✅ Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
MY FAVE BOOK. Seriously. This book has actionable steps at the end of each chapter to help you achieve whatever you want in life. My mind was seriously blown at how good I became at setting out plans for my desires.
📕 My Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey
The quintessential book for personal finance, in my opinion. Dave Ramsey’s baby steps are easy to follow despite it being geared towards generations ahead of millennials. This book jump started my debt free journey.
💰 The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of America’s Wealthy by Thomas J. Stanley and William D. Danko
I loved learning about habits of millionaires in this book. It’s written in the ’90s but it’s still relevant today.
📗 The Little Common Sense Book of Investing by John C. Bogle
Hands down, the best book on investing I have ever read. Bogle keeps the language simple and the book is only 216 pages.
🏆 How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie
If you ever wanted to be a better conversationalist, you better read this book. I learned so much about communication, and how many people suck at it!
MY LIFE IS INFINITELY BETTER BECAUSE OF…
I had braces back in high school and like most 18-year-olds, I quit wearing my retainer. Nerd alert! I recently completed a five month treatment with SmileDirectClub that gently moved my teeth back to the straight and narrow.
If you enjoy international traveling, do it on the cheap! NextVacay is a paid email subscription that emails you about deals on international flights leaving out of your home airport.
💳 Chase Freedom
Chase is the only credit card company that I use for personal and business expenses. If you’re new to credit cards, check out the Chase Freedom card. There are quarterly cash back incentives, plus you can build up points to use for travel. If you typically put more than $200 per month on a credit card, this option might be good for you.
🧐 Chase Sapphire Preferred
If you already have experience using credit cards responsibly, i.e. you pay off your bill in full every month, check out the Chase Sapphire Preferred card. This is a step up from the Freedom card. No fees for using internationally, and earn 2x points on travel and dining. If you typically put more than $1,300 per month on a credit card, this option might be good for you.
