Welcome to my first instalment of “Mel’s Favorite Things.” ?
Cheesy name aside, I’ve decided that for the rest of the year, the last Wednesday of each month is going to be dedicated to sharing some of my favorite things with you. Recipes, books (all different topics because I’m a total bibliophile!), essential oils, life hacks, beauty products, podcasts—basically things I love and think will benefit you, I’m gonna tell you about them.
For this first list, I’m going to share 12 Money Books that will Change Your Life.
Whether, like me, you enjoy curling up with a good book to relax, listening to an audio version while you drive, or even if you don’t like reading at all (but would like the list for future reference ?), this post covers some of my faves on money, wealth, and investing-for-the-future.
I’m recommending these books because of the impact they’ve had on my life (this is not an ad and I don’t receive any reimbursement by promoting them.) They cover a broad range of money matters ranging from faith-based to educational to mindset to ‘woo woo.’
Basically, no matter where you are in your ‘money’ journey, you’ll be able to find something to fit your current financial situation.
