But fear not -- bestselling authors Sophie Littlefield and Rachael Herron have made all the mistakes so you don't have to! Learn how to face your money fears squarely in this bluntly honest and humor-filled presentation. You'll take away ideas that you'll be able to put into place immediately in order to head toward a brighter financial future.
