Recommended Financial Reading
I want to recommend two books for you to read.
- The Richest Man in Babylon first published in 1926.
- The Millionaire Next Door published in 1996.
What do a couple of old books have in common? They both write about the basic principles to save and create wealth over your lifetime.
This is timeless advice discussing:
- How and why to control your spending
- Why keeping up with the Jones' isn't a smart idea
- Benefits of education
- Necessity of planning for your futureAnd of course...investing
