Hey guys! Got two awesomely sexy books to give away today, so hopefully you’re feeling nice and lucky ;) (I’ve had both of these sitting on my bookshelves for a while, and just realized I already had my own copies! So time to get them in YOUR hands now!)
The first is from a good friend of mine, Jenny Blake, who came out with her first publication last year – but who’s been blogging for 4+ years as well (which is how we met), and the other is from a guy I only recently started chatting with, but who also seems pretty cool – Andrew Hallam. Read on to learn about both books, and then at the end I’ll tell you how to enter to try and win these bad boys. They’re full of good stuff!
1.) Life After College: The Complete Guide to Getting What You Want
Life After College is an essential manual for every graduating student and young professional. It features practical, actionable advice that helps people focus on the BIG picture of their lives, not just the details. Life After College will leave you feeling inspired, confident and ready to take action toward creating the life you really want.
In Life After College Twitter meets What Color is Your Parachute for 20-somethings. Written by popular blogger and life coach Jenny Blake, Life After College provides tips, inspirational quotes and coaching exercises for every area of life including: Work, Money, Home, Organization, Friends & Family, Dating & Relationships, Health, Fun & Relaxation, and Personal Growth. The book is like having a portable life coach by your side — it is a “one stop shop” that is part journal, part motivator, and part guidebook.
(Amazon is currently selling this for $11.56 too – in case you don’t win ;))
2.) Millionaire Teacher: The Nine Rules of Wealth You Should Have Learned in School
Most people wouldn’t expect a schoolteacher to amass a million-dollar investment account. But Andrew Hallam did so, long before the typical retirement age. And now, with Millionaire Teacher, he wants to show you how to follow in his footsteps.
With lively humor and the simple clarity you’d expect from a gifted educator, Hallam demonstrates how average people can build wealth in the stock market by shunning the investment products peddled by most financial advisors and avoiding the get-rich-quicker products concocted by an ever widening, self-serving industry.
Using low cost index funds, coupled with a philosophy in line with the one that made Warren Buffett a multi-billionaire, Hallam guides readers to understand how the stock and bond markets really work, arming you with a psychological advantage when markets fall.
(Currently selling for $11.32 on Amazon…)
