I’ve been educating myself about how to handle our finances lately and I like reading books and attending seminars related to it. I was glad that I was one of the chosen bloggers to receive this book to review: I Wish They Taught Money in High School by Clarisa De la Paz and Sharon Que
It is a back to back book and it cost P500.00.
Here are some of the realization I got from the book, which at my age, I definitely agree.
- Not all big companies pay big. Being an employee will not make you rich.
- The school teaches us to have a stable job and then put the money that you earn in a bank, we should have taught the kids how the mutual fund and the stock market work.
- Credit cards can help you if you will educate yourself on how to handle and use it properly.
Things I Like About I Wish They Taught Money in High School:
- The author explained the cash flow in layman’s terms so that everybody who will read the book can understand it easily.
- There are lots of tips on how you will be going to reach your dream of financial freedom.
- The illustrations are nice, simple and cute.
- I agree that it is important to have a passive income and let the money work for you.
- The authors of this book got their inspiration from the Rich Dad Poor Dad books of Robert Kiyosaki which is also the first money related book that I have read.
