Summary

Ebenezer Scrooge would seem an unlikely source from which to glean financial wisdom. However, Dickens' classic tale of how Scrooge left behind his miserly ways and transformed into a joyful, compassionate, and generous man is a powerful model we all can benefit from today.

Unlike other financial planning books that focus narrowly on the "dollars and cents" of money, The Financial Wisdom of Ebenezer Scrooge is an easy listen. Written for the layperson, this book provides advice that is simple, transformational, and timeless. Through the process they've used successfully with their clients, the authors will show you how to recognize ways unconscious Money Scripts may keep you trapped; how to deal with the relationship between your net worth and your self-worth; how to discover your authentic goals and values; how to permanently change self-destructive money behaviors; and, through five principles of financial prosperity, how to leave a family legacy of financial wellness.

financial therapy

This book shifted my way of thinking about beliefs and money. The narrator did a decent job making audible the visual layout of such a book. Exercises really need to be in print for me.
