IMPORTANT DISCLOSURE: I am not rich, but I do know one thing: I know how to make it happen, and I’m working my butt off to get there!  I have all the knowledge, experience, and therefore, know-how.  Now it’s just a matter of me putting it all into action.

Read these very same books that I have read and you will have a truly solid foundation:

  • The Richest Man in Babylon
  • The Greatest Salesman in the World
  • Rich Dad Poor Dad
  • Cashflow Quadrant
  • Before You Quit Your Job
  • Selling the Invisible
  • Multiple Streams of Income
  • The Think & Grow Rich Workbook
  • Becoming Rich
  • Understanding Stocks
  • Automatic Wealth
  • The Idiot’s Guide to Making Money on Wall Street
  • Buffettology
  • The Buffettology Workbook
  • Multiple Streams of Internet Income
  • Any books that teach you basic accounting & bookkeeping
  • And that’s just your basic education.

As a bonus, I will say a few words about general personal finance:

  1. You need to invest more.  If you haven’t, consider opening an Acorns account.  It’s an app for your phone.  You can read more about my journey with the app here: My first post about my Acorns account.  Elsewhere on this blog (click in the money & finance section) you can see my balance growing on a monthly basis.  Yours could be too!
  2. You also need an emergency savings account with at least 3 months of expenses.
  3. You need to stop wasting money on stupid things that you don’t use.  Start making a list and cutting out those things.
  4. You need to start coming up with business ideas that can make you rich.  True, most businesses fail, but… most people who do become rich did so by starting a business, whether a stock market investment business, a real estate business, an entertainment business, or even a burger business.  So start thinking already!

Lots more financial and investment tips coming at you soon!  Stay tuned!
