If you’re interested in learning about personal finance I recommend Tony Robbins’ new book, Money: Master the Game. 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom. While it is unnecessarily long and tedious to get through, you get a lot of good information from some of the most successful investors of our time.
The key point is that even saving a little money on a regular basis has the potential to grow into a very sizable amount because of the power of compounding – given that you’ve invested your money wisely through asset allocation and diversification. You also realize how much we could be paying in hidden fees and how much those fees reduce our savings over the long run. Enjoy!
