I was browsing in the local Staples and your book jumped out among several other financial advice books.
I could see leafing through it how you can get to the simple yet important issues that resonate with the reasons for procrastination and ways to overcome them.
Before I saw your book (I didn’t know about your TV appearances as I don’t have a TV)I had done an assessment of how much I spend. I put my one and only debit card in the file drawer, withdrew the amount of cash I figured I needed for the month. I put the weeks allowance for almost everything in envelopes: grocery, gas, household, meals out and movies, etc. It helps and I was surprised that you recommend this. It’s back to basics. Your “Smart Women Finish Rich” is exactly what I needed to fine tune my efforts and to keep me on track and motivated, with a plan. It has especially helped me organize my important papers. That was worth the price of the book 100 times over. I feel that I can really master the complicated world of finances with your help. Your instructions on how to file are priceless. I’ve never worked in an office or had any experience filing. When I would try organizing things my mind would go in 20 directions and I would get so confused I’d give up in a worse mess than I started with. Now all the papers I need to work with to help me control that part of my life are where I can easily find them and I can work with them. You can’t imagine what a pleasure it is to have this much control in an area that was total confusion.
Thank you very much for you help.
By-the-way, I’m 74 y.young and going strong. I don’t have a picture of myself yet but will get one.
