“I was as confused as most of us when dealing with finances and banks.
Vesna Milevska's book "FINANCIAL HACKS, How Much Are You Paying To Your Bank?" comes as a rescue, an invaluable guide that empowers the reader to take charge of their finances. The banking gets demystified. I believe it will change my life as well as the lives of many others”.

Things which were intuitively known to me or thought of, you have articulated, consequently making me a part of the ring of the financial wizards (at least while reading)”.
