Pocket Your Dollars

by Carrie Rocha


Price: £8.99
Publisher:Baker Books imprint of Baker Pub. from Lion
Published:28 February 2013
Vision and focus lie at the heart of a life well spent. This is a pacey, culturally American, resource guide to living wisely and well within our means. At the heart of this new title from Carrie Rocha is the foundational matter of attitude.

There are challenging and needed alignments invited here of the reader. There is theory but lots of practice including the truth of many times when things didn't quite work out. There's layers of usefulness and many great ideas that people can do. The content and communication translate very well.

My hinge moment with this book was the attitude "if I only had more money". Rocha debunks the future notion of lottery or free-flowing monies in our bank accounts, rooting it all in attitude.

At the heart is the thesis that you can do all the right things, but if your underlying thinking is wrong, you won't do the right things for long. Attitude is key: the struggles, explanations and solutions offered are full of life.
