Book Praise & Reviews ""As a how-to guide, this book contains everything you may need to know to turn your passions into profits."" Bill Bartmann (Billionaire entrepreneur, author, speaker, educator) Read & Give Program A portion of the sale of this book is donated to charity. Book Description Are you unhappy in your job? Are you tired of living paycheck to paycheck and feel like you just don't have enough money, skills, or education to turn your life around? Even if you're not sure you know what it is you like to do, you can change your life and get rich doing it, says entrepreneur Duane Harden in his wise and entertaining new book, 5 Easy Steps to Financial Freedom: Do What You Love & Get Rich Doing It. Turning your passion into a profitable business is easy, fast, and fun, says Harden, and you can become rich in just five easy steps. First, start by saying yes to financial freedom. Attitude is everything and as the Law of Attraction states, what you put out into the universe is often what you attract. If you imagine yourself financially secure and happy, you will be. Imagining a new life for yourself is the inspiration you need to go out and do the concrete things to turn your dreams into a reality. Conversationally written and filled with humorous drawings, helpful worksheets, and key tips, 5 Easy Steps to Financial Freedom also offers a 90-day action plan that includes blueprints for success that Harden himself used to build his wealth. His own journey included the purchase of numerous real-estate properties, opening a restaurant, starting a music company, and much more. Harden gives you "Life Assignments" that get you thinking and acting differently. Beware of what he calls the "crabs in a pot" mentality, where everyone is trying to pull everyone else down in order to struggle to the top. Instead, he advises, think positively. Stay away from the naysayers and feed your dream. Soon you will realize that your inner life is reflected in your outer life. Harden helps you to discover the real you, what you want, and how much money you want to be there for you now and in the future. He explains how the real difference between rich people and poor people is fear and an unwillingness to keep an open mind to new opportunities. Rich people are not afraid to take risks, and well-planned risks almost always pay off. Success, he reminds you, is your birthright and it's your job to claim it. Review your credit and your financial house. Clean up the clutter in your life, whether it is the wrong way of thinking or a messy desk. Discover what really makes you tick because when you love what you do it's never really work, and when passion is present the money will miraculously follow. Keep daily positive reminders taped where you can see them, or even have a vision board filled with photographs of where you want to be in life. Write your resignation letter to your boss, but don't send it yet. Just the act of writing it puts you in the right frame of mind for moving on to something much better. "You are what you think and will become what you dream," says Harden. You'll learn to be a PIG (passive income generator) Farmer, which requires little work but makes you tons of money. 5 Easy Steps to Financial Freedom shows you how go from rags to riches and is understandable and easy to read. This invaluable guide will change your life!

A Proven Path to All the Money You Will Ever Need

The International Bestseller "This book blew my mind. More importantly, it made financial independence seem achievable. I read Financial Freedom three times, cover-to-cover." —Lifehacker Money is unlimited. Time is not. Become financially independent as fast as possible. In 2010, 24-year old Grant Sabatier woke up to find he had $2.26 in his bank account. Five years later, he had a net worth of over $1.25 million, and CNBC began calling him "the Millennial Millionaire." By age 30, he had reached financial independence. Along the way he uncovered that most of the accepted wisdom about money, work, and retirement is either incorrect, incomplete, or so old-school it's obsolete. Financial Freedom is a step-by-step path to make more money in less time, so you have more time for the things you love. It challenges the accepted narrative of spending decades working a traditional 9 to 5 job, pinching pennies, and finally earning the right to retirement at age 65, and instead offers readers an alternative: forget everything you've ever learned about money so that you can actually live the life you want. Sabatier offers surprising, counter-intuitive advice on topics such as how to: * Create profitable side hustles that you can turn into passive income streams or full-time businesses * Save money without giving up what makes you happy * Negotiate more out of your employer than you thought possible * Travel the world for less * Live for free--or better yet, make money on your living situation * Create a simple, money-making portfolio that only needs minor adjustments * Think creatively--there are so many ways to make money, but we don't see them. But most importantly, Sabatier highlights that, while one's ability to make money is limitless, one's time is not. There's also a limit to how much you can save, but not to how much money you can make. No one should spend precious years working at a job they dislike or worrying about how to make ends meet. Perhaps the biggest surprise: You need less money to "retire" at age 30 than you do at age 65. Financial Freedom is not merely a laundry list of advice to follow to get rich quick--it's a practical roadmap to living life on one's own terms, as soon as possible.

This book is a description of the processes my family has gone through to get to where we are today. I'm retired at 55, and we own our home and three cars. We have no debt. We pay no interest, and most important, we're methodically saving to replace items as they break or wear out (which of course is virtually everything we own). The pages of the book provide the reader with the 30 levels that must be achieved to place you and your family in a debt-free, stress-free financial situation. Each step improves your position. It's a financial lifestyle. A lot of books have been written on this topic. This book is unique in several ways. The book is short and blunt. That's because the solutions are simple. I don't waste your time. I provide forms that will aid you in your planning. Also included are illustrations to drive home a few points. Most importantly, you'll learn how to set up a Replacement Fund. I learned about the importance of a Replacement Fund when we were investing in real estate. I think the Replacement Fund concept is the most important difference when you compare this book to other books on the market.

A school dropout at 13 years, veteran financial adviser and author Benny Ong entered the insurance industry in 1967 and after 23 years, set up his own company and pioneered a fee-based advisory for personal and business financial planning in Singapore. In retrospect, after 50 years of dealing with and observing how people relate to money, Benny feels compelled to share his insights on the provocative question: “How much money is enough?” In his inimitable style, Benny uses his own life stories, anecdotes and real-life events to articulate his thoughts on the seven rules in achieving financial freedom. These include: Understanding the difference between financial freedom and financial independence; the discipline of spending below your means; the risks associated with buying on credit; learning how to invest for the long term; doing something meaningful in your later years. Akin to guiding his clients in their personal financial planning over the past five decades, Benny hopes to share with you the truth about money: what it takes and what it means to have enough money, more than enough money and how you can achieve true financial freedom and live a satisfied and fulfilling life.

MONEY BASIC$ FOR EVERYDAY PEOPLE was created from a desire that all Americans should have the opportunity to acquire their own personal fortunes and live their dreams. It is not our lack of effort and hard work that keeps us from having our wealth. The problem is that most people lack the knowledge to make their money work for them. Since money principles are not emphasized in schools and most financial books are too complicated and detailed in content, people never learn the basics. The American savings rate has been in decline for the last 65 years and millions of hard working couples are now retiring at or just above the poverty level. This book is designed to give basic money information that everyday people can understand and really put to use. The purpose of MONEY BASIC$ for EVERYDAY PEOPLE is to provide simple and useable ideas about money concepts that may have been hidden from you. This book will offer insights into how money works that your families, friends, neighbors, and co-workers do not know. You will learn that you don’t have to be a financial wizard to make your money work harder. Below are a few examples: Would you like a bigger tax refund check? Would you like to know how to save for 6 years and you could possibly have your retirement? Would you like to save hundreds of dollars on your insurance premiums? Would you like to know more than most people in America about money? Would you like to finally have your EYES WIDE OPENED to the mystique of finance? These pages are full of proven concepts and ideas to help you achieve your financial goals. I have purposely concentrated only on the most important topics that will explain how to make your money work harder. What you will need to learn is condensed into just FIVE SIMPLE STEPS that will be easy to understand and put into use everyday. By learning and using the FIVE SIMPLE STEPS that are explained in these chapters, you can achieve financial freedom.
