The Money Guide to Transform Your Life
Here Lynn tells us what the book aims to do and what it is all about
Since starting my money blogging business Mrs MummyPenny nearly ten years ago I’ve become increasingly aware of a certain kind of poverty in the UK: it is a poverty of access to financial education and knowledge. It is a poverty that most impacts women and minority groups, and it is one that I have made it my mission to help end.
My goal is for every woman to have financial understanding and freedom. What could be more transformative?
My book is split into two parts.
Part 1 with the story of my life, revealing how several massive events have shaped my relationship with money in different ways, some good, many bad. I do this to show the extent to which our relationship with money is emotional, it is part of who we are and not something rational and objective. Understanding that through the lens of my story will hopefully help you to see your own relationship with money in a new and potentially revolutionary light. Part 1 goes on to cover short-term personal finance, everyday management that many women must do and figure out for themselves. I talk budgeting, money saving on household bills, food, family time, healthy body and mind. I also talk debt repayment and making money.
Part 2 is about medium- to long-term finance. In this section I walk you through the tools that can help guide you towards financial freedom. There are chapters on wills, insurance, savings, investing, pensions and setting up your own business. I have made LOTS of mistakes through life with these finance areas, and I don’t hold back in revealing some of the messy places I’ve landed. We are all human. If there’s a better place to learn from than mistakes, I don’t know about it. Though if by sharing mine, I can save you from making the same ones that would be a real success in my mind!
