My Top 5 Books For Your Personal Financial Education

I have always consider myself a pretty smart woman with money. I started learning about money and finances after college when I worked at the Chicago Board of Trade.

The financial education I learned there was far from the financial education we had during unemployment.

I believe we need to educate ourselves so we can move forward. Shortly after working at the CBOT, I started reading personal finance books to further my financial education.

I read all kinds of books. What I learned from these books was I am a spender. I had a hard time not spending money. This is why living on cash is so good for me.

This  book was one of the first books I read about personal finance. It helped me to visualize how the average American could be a millionaire just by living a frugal life.

This book helped me to start thinking about creating wealth, not just from a job but from a side gig too. It is probably the first book that encouraged me to be an entrepreneur and to think differently about making money.

As a young adult, David Bach’s teaching were just what I needed. I put all my savings on auto pilot. This allowed me to be able to asses the rest of my finances and pay off my debts.

If you don’t have the money to take the course, then I would definitely recommend that you read his book, Total Money Makeover. It gives you the same plan that is taught in Financial Peace, just without the videos.
