5 Financial Books Everyone Should Read

September 20, 2016


Cultivating Financial Freedom begins with the person looking back at you in the mirror. The decisions you make determine your future and what you choose to read, watch, and surround yourself with all have a major influence on your financial life.  So you must choose wisely. These 5 books have greatly influenced my life and have helped me pave the way to a successful financial future.


1.  The Total Money Makeover. This book, written by Dave Ramsey, has had the most impact on my financial life.  It explains the 7 baby steps and how to follow them.  If you’re serious about getting out of debt, this is the place to begin.the-total-money-makeover


2. The Millionaire Next Door.  This book is an eye opener about what it really means to live financially free. You may be surprised that the average millionaire isn’t typically the person you see driving a Mercedes or taking indulgent European vacations. It’s your next door neighbor who drives a domestic car and is extremely frugal with their money. This is a great read and I highly recommend it to everyone.



3. Secrets of the Millionaire Mind.  This book takes you into the minds of millionaires and helps you reset your “money and success” blueprint so that you can pave the way to becoming a millionaire yourself.  If you think like rich people think and do what rich people do, chances are you’ll get rich too! That’s the theory T. Harv Eker uncovers in this eye opening book.  As Eker states, rich people believe “I create my life.” Poor people believe “Life happens to me.”  Which way do you think?

4. Living Well Spending Less.  Ruth Soukup wrote this book to bring hope and encouragement to every woman who currently feels overwhelmed or stressed with a life–and budget–that feels out of control. It speaks to the mom trying to juggle all the demands of a busy life with the pressure to keep up with those around her.  It is a practical guide for those of us who often long to pull ourselves together but don’t always know how. It is real, honest, packed with practical tips, and speaks to the heart of the matter.

5. Spirit Driven Success.  Author Dani Johnson went from homeless to millionaire in just two short years. In this book, she shares biblical lessons that unlock the door to true wealth and prosperity. You’ll also uncover the habits that lead to poverty and the lies about money.

    Great suggestions. I loved Secrets of the Millionaire Mind and bought half a dozen copies as Christmas gifts one year.
    The Quiet Millionaire by Brett Wilder is one I’m reading right now and it’s very interesting! Thanks !

    The book that changed the way I think about spending is “Your Money or your Life”. It is an old book but it is as relevant today as when it was written.
