To be honest, I didn’t start reading the book after like 2 weeks. It was lying in my cupboard waiting to be read. 2 weeks later, I started reading the book and I was literally awed by the theories in the book (if you still haven’t read this book, I recommend that you turn off the computer right now and head to the nearest bookstore). It shared on how the rich make money work for them and the poor work for money; how we are trained in schools to trade time for money; what is financial freedom; what are assets and liabilities (mind you, the house you are staying in is a liability unless it’s fully paid for); what instruments to invest in, etc. After reading that book, I got more interested in the financial and investing world. I started reading more books and attended free courses on investing. I also went to study part-time to be certified as an “Associate Financial Planner” to plan for my own finances and not rely on others. I went on to read value investing books by Warren Buffett, among others.
I have not looked back since. I must be blessed to be introduced into the financial world at such a young age. I also have good support from my Mom, my friends and relatives, namely my uncle and cousin, and we discuss on investing regularly. It helps to have a support group to ask questions and it accelerates learning and makes learning easier.
