"A cheerful manifesto on removing obstacles between yourself and the income of your dreams." --New York Magazine
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of You Are a Badass, a life-changing guide to making the kind of money you've only ever dreamed of
You Are a Badass at Making Money will launch you past the fears and stumbling blocks that have kept financial success beyond your reach. Drawing on her own transformation--over just a few years--from a woman living in a converted garage with tumbleweeds blowing through her bank account to a woman who travels the world in style, Jen Sincero channels the inimitable sass and practicality that made You Are a Badass an indomitable bestseller. She combines hilarious personal essays with bite-size, aha concepts that unlock earning potential and get real results. Learn to:
* Uncover what's holding you back from making money * Give your doubts, fears, and excuses the heave-ho * Relate to money in a new (and lucrative) way * Shake up the cocktail of creation * Tap into your natural ability to grow rich * Shape your reality--stop playing victim to circumstance * Get as wealthy as you wanna be
"This book truly crystallizes the concept that financial abundance is an inside job--in that it all begins with your mindset--and Sincero gets serious (in the funniest ways possible) about helping you identify your particular limiting beliefs surrounding money." --PopSugar
This was a book that my mastermind read way back in October, but I was way too busy then to read it. I feel as if I need to change my wealth mindset and to get me all fired up for next year. I feel as in I am in a slump with my writing and business. I loved the book You Are A Badass and thought I would give this book a shot.
What I liked
I loved her snarky sense of humor. Jen Sincero read her book on audio and her personality shined through. I read You are a Badass in print and while her personality shined through in writing, you can get a feel for her in audio.
I was right in that I did not have a wealth mindset. I grew up in central Appalachia and the people there could make a million dollars, and they would still claim poverty. I am the same way, so I cant judge. I have read Get Rich Lucky Bitch, and while that book was just ok, You are a badass at making money spoke to me. I need all the wealth training I can get yo!
What I did not like
It is the same as any other mindset book. There is nothing I haven’t heard/read before in this book. It was a little..repetitive. I am getting burned out on self-help books. Feel that if maybe I was in a different mood then I would have appreciated it more. Ah well…
It was sooo cheesy at some points. Like repeat a mantra every day and meditate and all of that good stuff. I mean I KNOW I should be grateful that I am so blessed but still. I kind of wish that she would dial down the cheese factor a bit in some places.
This is an excellent book if you are looking to change your mindset about money. That is what this is a mind-set book. I know intellectually what to do but getting myself the BELIEVE I can be wealthy is a whole nother story. I am going to keep doing it though. I figure more so or later it will stick and that I too can be a wealth magnet. It has some real nuggets of gold in this book that make this one worth buying for your home library.
