Here at The College Mom, I often like to tgive you some informaiton about ways you can enhance other aspects of your life, beyond school. Sometimes that comes in the form of sharing resources. I'm an avid reader. While I love a good work of fiction, I most often read non-fiction. How-to and personal development books are my favorite because I'm constantly looking for ways to improve myself and my life.
An author I recentl ycame across and would like to share a bit about here is Michael Masterson. One of the goals of most women who decide to pursue higher educaiton is usually to make more money. As an independent, work-at-home professional, that is also one of my goals. When you work for yourself, making and managing money can often become more of a focus than when you work in a traditional job with a steady paycheck. So I've recnetly started thinking about ways in which I could direct more financial freedm my way so that I can enjoy life more, with fewer worries.
Masterson is a financial expert who writes a newsletter ready by hundreds of thousands. It's called Ealry to Rise. He has a number of books about wealth and financial independence. One that caught my eye is called Automatic Wealth for Grads...And Anyone Else Just Starting Oot. In this book, Masterson shares financial strategies that have proven to work for him to show the reader how to create wealth for themsleves. That can be a particularly daunting task when you're just starting out. Some of these principles may even be useful in your current life situation, starting out on a new adventure.
This book, in particular, gives information on things new grads need to know such as not only getting your first job, but moving ahead in your chosen field. That's something that's often missing from instrucitonal texts on the job search. He also teaches business and investment strategies that can help to provide supplemental income to your day job.
So if you're interested in learning about ways to get ahead financially, particularly at this time in your life, Michael Masterson's book may just be something to consider adding to your reading list. Remember that textbooks aren't all you should be reading during the college years. Take time to learn something for your personal satisfaction and knowledge!
