Meet Zuri. She’s living a fabulous life. Great car, gorgeous apartment, well paid job.

Meet Zuri. Broken down car, an apartment she cant afford, a job she’s about to lose.

What’s a broke girl to do? 
With her best friends Tami (the flighty fashion designer), Lara (the tough oil and gas executive), Adesuwa (the conservative lawyer), and Ladun (the fabulous housewife), Zuri grows a little, learns a lot and navigates her way to making better financial decisions and building wealth.

This book tackles, debt, spending, the consumerist culture of the African middle class, the fear and misconceptions surrounding money and the lack of it, love, friendships, cultural and societal pressures and the roles they play in success. With each chapter comes a Smart Money Lesson, there to help you work your way up the financial ladder.

This is a book to read, reread and read all over again. I love to call it a novel actually.


Book review:

…Ultimately, improving her net worth is more important than upgrading her wardrobe. This mind set helps her reason when she is spending. Buying a designer bag becomes a reward for reaching a long-term financial goal as opposed to buying one just because there’s money in her account. She derives the same amount of joy from investing in assets as she does spending on her lifestyle expenses. She would rather live like a princess forever than live like a queen for a few 

A novel that revolves around a lady — Zuri, who has a bad spending habit.

She spends most of her salary on expensive clothes, bag, etc and later realized she can’t even speak of any asset of her own in the past years in spite of her huge income.

Thanks to her creator, she found a man who’s ready to help her get through the process of finance management.

This book talks in details how your finances can be managed, invested and controlled in different businesses you wish to venture into.



Are you like Zuri in this book who finds it hard to manage income which makes it feel like you’re earning penny even though your income is worth boasting of?

There’s a solution to that, just read through every lines of this book. Find out how bad Zuri and her friends manage their income and compare this to your lifestyle.

It’s readers’ friendly, trust me you will love it.
