We all want financial freedom…or do we?
If you are new to Personal Finance, here is the list of books I recommend:
1. The Richest Man in Babylon
Talks about many personal finance topics from insurance to investing, with stories set in ancient Babylon.
2. The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of America’s Wealthy
It’s not the high income earners like doctors and investment bankers who are the millionaires – they are often in debt because they spend beyond their means. Your humble neighbour, with the right mindset, could be a hidden millionaire. Talks about what traits are seen in the millionaire. You would’ve never guessed.
If you didn’t grow up talking about money with your parents, this is a good start.
The sassy title made me pick up this book. Lots of good examples, particularly recommend to those who just landed a job out of school. It is a practical guide that shows you what to do with the money you earn to finish rich. The concept is not that hard (but practise…that’s the hard part…hence self help books help with personal finance)
