    You can live the life you desire by taking control of your finances.

    In this book, Tanja takes readers through her money story from her first summer job at sixteen years old on the island of Barbados earning $200 per week, sharing the finance and non-finance theories that have allowed her to live out loud.

    Written from a developing country perspective, the book delves into those challenges that are unique to them. How to build a budget, pursue debt free living, save money on a large scale and tips on how to create a business and increase your remuneration are a few of the topics covered in detail.

    Most importantly, the book delves into the non-monetary factors that affect or influence a person's financial decisions, including those concealed generational habits. Finally, it looks to the future and goes into details of financial independence and how to plan successfully for the future in uncertain times.

    These money topics are backed up with travel stories as she shows what it means to live a loud, fearless, determined, authentic and intentional life regardless of where you started, or your income bracket.

    No Longer A Prisoner: Born To Win
    Price
    30.00 BBD
    Have you ever wondered why life seems so hard and feels like there is no way out? Have you ever felt trapped in life's circumstances not knowing which way to go? Well look and wonder no more. Your prayers have been answered. This book is basically a pocket book of encouragement of how to withstand challenging times and be an over-comer. The title 'No Longer a Prisoner' derives from many of us being imprisoned by our thoughts or situations be it immediate or past. Life challenges can deceive us into feeling we are stuck in a place called hopelessness. The sub title 'Born to Win' comes out of the belief that all of us are born winners but some of us lose direction along the way and need to find our way back on winner's path. This book really helped me and I believe it can do the same for you. It is a great tool to put you back on track and direct your thoughts to be a winner.
