Publisher's Summary

Finally, a financial plan that lets you be YOU, only richer. 

It's time to throw away all your old notions of what financial advice should look like. Because if you're looking for a book to put you on an austerity savings plan that has you giving up vacations and lattes, you're out of luck. But if you're looking to get your finances in rock-hard shape - in less time than it takes to finish a workout - then Alexa von Tobel, founder and CEO of LearnVest, has your back. 

How? Through the LearnVest Program. First, you'll take stock of where you stand today. Then, you'll create your customized 50/20/30 plan. 50/20/30 simply refers to the percentage breakdown of how to spend your take-home pay each month. The 50 gets the essentials out of the way so you don't have to stress about them. The 20 sets your foundation for the future, then the 30 is left to spend on the things that bring happiness to your life. 

By the time you're finished reading this book, you'll walk away with a financial game plan tailored to your priorities, your hopes and dreams, and your lifestyle. And, because von Tobel and the team at LearnVest are experts at financial planning in the online era, you'll also learn how to integrate your financial plan into your mobile, social, digital life. Like your own personal financial planner between two covers, this book will set you up for a secure, worry-free money future, without having to give up things you love. 

So toss those old-school financial guides out the window, and get ready to start living your richest life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

"Controlling your personal finances means controlling your destiny - and being able to build your own entrepreneurial life.

It didn't resonate with me.

There was useful information but I am not sure a 20 something was her audience. It was fine but there are better out there

Wish it were read by author

This book doesn't translate well to an audiobook. I wish it were read by author, especially since people already know her voice from her radio show.

Surprisingly excellent!

I thought I was in for an infomercial type sales pitch when I first started listening. But the book proved to be a very practical, nuts and bolts breakdown, dealing with modern personal financial topics. This book speaks to where real people live their lives. I would say it is among the top five personal finance coaching books currently available.
Only criticism here of the audio book version is that frankly, they should have had someone else read the text. Nancy's voice and speaking style sound like a Rhetoric 101 professor who just got back form her tenth smoke break of the day at 10am. Sorry, not sorry.
Still, overall an excellent book, and I will highly recommend it.
