Earn What You Deserve: How to Stop Underearning & Start Thriving

This is the unofficial textbook of Underearners Anonymous and Debtors Anonymous.

From the Amazon reviews:

* I have mixed feelings about this book, not because it isn’t good and clear in writing and content, but because so much of its content derives from dedicated people meeting and helping each other’s recovery – never for money – in 12-step programs – over the long history of A.A. and its more recent additions. Mundis has integrated much from these meetings into the book, but the original programmmes generosity of spirit has not quite followed. The book outlines a complex formula that details the value of housework, babysitting, home-repairs, in $ per hour, and suggests how a family could decide to share expenses and chores. Cleverly done, much too complex for me to put to use in the real world, but that section gave me food for thought. Apparently the going rate for housework is lower than for repair jobs, and this results in some further complex calculations. It could make a starting point for a couple’s sharing, and if both parties are flexible and resilient, they might make it work. I would become resentful, but that’s another story. I am reading this book, together with “Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions” (AA material) and “The Big Book (AA material) and “Real Artists Have Day Jobs: (And Other Awesome Things They Don’t Teach You in School)” . The 4 books together give a well-rounded perspective.

* I used Mundis’s other money book to get out of debt. When I woke up one day and realized I was still in trouble with money I got this book and read it. Very quickly, applying the principles, I have had changes. I plan to continue to practice these principles because I know they work. Thank you for this help.
