7 Money Rules for Life Review

Take Control of Your Financial Future with 7 Money Rules for Life

Founder of Debt-Proof Living shares how to master your personal finances

 “Mary Hunt has been there and back, and it shows. Hunt’s empathetic, real-world approach makes [her] advice somehow seem more palatable–and achievable.”–Money magazine

Across the country Americans are flunking their finances. Credit-card debt has reached $828 billion, 77 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck and 43 percent have less than $10,000 saved for retirement. An alarming number of Americans have never been taught how to handle their personal finances, and this has led to financial ruin for millions.

Bestselling author and financial columnist Mary Hunt lived through her own financial nightmare, paying off over $100,000 in unsecured credit-card debt. In 7 Money Rules for Life: How to Take Control of Your Financial Future (Hardcover ISBN: 978-0-8007-2112-1, 208 p

ages, January 2012, $17.99), Hunt openly shares her own struggles with an emotional connection to spending that drove her family into financial ruin. Over the past 20 years, Hunt has helped thousands of people get out of debt and live below their means.

“These simple rules,” says Hunt, “cut through the confusion, mystery and misery, enabling readers to get their financial lives on track.” By following her seven rules, readers can fix their financial problems and take control of the future. Hunt provides a solid foundation of financial knowledge and encourages readers to get started on the road to becoming financially secure.

As she successfully paid off her debt, Hunt developed and fine-tuned the seven money rules. These simple, unchanging, basic rules work in every financial situation, for every income level, and for every stage of life:

Rule 1: Spend Less than You Earn

Rule 2: Save for the Future

Rule 3: Give Some Away

Rule 4: Anticipate Your Irregular Expenses

Rule 5: Tell Your Money Where to Go

Rule 6: Manage Your Credit

Rule 7: Borrow Only What You Know You Can Repay

To further encourage her readers, everyone who purchases a copy of 7 Money Rules for Life will receive a free membership to Debt-Proof Living, Hunt’s online community. Members have access to financial tools

and interactive calculators, articles on debt-proofing your life, and even more tips and encouragement for those taking control of their financial freedom.

My Thoughts

This is a Christian based book teaching readers how to manage their finances, giving you seven pretty simple steps. These are steps people can use in their everyday lives to try to cut expenses and try to pay off bills and save money.

Some of the things in this book are new, other are pretty much the same as what I have read in other books, but it is still great ideas to follow when trying to manage your money. This is a good book for any household to have to go through together and to keep as a reference when you need a little extra boost.
