I can’t wait to read this book again! Yes, again. I just got done reading it for the first time. The book was published back in 2008. It is a self help finance book, but it isn’t boring or dry. Alan Corey is quite funny and tells a great story of how he made his first million before his 30th birthday. He actually made his fist million a month before his 29th birthday. Corey didn’t do anything that hasn’t been done before, or something other people cant do. He is a “cheapskate” in his own words. He penny pinched and saved everything he could. Worked a day job he hated (shocker! Most people work jobs they don’t like), and saved enough for a down payment on an apartment. That apartment was his first investment into real-estate. Through out the book Corey adds in little blurbs of tips on investing, like where to start researching and learning about all things investing.
I learned some of the concept/terms he describes through out the book from my own previous research into personal financial. His story is inspiring. That is what I love most about this book. Corey’s approach to making a million before he was 30 is simple, drastic yes, but simple. Easily duplicated if someone is willing to be as dedicated as Corey was in his pursuit of a million bucks by 30.
I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for some inspiration in the personal finance department. This book is super easy to read and it even has a glossary of terms in the back of the book.
Let me know what you think! :) Happy reading!
