Summary

High school's over. We're no longer the nerd, the athlete, the princess, or the bad boy. Instead, we are the parent, worker, wife, husband, daughter, or son. But we all have things in common - and one of them is money. 

People have always sought financial freedom, but our influences, from our parents to our community, have made our grounding in money anything but helpful. In fact, that grounding might be the thing that is holding us back. The Breakfast Club for 40-Somethings draws upon the five major lessons you need to unlearn about the way you see your life and money to give you the best chance of getting the future you want. 

Written in the form of a novel from the perspective of six unique characters, the book explores how the different financial decisions and behaviours of each character have led to their current situations. Through this entertaining story, this guide presents the invaluable financial and life lessons you need to understand, and to build a solid foundation for your life, no matter your situation. 

If you don't like traditional self-help or finance books, this is for you. The Breakfast Club for 40-Somethings offers a new and entertaining way to change your long-term financial behaviours for the better.

advice was not applicable

Geared towards Australia, so SUPA and other financial plans gave me no insight. Several characters were getting significant help from their parents (really??) and one character was a billionaire. Not relatable to someone making it on her own from foster care (actually, i found it really annoying) So putting aside the financial advice, what about the story arc? rose tinted and tedious. Everyone was "gorgeous". There's none of the true grit and peril that throws all plans out the window. The billionaire's mother gets cancer and he doesn't do anything to get her the best treatment?! He just navel gazed in his self absorbed narcissism. this book wanted to be financial advice wrapped in a story... it was not remotely satisfying on either front. The only thing I could relate to was their age group.
