"A fresh way to think about your money." David Chilton, author of The Wealthy Barber


Stop budgeting. Start living.

Managing your money can be frustrating and confusing. Life is expensive. Whether you make $30,000 or $130,000 a year, it can feel like you’re constantly broke. Can you afford that new car, that vacation, that night out? You think so, but it feels impossible to know. And rigid budgets that force you to spend your money in unrealistic ways (like $9.50 per week for pants) don’t make things any clearer.

But what if there was a new way to manage your money? One that left you certain you had your bases covered—both for your monthly bills and your future retirement—and then let you enjoy your money by spending it. (Yes, really.)

Enter Shannon Lee Simmons, a fresh voice in the world of personal finance, one who understands the new and very real pressures to survive modern life and keep up in the age of social media. Shannon doesn’t lecture, judge or patronize. The founder of the wildly popular New School of Finance, Shannon recognized that most of her thousands of financial planning clients felt broke, no matter what their income. And feeling broke can be as bad as actually being broke, because it leads to overspending and misery. So she came up with a new plan: Worry-Free Money.

Worry-Free Money takes a fresh approach to finances, looking at the root cause of the pressure to spend and showing why traditional budgets don’t work. It is a deeply practical book that will help you break the cycle of guilt, understand why you overspend, banish unhappy spending from your life, learn to recognize your f*ck it moments and find hope—and fun—in getting your money under control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book changed my life! This book is really good! It really helped me see a different point of view in terms of my financial life. I am a teenager who got her first job, first phone bills and other miscellaneous expenses. I was so overwhelmed of the idea of budgeting my income and things like that. So I come crossed this book which has really helped me! It was easy to read, as if the author is really giving you some realistic advice on how to handle your finances. It is not always about the bigger your income is, the more well-off you can be, hence it is about how can you be happy within the income you are earning and being financially free!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent read! I've not actually written a review before, but this book changed that. I think what stands out about Simmons's book is her practical approach to money management and what I perceive to be her infectious personality coming through on the pages! Brilliantly structured chapters kept me hooked, definitely hard to put down. Buy this book!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent read. With personal finance books, I generally give it 6-12 months to properly assign a rating. In the meantime, I found the book to have relevant and practical advice on how to manage your money. In my opinion, Chapter 7 & 8 were the most helpful and I will be applying the template moving forward. What I disliked were the unrealistic scenarios she shared. For example, many of the clients she used as examples had little to no debt such as student loans, lines of credit and the like. I strongly believe it's a misrepresentation of a mass majority of society.
