I’ve written two books since ‘retiring’ at the age of 25 in the summer of 2015. The first one chronicles my journey of extreme savings habits that lead to a life free from corporate responsibility. I consider my second book ‘Mastering Money’ to be my masterpiece. I expect it will collectively save readers millions of dollars over their lifetimes.
Mastering Money in Your 20s and 30s is HERE!
After over a year of work, I’ve finally finished my second book, Mastering Money in Your 20s and 30s. Shortly after publishing my first work, 25 IS THE NEW 65, I realized I needed to work on something foundational for when friends have questions about money. There is a real dearth of books out there that address personal finance for twenty and thirty somethings while incorporating the present reality of the tech revolution.
What This Book Does Differently
Ever wondered how to hire a financial advisor? What about if you want to buy term life insurance? How can you tell if the charity on TV showing the sad puppies is a worthwhile place to donate your hard earned money?
The only way to know the answer to these questions in the present day is to understand technology and how you can use it to your advantage. If you don’t know about roboadvisors, then you can’t talk about financial advice. If you aren’t checking prices online for term life, then you are probably not searching enough policies. If you’re not checking the online ratings for charities you donate to, then you risk poor use of your donations.
Mastering Money in Your 20s and 30s is a guide to money written for a typical Millennial. You can pay a CFP advisor $2,000 for a flat fee financial plan, or you can spend less than $10 on Amazon to buy something that will save you tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars in your lifetime.
Regardless of Your Financial Goal, This Book Will Help You Get There
I break the book down into five parts. The first is debt, as it’s very hard to move forward when you’re moving backward every month financially. The second is budgeting, because if you’re living paycheck to paycheck then money will never be around to do anything else.
The third part is insurance, because you need to protect what you must to avoid financial ruin and build wealth. The fourth part covers investing, including special details on buying individual stocks and bonds and how to invest using the latest startup firms and get super cheap commissions. The final and fifth part is how to hire financial advice and what advisors should do for you.
So if you have questions about the book, hit me up! I’d love to get feedback. This sucker ended up being over 100,000 words, and I even hired a professional editor and graphic designer for the cover. I don’t know if I’ll make the money and time back that I put into this book, but I don’t care. That’s the beauty of having enough savings to do what you want in life. That’s the security I want to give you. So learn how to master money over at Amazon today! Right now I just have the ebook version but plan on producing it on other platforms.
25 IS THE NEW 65
I wrote 25 IS THE NEW 65: How To “Retire” Outrageously Early And Do Whatever The Heck You Want to chronicle retiring by 25 and to show others how extreme savings is possible. No one should have to work to 65 years old. In my first book, I show you how to reduce your rent to a couple hundred dollars a month, keep your bar tabs below $5, save 60% or more of your pay, and max out deferred retirement accounts like 401k’s and IRA’s. If you make a solid middle class income, you too could “retire outrageously early” like I did.
This book will teach you how to embrace working for the man for a higher purpose, that of financial freedom. Retiring by 25 is not about lack of work. Rather, it is about finding your purpose in life. I retired more than a year ago. You are reading this website now because I am the boss of myself. I can write for fun rather than worry about what will show up in a workplace compliance report.
Retiring by 25 Can Be Retiring By (Fill in the Blank) For You
This book is about taking control of your financial destiny. About 63% of Americans do not have $500 in a bank account ready to pay for a financial emergency. That is unacceptable in a nation as rich as America. You will learn how my emergency fund enabled my 65%+ savings rate. While I acknowledge that very few people will want to or be able to retire in their 20’s, this is about choosing your own retirement age. Why let government programs and employers choose it for you? By reading this book, you will be able to fill in the blank above with the age that YOU want to no longer need to work for money.
Whether you love your job or cannot bear another Monday morning in your cubicle, this book is empowering. You can build a lifestyle of financial freedom. I would love to show you how through this link where you can buy it on Amazon for only $0.99, which you can’t even buy anything for at Starbucks.
