A proven path to building wealth your way while creating the rich life that you deserve.



You deserve to live your dream life…

This is a book about money, but it’s not really about the money. It’s about what becomes possible for you when you understand how to put your money to work to create the life that you want. 

Mastering your finances and learning how to use your money to create that life is a non-negotiable–because let’s be honest: life costs money. 

The good news is that you can create a money plan that you actually enjoy sticking to –one that allows you to build wealth while spending guilt-free on a life that you love today.

In this book, you’ll learn how to…

  • Actually enjoy managing your money and feel completely confident in your ability to manage your financial life for the rest of your life

  • Define what a wealthy life looks like for you and start prioritizing the things that are most important to you in your money plan

  • Navigate the inevitable financial setbacks in life and get back on track with minimal impact on your daily life

  • Start enjoying the money that you’re spending now and identify and prioritize the spending categories that matter most to you

  • Build your money practice, a simple system for managing your finances day-to-day with minimal time and effort

  • Release debt stress once and for all and create a plan to retire your debt on a timeline that’s sustainable

  • Grow your capacity to manage your money well, make good financial decisions, and build wealth on autopilot at any income

about the author

I’m a Yale-law educated finance attorney and wealth expert. After almost a decade in non-profit consumer finance, I started One Big Happy Life, where I’ve taught millions of people just like you how to take control of their money and start building wealth.

But beyond the credentials, I’m also a person with hopes, kids, student loans, a mortgage, and a dream to leave a legacy behind. And yes, I want to enjoy my life too! 

I’ve gone from being a single teen mom living under the poverty line to living the life of my dreams while also creating a multi-million dollar legacy for my children.

I’ve done it. And you can do it too. Let’s go.

hello there!
