One of the best pieces of advice I ever received is to focus my thoughts and efforts on the things that are in my control. Taking control of your education is a great place to start on your path to achieving financial balance.
Since 1998, I've read over 200 books with the majority being nonfiction titles centered on finance and personal growth. My goal with every book I read is to pull at least 1-2 great facts or ideas and put them to use in my work and in my life.
The list below is a carefully selected list of titles that I recommend everyone read. By reading these books, you may benefit by seeing new things that you've not seen before or by seeing old things in new ways.
