Hard hitting dose of reality in this amazing book!
on February 22, 2012
I have read many multiple books on money/debt management, and have been trying for years to find a system that works to help us budget accurately. This book was the BIGGEST eye opener that I have had in a long time. I thought I knew just about everything but boy oh boy was I totally wrong. Gails' advice is so brutally honest, and at times, a little hard to take. But, the way she describes the road to success is precise, clear, workable, and anyone can do it. Yes, it will be hard, and yes, many won't like it - seriously, who wants to give up an expensive lifestyle? But, if you want to escape the depths of debt, and want to live a happier, healthier life, sacrifice is necessary, and this book is exactly what I needed to help me on my way.
What impresses me the most is that this book is aimed towards Canadians, whereas so many others (ie: Suze Orman) are not. It covers all the insurance that Canadians can apply for, RRSP investments, Canadian retirement, and contact numbers for every agency you can think of.
Favourite tip: If you think you cannot control your credit card spending while doing the program, throw your credit card into your fish tank or behind your fridge - laughed out loud, but then thought, why not? So far, its worked for me!
I'm already seeing the way I spend changing and this dose of reality was just what I needed to help me along my way to financial freedom.
