Pursuit for Financial Freedom Tour and Giveaway

An Average Joe’s Pursuit for Financial Freedom offers a different perspective on money than what is traditionally taught by our parents and in our school systems. The reason there is such a discrepancy between the wealthy and the poor is due to the difference in the way money is perceived. We are not born with the ability to maintain wealth: it is something that is learned. The knowledge of knowing how to make money work to generate passive income is something that anyone can learn as long as they are disciplined. An Average Joe’s Pursuit for Financial Freedom is based on practical concepts and discusses the problems that the majority of us face with our personal finance. The concepts in this book are based on theory by an author that practices what he writes about.

The author begins by informing you that nothing in the book is new; that it has all been said before. And I totally agree. I didn't learn anything new. It did though, refresh the financial knowledge that I already had, and brought it back into focus for me, and gave it new light.

He states that retirement income comes from various entities, such as pension, 401k, and social security. That is a problem though, because that income is reliant upon outside factors, which means you are not truly financially free. Ideally, your income should come from passive interests.

With a history lesson showing the evolution of progress, Munsey proves that we must change with the times or get left behind. We should set attainable short and long term goals. In order to reach those goals, we must change the way we view, save, and spend money.

I appreciate the research that went into this book. It was interesting to learn the history of money and the beginning of the gold standards. Although a lot of the information was repeated, I understood the need to be repetitive. There are even interactive exercises included. My advice is to read this book, and take charge of your financial future.
