My second book on my journey to 24 is "Unshakeable" by Tony Robbins.
This book caught my interest for two reasons. First, the success and impact Tony has had is unbelievable. I find him extremely inspirational and am interested in any content he produces. Second, in order to create a better future for Amber and I, I am looking to learn more about investing and saving money to create financial freedom for us.
I think this book is a great, easy to digest guide to beginning your journey towards financial freedom. Tony has spoken with the world's most successful investors and simplified their teachings into lessons that the layman (like you and me) can understand in order to set us up for a fruitful, profitable, and secure future for our families.
My biggest takeaways are:
1. Get in and stay in the market. Understand there will be corrections and crashes, but the market has ALWAYS come back.
2. Index Funds are a safe route to invest in when looking at stocks.
3. Be aware of fees!
4. Diversify your portfolio to best lower your risk while maximizing your reward.
Anyone who needs a better understanding of the investing world should check this book out. It also includes a final chapter regarding "Real Wealth" which is focused on your mindset and approach to success and fulfillment which is absolute gold.
