As we approach a new year, I wanted to share a few of the books which shaped my perspective on money and inspired me to turn my life around after going broke in Las Vegas. Maybe you or someone you know could benefit from a fresh view on money or personal finance, or maybe a refresher for a new start in 2018. Regardless, here I’ve compiled some of my favorites.
In my first post, I quoted a few lines from Benjamin Franklin’s Advice to a Young Tradesman (1748) about valuing your time as you would value money.
The clarity of that quote led me to read the entire passage (it’s only a couple pages long), and it was definitely time well spent.
I’m a big fan of Napoleon Hill’s writing. It’s fascinating to read about money in the day-to-day context of past generations, in a time before PC’s, the internet, or social media. It also illustrates the deep-seated desire for people to be rich regardless of historical time period.
