Cash Money Life is celebrating it’s two year anniversary today! It’s hard to believe I started this little website two years ago – time flies! Over the last two years I have learned a lot about blogging, personal finance, running a small business, and many other related topics. More importantly, I’ve met a lot of great people and had a lot of fun. You all make blogging a very rewarding “job” for me, which is why I want to say thanks with a little giveaway.
Two year anniversary Giveaway!
I will be giving away the following books and financial products through a random drawing. Entry is free and easy, and more details are below the prize descriptions.
Signed copy of Does Your Bag Have Holes. The subtitle to this book is 24 Truths That Lead to Financial and Spiritual Freedom. This is an excellent book and one that I highly recommend. This book does not tell which stocks to buy, how to maximize your cash flow, or other standard investment advice. Instead, this book uses personal anecdotes, parables, scripture, and other resources to share stories and examples of how to live a financially and spiritually free life. The book is steeped in Christian principles, but this is the type of book that anyone can benefit from reading, regardless of faith. Read more about Does Your Bag Have holes at Amazon.
Thrift A Cyclopedia. I received a copy of this book from the folks at BringBackThriftWeek.org. This David Blankenhorn book is an excellent look at the history of thrift in the United States. National Thrift Week was a national event celebrating responsible living that ran from 1916 through 1966. The goal of BringBackThriftWeek.org is to resurrect a National Thrift Week, and bring back the three 3 pillars of thrift: industry, frugality, and trusteeship. Thrift A Cyclopedia was commissioned as part of the push to bring back Thrift Week. You can read more about thrift at the BringBackThriftWeek.org website, and you can read more about Thrift A Cyclopedia at Amazon.
The Cure for Money Madness. Break Your Bad Money Habits, Live Without Financial Stress – and Make More Money! The tagline of this book sums up everything I try to do in my life and everything I try to share with you through this website. Spencer Sherman was a financial manager who one day realized he suffered from Money Madness. The Cure for Money Madness is a book about how he realized he needed to make some changes in his life, and how he made them. Sherman challenges some of the” conventional financial principles” that are oft repeated without regard to their application in today’s economic climate. Sherman goes over how you can change your view of money and what is important to you – ultimately leading to a greater wealth and life balance. You can read more about The Cure for Money Madness at Amazon.
Millionaire by Thirty. The tagline for this book is The Quickest Path to Early Financial Independence. This book is about two young brothers who started off earning $30,000 per year at age 21, and ended up with a net worth of over $1 million by age 30. How? Primarily by buying real estate and using the rents and appraised value to leverage their property to purchase new properties. This is certainly not the path for everyone, but if you are interested in real estate investing, this may have some good information for you. You can read more about Millionaire by Thirty at Amazon.
Nuru Personal Finance System. The NURU Personal Finance is a deck of 30 “ultra-thin, waterproof, and durable pocket-sized plastic cards” with personal finance information. Personal finance topics on the cards include: investing, loans, credit, insurance, retirement vehicles, and more. Nuru also offers other top level views of topics such as Golf, Auto Maintenance, Emergency First Aid, and Exercise/Nutrition. You can read more about the different information systems at Nuruplanet.com.
Signed copy of An American Hedge Fund. Timothy Sykes turned $12,000 into $2 million in 4 years and then created a hedge fund – all before the age of 26. American Hedge Fund is his story. You can read more about Timothy Sykes’ story and his investment strategies at his website TimothySykes.com. You can read more about An American Hedge fund at Amazon.
