Are you ready to take control of your finances, but find such a big shift intimidating? Start with a pledge to make three small changes.

  • For just one day, do not spend any money on anything.
  • For just one week, do not use a credit card.
  • For just one month, do not eat out at a restaurant.
As you start taking control of your finances, record your thoughts, strategies and questions in this workbook. 

Despite being a best-selling author, Suze says she regularly does these exercises. "Not because I can't afford to do all of that, but because it's a great way to live your life," she says. "You are your wealth. Your money isn't. What you do isn't. How you feel is. That's the pledge—for you to feel wealthy, more than to show other people that you are."
