Guide to Wealth BuildingWritten by Will T
If you, like most people, have not seriously considered what steps you should take for planning your finances and are now planning on buying a house, getting married or having children, you will do well to read David Chilton's book 'The Wealthy Barber'.
It will not matter if you have never heard of a mutual fund or even balanced your checkbook. If dry financial reading is not up your alley, you will STILL find 'the Wealthy Barber' easy reading. It will have you fluent in financial planning in weeks.
The key to David Chilton's success with his book is that it is written as a story, rather than a manual. You follow three 30ish individuals as they build their financial houses from scratch. They get their information from one of most knowledgeable and financially secure individuals in town - barber.
The gem of this story lies in fact that barber shows how income is not biggest factor in planning for financial prosperity - proper planning is. And you can have your own finances in order by reading and applying tasks he assigns his 'students' while they visit for their monthly trim.
'The Wealthy Barber' has been favorably commented on by newspapers and financial reviewers because it does not stress budget or a reduced standard of living. It is these steps which often sabotage best intentions of individuals. The sooner methods are applied, easier it will be to see their effects while maintaining your lifestyle, but it is always better to start now than not start at all.
