J.D. from Get Rich Slowly recently released his book, Your Money: The Missing Manual. I’m pretty excited to read it and aim to do a review of the book soon. Anyway, let’s say you were writing your own personal finance book to pass along to your friends and family as a guide which would cover the most critical aspects of personal finance. What would you include in the book? What are the major takeaways from the personal finance world?
Next week I’ll be presenting my own answer to this question. I’ll share what I believe are some of the core tenants of personal finance. I’ll call this series of posts, The Key Takeaways of Personal Finance.
But before I get rolling with this series, I want to hear from you in the comments. What are your most important takeaways of personal finance? Feel free to just list one or spell out everything that you think is important.
