Publisher's Summary

The average debt of an American is around $91,000 and takes a lifetime to pay off. Are you sick and tired of your paycheck-to-paycheck lifestyle? And are you looking for ways to pay off your debt, but it seems almost impossible with all your daily and more unexpected expenses? Most of us would answer "yes" to these questions. However, the average amount of debt in America is around 91 THOUSAND dollars. This means most people still fall into the trap of credit card debt, mortgages, and countless other bills. You have probably heard someone say: "You need to go on a budget," but even the word budget brings up the feeling of a strict diet, anxiety, or an overall sense of restrictiveness. But the truth is, most of us have been misled and just haven't budgeted the right way yet. With the right approach to our finances, we can start to regain control over our lives again.

Money problems can ruin your life if you allow it to. But if you know how to approach a budget the right way, you can stop living paycheck-to-paycheck, pay off your debt and start enjoying the wealth you didn't even know you had. Stop if you want to stop playing victim to your money problems and start to enjoy life again, then you should listen to this audiobook today!

did you know budgeting is helpful?

So this book asks three times for a review throughout the book! The first one being 20 minutes in!

That's how much confidence the author has that you will give it a five star review when you finish.

This book will thoroughly detail how budgeting will be helpful to you, but never actually teaches you anything about budgeting besides counting all your spending. if I really wanted to go out on a limb and say this thing taught me anything, it would be to invent challenges of not spending for X days in a row. Wow, that's what I was doing wrong!

It also has an extremely gross bonus chapter at the end, that details how beneficial a side hustle can be( remember the book just emphasize how you can live off your current income, you're just not budgeting properly). And also how a side hustle can make you not have to worry about money. And how a side hustle can earn you so much extra cash you don't have to worry. Without ever actually touching on anything to do with reality.

Nice

Despite the length this has helped me more than a book that would've been at least 1000 pages.

It was OK

The book was OK, I have been looking into money management and financial literacy for over 5 years know and most of it was basic information, I think it would be helpful for a beginner but it wasn’t for me

Practical book

Pretty good practical book, but you must take action if you want to get the most out of it. Don’t just get into it for entertainment purposes. At least that’s what I think

Not that much new info, still a good read

Really enjoyable read! Some great ideas overall. I didn't really learn a lot of new things, but I do feel like it was still valuable as someone who is already very aware of their spendings etc

Very motivating!

I found this to be a valuable and motivating book. I have been thinking about starting budgetting but I never seemed to be able to move past the "thinking about it" stage. This book is full of good (although basic), advice and actionable steps, I recommend this book.

Useful information in a small book

Practical ideas, good stuff

Practical book. You can easily think of it as "out there" but if you take the time to actually try some of the things without fiddling with the ideas I think they will help most of you out. Take the time out to try some of the ideas, they're worth it.
