Reminder: The Billfold Book Club meets Wednesday, June 25

A quick reminder that we’ll be discussing Suze Orman’s The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous, and Broke on Wednesday, June 25.

I’ve been reading this book and have been surprised at how much Suze’s advice applies to “me of a few years ago.” Even to the point of “thou shalt go into debt up to $15,000 when starting a business, but not a penny more; if you can’t make it work after $15K, it’s time to find another career.”

I’m curious if any of Suze’s advice applies to the rest of us. I’m also about halfway through and waiting for her to get to the part where we start EARNING MORE MONEY; the first chunk is all about taking on debt to invest in yourself (whether you’re going to school or starting a business), and I’m reading along and thinking “yup, I’ve got the debt, I’m building the career, now tell me how to earn more money and stop feeling broke all the time!”
