9780743269940: Smart and Simple Financial Strategies for Busy People

Are you too busy to pay much attention to your money? Do you worry that maybe you haven't been doing the right things? This book is for you, from Jane Bryant Quinn, the most trusted voice in personal finance today. Her classic bestseller, Making the Most of Your Money, guided a generation toward smart and sensible financial choices. Here she strips away the extras, choosing the best financial ideas and products available today. They're all you need to create a successful and long-lasting financial plan. It's money management the No Worry way.

To start with, she tells you to forget all the complicated stuff the financial industry sells. You don't need it, it costs too much, and some of it is downright bad. It's designed to make the banks, brokers, and insurance companies rich, not you.

The best ideas (a super-short list!) are simple, low in cost, and easy to use. They're also sophisticated and smart. The strategies shown here are followed by some of the most successful planners and money managers around today, yet they're something everyone can understand. They'll give you what you need from your money -- regular savings, financial security, long-term investment growth, personal control, and best of all, peace of mind.

Once you've set up a No Worry plan, you won't have to pay much attention to it. The choices you'll find here are all good ones. All you have to do is arrange for automatic payments and contributions and then get on with the rest of your busy life. You can focus your energies on your job, family, leisure, and friends, secure in the knowledge that your finances are okay.

Here's what you'll do on the No Worry plan:

  • Save more money without feeling pinched

  • Get rid of debt the automatic way

  • Keep yourself safe, with the right amount of insurance at the lowest cost

  • Zero in on the right mortgage, every time

  • Pick the best college savings plan for your kids

  • Understand your finances, in ways you never did before

  • Find the smartest and simplest ways of investing money, to earn superior returns over the long run


The investment ideas alone will open your eyes to the newest strategies for accumulating wealth (without making big mistakes!). Jane Bryant Quinn will change the way you think about money. She has the answers busy people need.

From AudioFile:

Bryant Quinn's slow and gracious voice narrates this traditional lesson on how to manage one's finances. The NEWSWEEK columnist provides an array of numbers, acronyms, and investment products, all designed to help listeners make choices that promote financial health now and in the future. More than just information, she also offers a way of looking at money, and this is where her style works especially well. It's safe to say that the program is aimed less at people who struggle with money than at people who have enough of it to make choices. A wonderful tool, and very easy to hear, for waking up the money manager within you. T.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
