Much of the book includes things that people have only learned after they’ve made life-changing mistakes. Only then do they ask the question, “why didn’t anyone ever tell me that?” Well, Mom is telling you now, along with thousands of other people that are simply seeking some foundational knowledge about money. Most people did not grow up with positive financial role models in their lives and were never adequately educated about money–not at home, not in school, and not even in college. So here is your “textbook” on money matters that will raise your financial IQ. The help that you will get in this book will give you the power to make better financial decisions. Take a peek at the self-taught wisdom of this mother as she speaks to her daughter through her smart, no-nonsense Money Letters.
