Overview


     Having a good relationship with money is tough—whether you have millions in the bank or just a few bucks to your name. Why? Because just like any other relationship, your life with money has its ups and downs, its twists and turns, its breakups and makeups. And just like other relationships, living happily with money really comes down to love—which is why love is the basis of money maven Kate Northrup’s book.
     After taking the Money Love Quiz to see where on the spectrum your relationship with money stands—somewhere between “on the outs” and “it’s true love!”—Northrup takes you on a rollicking ride to a better understanding of yourself and your money. Step-by-step exercises that address both the emotional and practical aspects of your financial life help you figure out your personal perceptions of money and wealth and how to change them for the better. You’ll learn about thought patterns that may be holding you back from earning what you’re worth or saving what you can. You’ll learn how to chart your current financial life and create a plan to get you to where you want to be—whether that’s earning enough to live in a penthouse in Manhattan or a cabin in the Rockies.
     Using client stories and her own saga of moving from $20,000 of debt to complete financial freedom by the age of 28, Northrup acts as a guide in your quest for personal financial freedom. She’ll teach you how to shift your beliefs about money, create a budget, spend in line with your values, get out of debt, and so much more. In short, she’ll teach you to love your money, so you can love your life.

Chris Guillebeau, New York Times best-selling author of The $100 Startup
“This is the first book about finances (and life!) that I can actually relate to. Refreshingly candid, uplifting, and practical, Money: A Love Story addresses what holds us back from healing and thriving both personally and financially. I wish I had this book long ago. I can only imagine how much grief I would have spared myself. But as Kate reminds us, it’s all part of the spiritual journey to freedom and abundance. Thank you, brilliant Kate Northrup. I am deeply in love with the road map you’ve given us all.”
Kris Carr, New York Times best-selling author of Crazy Sexy Kitchen
“You may know that a healthy relationship with money is essential to attracting abundance and generating financial freedom. What you may not know is that a healthy relationship with your finances is also medicine for a healthy body. With her signature flourish, Kate Northrup teaches us to quit waiting for Prince Charming, take responsibility for our financial well-being, create success on our own terms, lean into feeling-based financial planning, and take actions toward generating revenue without trading hours for dollars. Money: A Love Story is just what the doctor ordered for your body, your soul, your business, and your pocketbook.”
Lissa Rankin, M.D., New York Times best-selling author of Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof That You Can Heal Yourself

Tara Stiles, best-selling author of Yoga Cures and Slim Calm Sexy Yoga, and founder of Strala Yoga
“If I had this kind of freedom-focused guidance when I first got going, I'd have saved myself a lot of suffering . . . and a lot more cash. Kate's take on money is grounded, fresh, and womanly wise.”
Danielle LaPorte, creator of The Desire Map and The Fire Starter Sessions
“If you’ve got issues with money—especially if you’ve been avoiding them—you’re going to love Money: A Love Story. Kate not only takes you by the hand, but she puts her arm around you reassuringly, removing any shame or guilt you may feel, gently guiding you through the fog with powerful exercises, inspiring stories, and kick-ass advice . . . until, before you know it, you’re financially free, personally empowered, and having a love affair with your money and your life. Her own story is a personal testimony to the power of this work.”
— Barbara Stanny, author of Prince Charming Isn’t Coming, Overcoming Underearning, and Secrets of Six-Figure Women
“With her trademark authenticity and wit, Kate Northrup shows you how to enrich your life on every level in Money: A Love Story. Reading this gem of a book is an excellent investment of your time. As you turn the pages your shoulders will drop back into place and the quiet but agonizing stress that money can so often create in a life will fall away as you open up to an entirely new way of relating to your finances. You’ll learn the power of what Kate so aptly calls ‘feeling-based financial planning’ to create lasting financial wellness. You will never think about money the same way again, because you will create your own financial love story.”
— Manisha Thakor, CEO and founder of MoneyZen Wealth Management
Money: A Love Story is about telling the truth. It’s about daring to be courageous enough to just love ourselves where we are—for richer or poorer and without judgment or shame. This book allows us to define what wealth means to us in our own lives and to know our worth no matter what our current circumstances. There is a transformation waiting for all of us in these pages. Kate Northrup offers the financial and emotional wisdom to guide us from a place of lack to a place of abundance with blazing love, raw honesty, and the riveting clarity she has acquired from her own pilgrimage to financial freedom.”
— Meggan Watterson, author of Reveal: A Sacred Manual for Getting Spiritually Naked
Money: A Love Story shows us convincingly that money isn’t all about numbers and impersonal charts—it’s also deeply emotional, and personal. Kate’s section on over-giving to exhaustion vs. giving more value sustainably is worth the price of admission alone, and that is just the beginning. Profound, subtle, and fresh thinking on a topic, which should be as dear to our hearts as it is close to our pockets.”
Michael Ellsberg, author of The Education of Millionaires: Everything You Won't Learn in College About How to Be Successful
“Kate is presenting us with an intelligent and fun strategy that will bring more abundance and love into the world . . . embrace it and pass it on.”
Colleen Saidman Yee, yoga teacher and owner of Yoga Shanti
“Finally, a book to place money and finances in their proper perspective. This is not in praise of or to demonize money but to let it be the tool for supporting the joy of living, a truly modern and yogic view of where the puzzle piece of finance fits with the soul.”
Rodney Yee, yoga teacher
Money: A Love Story is a beautiful and insightful guide to finding true prosperity from the inside out.”
Marie Forleo, entrepreneur, MarieForleo.com
“Kate Northrup has written a seminal book on money. Building on the past body of knowledge around consciousness and money, Kate has taken the conversation to a whole new level. Having worked with thousands of people around their relationship to money, I know how disempowered most people are and how much suffering is caused by unexamined beliefs in this area of life. I intend to recommend this book not only to all my students, but also to anyone who has not yet found the relationship they want with money. Beware! This practical and powerful book will change your life.”
Gail Straub, author and co-founder of the Empowerment Institute
“As an entrepreneur I have had my own very personal journey with money. As someone who works with business owners I watch 99% of my clients struggle with the subconscious relationship that they have with their finances. What I love about Kate’s book is that it takes the fear of talking about money away. In an extremely simple and real way you evaluate your relationship, fears, and desires as they relate to money and actually make a plan to be living in the financial reality that you want for life. Love that!”
— Carissa Reiniger, CEO and founder of Silver Lining Ltd.
Money: A Love Story gets right to the core of what money is all about: worth. And even more specifically, self-worth. Read this book and learn to not only be smarter about money and have a more loving relationship with it, but also to have a more loving relationship with yourself.”

    Money¿a love story? Why the hell not? I don¿t know about you, bu

    Money…a love story? Why the hell not?
    I don’t know about you, but I am tired of people of treating the subject of money like a trip to the dentist. Money doesn’t have to be a pain in the ass. It doesn’t have to be something you hate…why should it be? It’s what gets you food, clothes, electricity, DVD’s so you don’t have to watch commercials…but it also doesn’t have to run your life. It doesn’t have to be the top dog of the world, of your world, if you change your mind about it. It’s not as scary as we’ve been led to believe.
    I had the honor of seeing Kate Northrup at an I Can Do It Conference in D.C. She has such a presence and such an amazing story. I grew up hating credit cards, because I have always been perfectly aware of the debt that came along with them. I never wanted one. Ever. But, what drove that declaration?
    We are afraid of what money…that rush you get from swiping that credit card (Confessions of a Shopaholic, anyone? great movie). We want to deprive ourselves, because feeling good must be wrong.
    Sigh. Groan. Grumble. Growl.
    It does not have to be that way and Kate Northrup is leading a whole new revolution. We can look at our wallets with love from now on, even if we only have 20 bucks in it.
    Take a quiz to see how good at finances you are. Figure out a better, more loving financial plan. Have what you want instead of having it all. Ask yourself, “What do I truly want?” Are you buying that…or are you buying more because you want others to like you or see you as someone your not? You see what I mean…Kate Northrup talks all about this, because she went through it all herself. This love story surrounding money comes from Kate’s personal story. She got in debt and had to figure a lot of things out…not just the pile of bills she had tucked away for fear of even looking at them, but the problem at it’s core.
    Even if you don’t have problems with money or credit cards, this book is something you need to read. You’ll never think about money the same way again. This book doesn’t just change your wallet, it changes how you look and feel about yourself.
    So get ready to love yourself :)

    I just finished reading this wonderful book. I have always had kind of a roller coaster relationship with money. Now that I have read this book I have learned more about what my issue with money was and how to change it. As a believer in the law of attraction, I think that our relationship with money can be whatever we see it as being. But this book goes farther than that. Kate walks you through detailed steps to have a loving relationship with money, whether you are rich or poor.
    If you want a renewed love of money, and relief from financial stress, I highly recommend this book.
    *In an effort towards full disclosure, I must let you know that I received this book free from Hay House for review purposes.
