This is a wonderful new book about how to manage money. I always love books like this. I believe the author presents a fresh new way to think about money.
Managing your money can be frustrating and confusing. Life is expensive today. Whether you make $30,000 or $130,000 a year, you might feel like you’re constantly broke. Can you afford that new car, that vacation, that night out?
You may think so, but knowing for sure feels impossible. And rigid budgets that force you to spend your money in unrealistic ways don’t make things any clearer either.
But what if there was a new way to manage your money? one that left you certain you had your bases covered and then let you enjoy the rest of your money by spending it.
Shannon Lee Simmons is a fresh voice in the world of personal finance. He understands the new and very real pressures to survive modern life and keep up in the age of social media.
Shannon doesn’t lecture, judge or patronize. He is the founder of the wildly popular New School of Finance. He recognized that most of her thousands of financial planning clients felt broke, no matter what their income. And feeling broke can be as bad as actually being broke, because it can lead to overspending and misery. So, she came up with a new plan that is outlined in this book.
her approach takes a different approach to finances, looking at the root causes of the pressure to spend and showing why traditional budgets don’t work. It is a very practical book that will break the cycle of guilt, understand why you overspend and banish unhappy spending from your life.
