    In this book I have learned that you have to ...

    In this book I have learned that you have to take off the ball and chain that holds your back from being successful in life. You can't be a government parasite, what I mean is don't take handouts or stay in the welfare system forever. Professor Wiggins teaches us to be strong, positive and not to depend on somebody else, open your own business and be your boss.

    For any woman who has ever struggled financially

    I recommend this book for anyone who has ever struggled financially, who has felt discouraged and overwhelmed. Elease Wiggins shares from her heart and her own story, giving practical steps that anyone can take who is determined to have a better life for herself and her children. You will laugh and be joyfully encouraged by this marvelous book. Read it for yourself and then get several copies to pass on to others. Take copies to your church or temple or women's group as a way to support the many women in our society who earn less and struggle in our difficult economy. If there were six stars, I'd give it a 6!

    This may change your life

    After reading this book I immediately felt inspired. A lot things her mantras and idea of "speaking things into existence" reminded me so much of my mother. I think it's an important read, not just for mothers who are trying to gain control of their life, but for anyone seeking motivation. Elsease has been a greater help to me and my situation than she could imagine. I would encourage anyone to read this book, if you're feeling demotivated, you have goals but haven't acted on them, going through a bad relationship ... Etc, this book will help you. I even brought if for my mom. This book will change your life from the moment you open it.

    Its no surprise that this book has a five star rating. It really addresses the courage that it takes to leave behind that secure financial crutch in order to rise to a higher plane. I also like that all the advice is practical and achievable by anyone. Welfare offices should be ordering this book in bulk!

    This book was a real page turner. You don't have to be on welfare or have low self esteem to read this book. The book is motivational, informative and most of all spiritual healing. I am very lucky to have this book in hand because I can always go back to it when I need the help of a motivational read. This book can help guide anyone looking to help a friend, someone they know, or themselves. To improve they're life style either if they're living in poverty, struggling, or are fine but want a fitter future.
