One way to gain knowledge about money, both saving and making it, is through the pages of a book.
I’ve read many over the years, some I’ve liked, some I didn’t think offered doable plans, but the five titles I’m about to share with you are have been on my bookshelf for many years and will probably remain there. In fact, I re-read them once year as a refresher course.
Here they are and I hope you’ll check them out-
Your Money or Your Life-Vicki Robin
This one focus on changing the way you look at money and how when we buy things we’re really trading our life (hours, days and months) just for the pleasure of simply owning something. Think keeping up with the Joneses syndrome!
The Millionaire Next Door-Thomas J. Stanley and William D. Danko
The majority of people who make lots of money have certain traits in common and this book sets out to tell you all about them. You’ll quickly see that the rich are a frugal bunch of people or should I say like us, budget smart!
Think and Grow Rich-Napoleon Hill
I’m currently re-reading this one. An older book but nevertheless, a classic that’s still relevant today…in fact, even more so today.
Rich Dad, Poor Dad-Robert T. Kiyosaki
This was one of the first money related books I read. I love that Kiyosaki weaves his own tale of growing up into some of the best financial advice you can ever receive.
The Richest Man in Babylon – George S Clason
Another classic, and like the other books on this list, shows why some people remain poor while others prosper.
