Being ‘Bad’ can be OK when it comes to money

  • “You are a Badass” by Jen Sincero

A while back, we reviewed the book “You are a Badass” by Jen Sincero.

Since that time, her motivational book has become one of our bookstore’s regular sellers, with us needed to reorder a stack every week!

And bonus, the author, Jen Sincero, even came into the bookstore and was pleasantly surprised to find her books featured, and learning that her book was so popular even here on Kauai.

(Nice lady, by the way, and certainly walks her talk!)

With the success of “You are a Badass”, Sincero has penned herself a worthy sequel:

“You are a Badass at Making Money: Master the Mindset of Wealth”

Utilizing her casual, modern, and frank style and no-nonsense approach, Sincero tackles the next biggest thing that causes so much personal anxiety after self-esteem: money!

What really makes her take helpful, in our opinion, is that she is coming from the perspective of a person who was living month-to-month for many years, as many of us may have experienced or are still experiencing. It is from this “ground-zero” of sorts that she began her sudden shifts in life that allowed wealth and money to start coming into her life. The change? Making decisions!

Sometimes the most effective things are the simplest!

In a series of 13 easy and fun-to-read, relatable chapters, “You are a Badass at Making Money” truly helps open the doors many of us didn’t know we could open or didn’t realize we were closing unconsciously!

Even though our bookstore is doing very well, we, too, found gems in her writing that helped to put some money things in better perspective with choices. And, you know what? Results seem to come quick!

Definitely worth the read. Check it out yourself, and discover that you, too, are a “Badass at Making Money!”
