David Chilton sounds like me, but trapped in a 40-year-old body.
His writing style is extremely informal, and he often uses sarcasm, puns, and incredibly badly timed & cringe-worthy jokes…
Either way, his books, The Wealthy Barber & The Wealthy Barber Returns are both great finance books.
As the name suggests, the book teaches you how to be wealthy, even if you were a barber.
The concepts are basic and fundamental; great for anyone!
Save more, spend less, invest and compound, and don’t get yourself in debt.
But Chilton not only provides great examples and humorous tips on how to do all those things, but he also understands that although the theory is simple, it is hard to execute.
The chapters are short (often 2-4 chapters each).
The book is broken down into many segments so it feels like actually a really short read.
I aspire to be a financial advisor or someone who helps the general population with financial advice…and although I do think that I know a good amount of information on finance, it seems awkward to take the advice for an 18-year old, doesn’t it?
I hope for a world where everyone, my friends, family, and the general population is financially literate and is not burdened by the concept of money. And I think a great way to spread financial knowledge is through reading.
And that’s why you need to read his book…Read this book if you want to be a Wealthy Barber.
Good Luck and always reach out! I am always free to share my investment journey
