Are you ready to fill your life with more peace, power, and joy?
We Should All Be Millionaires details a realistic, achievable, step-by-step path to creating the support, confidence, and plan you need to own your success and become the millionaire the world needs you to be.
Only 10 percent of the world’s millionaires are women, making it difficult for women to wield the economic power that will create lasting equality. Whatever is stopping you from having seven figures in the bank—whether it’s shaky confidence, knowledge gaps when it comes to wealth building tactics, imposter syndrome, a janky mindset about money (it’s okay, we’ve all been there!), or simply not knowing where to begin—this book shows you how to clear every obstacle in your way, show up, and glow up.
We Should All Be Millionaires will forever change the way you think about money and your ability to earn it.
In this book, Rachel Rodgers— a Black woman, mother of four, attorney, business owner, and self-made millionaire— shares the lessons she’s learned both in her own journey to wealth and in coaching hundreds of women through their own journeys to seven figures.
Inside, you’ll learn:Why earning more money is not “selfish” or “greedy” but in fact, a revolutionary act that brings the economy into balance and creates a better world for all.Why most of the financial advice you’ve heard in the past (like “skip your daily latte to save money”) is absolute, patriarchal nonsense.An eye-opening history lesson on how women and people of color have been shut out of the ability to build wealth for centuries—and how we can fix this.How to stop making broke-ass decisions that leave you feeling emotionally and financially depleted and start making million-dollar decisions instead.Why aiming to earn $100K per year is not enough, and why you need to be setting your goals much higher.Strategies to bring more money in the door and fatten your bank account immediately. (Including Rodgers’$10K in 10 Days Challenge which hundreds of women have completed—with incredible results.)
It’s time to construct an entirely new attitude about money, claim your power, and build the financial security that you need and deserve — so you can stop just surviving, and start thriving. Let’s begin.

If you are looking to boost motivation and self-esteem, that's the book to start off. So many stories and positive vibes that will give you the opportunity to look at your strengths and abilities from a different angel. Believing in yourself makes a massive difference in how we lead our lives.
Women deserve the economic power and equality that comes with wealth, and we all have it in us to be millionaires. We Should All Be Millionaires details a realistic, achievable, step-by-step path to become a millionaire within the next three years. Thank you to NetGalley for allowing me to read this book. I highly recommend reading this book.
This book was received as an ARC from HarperCollins Leadership in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own. I absolutely loved the message this book carried out from beginning to end. We all can be millionaires but we have to work at it and start out struggling in order to learn what it takes to truly value money. I also loved how Rachel broke down in a mindset chart of a "broke ass mind" and a "millionaire mind" and I notice while reading the millionaire side, all of them were positive and optimistic despite what issues are surrounding and no matter what, they will not lose it. EVERYONE should read this book even if they are happy with their lives to not only better themselves but pay it forward and share it with those who are struggling and make the world a better place. I know I will be getting a copy not only for our library but for myself as well. We will consider adding this title to our Self Help collection at our library. That is why we give this book 5 stars.
Author Rodger shows it clearly what holdsback women from being successful and financially independent. She shows how you can change your thinking with positive thoughts.
I was approved for a review copy of this one and started reading it the same day. I’m a huge personal finance nerd, and I am always looking for interesting information/advice about growing personal wealth (I have *lofty* goals of buying an affordable house and retiring one day, haha). This book was not at all what I expected. This book makes some very bold claims. It advertises to each you to “build serious wealth, increase your income significantly within one year, get on the path to becoming a millionaire within three years, and stop getting in your own way.” I would argue that it does achieve its goals, but not in the way I expected. Before diving into how to become a millionaire, Rodgers shares her own story and helps us understand the barriers our own lives and society has placed in our way to building wealth. Women especially are taught to save small and not spend, because we are naturally over spenders. Rodgers calls BS and shows us that we are constantly undervalued and thus undervalue ourselves. Each chapter has hypotheticals or stories of real women and a section that compares “Broke Ass Decisions” and “Million Dollar Decisions,” mindsets, boundaries, etc. There really aren’t any concrete “money” things until about 70-80% through the book, but rather, it’s about educating yourself on this history of financial oppression towards women, black folx, lgbtq+ peeps, and why/how these systems cause us to doubt ourselves. There are concrete steps about thinking about skills/ways to make money, but nothing super specific, as each person is different and will have different things to bring to the table. If you’re looking for a saving and investing book, this ain’t it. This book urges you to make big moves that will pay off in huge ways, not just saving and investing safely until retirement. Personally, that’s not my style, and even though there’s some great motivation in here, I honestly don’t think it’s practical for my situation. However, there are cited cases throughout the book of women in my situation who started making huge amounts of money, so don’t let my personal preferences deter you. Money aside, this is a great motivational book and memoir. It’s really cool to see a black woman succeed and want to empower other people to chase their dreams. It’s not out until May, but Rodgers has a large online presence and support groups, so look her up and see what she’s got to say in case it might work for you.
