Kirkus Review: Financial adviser Boisvert offers women a crash course in fiscal literacy paired with a bit of friendly therapy.
The author uses her own experience as an example of how one can increase their wealth through strategy and planning. She divides her book into four simple parts and opens with an account of growing up in a financially precarious single-mom household.
First, she guides readers through discovering how they think about money, offering therapylike worksheets to examine preconceptions about money that readers may have formed as kids. The second section is about growing confidence through budgeting and demolishing excuses. Next, Boisvert encourages women to stay engaged with their income: “Because at the end of the day, it’s your money and the person who will love and care about it the most will always be you.” Along the way, she supplies examples drawn from her own life and those of women she’s helped as a financial adviser. Finally, the book urges women to truly embrace what money means in terms of what they value: traveling, education, early retirement, and so on.
She references the work of self-help authors Brené Brown and Wayne W.Dyer at various points, and although there’s a bit of an affirmational vibe to this book, it’s fully supported by solid monetary guidance and insightful personal advice. Indeed, it’s Boisvert’s affable and compassionate voice that truly makes this book stand out.
She never lectures readers on what they ought to be doing with their money; instead, she comes across as a kind friend offering invaluable counsel. Although her book’s message could have easily been watered down into something aimed at male or female readers, Boisvert admirably remains steadfast in her goal “to support women, to help them overcome their insecurities around money, and to help them believe in themselves and what they were capable of in their financial lives”—and frankly, she nails it.
A first-rate guide for women of any age looking to increase their wealth and feel confident doing so.

I thought this book was wonderful to help women understand finances and money. It also addresses the feelings that may have evolved around money due to personal experiences which I appreciated. I recently started to take control of my own finances after allowing my husband to have all the control for over 12 years.
Thank you so much to #Netgalley and the publishers for an advanced reader's copy for an honest review.
Make Money Your Thing by Kalee Boisvert is a book that I needed to read. As a single woman, I often find myself intimidated by 'money talk', particularly when it comes to investing. What I learned, and my biggest takeaway here, is that I need to advocate for myself, not only in matters of finance, but in all areas of my life.
This is an empowering, easy to understand guide that I would recommend to any woman, regardless of where she finds herself on her financial journey.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Kalee Boisvert for an ARC of this title.
I wasn't expecting to like this, to be honest, I was expecting more of the same. But once I dove in I was pleasantly surprised and actually learned quite a bit.
Ms. Boisvert knows her stuff. She uses her own experiences as examples to show how she managed to create her own wealth.
The book is divided into four parts that are comprehensive and educational. She covers everything from how people think about money to budgeting, managing and taking responsibility for your own money.
I found her easy to read, easy to comprehend and actually put some of her advice to work for myself.
As someone who is financially stable, I still thought this was insightful and helpful. I plan to give it to my friends as I think there is something in here for anyone - whether they are just starting off in life or further along in their financial journey.
Highly recommend this. I look forward to whatever else Ms. Boisvert writes.
A liberating and motivational guide to get in control of your money. Easy to understand with a very clear tone, I loved the way this book was broken down into easy-to-understand and digest sections. It's great to re-assess your view and relationship with money and it's all done in a positive and friendly way. very empowering. Thank you
