Before I start, let me say one thing. This is THE most comprehensive overview on money that I’ve ever read. Its also a book that I wish I read at 18 or just after leaving university.
Last August, I decided to take 2 years out of training to do locum work (basically, freelancing for doctors 😆). Despite being a professional with a useful degree, I didn’t actually know much about money outside of my pay cheque, PAYE taxes and my savings account.
Fast forward some months and I’ve learnt a lot through reading books, attending events and joining Facebook groups. I am now confident in investing in stocks and crowdfunds, tracking my spending and utilising mobile apps.
Now, everyone’s journey will be different, but we all have the very same opportunity to get better at looking after our money.
For the less informed ones out there, this book will save you from doing a lot of googling, losing out on simple gains & worst of all...making costly mistakes.
It runs through EVERYTHING. In the most relatable of waysss, @laurawhateley covers mortgages, renting well, buying cars & future-proofing your finances.
At times, I felt dismayed that I had started this journey in my late 20s. But as the fabulous Maya Angelou so eloquently says...once you know better, you do better. It’s a great starting point & I hope you find your way whatever your income bracket. 💰💰 [Edit: I have tagged some apps I personally use that have helped with my money journey.]
