Learn to live well - and wisely - on the money you already have! Michelle Singletary knows that every penny counts. She knows that it's not how much you make that matters, but how you make do with what you have. She learned her values from the best financial planner she ever met: her grandmother, Big Mama, who raised Michelle and her four siblings, owned her own home and car, and lived comfortably in retirement, all on a salary that never exceeded $13,000 a year. In this straightforward and accessible program, Michelle brings both hope and humor as she presents her Seven Money Mantras - a refreshingly honest combination of her own financial expertise sprinkled with lessons learned from Big Mama.
