If there’s one thing I’ve learned about personal finance it’s that conventional wisdom can only get you so far.
The world is different now and the days of one-income households, starter homes, and work pensions being the norm are gone. There’s a ton of financial information available, but much of it is based on rules of thumb and sacrifice rather than a customized strategy to help you live the life you really want.
Growing up, I saw how my dad, a successful chemical engineer, did all the “right” things and still wasn’t living the kind of lifestyle that his multi, six-figure income could have provided. He loved his family, but he didn’t know how to save like it.
That’s where “If You Love Your Family, Save Like It” comes in. It’s a modern guide to money management that actually encourages you to apply the guidance to your personal financial situation by asking questions and providing space for your answers as you make your way through.
You’ll learn how to create leverage in your financial life, how to build true wealth, how to get clear on where you’re saving hard not smart, why your home may not be a good investment, and how to navigate personal finance if you’re self employed and don’t have a steady paycheck. The goal of each chapter isn’t just to provide general knowledge, but to help you implement that new knowledge so that you’re clear on exactly what to and how to do it so that your financial life improves.
