For every woman who has strug­gled with the con­cept of in­vest­ing or groaned at the thought of re­tire­ment funds and col­lege tu­ition, Smart Mom, Rich Mom: How to Build Wealth While Rais­ing a Fam­ily puts ev­ery­thing into per­spec­tive with ac­tion steps and strate­gies for work­ing and stay-at-home moms. Bring­ing out the “fun” in “funds,” Kim­berly Palmer, who was the se­nior money edi­tor at US News & World Re­port for nine years, cov­ers ev­ery­thing from elim­i­nat­ing credit card debt and max­i­miz­ing on­line shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ences to com­mis­er­at­ing over the tri­als of lac­tat­ing at the of­fice.

Smart moms will learn how to make the most of each pay­check while cul­ti­vat­ing ca­reer sat­is­fac­tion and pass­ing on an ap­pre­ci­a­tion for present cir­cum­stances to the next gen­er­a­tion. Women in all walks of life will gain confidence as the pur­pose of the 401(k) and the 529 ac­count sud­denly makes per­fect sense, and fi­nan­cial se­cu­rity is within reach rather than an ab­stract con­cept. Mix­ing hard facts with hu­mor, even the thought of life in­sur­ance gains some lev­ity when paired with the Aging­booth app that projects our fu­ture, el­derly, po­ten­tially more savvy selves.
