Book Review: Million Dollar Diva

Remember back here when I reviewed Safe Money Millionaire?  I really liked that book.  And that's why, even though my reading-anything-other-than-textbooks time is limited, I was really intrigued by the idea of this new book by the authors of Safe Money Millionaire, and my friend, respected fiction author, Tristi Pinkston.  In essence, she was going to become a Safe Money Millionaire guinea pig.  She was going to open up her financial situation to Brett and Ethan and see if they could offer her a brighter future than what she was currently picturing for herself.  She was swinging the doors wide open, with a refreshing honesty that most of America can relate to behind its closed doors, and through her personal journey, offer hope to others.  

And she did!  I loved this!  

The book is called Million Dollar Diva, and it is written to give women financial advice for the different challenges that we might face, but the advice is equally pertinent to men, or, as in Tristi's case, couples and families, since this is a journey that she and her husband embark on together.  In a marriage, both people would need to be equally committed to make any financial goal work, and this is no exception.  

In the beginning of the book, Tristi is bogged down with debt.  $33,000 worth, if I remember correctly. She and her husband didn't rack up that debt spending lavishly and traveling the globe, but like many, it was here a little and there a little putting things like groceries and diapers on credit cards when ends just wouldn't stretch to meet.  They faced setbacks like employment struggles and health crises.  And though they were conscientious and frugal, they just didn't see a light at the end of the tunnel.  They certainly didn't see a fulfillment of financial dreams like a bigger house, the ability to vacation, and a secure retirement.  But Brett and Ethan helped change all of that, bucking conventional wisdom, and it is all spelled out in the book, and available to you, too.  

(From the back cover:) In this book, you'll discover:

* The 5-step, simple, safe, and predictable process to change living paycheck-to-paycheck to enjoying wealth and security.

* How to give yourself a $400 per month raise without asking the boss or working a minute of overtime.

* The secret formula of how to completely eliminate your debt in 1/3 the time and save tens of thousands on interest costs in the process.

And more.  Seeing Tristi's financial future changing on the pages of the book was really exciting and inspiring.  She felt empowered in her life to bring about financial security for herself and her family.  The amazing thing is that the authors of the book are offering anyone a free copy of the book (there is a $5.95 shipping charge) so that you can experience this empowering change too!  I highly recommend that you get your free copy and read it and then take action immediately!  I really do.  This offer for the free book is only good through June 15th, though, so act on it, and tell your friends!

You can go to the website to take advantage of that amazing offer:

If you're reading this after June 15th, then you can buy a copy here.

This, my friends, is way cool.

I just found your blog and don't usually comment but when I read the you didn't have much time to read "non-textbook" books, I thought, "hmmm... that sounds familiar!" I, too, took the plunge and went to nursing school in my 30's (just graduated in 2010). It was the best decision I ever made (aside from marrying my husband). I wish you all the best in school and in your new career. Nurses rock!
