Money, A Love Story
Empowerment, Inspirational, Spirituality
Having a good relationship with money is tough—whether you have millions in the bank or just a few bucks to your name. Why? Because just like any other relationship, your life with money has its ups and downs, its twists and turns, its breakups and makeups. And just like other relationships, living happily with money really comes down to love. In fact, love is such an essential part of getting and keeping your financial house in order that money maven Kate Northrup made it the basis of her book.
After taking the Money Love Quiz to see where on the spectrum your relationship with money stands—somewhere between "on the outs" and "it's true love!"—Northrup takes you on a rollicking ride to a better understanding of yourself and your money. Step-by-step exercises that address both the emotional and practical aspects of your financial life help you figure out your personal perceptions of money and wealth and how to change them for the better. You'll learn about thought patterns that may be holding you back from earning what you're worth or saving what you can. You'll learn how to chart your current financial life and create a plan to get you to where you want to be-whether that's earning enough to live in a penthouse in Manhattan or a cabin in the Rockies.
Using client stories and her own saga of moving from $20,000 in debt to complete financial freedom by the age of 28, Northrup acts as a guide in your quest for personal financial freedom. She'll teach you how to shift your beliefs about money, create a budget, spend in line with your values, get out of debt, and so much more. In short, she'll teach you to love your money, so you can love your life.

I've read fifty times my weight in self-help books, but Kate Northrup's "Money A Love Story" takes the cake as the one I had the most resistance to. I don't think I'm unique in the sense that money is a hot button, uncomfortable, emotional issue for me. It brings up a lot of fear and pain. I'd rather discuss my sex life with my mom, than discuss financial matters. That said, this book was a real eye opener for me. The author has been there, and done that when it comes to debt and overspending. The fact that she has overcome those stumbling blocks, and created a healthy, abundant financial situation for herself is extremely inspiring. Her book really gets to the heart of the issues surrounding money. Stepping into prosperity thinking is not an overnight change. I suppose that could be the case for some, but for many of us it's about baby steps, and not taking any leaps before we're ready. My favorite part of Kate's book, is where she shows how Esther Hick's Abraham material fits into financial planning, and taking an active role in being money minded. This is a fantastic book, a fun read, and inspiring. Certainly one to keep around, and reread over the years. I look forward to reading future books by Kate Northrup.
I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for review purposes. My opinion is mine alone, I encourage you to formulate one for yourself after reading this book.
Kate writes from experience and her story is truly inspiring. She expresses the need to build a solid personal foundation from which one can begin to grow a fruitful connection with money… a foundation that accepts economic adversity and transforms any negative attitudes about yourself, your life, and your personal perception of money for the better. It is on this path one can find the way towards financial freedom and true prosperity. Very powerful stuff!
I believe this book to be a gem and is too good not to share with others. It’s answered many questions I had about financial planning, prompting me to take a more active role and encouraging me to take steps towards my own “financial freedom movement.”
