Publisher's Summary

From the number one New York Times best-selling author of You Are a Badass, an in-depth guide to making the kind of money you've only ever dreamed of.

You Are a Badass at Making Money is a refreshingly frank and entertaining step-by-step guide to overcoming the fears and stumbling blocks that have kept financial success out of reach and to giving yourself the permission to make the kind of money you've never made before. Drawing on her own experience of transforming herself - over just a few years - from a woman with tumbleweeds blowing through her bank account, subsisting solely on Taco Bell, to a woman who travels the world and stays in five-star luxury hotels, Jen knows all too well the layers of BS one can get wrapped up in when it comes to money as well as what it takes to dig your way out. You Are a Badass at Making Money goes in depth on how powerful thoughts shape our income potential and the ways in which our bank accounts are mirrors for our bugaboos about money. Written with the same inimitable sass and blunt practicality that made You Are a Badass an indomitable best seller, You Are a Badass at Making Money combines hilarious personal essays with life-changing bite-size concepts that anyone can employ to unlock earning potential and get real results.

Not much new. Some good points.

This is a rehashing of the same wealth making "strategies" that have been around for decades. She has some unique ways to present some of the ideas which are good. The anecdotal stories used are not very helpful such as the power of manifesting money by finding some old stock you've had in a file that is now worth a bundle. It is also a pretty big sales pitch for the coaching industry. Spending huge amounts of money on a coach is great because it makes you really work hard for success, even if you have to borrow that money. It is easy to talk about the ones who make that strategy but I wonder how many go down that road and just end up bankrupt from spending money they don't have.

not worth buying.

No real advice, lacks authenticity. I wouldn't recommend it. I can sum up the whole book with one line : picture it and you will get it. that is all this book talks about.

A bit average

The book was ok. Probably could have been summed up in the less than an hour. I liked it at first for maybe the first 2 hours and then it was kind of down hill. It was a lot of repeating herself which i dunno, maybe is necessary. It’s in line with all the other law of attraction books but her relatability adds a little something more. If you’re dead set on this book, i would consider buying hard copy as there are questions to answer through out and she doesn’t give you time to think about an answer during the audio book.

Amazing book

I loved this book. Thank you for writing it. I just wish there had been more emoticon when reading it to me. I have friends that have heard you speak and you have so much passion but I don’t think that comes through in the audio book. Are you really the one reading it?
Anyway I have money mantras all over the house one the walls and can’t wait for the money to fill my life

Good Book, Falls Short of Expectations

Jen Sincero is an excellent orator and this audiobook has plenty of interesting stories and comedic moments; however, the tenor quickly became one of uplift. Jen's approach is to help you to see the magic within yourself and to inspire you to have the confidence to achieve any of your money related goals. This is fine but the book falls short on really defining wealth and is not as concrete as I would have hoped. The book is far more abstract that I would have liked it to be. In a way, I feel tricked by the book description and title. I expected Suze Orman and ended up with a comical Bob Ross (I.e. Your wealth is your painting and you can paint as many dollar signs as want to in this world because it's your wealth. I believe in you.).

Badass 2.0

While I really enjoyed Jen's first Badass book, this was disappointing in that it provided no new insights or information. There were even anecdotes recycled from the first book. (The little boy on the airplane comes to mind. There were no other stories about someone standing their ground that could've been inserted?)
This new work was also remarkably short on hard, cold facts and figures -- a little incongruous in a book about money. Jen's presentation is engaging, as always, but this read like a second book that was patched together in a hurry at a publisher's request. I can almost hear the agent urging her to strike while the iron is hot...
The takeaways were almost identical to the first Badass book: hire a coach, spend money to increase your skill set, lose your bad habits, make a vision board, meditate, have a money mantra, etc.
Overall, this was a letdown to me as someone familiar with her work. However, it did prove that Jen is a Badass at making money because she got mine.

Just think hard about money, and praise it

Just think hard about money, and praise it. Show your desire, and you'll attract the money. Now I save you one credit. You are welcome.

Do not buy, not really any advice for making money

I'm sure Jen meant well when writing this, but honestly this book wasn't what I thought it would be. To put it nicely it's a book about Jen's confidence in her own money making ability. It reminded me of the episode of Family Guy where Brian writes "Wish it. Want it. Do it." The part that threw me off was when Jen attributes her money making ability to her faith in herself, needing $75,000 for a specific life coach. She has no idea how she'll get all that money... ((Spoiler)) She remembered she had some stocks in a certain tech company, which happened to be worth exactly $75,000. Her big secret to success, her 'make or break' moment, was literally figuring out she already had the money. That being said it's obvious Jen is a talented writer, but this book is not a good book in my opinion.

This book have fundamentally shifted my perception of money

I read this book as a female business owner at 28, currently working on understanding growth strategies (like obtaining/holding on to those dollars) to scale my business sustainably.
I had already read Sincero's previous book, 'You Are A Badass" and was quite familiar with the New Age-y jargon that would be used throughout this book.
Heads up, this does reference the Law of Attraction and spiritual faith quite a bit. While this resonates with a lot of people including myself, there is a chance that it might be offputting to those who don't believe or understand this concept yet. If you're on the fence about the LOA, I would recommend "The Answer" by John Asaraaf. The first few chapters are packed with scientific backing on this which might help in wrapping your head around all of it.

By utilizing the practices found in this book (letting go of deep rooted misconceptions of money, meditating and focusing on the feelings of already having achieved my goals) this book has certainly helped shift my faith in scaling my business and take me back to that "honeymoon phase" where I had no limits on what I could achieve in starting my business.

In short, this book requires faith, a willingness to let go of preconceived notions of money and people who have a lot of it, and a basic understand of how the LOA works.

Not what I thought it was about

I was hoping to actually learn tried techniques in a much more literal way! I misunderstood big time. Or maybe I just didn’t get it.

I would NOT recommend to anyone. :(

Same wisdom, recycled in different way

I’ve read a lot of self-development books, so I found much of the wisdom to be recycled in Jen’s street, real kind of way.

I like her voice- it’s actually kind of sexy so listening was enjoyable. I found a few insights real stick.

What I don’t like: she’s a life coach and touts the necessity of being coached a lot - too much for my taste- in the book.

It’s understandable and is modeling self-promotion to make money, but it was too frequent for my preference.

I prefer to have a multitude of viewing points and look for common threads instead of relying on one persons outlook, which is why I’m a fan of tools of titans since it outlines strategies and view points of many people.

That said, I gained a few key pieces of wisdom that has helped me think of money in a fresh way, appreciate the humanness of myself from Jen’s realness, and gained a greater amount of faith in myself to create habits around money that will make me rich and happy too.

A lot of fluff

Good performance by the author, the only issue being that the book doesn't really say much beyond a basic pep talk about how the reader is good enough and deserves to be rich. Not very actionable but probably enjoyable for one frought with insecurities and self-doubt.

Ummm...

What a waste! Don’t buy it, completely useless. This book summed up in a few words: “You don’t have money because you don’t love it enough.”
