Finance for the people : getting a grip on your finances / Paco de Leon.

De Leon, Paco, (author.).

Summary

Summary:

"A holistic, illustrated guide to navigating your financial life mindfully, no matter your financial situation We are all weird about money. Whether you have a lot or a little, your feelings and beliefs about money have been shaped by a combination of silence (or even shame) around talking about money, personal experiences, family and societal expectations, and a whole big complex system rigged against many of us from the start. Begin with that baseline premise and it's no surprise so many of us find it so difficult to save enough money (but way too easy to get trapped in ballooning credit card debt), emotionally draining to deal with student loans, and nearly impossible to understand the esoteric world of investing. Unlike most personal finance books that focus on skills and behaviors, Finance for the people asks you to examine your beliefs and experiences around money-blending extremely practical exercises with mindfulness, and including more than 50 illustrations and diagrams to make the concepts accessible (and even fun). With deep insider expertise from years spent in many different corners of the financial industry, Paco de Leon is a friendly, approachable, and wise guide who invites readers to change their relationship with money. With her holistic approach you'll learn how to: root out your unconscious beliefs about money untangle the mental and emotional burden of student loans to pay them off use a gratitude practice to help you think differently about spending break out of the debt cycle and begin building wealth This book is for anyone who feels unseen, ignored, or bored to death by the way personal finances are approached and taught, and is ready to go on a journey of self-discovery and step into their financial power"-- Provided by publisher.
