Publisher's Description

Too many women feel like they lack the know-how to take control of their financial lives. But it's not the level of their knowledge that's the problem, says personal financial expert Mary Hunt; it's their lack of confidence. Being in debt isn't a money problem--it's an attitude problem. And Hunt is here to help women develop a confident, capable attitude toward money so that they can take control of their finances.

Using the lessons she's learned from her own hard-fought battle with debt, Hunt empowers women to develop nine essential money habits, including giving, saving, investing, rejecting unsecured debt, preparing for emergencies, getting what you pay for, and more. She also includes a six-week action plan to help women get started right away.

    Mary Hunt in her new book, The Financially Confident Woman published by Revell shows us What You Need to Know to Take Charge of Your Money.

    From the back cover: You have what it takes to take control of your money

    Have you ever felt that you lack the know-how to take control of your financial life? Youre not alone. But its not a lack of savvy thats the problem, says personal financial expert Mary Hunt; its a lack of confidence. And Hunt is here to help you develop a can-do attitude toward money so that you can take control of your finances.

    Using the lessons shes learned from her own hard-fought battle with debt, Hunt empowers you to cultivate nine essential money habits, including

    giving

    saving

    investing

    rejecting unsecured debt

    preparing for emergencies

    getting what you pay for

    and more

    She also includes a six-week action plan to help you get started right away.

    Youre smart, youre capable, and youre just a few steps away from a positive, confident financial future.

    Mary Hunt tells us that,financial confidence is a choice. Its a matter of learning simple financial principles, then consciously applying them over and over again until they become automatic responses-financial habits. Mary Hunt wants women to be financially confident and she goes about that task in four parts: Part One: Self-Examination, Part Two: Roles, Myths and Reformation, Part Three: Nine Habits of a Financially Confident Woman and Part Four: Becoming a Financially Confident Woman. Will it happen overnight? Sorry, no but the good news is that it will happen if what Ms. Hunt is teaching is applied. It is time to take charge of our money and be the master and not the slave. The Financially Confident Woman is a must have book. You might want to hold it in a special place on your shelf you might be referring to it again and again. This is also a great book to give as gifts to family and friends. They will think of you every time they put it to use. I recommend it highly.

    I recently finished reading The Financially Confident Woman by Mary Hunt. Wow! Who would have thought you could have fun reading a book on money management? Being an impulsive spender myself, I could relate very much with everything Mary Hunt had to say. All of her thoughts made sense to me- a girl who does not have a future in accounting and cringes every time tax season rolls around- and I actually learned quite a bit! Everything was laid out in a manner that is easily understood no matter what your background or social class. You do not need to be interested in money to enjoy this book. You just need to be willing to listen and ready to change those nasty money habits. And what a surprise it was to hear that my mother had read this book back in the day! I am proud to say that Mary Hunt has influenced two generations of financially confident women! This is definitely something that every woman- and man- should read! I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my fair and honest review.

    This is a good introductory level book for women on finances. It is written on a very personal level as Hunt has included quit a bit of her own story. Women who are looking for a very readable introduction to responsible financial living will benefit from this book.

    Hunt reminds us that financial confidence is not about getting more money. Rather, it is about learning to manage what we already have. By the end of the book, she says readers will have the tools to:

    assess our relationship with money

    take control of irresponsible behavior

    replace that behavior with responsible habits

    see that behavior become life long.

    In the first part of the book, Hunt tells her own financial story. She then helps us explore our beliefs, attitudes, and values and how they impact the way we handle money. She explains how habits are formed and how we can change them.

    She outlines nine specific habits of financially successful women in the second part of the book.

    The last part of the book is a six-week plan of action. The plan contains lots of work, such as keeping track of expenses for a month, but Hunt's plan allows for an acceptable amount to be done each week.

    This book contains good basic information on finances. Her suggestions are realistic and her plan practical. Some might feel her information is a little dated. She advocates balancing one's checkbook, for example. As she says of herself, well, I'm kinda old-fashioned. She does give several websites for help, such as in setting up a budget. This is a good book containing the minimum every woman should know about finances.

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.

    Like most people the New Year brings with it the determination to get on top of my finances. For years now I have been reading a book by Mary Hunt to help me get and stay on track. This year I read The Financially Confident Woman.

    Mary starts the book out with a humorous retelling of her first disastrous bookkeeping class in high school. If you've ever taken a class on bookkeeping or accounting that has left you less than confident about mastering the necessary financial skills needed you're going to love this book. One of my favorite qualities about Mary's books are that they are honest but leave you feeling hopeful. For example here's what she said in the introduction:

    "This is not a book about how to get more money. It's about how to become financially confident by learning how to manage what you already have. It's not a book equating poverty with spirituality. It's a book about right living, abundance, joy, and the peace of mind that results from financial confidence."

    To me that is the perfect description of this book. Each chapter takes you through the steps of figuring out where you are at financially and then setting a course for financial stability. Mary's use of personal stories and Biblical concepts set this book apart from the myriad of others on the market. Chapter 10 is titled A Financially Confident Woman Lives Below Her Means. As an example of how easily implemented her advice is she gives three ways to simplify that won't hurt in the least.

    1. Stop buying clothes that need dry-cleaned.

    2. Make water your beverage of choice.

    3. Sell stuff.

    The very last part of the book is a six-week plan for financial confidence that is VERY doable. Each week she asks you to spend the week implementing a small step that will help you achieve the goals set forth.

    I would recommend this book for any woman that is looking to become more savvy about her finances. This resource will definitely boost your confidence in your ability to manage what you have.

    I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
