The Financially Confident Woman: A Book Review

About The Book:

You have what it takes to take control of your money
Have you ever felt that you lack the know-how to take control of your financial life? You're not alone. But it's not a lack of savvy that's the problem, says personal financial expert Mary Hunt; it's a lack of confidence. And Hunt is here to help you develop a can-do attitude toward money so that you can take control of your finances.

Using the lessons she's learned from her own hard-fought battle with debt, Hunt empowers you to cultivate nine essential money habits, including 
· giving
· saving
· investing
· rejecting unsecured debt
· preparing for emergencies
· getting what you pay for
· and more

She also includes a six-week action plan to help you get started right away.

You're smart, you're capable, and you're just a few steps away from a positive, confident financial future.

My Review:

Are you looking for a book that will help you become more organized when it comes to finances? Do you feel overwhelmed when you think about how to get on track with your spending and budgeting? Then reading The Financially Confident Woman is the book for you!

Mary Hunt gives straight forward tips and encouragement to women to learn the basics of finances. From understanding how to budget to being able to read your credit check. The book is very well-written, very nicely organized and very easy to read. While there is a lot of great material in the book my favorite part was the six week plan to get control of your finances. The section is full of charts, and easy to use/understand formulas that will help you be confident about controlling your finances. I also like that the book is organized in such a way that you would not necessarily need to read the book from cover to cover, but rather pick which chapters you need to concentrate on for your life. Whether you are a beginner at organizing your finances or just need some refresher, check out this book.

Overall, the book is a fantastic resource for women of all ages and stages. This would be a very handy book to gift a college graduate or just starting out on their own.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
