winning with money book coverReviewed by Richard Wisniewski

Money can be an extremely sensitive topic for people. This can be partly attributed to the negative connotation of money due to social conditioning. Now, in many cases, those who attribute a negative connotation towards money often lack one of the most vital tools in the world to ‘Win with Money’: a budget. This message is at the core of Aaron Coleman’s book, Winning with Money: Simplify Your Financial Life.

Coleman puts forth that there are dozens of different budgetary techniques in the world and, for many people, they often haven’t found one that works. In fact, many people often complain that they are living paycheck to paycheck or finding themselves struggling with debt. Through a proper monetary budgeting plan, one can easily take control of their life and begin to see the numbers rise instead of fall.

In my opinion, with a degree in Economics, this book is clearly for the individual who does not know the basics of budgeting or is maybe seeking to exploring financial planning. So, if you a financial guru or understand the more complex concepts of financial planning and investments, skip this book. With that being said, I can truly say that this book is one of the best reads for anyone seeking to learn the basics of financial planning and budgeting. The Winning with Money theory or budget plan is quite simple yet can be transformative for anyone who uses it. It’s so simple and plainly put that anyone, regardless of age or experience, can employ it and, if done properly, begin to see results in their life.

One of my favorite aspects of this book is towards the end of the book where Coleman dives into different areas of financial planning that are often not talked about in budgets: healthcare, emergency funds, and investments. I feel that what Coleman accomplished was bringing a level of knowledge and awareness to a topic often muddled with distortions or incomprehensible vocabulary and terms. For anyone seeking to learn a budget plan that will work if employed properly or for anyone seeking to learn more about the basics of budgeting, financing and investments, this book is essential. On top of this all, Coleman guides the reader to answer questions at the end of each chapter that pertain to the material recently presented. This provides for such a unique experience because if the reader follows the instructions and answers the questions, they will learn so much about their money habits and resistances.

Many people in the world are seeking financial security and freedom but often don’t take the steps necessary to achieve these goals. They ask for financial freedom yet they spend their entire paycheck paying off credit cards or buying new clothes. The time is now to take control of your life, your finances, your money and begin to live the life you have always dreamed of. Financial security and freedom are not mythical concepts–they are real and they start with you! How do you begin? Read Winning with Money to begin winning with money.
