Financial Autonomy, by Melbourne financial planning expert Paul Benson is about money. But, unlike most money books, it's not focused on making you the richest person in your street, or worse, the richest person in the cemetery. Instead, the focus of this book is on gaining choice.
Have you ever listened to a guest on a radio program or a speaker at an event talking about some amazing experience they've had? Perhaps it was travelling through Tibet in a beaten-up Land Rover, sailing around the world, jumping out of planes in a wing suit, or starting a business or charity of their own, driven by a magnitude 10 passion to make an impact.
When you listened to these inspiring stories, did you ever wonder how they managed to organise their life so that it was possible? Do you wish you could organise your life to do what's important to you?
Financial Autonomy is a book about money but it's equally about gaining choice. If you get the money side of your life right, you will have the choice to pursue maximum happiness in all the other aspects of your life.
Personal finance expert Paul Benson believes there are three vehicles to create enough wealth to have the choices you desire are:
(1) Investing in shares;
(2) Investing in property; and
(3) Working for yourself (starting a side hustle or small business).
He explores these in detail, as well budgeting and saving - and as you'd expect, he gives readers a choice of strategies they can adopt to succeed in these areas.
