Learn to live well - and wisely - on the money you already have!
Michelle Singletary knows that every penny counts. She knows that it's not how much you make that matters, but how you make do with what you have. She learned her values from the best financial planner she ever met: her grandmother, Big Mama, who raised Michelle and her four siblings, owned her own home and car, and lived comfortably in retirement, all on a salary that never exceeded $13,000 a year.
In this straightforward and accessible program, Michelle brings both hope and humor as she presents her Seven Money Mantras - a refreshingly honest combination of her own financial expertise sprinkled with lessons learned from Big Mama:
1. If it's on your a$$, it's not an asset.
2. Is this a need or a want?
3. Sweat the small stuff.
4. Cash is better than credit.
5. Keep it simple.
6. Priorities lead to prosperity.
7. Enough is enough.
The author of the award-winning nationally syndicated column ""The Color of Money"" (The Washington Post), Michelle Singletary is also a regular commentator on various NPR programs and network and cable television programs. She has written numerous books about personal finance, including Spend Well, Live Rich: How to Get What You Want with the Money You Have.

VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
