I am a huge fan of the library and don’t make a practice of purchasing books I want to read. I own some of these books because I know that I will reread them, and have included the Amazon links if you feel so inclined to buy the books. You receive the same price, but I do receive a small commission if you decide to go through my links. Hopefully, you will so I can dedicate more time to bring you more great content and resources!
Without further ado, here are the books:
The Richest Man in Babylon: Original 1926 Edition – This is the book that started it all for me. If I hadn’t read this book, I probably wouldn’t be writing this blog today. The Richest Man In Babylon gives common sense financial advice, which you can apply today, told through tales and parables from the times of ancient Babylon.
Rich Dad Poor Dad: What The Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! – This book advocates the importance of financial literacy, financial independence and building wealth through investing in assets, real estate investing, starting and owning businesses, as well as increasing one’s financial intelligence to improve one’s business and financial aptitude. Rich Dad Poor Dad is written in the style of a set of parables, ostensibly based on Kiyosaki’s life.

The Power of Starting Something Stupid – People dream . . . and then they wait because they don t have the time or the money, or because someone told them their dreams were stupid. Only where would the world be if innovative minds always stopped at stupid? Google. Rocket ships. Glue. In theory, all stupid ideas. But what about your dreams? Where do they fit in? Can you really make a difference in this world in your world? The Power of Starting Something Stupid will teach you how to live your dreams now by realizing those stupid ideas are all just part of that same divine design that prompts your heart to do good, and that you already have everything you need to start realizing your goals now. It will help you realize that without your unique contribution, the world is a little less perfect than it was meant to be.
