Written specifically for women, $0 to Rich aims to be a girl's personal financial coach, guiding readers towards achieving their own financial goals by following five easy steps. Readers will learn how to define what 'rich' means to them and articulate exactly what they want.

The book then explains how to set and achieve these financial goals over a defined time period. This practical, interactive book covers how to create and follow a no-fuss budget; easy savings tips to fast track your financial milestones; savings and investment options to help you grow your money faster and reach your goals sooner.

      Comments about $0 To Rich:

      This book was easy to read and understand, and had lots of helpful advice. The breakdown of stock market speculation was especially helpful and interesting. Unfortunately, it doesn't come with a device which gives you a mild electric shock every time you open your purse, so I am still broke...

        Comments about $0 To Rich:

        I read this book when it was first published and it definitely changed my life. At the time I moved from a small town to Sydney and soon found myself in debt of a few thousand dollars. I'd been trying to sort this debt on my own for over a year with no luck when I stumbled across this book. It gives easy to follow guidelines that meant I was soon living debt free. Years later I still return to this book when I've become a little sloppy with the budget and need to rein things in again.
