TIP OF THE WEEK
Mark: My tip of the week is actually going to be one of those things, this book is literally going to be transformative, it is the one thing that I always recommend because it’s that transformative, it is the1thing.com.
Jay: I’m going to share the book that I’ve read. It’s a book called Happy Money by Elizabeth Dunn and Dr. Michael Norton. It’s not about building wealth, it’s about if you have a dollar what is the best thing you can do with it that will actually lead to more fulfillment and happiness, and it’s all based on research.
The Simple Path to Wealth: Your Road Map to Financial Independence and a Rich, Free Life by JL Collins is the single-best primer I’ve read that matches my philosophy for how one would use the public markets to build wealth. It explains compounding interest on how we retire on passive income in more detail than I’ve ever read before. Another great book is The Psychology of Money: Timeless lessons on wealth, greed, and happiness by Morgan Housel, it’s mental tricks about money that we can fall prey to or we can take advantage of. It’s deeply-researched, wonderfully written.
