"As a person who is trying to make the most of my hard-earned dollars, I’m always open to learning about new ways to make money.
But when I first started reading Put More Cash in Your Pocket: Turn What You Know into Dough by Loral Langemeier, I was a little put off. Langemeier believes that scrimping and saving is the “opposite of what you need to do to breathe easier.”
Her attitude is not to cut back, but to make more money so that you can have what you want. I was put off by her strong stance, because I think there’s room in our lives for both approaches. I believe when times are tough, it is good to trim back, and it is good to seek out new opportunities for income. I don’t think you have to choose one or the other. After all, I make a small income from this blog, writing about that very idea!
I’m glad that those first few pages didn’t stop me from reading the rest of the book. What I like about this book is that it gets right to the meat of how to put more money in your wallet. Using four different scenarios, Langemeier shows you how you can turn your skills into $500 to $1,000 of new cash every month.
Langemeier knows business and personal finance. She is the author of the national best-seller The Millionaire Maker and two New York Times bestsellers, The Millionaire Maker’s Guide to Wealth Cycle Investing and The Millionaire Maker’s Guide to Creating a Cash Machine for Life. In addition to her sold-out Millionaire Maker events, currently acts as a financial expert on the Dr. Phil Show, mentoring families in financial crisis.
I tend to over-analyze most decisions in my life, and so, if you’re that type of person, Put More Cash in Your Pocket may be just the kick in the seat of the pants that you need. I was able to walk away with a few new ideas of things I could do to make extra money."
