Pock Your Dollars : A Review

This book was very encouraging.  The author shared her inspiring story from being trapped in almost $60,000 in debt to climbing out of the hole and never returning.  This book showed how attitude and how you are raised will effect your view of money.

One thing that Ms. Rocha pointed out was how we interact with our children when it comes to money.  When you are at the store and your child begs for a certain toy what do you say?  If you say we can't afford that and then get it for their birthday a few months later what message did you just send?  Either you can get what you can't afford or this gift is hurting the family's finances.

This book was great at addressing some attitudes such as "I deserve this" and living outside your means as well as "I can't afford this".  I went into this book curious and wary that it would be dry and boring.  I finished the book encouraged, uplifted and ready to tackle our finances...

I was given this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  All thoughts regarding this book are mine alone...
