Take a peek at the self-taught wisdom of this mother as she speaks to her daughter through her smart, no-nonsense Money Letters.

From the Author:

My motivation for writing this book:

My dad raised six hard-headed kids in a small three-bedroom ranch home, in a small rural town, on a factory laborer's income. But he did it and never complained. He was proud and never asked anybody for anything. Sometimes I hated that because we had little or nothing of our own--no phone, no new clothes, and every Thursday before payday, an empty refrigerator. I truly don't know how he did it, but looking back, I so admire and respect how he lived and showed me how to live--with values, honesty, and pride, regardless of our place in life.

In 1988, when I was a senior at Silver Bluff High School, my dad was diagnosed with cancer, which took its toll in a matter of months. He died at the age of forty-nine. My dad never got to see me graduate from high school, go on to college, start my own family, or write this book.

I used to say that no one helped me with anything when I was paying my own way through college, but while writing this book, I realized, my father helped me the whole time. He helped me by teaching me how to stand on my own two feet and not expect anything from anybody. So I did, without pause, because that's just what I was taught.

Still, I despised the financial deficit we seemed to always be in growing up. I was too young to really understand why money was always so tight, but I vowed not to be in that same place after I became an adult and had my own children. I think that was a big part of the drive behind all the money decisions I've made--getting a college degree, paying off debts quickly, saving aggressively so I would always have something to fall back on, investing my money wisely, and striving just to be a proud member of the middle class.

After doing what I thought was a pretty good job of this (and still trying), I of course, wanted to pass my wisdom on to my daughter. Problem was, she didn't want to listen to anything I had to say once she hit fifteen. Since she wouldn't listen to me, I decided to teach her all my life lessons and advice about money, in writing! Oh, and while doing that, I figured I would share what I had to say to her, with every man, woman, and child that was never taught the basics about money and personal finances, like me. 

Through my writings, I realized that this was my calling and the way in which I shall give back to society. My one-sentence soapbox is: Most people know very little about money, and there is a desperate need for better financial literacy in the United States, starting with high school on through college and beyond.

To stay true to myself, my daughter, and anyone else curious enough to take a moment to read what I have to say, I wrote this book with unyielding frankness. I gathered all my experience, knowledge, successes, and failures with money--coupled with more hours of research and study than it would take you to earn a four-year college degree--in order to give you Money Letters 2 my Daughter.

From the Inside Flap:

In Money Letters 2 my Daughter, mother and author Jackie Cummings Koski shares her self-taught wisdom through a series of letters to her daughter about all things dealing with personal finances. If you feel you have lacked the basics to get your arms around your money issues, this is the book for you. It will help you learn the things that will inspire you to finally trade in your stress and anxiety about money, for knowledge and power.

Much of the book includes things that people have only learned after they've made life-changing mistakes. Only then do they ask the question, why didn't anyone ever tell me that? Well, Mom is telling you now, along with hundreds of other people that are simply seeking some foundational knowledge about money.

Most people did not grow up with positive financial role models in their lives and were never adequately educated about money--not at home, not in school, and not even in college. So here is your "textbook" on money matters that will raise your financial IQ. The help that you will get in this book will give you the power to make better financial decisions.

Take a peek at the self-taught wisdom of this mother as she speaks to her daughter through her smart, no-nonsense Money Letters.
