I’ve checked a lot of personal finance books out of the library.
Too often the books require you to follow the author’s investing strategy to the Letter. Or the book is too dense and difficult to read through.
Even though I have a Masters degree in library science I’ll stop reading any book that doesn’t hook me.
My all-time favorite finance book is Simple Money by Tim Maurer. It’s short and detailed and not a read you’ll have to plod through.
The Rachel Rodgers book above is impressive too. Her life experiences that she talks about are what pulled me into reading her guide.
Coming from a family that had to count every cent Rodgers saved up $33 in quarters and rolled them up.
As a teen she was going outlet shopping with well-off friends. After they had left one store she went to the register on her own. Plunked down her $33 in quarter rolls to buy a wallet.
Rodgers today is a financial empowerment Activist. How telling that her first solo hard-earned purchase was a wallet.
Anyone who becomes well off should help others who are less fortunate.
Engaging in acts of conscious charity that empower others to have a better life should not be seen as “giving handouts.”
I was given a handout until I no longer needed to rely on outside income.
For others having a job isn’t possible. My motto in life is: “No Judgments.”
It’s so inspiring to read Rachel Rodgers finance-and-memoir book rolled into one.
I understand the benefit of having characters in books and authors that represent a person like you.
When browsing the personal finance section I’m keen to see if women authors are on these shelves.
Right away I grabbed onto the book Rachel Rodgers wrote.
We should all be millionaires is a great finance guide. I’m going to install it on my iPad.
