Overview

"Does your heart race when your credit card bill arrives? Are you one flat tire or one emergency room visit away from financial ruin? If you think a secure financial future is out of reach, you're wrong. Let Marianna Olszewski teach you how to love your money instead of running scared from it." "Marianna didn't start out rich, happy, and fabulous. Strapped-for-cash beginnings motivated her to strive for abundance and financial independence - goals she exceeded by age thirty as the founder of a multimillion-dollar business and one of the most respected women on Wall Street." "Now Marianna reveals the lessons she learned on her own road to success and the savvy strategies of other amazing women. She shows how to let go of stress, break your bad money habits, take control of your finances, and finally achieve your goals and a happier, richer life." Live It, Love It, Earn It is full of true stories of ordinary women who have overcome tough challenges, such as climbing the corporate ladder, getting out of debt, and changing jobs midcareer, to get the life they want. Marianna also shares insights from other successful women like designer Diane von Furstenberg; shoe mogul Tamara Mellon (of Jimmy Choo); fashion entrepreneur Tory Burch; the first woman to hold a seat on the New York Stock Exchange, Muriel Seibert; and Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Broker and life coach Olszewski tackles money woes in this fluffy “success GPS” for women who want to take control of their finances. She stresses the importance of financial literacy and champions famous and ordinary women who expertly handle their money. Fine ideals all, but Olszewski's advice ranges from the obvious to the downright infantilizing—it's one thing to instruct women to claim their power, but a book purporting to be a financial guide surely should not include such advice as “take a bubble bath” or “wear a flower in your hair.” Though her tone is admirably positive and her emphasis on visualization and similar techniques may appeal to the dilettante, this spacey attempt won't be taken seriously by anyone attempting to take control of her financial life. (Jan.)

    Do yourself a favor: READ THIS BOOK!

    I have read many self help money books and I can honestly say that this one ranks at the top. It is an excellent guide for women who are struggling with their money...not to struggle anymore! I am inspired by the rags to riches story- it really touched me. I have recommended this book to my friends and all the women I know.

    Easy way to get started

    This book is an easy and fun read and provided me with many good tips on how to get my finances in order. It is not an investment guide but it made me get my money /bills/spending under control-I feel like I now have a long term plan to success. It's like getting advice from your knowledgeable friend -not too pushy or condescending but inspiring enough for you to want to follow her advice. Good luck!!

    Love love love this book!

    Fabulous read! Loved it! As a recent college grad, on her own financially for the first time, and feeling a little lost about life and money, this book truly empowered me. Her story is relatable and inspiring, her tips and advice are easy and manageable, and most importantly they put a cute and fun spin on a topic that most people really just want to turn their backs on. What is great about this book especially though is that it teaches and encourages you to find a happy balance in your life...to take care of your body and health, and be good to yourself. And that once you find that balance, then the rest will fall into place. I feel much better about my life and my money after this read and I definitely recommend it!!

    Most entertaining and informative finance book I've read to date!

    The anonymous reviewer obviously did not read Live it Love it Earn it. How unfortunate! What a great book. I devoured the book as soon as I got it, since my New Year's resolution is to make more money. The author has a very clear sense of purpose in this book, which she expertly conveys to the reader. I like the way she combines the basics (clean up credit, balance checkbook, save for an emergency) with stories of well known and successful woman and empowering and specific advice about how to move beyond simply balancing your budget but creating wealth and starting a business. The author is an up from the bootstraps gal, which I find inspiring. There's nothing worse than a finance book written by someone who inherited their money. And, like I said, it's an energetic, fun read. If a finance book could be a page turner, this would be it!

    Save your money.

    Unfortunately, I think the book is pedantic.
    It seems to be written for a fourth grader and provides little guidance that goes
    beyond common logic.
    I would stick with books by Suzy Orman. She really knows her stuff.

    Fun, Useful, Read

    I gave up reading most financial women's books because they are to drab. I think they mostly focus on saving, not earning. What I thought was so cleaver about LIVE IT, LOVE IT, EARN IT was that Marianna Olszweski's has the knack of blending sound financial advice while making it fun.

    She fills it with exercises about getting out of debt, how to get promoted and learn how to be proud to want and earn money. For myself, like so many other women I know, increasing my earning potential was never emphasized growing up. Marianna's teaches her readers there is nothing wrong with seeking more mullah!
