This book could not have come at a better time in my life. We all read many financial books, that are here to guide us into taking care of our spending and finances. Well, I can honestly say I have read one too many books, and as much useful information as they provide me, I still felt lost and confused. Dollars and Uncommon Sense is somewhat different, when I received the book, I immediately thought this would be another book that will tell me things that I most likely will not do. I was wrong… It took me about a week to finish this book, only because I wanted to take action in what was requested of me, right away. Dollars and Uncommon Sense is meant to be read in one sitting, maybe two, depending on your availability.
What makes Dollars and Uncommon Sense the must-have financial book for the year 2012?!
The fact that you can start to see major changes to the way you handle your money, as well as the fact that by the end of the year, if you follow the steps in the book, you will most likely see major financial changes that you didn’t see in your previous years.
The thing that grabbed my interest and kept me motivated to read this book was at how easy the steps are, and although some of them won’t make much sense right away, in the end it will.
This book will teach you the following and much more:
- Change the way you think about money by establishing the 6 Key Traits of Wealth Builders
- It will teach you the 3 Ps: Principles, Priorities and Plans
- It will teach you how to spend your money. I know most of us do not need help in this area, or so we think we don’t. The Spending chapter in the Dollars and Uncommon Sense will make you realize that you probably spend more money than you think. It is a real eye opener.
- It will teach you how to change your Priorities. This one was a tough one for me, because it didn’t make sense. Hence the title of the book Dollars and Uncommon Sense, some things in this book, won’t immediately make sense to you, at least not right away. After reading the book, it all makes sense now. According to the book, your priorities should be as follow: Give, Save and Pay.
“Giving away 10 percent of what you make is the easiest and quickest way for you to start having more money.” (Dollars & Uncommon Sense, Steve Repak)
The book prepares you with really simple ways to get out of debt, save money for rainy days, and save money for when you want to “Quit” days. Dollars & Uncommon Sense: Basic Training for your Money is unlike any other financial book you’ll ever read. It will truly change your life and knock some financial “uncommon” sense into you.
