    My review:

    First, let me start off by saying we have an interesting, but all too common, situation in our family.  My husband and I have both been married before, and like many divorces, we were left with far too much debt, and very few "things."  But we're okay with that.  After all, things are just things.  We both know someday we'll be able to buy more things and that things don't make you happy anyway, but neither does debt.  

    Million Dollar Diva addresses the ever-growing epidemic of personal debt.  It teaches a unique method for paying down your debt and saving money for your future.  I'm a numbers kind of gal, so I appreciated the calculations and scenarios presented showing how investing in yourself can pay big dividends in the future!

    The format of the book was a refreshing change from other books I've read about personal finances.  It was a very down-to-earth look at how women and families can change their lives and tackle their personal financial situation.  I really admire Tristi Pinkston for being brave enough to share her own story.  It helps to know that others are out there struggling with the same things I am, and asking the same questions.  That was my favorite part of the book.  Tristi asks all the questions that come to my mind when I'm thinking about the reality of my finances and getting out of debt.

    I highly recommend this book.  Be sure to check out the Million Dollar Diva website.  There are lots of great resources there, so take a look around, and order the free book while you're at it!  You'll be glad you did!
