Review

It doesn’t take a soldier to understand the importance of discipline. Just ask a mother!   Because managing our daily household budget is a top priority for me, I’ve found myself consulting more and more finance blogs and books to help us not only plan an effective day-to-day budget, but also help us plan for the long-term. Some finance books can be very boring and because I simply don’t have time to mull over the heavy language, I often end up tossing these books to the side. But this book is different. It is organized and relatable and I found myself completely invested in the author’s personal stories. I also appreciate all the lists that he provides throughout the book.  This book both educates and inspires me.
