Publisher's Summary

The Social’s finance expert connects money and happiness in this fresh, feel-good guide to financial well-being

Everything tells us that what will make us happy can be bought, whether it’s the latest gadgets, renovated kitchens, or luxury goods. But research has shown that having more money in the bank and more stuff around the house doesn’t necessarily correlate with being a happier person. With Happy Go Money, financial expert Melissa Leong cuts through the noise to show you how to get the most delight for your dollar. 

Happy Go Money combines happiness psychology and personal finance and distills it into an indispensable starter guide. Each snappy chapter provides practical, easy-to-understand advice on topics such as spending, budgeting, investing, and mindfulness, while weaving in research, interactive exercises, and relatable anecdotes. Frank, funny, and empowering, this primer challenges everyone to revamp their relationship with their money so they can dial down their worries and supersize their joy.

Dear: Everyone BUY THIS BOOK!

I never would have believed you if you had told me I’d love every word of a book on finances... but if it was this one you would have been right!
Happy Go Money was entertaining, practical, honest and more accessible than I would have thought possible.
Melissa Leong draws you in gently with her humour and authenticity, but packs a punch with her financial knowledge and clarity.
This book was worth every penny and left me feeling as inspired as I was challenged.
Now, I’m off to finally implement a budget and sell my underused instant pot on kijiji (if you want to get that inside joke you’ll need to read the book!)
Highly recommend this read.
