This book makes managing money fun!
By the time you’ve been through the book you will understand your money situation a lot better: you will know where you are and what you need to do to get where you want to go. The best bit is that some of those money-saving tips and tricks can be started immediately.
Now, have you ever wondered what the average millionaire looks like? Globally there are thousands of people who started off with nothing except perhaps a good education and sometimes not even that and they have ended up with a net worth in excess of a million dollars. Heather always planned to be one of those people and in the seven and a half years since she graduated has taken a massive stride towards that goal using the tips in this very book.
This book is about taking control of your finances. If you want to live a debt-free life with plenty of cash to throw at your desires all you need to do is set yourself some money rules as outlined in this book.
Former investment banker Heather Katsonga-Woodward is an author and entrepreneur. She graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2005. She lives in Birmingham UK with her family.
