Praise for It's More Than Money-It's Your Life!

These clubs could absolutely change women's attitudes and relationship to money forever. Whether you're just starting out, or starting over, I guarantee this book is one you'll keep and refer to again and again."

"The power of women in groups supporting one another is stupendous. The new Money Club is a marvelous and important saga of women getting together to master their futures and achieve their individual and collective dreams.
