The Feminist Financial Handbook

A Modern Woman's Guide to a Wealthy Life (Feminism Book, for Readers of Hood Feminism or The Financial Diet)

By Brynne Conroy

#1 New Release in Volunteer Work and Poverty — Your Guide to Wealth and Success

Live your wealthiest life: Sometimes the best way to stick it to the man is by doing well for yourself. There’s just one problem: it’s hard to do well for yourself when systemic oppression has placed innumerable hurdles between you and your aspirations. The Feminist Financial Handbook provides real motivation and resources for real women who may be struggling—not only those who have already accumulated wealth.

Overcome obstacles: The Feminist Financial Handbook provides actionable tips for women in business for overcoming these obstacles as they try to master money management and their lives. Because women’s experiences don’t exist in a vacuum relegated to their gender, the handbook explores financial issues with anecdotes and perspectives of women of different races, sexual orientations and abilities.

Find the answers to your money questions: Learn more about general financial planning principles, like saving or earning a higher income, and delve into issues that disproportionately affect women, like the wage gap or the long road to economic recovery after experiencing domestic violence.  The Feminist Financial Handbook has stories and advice from women who have been there, worked through the struggle, and achieved personal success.

Learn from the frontrunner of the Femme Frugality blog: Written in the same passionate tone that has made Femme Frugality a two-time nominee for Best Women’s Finance Blog, The Feminist Financial Handbook acknowledges the financial struggles and oppression modern women face while providing actionable steps to live your wealthiest life and achieve personal success.

The Feminist Financial Handbook presents a feminist view on finances relevant to a post-recession economy. This book will walk you through how to:

  • Decide what wealth and success means for you
  • Earn more and negotiate effectively
  • Master manageable money-saving methods

Strikingly Different Selling

By

Superior Sales Success

You are competing with the top salespeople in your industry for the same customers. For each sales opportunity there is only one winner. What separates a “winner” from the rest of the very best and makes them “strikingly different”? Six years of intensely focused research involving nearly 3,000 sales professionals from 135 countries reveals the 3 distinguishing habits that differentiate top sales performers from the herd. Now you can learn what it takes to be that one winner.

In sales, what is it that really works and sustains high performance? In their book Strikingly Different, Dale Merrill and Scott Savage (senior sales performance consultants for FranklinCovey’s Helping Clients Succeed™, Strikingly Different™ High-Performance Lab for Client-Facing Professionals) reveal the secrets to high performance sales success.

The 3 Exceptional Practices. Merrill and Savage found that most consultants and sales professionals believed they were doing a great job in their client interactions. Yet, some 85 percent of client senior executives felt most of their meetings with sales professionals were a waste of time. To Merrill and Savage, this was a major surprise. But, for the “Strikingly Different” sales professionals, there were three things they did consistently differently and better than their peers that radically changed their client interactions and results.

In Strikingly Different: The 3 Exceptional Practices of the World’s Top Sales Performers, learn the details behind the three secrets to sales performance success:

  • Differentiate: Clients only buy differences they can see
  • Advocate: Clients act when the message comes alive
  • Accelerate: Clients that decide faster win sooner

If you have found books such as How I Raised Myself from Failure to Success in SellingThe Secrets of Closing the SaleTo Sell is Human, or Let’s Get Real or Let’s Not Play to be useful; then you will love and learn from Strikingly Different.

Love From the Inside Out

By

Reach Your Self-love Relationship Goals

Celebrity love coach and positive psychology expert Robert Mack has helped millions of people transform their love lives on and off television. In his most recent release, he shares a creative new outlook on the meaning of true love.

A distillation of penetrating self-help statements on how to love. In his characteristic humor and wit, Mack explores the frustration and futility of seeking love from others, instead of yourself—and in the future, instead of in the present. With intimacy and warmth, each expression, aphorism, and instruction in Love from the Inside Out shares a personal and professional inquiry on love and on the relationship with love that has been taught.

Burn away antiquated and attached relationship goals conditioning. Love from the Inside Out combines the no-nonsense style of Dr. Laura Schlessinger books with the transformative insight of marriage counseling books and relationship books. Inside, Mack challenges our most fundamental understanding of love and how to love by interlacing Christian mysticism, Buddhist principles, Hindu breathing exercises, and positive thinking in psychology practices. Using the quick tips, tricks, and teachings in this book, you will question the nonconstructive beliefs of typical self-help books and relationship books for women and finally create a healthy relationship with love.

In Love from the Inside Out, find answers to questions such as:

  • How can I overcome the psychology of being alone and learn how to love myself first?
  • How can I keep my relationship goals sexy, fresh, and alive?
  • How can I create healthy relationships without being overly attached?

Love from the Inside Out is a wonderful addition to any shelf of psychology books, books on marriage and relationships, celebrity books, or self-help books. If you enjoyed Relationship Goals by Michael Todd or Single, Dating, Engaged, Married by Ben Stuart, you’ll love this encouraging book!
