First of all, thanks to everyone who suggested names and who completed the survey, which is now CLOSED. Go raibh m?le maith agaibh (which is how we say "thank you" in Irish but which literally means "may you have a thousand goods"...which is OK too!)
To be honest, watching the results come in was somewhat reminiscent of watching the Kenyans and Ethiopians in an Olympic long distance race.
There was a couple of ones out the front from the beginning but they were neck and neck for a long time.
Eventually the one that won (and that I'm going to go with) was Master Your Money: free your financial gremlins in 5 easy steps
. And yes, I know it didn't go well with some people on the group!
I want to say a particular thank you to Nicola Cairncross (www.themoneygym.com
) who suggested that name. (so you can blame her!
Just a reminder to you again that the e-book in its current evolution (Master Your Money: a simple 5 step plan to help you spend less and save more

? Creating financial goals: what do you want, how much is it, what is stopping you, how can you get around that
