5 Great Money Books to Gift this Holiday Season
Who it’s for: Individuals and couples who are working hard and accumulating wealth and success but not enjoying life to the fullest
What do I think of it? I’ve read close to a hundred books about money, wealth, and investing, and this one definitely makes my Top 10 List. Why? It’s insightful, full of heartfelt stories, and easy to read. (Not what you’d expect from a CFP, right?) If you are looking for a healthy, well-balanced philosophy of managing your money without being controlled by it, put Living a Rich Life on the top of your reading list. I plan on gifting it to all of my clients who graduate from my financial coaching program to provide a road map for their continued success into the future.
Who it’s for: The online entrepreneur or coach that wants to take their business to the next level.
What do I think of it? I’ve worked with Jenn Scalia as part of her online group coaching programs and her advice is GOLD! The fact that she is offering up some of her best strategies for less than $10 is absolutely amazing. If you have an online business that you want to take to the next level, Jenn’s the one who can guide you up the mountain. Don’t get me wrong, it won’t be easy. However, if you are willing to commit to the inner and outer work Jenn prescribes, you will see things shift very quickly in your business as I have. Her blend of encouragement plus zero tolerance for excuses will keep you fired up about the future of your business and life!
Who it’s for: College juniors and seniors, plus anyone with lingering student loan debt.
What do I think of it? This book is a must-read for anyone graduating from college with student loan debt. Angela Ozar teaches a proven process to quickly and methodically destroy that debt, so it’s not hanging around your neck a decade later. By sharing her personal testimony, Angela shows how to eliminate your student loan debt, so you can get on with living the life you want! Perfect for anyone with lingering student loan debt.
Money is Emotional: Prevent Your Heart from Hijacking Your Wallet
Christine Luken (Yes, Me!)
Who it’s for: Anyone that wants to come up higher in terms of their personal finances.
My favorite Amazon review: “Like so many things in life, budgeting is simple, but not easy. Money is Emotional is a powerful tool that helped me gain clarity on money. The real-life case studies and the author’s own life experience illustrate so clearly the way we can all make emotional decisions that impact our short and long-term financial health. Getting a better understanding of my relationship with money (yes, that’s a thing!), has helped bring my budget and goals into alignment. My husband and I intend to use the workbook each year as we review our current-year financial successes and plan our 1-year, 5-year, and 10+ goals!” – Jennifer Swendiman
Manage Money Like A Boss: A Financial Guide for Creative Entrepreneurs
Christine Luken (Yes, Me Again!)
Who’s it for: Creative entrepreneurs who are intimidated by the financial aspects of business
My favorite Amazon review: “The author truly understands the heart of a “creative” business owner. This book has helped me better organize and take my business model and process to another level. It covers every aspect of business! Plus the book gives easy to follow paths when it comes to both business and personal finance. It’s loaded with additional resources and real-life testimonies of creative business owners that are overcoming and winning. I found the author’s own transparency inspiring. As a new entrepreneur, I understand how overwhelming it can be to start a business without a large investment. But this book gives direction on how to financially recover and scale your business. It is relative and flows in a way that you can easily put the information into action right away!” – Candra Evans
