The Automatic Millionaire was the book that got us started on our road to financial freedom. David Bach deftly teaches you how to automatically “pay yourself first” – each and every time you get your paycheck. His plan is simple and can even help those of us with ordinary incomes become millionaires. This is a must read for anybody wanting to improve their money IQ!
The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey is one of the hottest financial books of the last several years. If you’ve heard Mr. Ramsey on the radio, you know that his approach is very simple, yet it is very no-nonsense. You’ll learn budgeting techniques, debt repayment strategies, and how to change your spending habits. Ramsey encourages you to, “Live today like nobody else will, so that you can live tomorrow like nobody else can.” We love us some Dave Ramsey, and you will too!
If you don’t like Suze Orman, I say that you don’t like money. OK, that may not be true, but Suze Orman is an absolute hoot to watch and to read. Every time I’m about to do something stupid with my money, I hear Suze’s voice in my head saying, “DENIED, DENIED, DENIED!” The Money Class teaches you, “Everything you need to know about taking care of your family, your home, your career, and planning for retirement—no matter where you are in your life or where the economy is heading.” Grab a copy of this book and you won’t be sorry!
