THE BEST personal finance book out there!

This is by far the best personal finance book I have ever bought on Audible! It was read by the author too. I love how she broke down the basics - all the things one needs to know. The tone of the book is very empowering and supportive! The message is consistent with the Clever Girl Academy courses and her podcast - Clever Girls Know. It's very easy to read - I also downloaded it on audible. This is a book I will continue to reference as I work through getting my finances in order. In addition to the action items, she also lays out tips and options for accomplishing each task. She does a great job of not only telling you how to take charge of your finances, but also sharing examples and offering choices.

She literally takes you by hand and shows you how to win at your personal finance! It's very clear that personal finance is not a one size fits all - Bola offers various methods for achieving success in the area of debit payoff, budgeting, saving, investing, getting organized, and so much more. My favorite part of the book was when she talks about how she achieved $100,000 in savings over 3 years! Which makes it less daunting after reading how she accomplished this.

I also really enjoyed the section on Investing. I had steered clear of investing outside of my 401k for a very long time, because I found it so intimidating - Bola does a great job of defining key terms and then offering tips for how I can get started.

Although she wrote the book for women, everyone can definitely benefit from it! Also makes a great gift :)

Great steps to follow and informative

This book has great information however the narration could be better. Very monotone. But if you are able to get through that you will finish in no time.

I have already recommended to all my girlfriends.

Great Financial Advice

Thank you for the great, well-structured advice and tips for building up my finances. I especially appreciated the action steps and overviews of: investments and retirement, starting up a side hustle, life insurance and emergency funds, and getting rid of debt. Thank you for helping me feel like building a solid financial strategy is possible!

This book was Awesome!!

I liked how this book was specifically written to help woman take control of their finances, although I believe that this book also benefits males not only woman and would be a great book for anyone who is trying to improve and get started on becoming financially independent. I also really liked how the author would give us real life examples of how we can put these practices to use in our every day life. Overall I would definitely this book.

Excellent financial advice for today's woman

I follow Bola on YouTube and Instagram, and am so happy that she has put her knowledge into this wonderful audio book (and hardcopy book).
The book is full of excellent financial information, which is beautifully read by Bola, and perfect for its target audience - women - using relatable examples (men will definitely benefit from reading/listing to this book too).
Thank you, Bola!
