I have been reading a lot of personal finance and general business related books on my Kindle for the last month, and I have found majority of the books very informative. I am currently reading “Prince Charming Isn’t Coming: How Women Get Smart About Money” by the talented Barbara Stanny – popular motivational speaker, financial educator, former journalist, and career counsellor, and I am loving it!
This is the second book of hers I am reading this month. I just finished reading “Overcoming Underearning(TM): A Simple Guide to a Richer Life”, which was also an amazing read. I learnt so much from the book, and I am implementing her tips already. I can’t wait to finish this current book and find more of Barbara Stanny books to read. Her writing style is right up my street, so easy to read, she is the real deal!
As a self-employed business person, I enjoy reading finance and business related books in my leisure time to keep myself informed. You would easily catch me reading a book on my Kindle, while on a train, in a car, before I sleep, or whenever I get the chance. Reading and writing is like food and water to me. I can’t do without them.
Reading these finance books have made me pay more attention to the health of my finances, which is not where it should be, but it is a work in progress, and I am happy it is nowhere where it was some years ago. And I am sure that is the case for many of us.
The reality for many of us is leaving from pay check to pay check, a never ending credit card bill, various store card bills, and online loans. Now there is nothing wrong with any of these if you do have them, life is hard as it is already, so being judged is the last thing we need from anyone, especially strangers. But the one thing I have learnt from these finance books, is that as long as you are on top of our finances, you are a step ahead. I have learnt to stay up to date with every bill and bank statement, and I working towards increasing my income streams, and spending less.
Have you read any of Barbara Stanny books? Do you enjoy reading about finance and business?
