Sam Beckbessinger on her book “Manage Your Money like a F*cking Grownup: The Best Money Advice You Never Got”.

Every week The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviews the author of a business book.

This week he spoke to Sam Beckbessinger, User-experience Designer and cofounder at Phantom Design.

Beckbessinger discussed her book “Manage Your Money like a F*cking Grownup: The Best Money Advice You Never Got”.

Description on Amazon:

We never get an instruction manual about how money works.

We never have to pass a test to get our “Money License” before we can take a new credit card for a drive.

Most of what we learn about money comes from advertising, or from other people who know as little as we do.

No wonder we make such basic mistakes.

No wonder we feel disempowered and scared.

No wonder so many of us just decide to stick our heads in the damn sand and just never deal with it.

Author Sam Beckbessinger wrote this book, because so many of the people she spoke to told her that they wished someone would.

In this clear and engaging basic guide to managing your finances, Beckbessinger covers topics from compound interest and inflation to “Your brain on money”, negotiating a raise and a particularly local South African phenomena like “black tax”.

The book includes exercises and “how-tos”, doesn’t shy away from the psychology of money, and is empowering, humorous and helpful.

The book you wish you’d had at 25, but is never too late to read.

For more detail; listen to the interview in the audio below.
