One of the best quotes I’ve read that changed my life is “Fear comes from the lack of knowledge and a state of ignorance. The best remedy for fear is to gain knowledge,” bye might be practicing the safety protocols like staying at home to prevent the spread of COVID-19. However, I for one, have contracted the virus once despite being cautious. My greatest takeaway though from that experience is how important savings are. In a time where our health is at risk, it should be our top priority. And when prevention is not enough, the capacity to afford a cure comes next.
This is why I came up with a list (in no particular order) of personal finance books that could help us with money management and where to buy them. If we want to start making wiser decisions this year, these books are the budol trend that we should all jump on. Plus, they will make a huge impact in our lives.

Author: T. Harv Eker
Synopsis: In his groundbreaking Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, T. Harv Eker states: “Give me five minutes, and I can predict your financial future for the rest of your life!” Eker does this by identifying your “money and success blueprint.” We all have a personal money blueprint ingrained in our subconscious minds, and it is this blueprint, more than anything, that will determine our financial lives. You can know everything about marketing, sales, negotiations, stocks, real estate, and the world of finance, but if your money blueprint is not set for a high level of success, you will never have a lot of money—and if somehow you do, you will most likely lose it! The good news is that now you can actually reset your money blueprint to create natural and automatic success.
