    Wow. I need this book. I struggle with never knowing whether I can really afford something, whether it be pure maple syrup or a vacation, or a pair of boots, or… (you get the picture). Thanks for sharing this!

    I agree. This book plus EEBA (a budgeting app) saved my finances.

    For anyone who is self employed or wants to become self employed, this handy manual of all things financial is a must-read. The author’s friendly, easy to relate to examples and insights will set you on the path to financial freedom no matter how averse you are to accounting or budgeting. A lot of emphasis is placed on how to tackle debt, but even if you are lucky enough not to have that problem, their is a wealth (pun intended) of useful info here. How to assess your income and spending, how to save for taxes and retirement, how to spend less on taxes, why and when you should hire an accountant or financial planner, how to get excited about saving money, and much more. I highly recommend this finance bible and I’m only 3/4 of the way through it! It will not disappoint.
