Your Money or Your Life

Join Transition Howard County for a book discussion on the "the best book on money period" according to Grant of Millennial Money (as featured on CNBC Make It), who followed its advice and became a self-made millionaire entrepreneur in only five years. We plan to start the discussion circle in February. If you are interested in participating or would like more information, please email

In an age of great economic uncertainty when everyone is concerned about money and how they spend what they have, Your Money or Your Life is an essential read. Millennial Money's Grant explains: "The premise of it is that you exchange your time for money. And when you start thinking about how many hours of your life it took to save up the money to buy something, you really start thinking twice about your purchases." In Your Money or Your Life, Vicki Robin shows readers how to gain control of their money and begin to make a life, rather than just make a living. With this book, you'll learn how to:

• Get out of debt and develop savings

• Save money through mindfulness and good habits, not strict budgeting

• Declutter your life and live well for less

• Invest your savings and begin creating wealth

• Save the planet while saving money

• And much more!
