Let’s start with the question, “Why do we need to be Financially wise?”
Having the means to read this blog means you or someone in your household is working and have a some sort of means of income. That’s why I didn’t choose the topic, how to earn an income. I know you’ve got that sorted by some way.
The main reason why you’re reading this is because you want to expand that income of yours.
That being said, what most of us are encountering problems in our day to day life is how to spend that money and make good use of it. In other words, making the most our of the money you’re earning, hence, being wiser on that matter.
I encouraged you to Start Reading a Personal Finance Book. Why start with that? Well, aside from most of you are busy moms, I know that finding time to read a book can be hard. That’s why, having 30 days to finish one is essential.
A book usually has an average of 300 pages. Ten (10) pages per day doesn’t seem too hard to do. (Tip: Ditch that phone while you go for no. 2, you won’t just come out cleansed but knowledgable too!)
Here’s some suggestions for you to choose from:
The author Cary Siegel shares how he realized how inadequately schools had taught his own kids about handling money. This book encourages people up to start up young and speed up, but didn’t overlook also those who are in their twenties and now looking in the rearview mirror; Nobody is too old to master his 99 principles.
This was the first book that I’ve read on Financial Education, and I must tell you, Robert Kiyosaki didn’t disappoint. It was an eye opener. The way he incorporated real life scenarios and how you can escape that rat race and finally enjoy real freedom can be overwhelming at first but learning more about it can be kinda addictive and mind-blowing!
If this book teaches one thing young people love nowadays, it is automation. This ones step plan of automatic your finances would leave you worry free. Who doesn’t want to lessen your load, especially about money and numbers and watch your wealth grow and manage themselves. How cool would that be!
As the its title suggests, you can clearly notice that this book is intended for those eyeing for an early retirement, which who doesn’t want? Clearly I don’t know anyone who would like to work their whole life. (well, except for those who’ve found their life passion where working doesn’t seem working at all) Lets get real, those kind of people make only about 10% of the worlds population.
If you’ve been influenced already by minimalism, then this shouldn’t be that new to you. This book makes the readers realise how living simple/frugal can actually make you a happier person. With the right mindset and great investment moves, financial freedom can’t be that far away.
So there you have it. I’m only suggesting five as giving more options to choose from may only be overwhelming and give stress on which to choose.
Having a hard time choosing? Just pick the first one! There’s 12 months in a year, you have more time than you can imagine.
And if you really can’t find time to read a book, don’t worry, we got you covered. Here’s a link on where you can get an audio book. Perhaps while taking a bath or eating breakfast or cooking dinner, you’ll have time to listen to it. In learning, there’s really no excuse if you want to.=)
