Living Beyond Rich

Living Beyond Rich by Jen McDonough is a great handbook for those who are interested in improving their finances or lives.  If you are sick and tired of being broke and are seeking financial freedom, this book is for you. Jen does a great job telling her families story and gives the read a playbook on how to regain control of your families finances even in the face of emergencies. Jen's story was very inspiring as I work on trying to live a balanced life.  I especially liked that she brought it others to share their stories and offer their "Awesome Expert Advice" in some of the final chapters of the book.  Another one of my favorite parts throughout the book "Jenspirations" that she shares a quote or key point.  I read some of it with my wife and she especially appreciated hearing from a woman's perspective.  Jen writes about her experiences as a wife and mother on how her family dealt with losing a job, a family illness and financial problems while working toward financial freedom.

Here is some experts from an interview with Jen McDonough.

What words of advice would you have for others?
I want others to hear our story and see that the impossible CAN be possible...that if we can do it, THEY can do it. I want them to know that there is HOPE even in hopeless situations. I want them to know that success comes from taking intentional action and that it is not weak or shameful to seek out help through mentors, councilors, coaches, etc.

I want them to know that the sacrifices are easier to make when we can see an end in site and that living in fear, embarrassment and shame when it comes to finances is no way to live.

Lastly I want them to know they are NOT alone. MANY people have walked in their shoes before them and many will walk in them after them. There is a choice on how we choose to live and my wish for them is to live the incredible life they are capable of living by taking intentional action.
