Andrea Baxter is the ideal narrator for this friendly approach to women's financial education. The premise of the audiobook is that women can learn how to take fiscal responsibility for themselves and rely on other women for sound advice, as well. Delivered in a casual and comfortable manner, the production is easy to listen to; the material and approach will appeal to those who have been intimidated by dense financial management titles. Baxter's style is completely in sync with the overall message of the work. As she recounts the various personal anecdotes of the women who contributed their experiences with money for the volume, her conversational style makes their personal details as familiar as any confidences shared by one's own close friends.
Their proven recipe for success has since been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show and MSNBC, and in the New York Daily News.
How did they do it? These five women - with varied careers in marketing, public relations, social work, and TV production - joined forces to create a fun, simple, effective strategy for achieving financial success, forming a money club, and supporting each other every step of the way. Now, in this extraordinary hands-on guide, the women, who dubbed themselves the Smart Cookies, share the secrets of their success.
Weaving anecdotes from their own lives with practical how-to advice, the Smart Cookies offer strategies that cut across the financial spectrum, whether you're deeply in debt or just want to manage your money better. Tackling the unique financial challenges facing women today, they offer easy-to-follow advice on everything from creating a spending plan to boosting your income to starting your own money club.
