I am very happy to receive this book for review. It is very timely as I make my way in developing my financial IQ. I could proudly say that I am good at so many things, but I am not good with my finances and I am playing it safe.
This book has two sections: (1) I wish they taught money in High School so I’m not dependent on my paycheck; (2) I wish they taught money in High School so I can start my business right away.
Let’s talk about the first section which was written by Ms. Clarissa Seriña De La Paz.
The book first explained basic accounting jargon so it is easier understood by someone like me (a broadcasting major). She briefly explains the right formula to have extra income or passive income (a money earned from sitting pretty).
Most part of the book was from Robert Kiyosaki’s best-selling books. She also explained some myths about money and busted them out.
She also showed samples on how your salary loan could earn. Imagine a yearly renewal of salary loan could earn so much by investing in the right stocks or bonds.
At the end of her section she illustrated navigational tools to help readers start their own journey and become rich.
The second section of the book was written by Ms. Sharon Que.
She then explored the ideas of having a business. It could be something you will own or franchise.
She also illustrated samples of her own real estate business. And then emphasizing in making your goals clear and giving your 100% in each action.
She has hits of investing too, where your money can work for you.
In the end she showed a sample or letter of intent if we wish to start buying foreclosure properties out there.
Overall, I liked the book because of its simplicity, the illustration too is very friendly. It is like I am just talking to a close friend. This book gave easy jump starters, if you want to makeover the financial aspect of your life.
This is also a good reference book of what you can read to enhance your knowledge and interest in investing and business. You may want to read the actual books of Kiyosaki and Maxwell to learn more. You may also join seminars on investment or other ways of passive income.
Most importantly, this book strengthens my belief in knowledge and gratitude. We could all be rich if we will use our minds and God given talents. Extensive research won’t hurt and thus book showed the adventure of two brave women who will run the world.
If they can do it, of course we can too.
I am happy that with this book I can see myself on the right track.
I definitely recommend this book for people out there who are playing it safe. As Mr. Kiyosaki says we all have little chicken inside us, maybe it is time for us to fry it and sell (or eat) it.
