It is good to read books about things you are interested in or passionate about. If it is about money, a good book to read would be those written by Robert Kiyosaki. While some might say that Mr. Kiyosaki may not exactly be a success story, but at the very least, pick the things that most definitely make sense. After all, there is really wisdom in his writings.
In Robert Kiyosaki‘s Cash Flow Quadrant which he detailed in his Rich Dad, Poor Dad book series, being on one of the right quadrants will move you towards financial freedom.
One of these quadrants means being an investor. If you have money, then the next logical thing is you make money work for you. The more money you invest, the more the returns will be as long as the investment avenue gives a positive result. (There are times that it fails and that is part of the risk, hence, the need to learn the ins and outs to avoid pitfalls or let them stay on a bare minimum level, is important.) The time frame might be different, but the important thing is, there are returns.
1. Shares, stocks, and bonds. You buy and you earn dividends on a given time span. You can buy them low and be able to sell them high. It all depends on the timing.
2. Lending. Lend capital money and earn interest monthly or annually. You have to be quite sure that the business that you are lending money to will thrive. Proper management and security measures are key.
3. Rent space. Buy a space first. That will be your investment, then rent it out on a monthly or annual basis. You can also lease it for long-term use. Commercial spaces or apartments are examples.
With these three examples, in time you can be touring the world and yet your bank account continually to grow.
These three would be too lengthy to discuss here. But what I can tell you is to research on these matters and ask for help from financial consultants. This will start your way to financial freedom and success.
