I really love this book. It was like The Secret + a Suzy Ormond book. There was a lot of great advice. I dog-eared a lot of pages out of my library book, but I think I might just purchase this for future reference.

A great tool for anyone looking to save money, invest money, and get their finances together. There is even a wonderful section on how to start your own business.

What I liked best was the personal success stories scattered throughout that inspire and educate readers. There are also s
I'm looking forward to checking out the print version because the audio was really difficult for me to get through due to the authors reading style. Unfortunately, the website often referenced throughout the book is no longer available, so I'm hoping the book contains the worksheets that were described. UPDATE - I was able to find the worksheets using the web archive: You'll find the "Bonus Material" on the lower left of the page and most of them are stil ...more

Does the book contain a section on how to evade US taxes by putting large amounts of cash in secret shell accounts in Panama and othee countries like the author did?

This was a fine financial guide but a bit heavy on the "you go girl!", emphasis on the "girl" bit.

The book didn't have as many financial tips as I would have liked, or was hoping for, I enjoyed reading each of the women's personal experiences leading up to financial and business success. I wasn't much for the positive affirmations or practice exercises outlined in the book (just not my cup of tea).

While I found some of the information relating to investments and retirement funds to be useful, I thought that overall the book was poorly written. The 'girly-girl' theme was rather irritating and really took away from the information being presented. I would not recommend.

Completely condescending. Who cares if the author was anorexic/bulemic? What does that have to do with learning how to manage my money? Ack. I should have known better than to read a book geared towards women and finance. Back to Orman and Ramsey.

Misleading title and synopsis for me...she has some inspirational points. Not the best self-help book for empowering women I've ever read, but not the worst either. Read if a friend can lend it to you...don't spend the money on it.

Very encouraging and made me feel optimistic :) Loved her visual board idea, and the chapter on acting as-if.
