ON YOUR OWN TWO FEET BY HELEN BAKER
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS BOOK?
This book was sent to me by a friend as I had mentioned I was interested in budgeting and setting myself up for financial independence as a single mum.
WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
This book is a good first port of call for any female wanting to reassess their financial position and get an understanding of what is important, where to start and how to get in a position of power and take ownership in relation to your money.
HOW LONG DID IT TAKE YOU TO READ?
I found this to be a really easy read and finished it in two nights after my 3-year-old was in bed. It is written in a way so as to make it very easy to understand and really easy to glide through even when in a sleep deprived, single mummy state!
WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT? WHY OR WHY NOT?
If you’re a beginner and just starting to look at your financial position then this is a great once over giving you a comprehensive list of what you need to think about and where you could go to get the assistance you require. This book gives a good coverage for women of any age whether you are a young single (or an old single for that matter!), a married mother, a single mother, a retiree, or ill. If you are a little more into your financial journey you may want more detail, but I valued it as a confirmation that what I’m doing and how I’m managing my financial position is on the right track.
