It’s finally here: the week when I launch my very first book! That’s right, Rich Bitch: A Simple 12-Step Plan for Getting Your Financial Life Together…Finally comes out tomorrow. It’s been a few years in the making and a true labor of love. Needless to say: I. am. pumped.
I wrote this book for my former self, the girl who smiled and nodded through money conversations because 1) she didn’t speak the language of money and, 2) she didn’t want to admit that.
I am probably the least likely person to be in the business news world. I didn’t grow up with The Wall Street Journal on the kitchen table. There was no talk about stocks or bonds in my family…ever. As part of an immigrant family, I was raised thinking that stashing your cash under your mattress was the best place to keep your money. I never learned or thought about how to grow that money through investing, and how to make my money work for me.
But (thankfully) I was forced to learn the language of finance—and fast—when I landed a job on the floor at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. At just 18, I was young and hungry and didn’t want to pass up an amazing job opportunity just because I didn’t yet…know what I was talking about. So, I learned. I studied. I wanted to be a part of the global money conversation that was happening all around me. At first it looked liked Chinese, then French, and then finally it started to make sense. And I was able to not only speak the language of finance—I was able to speak it to the world.
More than a decade later, and I’m still speaking it. But this time, to YOU.
I hope you love this book as much as I loved writing it. Grab your copy here…and enjoy!!
