Before I started working at Dozens, I was finding it very hard to stay on top of my personal finances. So that got me into reading books on finance, to help me understand and learn more about money. I try to read or listen to at least one money book every month to educate myself about saving, investing, budgeting and wealth building.
Here’s my top 3 list:
Your Money or Your Life by Vicki Robin
The Millionaire Next Door by Thomas J. Stanley
Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki
So what do you read/listen to get a grip on your finances and make your money grow? I am always looking for recommendations, so if you have any good suggestions on personal finance books I’d love to know about them.
Unf*ck Your Finances by Melissa Browne is pretty much my bible There is also a helpful workbook to go with it now. She doesn’t go into great amounts of depth, but I find it really helped me focus on my goals and how I really feel about money.
I am in the process of planning a book or series of blog posts or articles (depending if I have a chance of being published) about debt, from the perspective of the journey and what is worth knowing and doing (and also not worrying about) along the way. So in other words, not how to avoid it but what to do if a person is in it more than they feel they can cope with.
So if anyone has read any books that cover any interesting or helpful comments on debt, I’d be interested to know about them. As I am not a finance expert, I want to make contact with debt / finance pros who I can quote and reference.
