Marie Olaussen
How to Get Rich in a Year
Get your finances in order, peace of mind and be able to afford the life you`ve been dreaming of

How to Get Rich in a Year is a funny, inspiring, surprising and very useful book about personal finances. Marie Olaussen shows us how we can all change their ways, allowing us to allocate money for exactly what we want to prioritise. She shows how we can cut our consumption while still being able to buy a coffee on the fly, drink wine on Tuesday, invest in our own pension and go on holidays the family will never forget if that is what we want above all. This book contains no financial jargon because it’s so tedious the author can’t even bring herself to write it.

This is a book about finances with a sad but funny start and a proper happy ending. And from the very first chapter, readers will realise that this book purchase is a real money-saver.

The book went straight to #1 on the Norwegian Bestseller list when it was launched in 2021.
