This one had to come first since it’s my favorite book ever! The funny thing is that I would have never ever bought this book for myself (phew money issues, me?) but fortunately my business coach sent me this book…and my life hasn’t been the same since.

I rarely related to a book this much. It’s like Jen Sincero is in your head, working hard to get you all the wealth you ever dreamed of.

Wealth is already available to each of us. All you have to do is change your mindset and tap into that wealth. This book teaches you how.
