Books for Beginners

I made this blog to help people who are sick of their current situation, who are in poverty, and those people who want to have that financial freedom. In todays world, one of reason and I think the main reason why most people are poor is the lack of financial education. We ourselves can make a difference if we start learning financial education by ourselves, by the use of internet, books, and other resources.

Investing your hard-earned money is the best way of saving for your family’s future, as well as your retirement and also to have that financial freedom youve always wanted. By investing, you can make your money grow over time, especially while you are still working in your job. Now, if you are planning to invest, here are some books that every newbie/beginner should read.
