Make Money, Not Excuses
Why aren't we making more money? Doesn't everyone want the financial security that more money provides? Then why aren't we making smarter decisions about our money? The answers to these questions are often more complicated than the questions themselves. Jean Chatzky, author of Make Money, Not Excuses, believes that the reason most people aren't wealthier is that we tend to get in our own way, setting up roadblocks or relying on excuses that thwart us on the way towards achieving our financial goals. These patterns prevent us from earning more, saving and investing for the future and protecting what we've built. In an illuminating discussion about the nature of money and wealth, Chatzky locates the real reasons why people especially women rely on these excuses. She also provides strategies for ridding ourselves of these success-blocking excuses, putting audiences on the path towards real wealth, real financial security and peace of mind.
