Success is habitual.Good decisions come from good habits. Consistency pays off. This book links your success in the game of money to everyday habits, helping you break down that proverbial financial independence elephant in bite size bits. Day by day your will habits matter on your financial freedom journey.
by John Lee Dumas
Excellent content on how to become a successful entrepreneur from Dumas’ own experience and based on his interviews of over 3,000 of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs. Dumas explains not just what you need to do to be successful, but how you go about doing it. Practical, where a lot of other finance or investing books lack practicality.
by Elizabeth Willard Thames
A book about one family’s experience saving their way to freedom by rethinking their spending. This is an eye opening read about being a way more conscious consumer. It makes you think about whether you actually need all of the items you spend your money on – whether each of these is more important to you than your time and your life.
After reading this book I now ask myself two questions anytime I am about to buy something – How many hours of work will this cost me? Can I do it or build it myself?
In short, this book challenged me to spend way less money on things I never needed in the first place and now I’ve ditched the office 9 to 5. Enough said!
by Thomas J. Stanley & William D. Danko
This book reveals a different perspective on the wealth of America – they’re not who you think. They’re normal people with different habits focussed around building wealth. The take away – nearly anyone with the right wealth building habits and the tips from this book – can amass enough wealth to become financially free. The best thing about this book? You get to see yourself as that millionaire and realise how ‘normal people’ can play the game of money, and win.
by JL Collins
The Simple Path to Wealth was born from a series of letters JL Colins wrote to his daughter – about money. The book really simplifies the sometimes over complicated topic of money management, cutting out all the BS. Instead it hones in on the things you really need to stay focussed on for financial independence, like:
- The importance of having F-you Money.
- How to think about money, and how this unique understanding is key to building wealth.
- Where traditional investing advice goes wrong and what actually works.
- The Wealth Building and Wealth Preservation phases of your investing life and why they are not always tied to your age.
- How your asset allocation is tied to those phases and how to choose it.
Read it. You won’t regret it.
