Should I Buy This Book? Review: Nickel And Dime Your Way To Wealth

Nickel-and-Dime-Your-Way-to-Wealth-Second-Edition-9780976700937 I’m going to say I was pretty impressed. It basically gives the philosophy of a little bit here and there really adds up over time.

It’s a story about a parking lot attendant and how he made very little money yet he was still able to create a small fortune over time.

I really like all of the little lessons it teaches about how you shouldn’t have an excuse that you can’t invest. The main gist is to buy and hold and to keep buying.

The Negative

Not really a big negative but it makes the book show its age because it talks about getting a pager to free up money to purchase stock. Pagers? Wow. But you get the point about what they’re trying to say.

The Positive

It really goes over the basics of buying and holding and how to free up money to invest. I really like the message in the book.

Would I Buy It?

If I was just starting out in the world of personal finance I would. It really shows by example how it’s possible to become rich over time on a small income.

Should I Buy This Book? Review: Masters Of Sales

I just want to do a quick book review today on a book called Master of Sales.  It is a pretty good book.  I found that I got a lot of great tips from it.  It covers everything from getting clients, cold calling, even some online sales techniques.  I would recommend it.  As I started reading I found that the beginning was very sales oriented, meaning you need to be a salesman to enjoy it.  When I got about halfway through I finally got to some information that applied to me as far as online.  I would recommend it for anyone doing any type of sales, either online or in person.  It’s really a good book. It has a lot of different essays from many experienced sales people.  It does a pretty good job of giving examples and having them tell their stories about how they learned the business.  The best way to learn is from the experience and mistakes of others.  This book does a really good job of this.  I would recommend this to anyone looking to get into sales at any point of time.  I highly recommend Master of Sales.

Should I Buy This Book? Review: How To Run A Thriving Business

How to run a thriving business is a pretty good book for someone deciding if they want to run a business or someone that’s about to start a business. It doesn’t really go into any of the technical aspects like accounting and inventory. It goes into mostly how to choose a business you’ll be passionate about, how to hire a great employee that will work hard for you, and how to market creatively.

I would definitely recommend it to those that are beginning to start a business or thinking about it.

Should I Buy This Book? Review: Creating Your Own Destiny

I am just going to give you a quick review of Creating Your Own Destiny.  I really enjoyed this book.  It teaches you how to control your life and not let others control it for you.  It also talks about creating your own wealth by starting businesses and starting different streams of income which is the key to becoming financially free.

This book also has a great section about overcoming fears and adversity.  Just start.  Go after what you want in life.  A great example is starting your own business; the hardest part is just starting.  This book does a good job of providing motivation that you need to start a business.  It also goes into setting up goals to accomplish becoming financially free .  I really, really, really enjoyed this book.  I think that everyone should own a copy.  It is very motivational.  This book is a short book, only about 150 pages.  It isn’t a long read but is packed full of a lot of information.

Wealth Virtues Book Review

images I’m a fan of Benjamin Franklin because of the impact he has had on this nation. Wealth Virtues has made me an even bigger fan (yea I know he had his problems, who doesn’t?).

The book goes through Ben’s 13 virtues and how they apply to personal finance. I really like how there are actions you can take now to get started in the book. Wealth Virtues goes into the financial crisis and show the lessons that can be learned from it so that we don’t repeat it. I also like how there are personal stories to provide examples so you can learn from other people’s experiences.

I will say that overall this is a pretty complete book when it comes to personal finance and taking the right steps towards financial freedom. I’d highly recommend it to anyone that wants to get their finances straight.
