Dave Ramsey’s total money makeover is one the most useful personal finance books I’ve ever read. The Total Money Makeover book is also one of the simplest personal finance book that will help anyone especially married couples and those in their late 20’s, 30’s and even 40’s.
Dave Ramsey in his book “total money makeover”, he said ” financial freedom is 80% behavior and 20% knowledge”. In my opinion, he is absolutely correct. Anyone who wants to achieve financial freedom should know how to manage his own money (budgeting, wise spending, investing, proper saving, etc) and should know where to put his money to make them grow overtime.
What I like also about this Dave Ramsey’s total money makeover book the helpful budget forms and worksheet in the back of the book. Aside from that, you can learn a lot from Dave Ramsey; take time to analyze this quote;
“If you worked for a company called YOU Inc. and you managed money at YOU Inc. the way you manage your own money now, would you fire you?”
This quotation will help you think that you are the ones who are responsible in handling your own money. Nobody will ever stop you on what you wanna do with your finances. But the question is, do you love the way you manage your finances?
