Jen Sincero is an American/Italian woman who always had greatness inside of her. Sincero had been a blog writer for quite some time, and she wondered how she could possibly make more money in her field. If you’re in that situation and wondering the same thing you might read the book How To Blog For Profit.
Sincero lived her life from one near miss to the next, but in her mind that was just the way that life went. Sincero had plenty of friends and a loving family, but she felt like she could never find the financial freedom that she desired.
Sincero had a mindset that making too much money was not right and materialistic, so she spent a large amount of her life broke and barely scraping by. She takes the reader through a series of “aha” moments as she realized that her mindset about money was holding her back from being rich. For more on this add the book Rich Dad Poor Dad to your list.
Many people think that being poor is tantamount to being humble and respectable. Those same people believe that money is the root of all evil, and that all rich people are bad and greedy. In this book, Sincero breaks down the fallacy in that mindset, and she sets out to challenge this mindset with facts and experience.
The reader is challenged to live life through a new set of ideals and aspirations. At one point in her life, Sincero was desperate to live in a nice garage by the beach. In her mind, it was the apartment of her dreams. She gets to the point where she realizes that she should want and expect more for herself and her life, and that an abundant mindset would be the only way that she could quit living in the rat race and make the money that she deserved. This is a key philosophy that Napoleon Hill writes about in his infamous book Think & Grow Rich.
Sincero goes down a path of self discovery and self realization, when she begins to work closely with life coaches. Apart from going to life coaches, Sincero also goes to seminars in order to get inspired. The co-founder of Pixar, Ed Catmull, stresses the importance of mentorship from George Lucas in his book Creativity, Inc.
As Sincero begins to find her voice, she comes to the realization that there are patterns that are holding her back. These patterns include not reaching out for riches and doubting herself. Sincero helps readers to learn a new way to talk to themselves through the words and beliefs that she personally uses to change the way that she sees money.
You Are A Badass At Making Money shows the reader that financial abundance is an inside job. At one point in her life, Jen Sincero was in agony about getting her dream car. When she changed the script that she had in her mind, she was able to drive off of the lot with the car that she wanted, and it was paid off sooner than she could have ever imagined. Motivation is a fickle thing, but Daniel Pink does an amazing job of defining some of the most important characteristics of it in his book DRIVE.
In this book of self realization, Sincero is able to teach her readers how she went from being a broke blogger to becoming a best-selling author. Sincero’s raw accounts of her self-limiting beliefs helps her readers to come to the realization that they are more powerful than they could have ever believed.
