I have been having difficulties managing my finances for the longest time. I try to save but always end up spending the money I have put away. I know how important money is not just for my day-to-day living but probably more importantly for the future. Who knows there might be emergencies where I will need to spend money, so it is better to have something stashed away in the bank. That is why when I received the book I wish They Taught Money In High School, I was really glad. Reading and reviewing this book will definitely get me fired up again when it comes to saving.
The book is split in two parts, the first being I Wish They Taught Money In High School – So I’m Not Dependent On My Paycheck by Clarissa Serina-De la Paz. The book is a fun and easy read and used methods that can be easily understood by readers. It has drawings, graphics, and fonts that make it even more interesting. The author explained how to not rely on one’s paycheck and instead know the right way to have extra income or passive income. She also said that people should approach money in a non-threatening way, and as someone who still understands the joy of paycheck but has stopped relying on it. The book likewise mentioned and shattered some myths about money.
