This was the first book I've ever read that completely changed the way I looked at money and what truly means to achieve financial freedom. It talks about the main mentality that makes rich people rich from understanding assets and liabilities and understanding passive income to the mental blocks and emotions. Many people experience that keeps them poor, and even a few tricks that the rich use to pay less in taxes.

This book gives a very complete understanding of wealth creation. And if you ask anyone in the business community, they would agree. That is why this is the first book in the list because after reading this book, you'll have a great understanding on what it takes to build a financially free life.

And remember, the story consists of a man who grew up in the same place with the same opportunities as everybody else. But he followed five fundamental rules of wealth which led him to become the richest man in Babylon. Number four, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. This book was the creation of Napoleon Hill when one of the richest men in the world at the time Andrew Carnegie gave him access to some of the richest men in the world, people who amassed great fortunes and were the best of what they did. Carnegie believed that anyone could be rich that they followed a set of principles that these successful people used to build their wealth.

the four hour workweek by Tim Ferriss. This book is one of my favorites. I mean, have you ever felt like your life is just passing you by while you're going to work? I did to the reason why this is one of my favorite books is because it took me from working 60 hours a week on multiple jobs to working four to six hours a week while making the same amount or even more than when I was working. This book focuses on relative income, not just how much you make in total, but how much you make relative to your time because well, your time is much more valuable. Tim Ferriss focus on cutting out the unnecessary things that most people waste their time while building a business and only doing the minimum work necessary while creating the maximum amount of results. Tim Ferriss also talks about location independence, where you can have complete control of where you want to be without being tied down to a location for a job. This book came out not too long ago in 2007, but completely changed the way we looked at business and we are glad it did. Number seven, the Millionaire Next Door by Thomas J. Stanley.
