I picked up The Smart Money Woman by Arese Ugwu a couple of weeks back and I decided to share with you, I tried to make this summary as short as possible so as not to bore you to death. Enjoy!
Packaging: The book came in a white and pink book jacket with an illustrated girl. The book behind the cover is a hard cover in black, the best ever!
Where to buy: I bought my copy from smart money Africa for N4900 and the delivery was N1300 to Lagos Island.
Background: The book follows the life of Zuri, a Lagos big and her finance journey. There is a hot man somewhere in the book *wink*
First thoughts: I read this book the first time like a novel. It was nice to see that the writer (Arese Ugwu) had included the hot spots in Lagos to her book, bringing all the Characters close to home like people you know. Also there were financial exercises to carry out in book. (You should try them!)
Recommend or nah: Join the movement, not just to read the story but to apply all the exercises to your own life.
Summary of lessons learnt:
- Know your net worth
- Create your career and money goals
- Evaluate the various areas you are prone to spending
- Draw up a budget
- Find areas to cut costs i.e. dining in, reduce aso-ebi etc
- Join a professional association with like-minded people
- Get a mentor
- Believe that everything is possible
- Get a money journal
- Find ways to earn more
