9780470496572: The True Cost of Happiness: The Real Story Behind Managing Your Money

Personal money management advice that make sense

In The True Cost of Happiness, financial journalist Stacey Tisdale and expert financial planner Paula Boyer Kennedy combine their extensive financial experience with a powerful series of interviews and real-world stories to help you make personal money management decisions that make more sense.

They begin by discussing how the factors that drive our financial choices and behavior not only run deep, but also represent the way we define ourselves. From there, they reveal how this truth will determine if you can create the kind of financial harmony that not only supports the life you want, but also makes an honest statement of who you really are. The questions they pose are challenging, but essential, because if your financial choices and behavior are not aligned with your true values, you'll always feel like "something" is missing. And it is this disconnect that is at the root of most anxiety and unhappiness over money.

  • Reveals how the first lessons we learn about money as children play out in our adult behavior
  • Discusses how the messages that society sends us about the ways in which we should behave with money affect our financial choices
  • Explores factors that can blind us to our true values, and prevent us from making the best decisions possible on issues such as debt, saving, and investing
  • Illustrates how to create a financial plan that supports a truly happy life

Filled with in-depth insights and practical advice, The True Cost of Happiness will put you in a better position to enjoy a life that doesn't compromise who you are.

From the Inside Flap:

As a financial journalist with many years of experience, Stacey Tisdale has observed people who successfully make lasting changes to their financial lives by first taking an honest look at whether their financial behavior is in sync with their beliefs and ideals. Coauthor Paula Kennedy—an expert in financial planning—has seen similar situations arise while helping her clients examine their beliefs and attitudes about money.

Now, in The True Cost of Happiness, Tisdale and Kennedy combine their extensive financial experience with a powerful series of interviews and real-world stories to help you make personal money management decisions that make more sense.

They begin by discussing how the factors that drive our financial choices and behavior not only run deep, but also represent the way we define ourselves. From there, they reveal how this truth will determine if you can create the kind of financial harmony that not only supports the life you want, but also makes an honest statement of who you really are. The questions they pose are challenging, but essential, because if your financial choices and behavior are not aligned with your true values, you'll always feel like "something" is missing. And it is this disconnect that is at the root of most anxiety and unhappiness over money.

Important issues addressed throughout this engaging book include:

  • How the first lessons we learned about money as children—spoken and unspoken—play out in our adult behavior

  • How messages that society sends us about the ways in which we should behave with money affect our financial choices

  • How very strong influencing factors can blind us to our true values, and prevent us from making the best decisions possible on issues such as debt, saving, and investing

  • How to step away from the pressures that don't serve your highest goals and create a financial plan that supports a life that will make you truly happy

In The True Cost of Happiness, you get the real story behind managing your money from a seasoned reporter who has seen people—from the very well-off to those barely making ends meet—rearrange their finances in order to support fulfilling and joyful lives. You'll also receive timely tips and tools from an expert who has been named one of the best financial advisors in America three times by Worth magazine.

Filled with in-depth insights and practical advice, The True Cost of Happiness will put you in a better position to enjoy a life that doesn't compromise who you are.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for The True Cost of Happiness

"Financial ignorance is NOT bliss, it is a disaster. This book is the ultimate wake-up call to passionately invest in what you love, which is having blissful control over your own destiny!"
—Janet Hanson, founder, 85 Broads, and Chairman, Milestone Capital Mgmt.

"Money is where the 'soft' sciences of psychology and soul meet the hard rubber of reality like paying the bills and planning for the future. Stacey Tisdale and Paula Boyer Kennedy help you better understand your relationship with money and design your money life to serve your deeper dreams, purposes, and goals."
—Vicki Robin, coauthor of Your Money or Your Life and cofounder, Conversation Cafés

"I worked with Stacey Tisdale for years, and had the pleasure of seeing firsthand the skills, commitment, and enthusiasm she embodies that have helped millions of people use their finances to improve their lives. You can literally take the information she and Paula Boyer Kennedy share in this one-of-a-kind book to the bank!"
—Russ Mitchell, CBS News Correspondent/Anchor

"Your attitudes toward money and your life experiences are more closely tied together than you realize. This book tells you how to unravel the knot and benefit from the insights."
— Lyle E. Gramley, Senior Economic Adviser, Stanford Washington Research Group, and former governor of the Federal Reserve Board
