A beautiful, full-color guide to living with money, not for money, packed with fun, tangible advice from the women behind The Financial Diet.
 
Beyond Getting By will make you feel better, not worse, about your money and your life.”—Tiffany “the Budgetnista” Aliche, New York Times bestselling author of Get Good with Money

The girlboss came in many forms, and she struggled valiantly against our increasing exhaustion at her brand of pinkwashed-capitalism-as-liberation—but it’s time to put her to rest. Yes, money is essential to life, and managing it well can be the difference between freedom and constraint. But once you have enough, the focus should be on converting it into things that are meaningful to you: more time with the people you love, more creativity, more days to just vibe on the couch.

In Beyond Getting By, the women behind The Financial Diet teach you how to create (and pay for) a life you truly enjoy—and that you can be proud of. They show you how to push beyond what society tells you will make you happy to determine what you actually want, with specific advice and interactive exercises on
 
• how to define your own budget philosophy by no longer chasing fast fashion and instant gratification, instead allowing the unlikely duo of Sigmund Freud and Elizabeth Warren to guide your budgeting
• how the idea that we have equal opportunity is bullshit—and how to start a self-advocacy journal in order to kill it in that next raise negotiation
• how to stave off burnout by valuing your personal life with as much care as your career, in addition to figuring out the true worth of your time
 
Beyond Getting By is for the woman interested in a life where money is simply a tool and never a reflection of her worth. It’s for the woman who understands the limits of gamifying personal finance, and that following trends isn’t the same as creating a sustainable, wealth-generating plan for the future.

Beyond Getting By will make you feel better, not worse, about your money and your life. It will help you make decisions that are in line with your values and also move you forward. I highly recommend it.”—Tiffany “the Budgetnista” Aliche, New York Times bestselling author of Get Good with Money
 
“Finally, a financial book not about ‘nose to the grindstone’ and doing it all at all hours of the day. Because the fact of the matter is that having it all does not mean doing it all. Holly Trantham offers easy-to-follow steps to be intentional about the work that you do and to build an intentional life that we all want and deserve.”—Eve Rodsky, New York Times bestselling author of Find Your Unicorn Space
 
Beyond Getting By is a revolutionary finance book: It understands that money is never just about money. It will give you permission, and it will empower you. It will make you laugh and feel seen. And it will help you advocate for a raise as well as truly reconnect with what matters.”—Jessica Valenti, New York Times bestselling author of Sex Object

Beyond Getting By is a ‘finance’ book for anyone who hates finance books. It is so much more, and it’s obvious that the team behind The Financial Diet understands all the ways in which money intersects with our values, beliefs, priorities, and, in a word, life.”—Farnoosh Torabi, host of the So Money podcast and author of A Healthy State of Panic
 
Beyond Getting By offers a supportive, loving, but deeply pragmatic older-sister style of advice that will leave readers feeling inspired, challenged, and motivated to improve their lives.”—Erin Lowry, author of the Broke Millennial series
