    Wonderful Wealth Book and Exciting to Read! It is written in a conversational way like talking to another girl! I was excited to read it and learn the 7 passive incomes that make millionaires (outside of salary)!! Whether you are a woman wanting to learn financials for first time or already knowledgeable in financials – you will learn something new and get great ideas!!

    Nicole Lapin does it again!! *****I have read all of Nicole Lapin’s books and this one is another best seller! She continues to provide invaluable wisdom and advice in only the way she can– with candor, simplicity, and her hilarious stories. If you’re looking to gain financial knowledge and grow your own wealth this book is a must!!! You (and your bank account) will thank me later!

  5. Vanessa Hamilton

    practical and actionableThis is the book that I’ve been looking for. It gives practical and actionable advice not just on how to save money but, to make your money work for you.

  6. Hannah

    Finance that isn’t stuffy!If you’re looking to make passive income this year, this book is a great place to start. As a millennial trying to achieve financial freedom, I felt like Nicole was speaking directly to my soul when she wrote, “You can’t budget and save your way to financial freedom.”Gone are the days of being shamed for avocado toast and $5 lattes. This book is one that focuses on the real way to make money – investing! 10/10 would recommend.

  7. Julie G

    Already read it twiceI’m a healthcare provider with no background or education in finance. Honestly, I always saw money as “evil” so I avoided learning about it, but as an adult I’m realizing how important it is to plan for my future and to enjoy my present! This book makes “being rich” relatable..something I never thought possible 😂. Super empowering and it’s teaching me a lot about how to make my money work for me and how to not burn out by constantly working for my money. Read it a second time so I could take notes! Definitely recommend.

  8. Vaute Couture Attn Leanne

    Finally taught me how to invest! So practical and fun to read Nicole is BRILLIANTNicole is the kind of genius who makes unfun and difficult topics accessible and easy. I have my MBA and I still never figured out how I personally could invest and create financial independence, until reading Nicole’s book. Her other books – Rich Bitch, Boss Bitch, and Becoming Super Woman are all must reads too.She has a way of translating personal finance to make it easy and fun to apply to my life. Her writing is kind, vulnerable, funny and honest. And her overall message is one of self care, truly taking care of yourself so you can contribute more to the world. I’ve put off doing things for myself for so long, they’ve always come last on my list after work and responsibilities to others. But her books make me feel empowered to take care of ME and build a base for myself. Thank you Nicole! The world is so lucky to have you <3

  9. RomComGal

    This book was so helpful!I make decent money but I’ve never really known how to GROW it. I picked this book up hoping for guidance, and really loved how Nicole breaks down the most complicated subjects and helped me create a plan. I feel like I’m on my way.
