5.0 out of 5 starsLife application far beyond money!
Reviewed in the United States on September 25, 2012
Make Your Money Count is filled with real-life stories and application far beyond money. This book challenged me to establish my life purpose, develop a plan to fulfill that purpose, and align my actions so that after some time I can look back and know that I've done all that I can reach my goals. This book filled my living room with laughter (and a few tears) as Jim shares his own life story, accomplishments and mistakes. This book hit home, called me to action. But it didn't leave me wondering what to do. I knew exactly what to after reading this book! Chapter by chapter I gained clarity about what I wanted out of life and how to align my actions (and finances) with that. I would highly recommend this book to anyone feeling stuck, anyone evaluating their financial plan, or anyone just starting to manage their finances for the first time.
Reading this book has caused me to question the way I manage my own finances and helped me to think long term and not just about the day to day. Jim's writing style makes it easy for anyone to understand where they are with their money and where they could be and it's not all about accounting software, sums and budgets - Jim makes financial planning very real and easy to understand. By reading this book you'll learn to think about how money applies to your own lifestyle, dreams and goals. Every time I want that new gadget I'll remember reading about the "Santa Claus effect" and consider the item I want to purchase on a deeper level.
I would go so far as to say this is a life changing book for me!
