Bestselling Author Jen Sincero Wants To Teach You How To Be A Badass At Making Money In Her New Book
New York Times bestselling author, success coach, motivational speaker, and all around badass Jen Sincero isn't finished trying to help you live your most awesome life. No, now she's here to help you become a money-making pro with her brand new book, You Are A Badass At Making Money, set to be published by Viking in April 2017.
Let's back up for a minute. You may be familiar with Sincero's first book, You Are A Badass: How To Stop Doubting Your Greatness And Start Living An Awesome Life (we're kind of fans of it here at Bustle). In it, Sincero hilariously details her own "personal journey from Loserville to Awesome City", as her website puts it, offering personal anecdotes and tips to help readers break out of their slump and embark on their own quest to realize their badass potential.
With over half a million copies sold to date, it looks as though a lot of people are clamoring to unleash their inner badasses. Sincero's newest book, You Are A Badass At Making Money , will give the people what they want, focusing on teaching readers how to become badasses in our financial lives.
"It was the logical next book in the series because my transformation around money was the impetus for writing the original Badass," Sincero tells Bustle. "Making money was my personal Loch Ness Monster, it just seemed to elude me all of my life, so I felt that if I, rickety-ass Jen Sincero, could overcome my money issues, I had to show other people that they could do it too."
Sincero definitely knows what it's like to not be that great at the whole money-making thing. In fact, she reveals in her first book that she was broke for much of her life, unable to find a job that paid her well and gave her the satisfaction of knowing that she was utilizing her talents. It wasn't until she began her own journey towards self-improvement that she found a way to succeed in her financial life as well as her personal, professional, and spiritual one. In fact, she realized that a lot of her issues were intertwined.
"We humans aren't that creative when it comes to our issues - the subconscious beliefs holding us back from making money are usually the same issues we have around intimacy, weight loss, feeling clueless, etc.," Sincero says. "The beautiful thing about this is that once you start getting your act together in one area of your life, others start to follow suit because you're ridding yourself of the limiting subconscious beliefs that created all of it."
Sincero's goal for the new book is to help readers discover what in our lives may be standing in the way of us fulfilling our financial potential, whether that's a warped view of money or a fear that we're unable to make the type of money that we want. Once we realize what's holding us back, we can learn how to move past it and finally make the kind of cash we dream about. With a little guidance from Sincero, of course.
The new book isn't scheduled to be released until April 2017 (though you can pre-order it on Amazon or Barnes & Noble), but Sincero was nice enough to give us a tip to get us started on improving our money-making hustle in the meantime: "Make it a priority. We're scared to really focus on making money because it's such a dirty topic, and, you know, anyone who focuses on making money is a bad person, so we often go about it in sort of a passive way," she says. "But if you really want to blast yourself into a new financial reality it has to be full on - study money, work on your wealth consciousness, take risks, call yourself on your BS."
