Summary

One of the most important steps towards being independent is financial independence. This means you are in total control of your expenses and the money you make. 

Money is crucial when it comes to living well in the community, but you don’t need too much money to become independent, happy, or even successful. You merely need to know how to control your expenses and manage the money you have, so that it can work for you. 

Debts can be a source of worry and anxiety for many people, and sometimes, it can be tough to know where to start when you want to manage your financial debts. This book will help you to get started on the path to paying off all your debts and become debt-free. The book will provide you with a clear picture of how much money you owe, and to whom, how you can contact credit card companies and negotiate interest rates, how you can prioritize which debt to pay off first, which strategy to adopt to clear your debts, and how to create a budget. Also, the book is meant to teach you the most important aspects of personal finance.

Besides that, you will further learn how to get started with investments and make sure that your money works for you, and not the other way around. You will be taken through many exciting tips and lessons that you should follow to fulfill your financial goals.

I've read a few beginner financial books, but this is hands down my favorite. I've recommended it to my little sister too. I will probably keep recommending it until she buys and reads it. This is very important for future purposes!

perfect investment!

I'm terrible at personal finance, everything I've read is boring and dry and makes me feel like I've done everything wrong when it comes to my money. This is the first book that I've read that actually makes sense, kept me interested, and had tips that I can implement in my daily life starting now!! The perfect investment.

Managing Money Right

Managing money can be so difficult and frustrating. I think this book will be like an ongoing resource for me so I'm glad I got it. I loved the narrator, he didn't get in the way of the content and the delivery is clear and effective.
