Studying hard, getting nice grades, and getting a job is not enough to be rich. That’s one lie which we have been fed with since our childhood. There is a difference between scholastic, professional and financial education. The book further analyzes the root cause of why you are not rich. It all boils down to your education. You were never taught about how to be rich at school. Forget that, you never even learned personal finance or how to handle money. It further touches upon how you can get smart with personal finance.
Perhaps the biggest argument Laura makes is the fact that everything can change if you change your mindset. Buying that expensive dress, impulsive buying, etc. are all signs of a poor mentality. If you make changes to your lifestyle and spending habits today, you will reap the benefits tomorrow.
On making money, Laura’s approach is simple – she emphasizes on investing, spend less, and plan for a long-term. This isn’t something new. We have all heard it. But we never implement it. Laura gives real life examples of how you can start your journey to being rich by investing for a long-term, planning your finances, and by staying on a budget. Last but not the least, she focuses on self-investment by developing your mental, financial, and emotional intelligence.
To sum up, Laura has come up with a book that truly focuses on the core problem today – financial planning and money making is simply not taught at schools. The book truly provides a step by step guide to change your thinking about money, set realistic goals, and embark a journey towards riches.
