just be an income goal is now a savings goal, a $0 credit card balance goal, and a retirement fund goal. Very exciting. I can't thank Amanda enough for helping me to see how fun saving truly is, and making it the #1 priority in my financial life.
Amanda Steinberg explains WHY it is that women are so generally dis-empowered around money ("that’s HIS job, not mine"), equate spending money on personal value ("that designer bathing suit will go great with my dream partner who I haven’t met yet"), and are considerably worse off than men when it comes to retirement. And then she goes on to explain HOW to change that.
I know a lot about money — I own my own small business, carry no debt, and have some savings and investments — but I still feel clueless and stuck around it all at times. Worth It cleared up for me quite a few “inner game” issues (my mindsets and beliefs about money) as well as “outer game” issues (like what to invest in, and defining terms like “asset,” “capital,” and “risk tolerance”).
I loved finding out my money type. As a coach, mom, and people-pleasure, I’m not surprised that I am a “Nurturer: Putting Others First” money type, like my personality type. And I really appreciated the pitfalls to look out for and the things to put into motion, specifically for my type. So I recommend checking out that section out as you read!
This book is kind, clear, funny, and I feel like I’m having tea with a friend (who happens to be a super genius visionary around money). Five stars. It's a timely, generous, and helpful book that is easy and enjoyable (and empowering!) to read.
