"Really well written and on point.  An important topic."

-- Craig Breitsprecher, CFP® and bassist of Prosthetic Records artists Fires in the Distance


"What I liked is how Jessie related to everyday life and gave real examples of her own methods of saving and spending. It is easy to say 'spend less and earn more,' but how?  She goes into that with real-life, attainable concrete examples without getting preachy or sounding like she is lecturing the reader."
