You’Re not Broke You’re pre-rich…

Learning from running Vestpod for almost 3 years, I finally wrote a book!

Do you never go out the week before payday?
Do you have less than £1,000 saved?

If any of this sounds all too familiar, it's time to take back control of your bank balance with this money manual.

One out of three millennials today will never be able to buy their own house. Does it have to be like this? You're Not Broke, You're Pre-Rich will tell you that it really doesn't, you can have your avocado on toast and stop renting and start saving too. This handbook will help debunk the financial jargon, break the money taboo and help you to spend, save and earn better. With contributions from industry leaders and FinTech* entrepreneurs, and packed with actionable tips, Emilie Bellet outlines an agenda for understanding your bank balance, making and managing more money, setting goals, and establishing success-oriented routines, with worksheets.
