Book Review | On Your Own Two Feet by Helen Baker

Recently I’ve been indulging in a little ‘me time’ between the demands of work, business, laundry, dinners, school drop-offs and pick-ups, weekend events and kids birthday parties.

One of my favourite ‘me time’ things to do is sit for a moment and soak up a great book. Though I’d love the time to read a totally indulgent novel, most of my reading time is taken up with reading high quality and focused material that will help me to develop further as a writer, mother, wife, parent, business person and all the other hats I’m wearing right now.

Due to my busy lifestyle I tend to read in ‘bite-size’ chunks, which is why I loved ‘On Your Own Two Feet’ by Helen Baker.

This book is an easy-to-digest, pick-up and put-it-down book for all women and busy mums like me, who need to know everything about gaining control of their finances and fast.

On Your Own Two Feet helps women in various situations take control financially with the premise (by Kim Kiyosaki) that ‘a man is not a financial plan.’

The book is for all women including women who are:

  • Divorced
  • Separated
  • Widowed
  • Single
  • Newly single
  • Married
  • Preparing for Aged Care
  • Facebook
  • Twitter

I would highly recommend this book to all women, whether you purchase it for yourself as a quick handbook and reference guide as you move through life or even as a gift for a mother, sister or friend.

I consider this book ‘a must-have insurance plan for women’ at the fraction of the cost of what the alternatives could be for women who might be unprepared for life events.
