Among the hundreds of clients I coach each year, one thing shows up every time: their understanding (or lack thereof) when it comes to money. Facing fear and saving money have not only been the backdrop of Colin’s life story, but of every one of my clients’ stories as well. There has not been a book that better tackles the subject of money and our shame around mismanaging it than ‘A Comedic Guide to Money.’ Colin Ryan offers us a vehicle to make immediate change in our habits and our relationship to money, and to find the freedom we all crave.

An easy, casual, not-at-all-grueling guide to making the most out of my life financially.



I never thought of myself as a finance person. But as I started designing a fulfilling life for myself, I realized that your ability to manage your money directly affects your ability to life the life you want.

That changed everything.

Pulling from my personal experience and teaching thousands of students, A Comedic Guide to Money is filled with tangible advice and inspiration. It’s a fun introduction to money that will help you increase knowledge and confidence and build a roadmap to the life you want most.


Everyone secretly wants to talk about money, but we don’t know if it’s acceptable so we don’t have much practice. This book obliterates the taboo of talking about money.


Finances don’t have to be boring, and let’s face it, thinking they are is one of the biggest reasons we avoid opportunities to learn more. This book uses personal stories and funny examples to bring money to life. And ideally bring money to your life!


The biggest barrier to financial knowledge is feeling like we're supposed to know this already. (Spoiler: most people are pretending a good chunk of the time.) This book will help get you over that speedbump and teach you what you need to know (in words normal people use). It'll also build your confidence and shamelessly imply that you’re probably already doing better than you think!


The key to changing your entire story is to choose your next chapter you know you can accomplish. This book identifies the smallest possible behavior changes you can implement. Because even one small win can create a new sense of self and hopefulness for what else is possible.


We hear a lot about the negative sides of money. The truth is, positivity is a powerful mindset shift we all are able to make. And once you do this, you begin to change your situation for the better on a scale that will surprise you.
