Whether youve made these mistakes or you want to avoid them, if youre ready to take charge of your financial life then this is the book for you. In it, Jean shares these valuables lessons:
- Where to start
- How to decode financial jargon (its easier than you think)
- How to get over your Im not smart enough to deal with money feelings
- Why being a good-enough investor will make you more money in the long-term (while trying to be a great investor will drive you crazy)
- Why you might think you are bad at math, and why that doesnt have to be true
- How (and where) to save your money
- Why women make better investors--and higher returns--than men
Jean is famous for her ability to explain money and investing. In a clear and accessible way, she breaks down all the scariest parts of dealing with money--from investing in stocks to saving for your retirement--to make them doable, easy, and yes, even enjoyable. She also includes throughout a Map to a Million, great tips on easy and quick financial changes you can make immediately . . . that really add up!
Are You Ready to Be Rich?
If you want to get rich, if you want to be wealthier than you are today, you really need to do only four things. Thats right, just four things.
- You need to make a decent living
- You need to spend less than you make
- You need to invest the money you dont spend so that it can work as hard for you as youre working for yourself
- And you need to protect yourself and this financial world youve built so that a disaster--big or small--doesnt take it all away from you
Everything else is just window-dressing. The fees--and how to avoid them. The advisors--and how to hire them. The deals. The scams. The ins. The outs. They are all interesting. Some of them are even quite important. But until you have conquered the heart of the matter, they are all minutia.
The four cornerstones, by contrast, are the meat and potatoes of your financial life. If you do those things today, youll start getting rich tomorrow. And once you feel set financially, youll be able to start focusing on the truly important things in life. --from the Introduction

Are you looking for some of the best excuses to get money from parents? Frankly, that would depend on how your parents react when it comes to giving money, the relationship you have with them and their financial situation at the time you ask.
Could the reason that you have been giving for the lack of a financial breakthrough be really an excuse? Your money story may be a cover that you have created for helping you avoid pain or to playing small. Or it could be that your ego needs to know that it is not diminished in any way. The excuses that you tell is your way out to feeling justified in your behaviour or the results you have been getting. All of us have, at some point, made excuses. We may feel obliged to give an excuse sometimes not to hurt the other party.
