The 60 Minute Money Workout by Ellie Kay

Written by "America's Family Financial Expert", The 60 Minute Money Workout is a quick and easy read to help get you back on your financial feet for just one hour a week.

Easy to read - difficult to execute.

As with many financial books, you will be encouraged and maybe even excited with Ellie Kay's anecdotes and uplifting stories. Then comes the hard part of you actually sitting down and doing something with your money.

Kay tries to help by breaking the workload down to just an hour. She divides that hour in increments:

5 minute make-up-your-mind warmup. This is when you think of something positive.
10 minute strength training. Here is where you will write down your goals.
20 minute cardio burn. Here is where you write out the steps to reaching your goal.
20 minute check heart rate. Crunch numbers and find the details.
5 minute cool down. Reflection.

There are 14 chapters and you are to do this hour exercise for each chapter. They include:

A spending plan, retirement, debt, paying less, travel fun, allowance, college plan, home-based business, giving, and more.

The tips are practical, the ideas are meant to jump-start your own imagination. Now if we could only get a guarantee that this product will absolutely work.

It's basically up to the reader. This book has the potential to really help you tackle your debt but you have to do the work.

60 minutes isn't that much when you're talking about a week at a time.
