Found two new books at the thrift store if anyone wants them :)
A classic money one belonging in all PF nerds’ home libraries!, and a businessy/entrepreneurship one for all those who land on the “love” side of people’s “love/hate” relationship with Seth’s work ;) I admittedly couldn’t get through this one myself, but I am typically a fan of his…
If you want one of these, let me know which in the comments below or via email and you’ll be entered to win! Then be sure to pass it forward! :)
“The Richest Man in Babylon”
Here’s a clip from the first time I read it:
What I liked most about The Richest Man in Babylon is that the whole thing is based on fables! Every chapter is a whole new short story that tells another aspect of managing money. It’s freakin’ great. Sometimes the chapters are connected, and others not, but it’s seriously the best financial book for those with A.D.D.
And it fits wonderfully in your back pocket! Haha… So if you take the metro/train every day like me, it’s super easy to store and read on the go :)
The entire book can be read in a few hours (it’s only 140 pages long) and it discusses everything from saving 10% of your paychecks, to investing it wisely to knocking off all debt. The craziest thing of all is that it takes place thousands and thousands of years ago, yet the advice is STILL relevant in today’s times! It really is a good read for anyone of us out there needing some more motivation – and even more so if you’re *just* getting into personal finance. It’s a PERFECT book for recent grads and/or untrained adults :)
