The Best Books On Personal Finances Ever Made

Personal finance is a very important matter. Whether you take care of your finances or not, you have some degree of personal finances. As with most people, the goal is to have more money later (than less) and to have it sooner (than later). Personal finance is a journey that is not just about the accumulation of wealth. It is also about charitable giving and other acts of giving.

Building wealth and your personal finances requires a whole new set of skills that will allow you to transform and change your money habits to the better. These books are not perfect. In fact, there are some aspects that I do not completely agree with. As a whole, they lay the foundation of becoming a better handler of money.

Upon reading and practicing the principles in these books, I incorporate it into my family’s life as much as possible. Also, I see it being practiced by my mother-in-law for many years especially the concept of using envelopes to properly allocate money in every day expense such as groceries, charitable giving, etc. In my book, Nanay: Lessons from a Mother, I wrote about how she lived on that principle her whole life without using any credit cards.
