IMG_3121Back in June, I had the good fortune to receive an advance copy of Kate Northrup‘s book Money: A Love Story. I had been looking forward to reading it for a few reasons: It would be approachable, it would take you on a journey, and it would be fun.

I am happy to say all of my expectations were met and exceeded. Kate brings a fresh approach to the topic of financial freedom with her book, by focusing on you: What do you want out of life and how does money fit into that?

During USANA’s 2013 International Convention, Kate and I chatted about the book. Here is what she had to say about how you can benefit from Money: A Love Story:

Freedom For All

In Chapter 3, Kate says “Money is a tool to create choice, the ultimate freedom in our lives.” In fact, throughout Money: A Love Story, you learn how to take control and free yourself to live the life you want. This is a book that everyone can learn from, no matter what the state of your finances, or how comfortable, or uncomfortable, you are talking about money. Through exercises, journaling and some thought-provoking questions, Kate guides you to be fully aware of your financial life.

Kate also shared her message on the TODAY show. Wow!!

    I am with a Law of Attraction group and we have a creed for attracting a better financial situation: “I am in the process of attracting all the resources I need to attract and allow my Financial Situation. That will feel so good! Imagine having income I need, living expenses and more! That is what I am allowing and attracting.
    The Law Of Attraction is organizing and orchestrating everything that needs to happen in my Ideal Financial Situation. Yay to that!

    I align my money decisions with my beliefs. When I accomplish this I have peace knowing it goes to necessities and causes in which I find purpose.

    I manage my earnings and fiances by making sure i allocate 30% first for savings/investments, then the rest i divide it to 10% for tithing, 20% for monthly amortizations, 20% household expenses, and the last 20% for emergency/ contingency/ support funds. And i list my daily expenses to make sure we dont go much beyond our daily budget.

    I am really looking forward to getting my hands on Kate’s new book.
    1 Thing that I am doing to take control of my finances is: Focusing on the money that I am currently bringing into my life and celebrating that instead of focusing on lack and not enough. This has been a great perspective shift as I start seeing that I am capable of drawing money into my life from different sources and it inspires me to create more!
    I recently told my coach that I see money management in my future. I am a Life Coach and something tells me that my relationship with money will help me help others soon. Quite interesting!

    Thanks for the great post!

    Melissa 😉

    As a retiree, I’m finding more time to do all the things I love…writing, watercolor art, astronomy, and community involvement. Through USANA, I plan to fully pursue these passions while helping others, and finances are vital to full life integration.

    The beauty of a USANA business, is that as you help others be proactive with their health and they pass that on to others as well, you all build residual income, which
    in turn can set your finances free. With that money, you are able to give more generously and make a huge impact in the world. Thanks for writing this book Kate!
