A lot of resolutions and goals were made for this year and we’re already a quarter into the year. My goal was to attain financial freedom – meaning I don’t have to depend on my monthly allowance as a student. This meant that I could start saving money, making investments and buying what the hell I wanted.
Does this sound like you? Then here’s what you need to do to become intentional about achieving that goal and getting to tick it off at the end of the year
I’m sure you are wondering why you need to read this book. Here’s why?
Characters and Book Elements
Self-development books can be a little difficult to finish or even stick with till the end which is why I recommend this book.
The author makes use of a storyline which made it a whole lot easier to finish the book.
The characters were entertaining and relatable to some extent. With the lives of 5 women characters – Zuri, Adesuwa, Ladun, Tami and Lara, the author explains how to manage your finance, work your way out of debt and start investing.
She allows for a romantic interest to develop between characters which to me proves that this isn’t a hopeless situation. In addition to that, the author’s style of writing is different and unique.
From the first chapter, I could tell there was so much to learn. I would advise keeping an open mind.
A minor disadvantage could be that one could get carried away by the storyline and wander off into la-la land only to be grounded back to reality by the financial advice laced in every chapter.
At the end of each chapter, there’s an exercise and a more in-depth explanation of the chapter. There were also added resources to get right into the investment and savings. You wouldn’t feel like all that advice and not a single memo on how to get started.
However, It is based in an African setting but like I said before, keep an open mind. The setting of the story doesn’t lessen the impact of the book. I hope this doesn’t discourage you from reading it.
P.S: Meeting Arese Ugwu is now on my bucket list
If you’re like me and you find it difficult to read a self-development book or even finish one but you want to educate yourself financially, this book is just right for you. Don’t think it’s too early or too late to be read it!
To every woman out there who wants to become a GIRL BOSS, this should be your no. 1 book.
