Straight to the point information!
First book I could actually get my husband to listen to!
I get it, adulting is hard. Sadly, many school systems have not placed a high value on learning taxes or about investment and sometimes, we are not ready to hear or take in all of this scary talk. Veronica really gets it and has given you an amazing tool to keep around. Money Matters is a book you will want to reference back to many times over! All of the information is broken down into basic terminology and laid out in an attainable way that you can use to start getting your adult life in order. Unlike many other books on finances, Veronica does a great job of being right to the point and not boring you with too much detail that would overload our minds. She lets you know what is most important and gives you guidance on where you can dig deeper if that is your choice. This is a great book and I know it's going to be my go-to high school graduation present book! This is perfect for anyone looking to learn more about money/finance and I think the sooner you read it the better your life will be! I can't wait for the next book to come out, but in the meantime I think I'll start taking action on the advice given in this book!
