I was going to start a series of posts about Suze Orman's The Money Class, but I didn't get around to reading the book yet. Soon, I promise. I had to finish The Help (oh, highly recommend!) and a neighbor let me borrow Me Talk Pretty One Day.
Back to Suze. I've enjoyed her books for years now, starting with The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous & Broke and Women & Money: Owning the Power to Control Your Destiny. When I say something to Goose and start or end it with, "Girlfriend!", I think of Suze. Like, "Girlfriend, you better pull it together and stop throwing a fit on the floor." Thanks, Suze.
Yes, I know she can sometimes be a bit much-- this depiction isn't too far off.
Nevertheless, her advice is good, and I decided to buy her most recent book, The Money Class, after catching most of her PBS special. You can watch it here.
Our generation has to think differently about money, or at least we should. We can't keep spending ourselves into oblivion, personally or as a nation.
Stay tuned for blog posts about The Money Class.
