I’m doing a book giveaway for “Psych yourself Rich!”
I haven’t read it, but then again, I don’t really read personal finance how-to books any more.
So instead of taking away a free book from someone who actually really needs it out there, they’re going to give a copy away to one of my readers!
It’s written by a woman named Farnoosh Torabi (isn’t she pretty?) and if you are a Gail Vaz-Oxlade fan, she is along the same vein of tough love, to get people (particularly women, although her advice spans across all ages and genders) in charge of their finances.
The basic premise of the book is How to Take Charge of your Finances 101:
STOP AGONIZING–AND START ACTING
Overcome the behaviors that keep you from achieving your fi nancial, personal, and professional goals
ASSERT YOURSELF, TAKE CONTROL, AND STOP SHORTING YOURSELF
Shift the power balance in all your financial transactions
GET MORE OUT OF THE MONEY YOU ALREADY HAVE
Make more sensible decisions about what to buy and how to invest
LIVE YOUR PASSION: IDENTIFY WHAT’S IMPORTANT TO YOU AND GO AFTER IT
Learn what it takes to succeed on your own terms, make the commitment, and do it
I hear she has some real-life examples in there that will keep anyone (male or female) interested, and if you want a taste of the book, check out the Amazon link located below to Search Inside and read a couple of pages.
(Note: If you do decide to buy the book instead of waiting and entering the giveaway, I get a bit of money from Amazon if you use this link to buy it).
