Amazon is the best. I’m sure most of you have Amazon prime, if not why not? It’s the best $99 per year ever! Not only does Amazon make it way too easy to buy stuff (without going out into society) it also helps writers become authors VERY easily. Today my first ever book is live, I can officially say I’m a published author thanks to CreateSpace. This is a subsidy of Amazon and helps writers become authors.
Once I started writing for Super Millennial I got hooked on the writing part. In my quest to understand my own personal finances I also read a ton of personal finance books. My favorite books were short, practice and easy to apply to my own life. One of my favorites was, “Why Didn’t They Teach Me This in School.” I realized after reading it that I had to write my own book.
This is where my first book idea ever was born, “Advice for My Younger Self: The Successful Habits for Health and Wealth.” I wanted to create a book that was simple, easy to read, and useful for people who wanted to create habits for success. Personally I feel there is a huge gap between what is taught in our education vs. the real world. It’s not easy to navigate the real world. From managing your finances, finding a career, staying in shape and finding a balance in your personal life it isn’t easy. That’s where this book comes in. The book is broken into four sections: personal finance, professional, personal and fitness. Here’s a quick synopsis of each section:
College forgot to teach us anything useful towards money management and personal finances. After half a decade in college (Yes, I was a 5 year kind of guy) I learned nothing about personal finances. Once I started to take my finances seriously I realized I had no clue where to start for retirement.
Do any of these questions sound familiar?
- What is a 401K and Roth IRA?
- How much do I need to start investing?
- What is the difference between a stock and bond?
- Do I need a financial advisor?
- How do I plan for retirement?
- How much should I save?
All of these questions and many more will be answered in this book. If you’re a reader of the site you know this is a passion and one I will continue to have. My goal is help others simplify their finances and live a better life with less stress.
A large portion of the book is spent on personal finances as money shapes all our lives in some way or another. If you can control your finances you will have a better life. Of course everyone wants to earn more but more isn’t always the answer. The real truth is that people need to have a plan for their money. This way you don’t let money stress you out and negatively impact your life. The finance section breaks out step by step what to do with each dollar that comes you earn. It will not only show you how to save for your goals, invest towards your future and live a great life.
