Book Review - HAPPY EVER AFTER: Financial Freedom Isn't A Fairy Tale by The Seven Dollar Millionaire
Updated: Jun 8
"Initially written for the author's teenage daughter and then turned into a course for migrant workers, Happy Ever After focusses on the fundamentals of understanding money, saving, and investing, to show how the "magic" of compound investing can transform tiny amounts into huge sums."
I was told that this was a 'must' read and I have to admit, I was a little skeptical at first (I mean, how difficult is it to teach your children how to manage their money?) but actually, it is a really informative and useful book for people, like myself who are not very financially astute.
It is easy to read and all the financial talk which can seem a bit alien, is explained in simple terms and it is fun, so it should appeal to a younger audience.
It has made me reassess my own approach to saving (always put saving first!) and spending and opened my eyes to investing, so I would recommend any adults who are perhaps not so great with their finances, to take a read too.
It would have been helpful to have this book when I was a teenager, I may already be retired at 40 if I had followed the M.I.S.S.I.O.N, who knows, but even if that isn't possible for my own kids, I will definitely be encouraging them to read this when they are older as I really do think it could help them to be more financially savvy.
This is perhaps not intended to be a parenting book, but I would definitely put it in that category and I will be recommending it to friends and my parent clients.
