“Reading is important,” said Barack Obama. “If you know how to read, then the whole world opens up to you.”

Like Barack Obama, I spend a lot of time reading. It’s a habit that helped me to become healthier, wealthier, and 10x wiser. That’s why I want to share several finance books that will (hopefully) increase your income.

Let’s dive right in!

The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey

Page Count: 229
Rating on Goodreads: 4.23

The Total Money Makeover is one of my favorite books of all time.

If you’re trying to increase your income, pay off debt, or reduce expenses, read it as soon as possible. In the book, Dave provides useful advice that anyone can implement. He also shares actionable “baby steps” to help you get from A to B.

The Total Money Makeover has sold over five million copies and spent 200+ weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. It doesn’t take a genius to realize that’s seriously impressive!
