Getting Good with Money AudioBook Summary
Certified financial coach and mom Jessi Fearon leads the way for overwhelmed people struggling to get a handle on their finances. She lays out the doable steps her family underwent to pay off all their debts – even their mortgage!
Jessi Fearon vividly remembers the day she broke down, knowing that her family could not pay the bills with a second baby on the way. Like many Americans, she and her husband were overwhelmed by debt and living paycheck to paycheck, wondering if it was possible to ever get ahead, or even catch up. But on that day something changed, and they decided to make a drastic lifestyle change that would put them back on the path toward their dreams. Their decision not only allowed her to stay home with their children, but in two years, they were able to pay off their consumer debt, and in six years, they paid off their home mortgage – all on their $47,000-a-year income. Now she shares what she’s learned with others who are struggling, just like she once did.
Getting Good with Money is written for the busy, overwhelmed people who want to manage the money they have while still giving their family a good life, even if they don’t have a finance degree or a six-figure income. With been-there wisdom and step-by-step help, Jessi shows people how to:
- take control of their finances with practical first steps to budgeting and understanding debt;
- identify the four different ways people struggle with money, and how each one affects the way they manage – or mismanage – their money;
- replace the lies they’ve believed about money with the truths to overcome barriers and better understand how to make their version of the American Dream a reality;
- discover various money-saving apps, financial tips, and ideas for generating additional income to pay off debt more quickly.
More than just a “how-to budget” book, this is a comprehensive road map to financial freedom from an average family making things work on a middle-class salary.
