Read these books and rewire your brain forever!

Running a successful business took consistent effort.  That’s it.  Whatever makes money, I do more of.  The things that don’t work, are useful lessons and I just move onto the next thing.

We’ve all got the same amount of time and you are just as capable of figuring this stuff out as anyone else.  

By the end of this post, you’ll understand that the difference is what we choose to do with our time.

Consistent effort = Consistent Results. 

Tim Ferris, The 4 Hour Workweek

When this book was released, I was a couple of years deep into my new professional service business. 

This book flipped an ON switch in brain that I didn’t know was there, and I have not been able to turn it OFF since. 

You can automate and delegate your entire business?  WHAT?!

The second I finished this book, I started my online business journey and immediately off-loaded 75% of my work process. This increased my free time and profits simultaneously and was the instant validation I needed to prove that he was right and move forward. 

I used the free time I had to teach online courses and start an app business. 

Ferris is a consummate life hacker, and my takeaways from this book prove to be true year after year. Its my number one, because out of all the books listed here in this post it got me the fastest results. 

Robert Kiyosaki, Rich Dad Poor Dad

Rich Dad Poor Dad is a personal finance book written by Robert Kiyosaki. It advocates for financial literacy and the importance of having multiple streams of income, and suggests that individuals should focus on building wealth through investing in assets rather than just working for a traditional salary. The book is told through the lens of the author’s childhood, during which he learned about money from two very different father figures: his biological father, who was a highly educated but financially struggling schoolteacher, and his best friend’s father, who was less formally educated but financially successful as a businessman. Through these two “dads,” Kiyosaki illustrates the different mindsets and approaches to money and wealth.

Takeaways:

1.     Traditional education does not adequately teach financial literacy and wealth building.

2.     It is important to have multiple streams of income and to focus on building wealth through investing in assets rather than just earning a salary.

3.     The mindset and beliefs about money and wealth can greatly impact an individual’s financial success.

4.     It is important to continually educate oneself about personal finance and investing.

5.     Financial independence is achievable through smart financial decision making and planning.

6.     It is important to take calculated risks in order to achieve financial success.

7.     The power of compound interest can greatly impact an individual’s wealth over time.

8.     It is important to be proactive in managing one’s financial future rather than being passive and relying on the government or employer to provide financial security.
