UPDATED: This giveaway is now closed.

Winner is #86 – Samantha R. Congrats!!!

If you are looking for a fabulous gift to give a friend or loved one who is graduating this year, might I suggest this one: Enjoy Your Money! How to Make It, Save It, Invest It and Give It by Steve Miller.

Indeed, a great gift for grads!

Since my Steve is the personal finance expert in our family, he asked if he could read this book and let you know his thoughts.

Enjoy Your Money! is a fantastic financial instructional book. The book captured my attention from cover to cover. I really enjoyed Miller’s clever imagination to draw a parallel from the movie The Breakfast Club. The book takes you on a teaching journey with this group of students who call themselves the Counterculture Club. The one thing they have in common is that their parents were lousy with money. The students learn how to not make the same mistakes their parents made with money. They walk through the steps of making money, saving it, learning the basic principles of investing, and the importance of giving. The book offers many different financial lessons, that come from the heart of a teacher. This is a book I will use with my boys as they grow up!

If you’d like to enter to win a copy of this great personal finance book geared towards today’s teens and young adults, then follow the rules below. I’ve got 1 book to giveaway!

The one thing I have tried to drill into my children’s heads is DO NOT SPEND MORE THAN YOU HAVE!! Credit card debt is SO easy to accumulate and this economy is SO uncertain….
