Rachel's 'Money Honey' really helped spur me on to better savings (I paid off all my student loans, partly in thanks to her kick in the butt). That one was easy.
This one...means business. Don't get me wrong, it's a great book, it might be legit changing my life, but it will make you feel all the things. WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE is one example. WHY CANT I MAKE A MILLION DOLLARS RIGHT NOW, is another example. HOW DO I GO BUY 18 HOUSES IN THE NEXT 12 MINUTES? WHY AM I NOT A CREATIVE GENIUS? That kind of thing. The mood swings are real, at least for me. She makes it sound so easy, I get a bit mad at myself. Jacq, you don't need to go buy 18 houses. You don't need to be a creative genius. You are fully equipped with the tools to make a passive income. So why haven't I BEEN doing this??
But...I'm telling myself this is all a good thing, because you know what? I've started my first passive income stream. (This has been a long-time dream of mine far before this book, but I didn't know what to do). I didn't realize, until reading this, how many options I had. Now it feels like the power is in my hands, which is both scary and daunting and "ohmigod" but also totally freeing and liberating and "I feel such a sense of potential." I hate that this woman had this answer this whole time—that all these people did—and I'm just now catching on. Gah. In a sense, it feels like waking up.
So, in short, buy the damn book. Be prepared for all the feels, and then do something about it.
