You Are a Badass at Making Money will launch you past the fears and stumbling blocks that have kept financial success beyond your reach. Drawing on her own transformation - over just a few years - from a woman living in a converted garage with tumbleweeds blowing through her bank account to a woman who travels the world in style, Jen Sincero channels the inimitable sass and practicality that made You Are a Badass an indomitable best seller. She combines hilarious personal essays with bite-size, aha concepts that unlock earning potential and get real results.

  • Shape your reality - stop playing victim to circumstance
  • Get as wealthy as you wanna be
     

“This book truly crystallizes the concept that financial abundance is an inside job - in that it all begins with your mindset - and Sincero gets serious (in the funniest ways possible) about helping you identify your particular limiting beliefs surrounding money.” (PopSugar)

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.

Listen to this book

Lots of stuff that we have all heard before... But this author has the ability to put it in such a way that it becomes possible. I will be listening to this book a few times.

Life changing

I find a lot of self help books to be spiritual in an annoying way... but Jen Sincero approaches self help and the spiritual in a way that is so easy and exciting to digest... and she’s HILARIOUS... I’ve listened to both of her books again and again, and they bring me so much hope, excitement, and inspiration to create a bad ass life... it fills my heart with so much light and faith...
I would recommend both “You Are A Badass” and “You Are A Badass At Making Money” if you’re ready to start changing your life!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE HER AND THESE BOOKS!

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.

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.).

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. :(

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.”

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.

Wanted to like it, but pulled down by froo-froo

I feel like Jen has some really good points in this book around personal motivation, the power of mindset, how we unconsciously self-sabotage, etc. Unfortunately it's mixed with so much self-help woo that it's hard to get excited about or really internalize the material, unless you're the kind of person who's already been to Tony Robbins conferences. Each time there's a good metaphor, or a funny joke that makes me get on board, it's followed by some references to "universal intelligence" (basically god, or your spirit animal, or whatever), or to "manifesting money" for yourself. It's also heavily biased toward the kind of person whose dream is to quit their barista job & make a living as a life coach, vs someone with an existing career that pays well and that they enjoy.
