"The first personal finance book for the 2020s: expensive housing, BNPL, side hustles, negotiating a raise, and much more. Erica Alini is one of Canada's top personal finance pros, and this book shows it." --ROB CARRICK

Wrestle debt to the ground. Figure out whether you should rent or buy. And determine if a side hustle is really worth the hassle.


Get a job, buy a house, spend less than you make, and retire at sixty-five. That's advice for a world that has largely disappeared. Even good jobs today often have no guarantee of stability. Home prices have reached the stratosphere. Meanwhile, student debt drags you down just as you're trying to take off in life.

To survive and thrive in today's reality, you need a whole new personal finance tool kit.

Personal finance reporter Erica Alini blends the big picture with practical advice to give you a deeper understanding of the economic forces that are shaping your financial struggles and how to overcome them.

Packed with concrete tips, Money Like You Mean It covers all the bases: from debt to investing and retirement, plus renting versus buying, and even how to tell whether a side gig is really worth the effort. It's the essential road map you need to make it in the current economy.
