Can ordinary folks like us become rich (Iím assuming most of you are ordinary folks, but in case Bill Gates is reading my reviews, no offense)? Is it possible to accumulate wealth even if you start later in life? Will your children be able to retire millionaires? These and other important financial questions are touched upon in Joseph Judahís A Dozen Golden Eggs, a very brief but useful and inspiring introduction into the world of financial responsibility and prosperity.
I say a very brief introduction because, unlike the much more detailed books by the likes of Suze Orman, this book clocks in under one hundred pages and may leave some readers feeling like they just havenít been given enough information. But this little book does serve as a great introductory course into the most pressing issues involving financial independence and security and certainly gives readers a great starting point for their own further research and investigation.
Like most books about financial planning, we learn about the dangers of debt, the wonders of compound interest, the power of having time on your side, and the spiritual connection to money. Judah, a financial advisor with a large clientele, seeks to bridge the gap between spirituality and financial prosperity, and, like Ormanís books, he does a nice job of showing how our attitudes about money often shape our outer manifestation of abundance, or lack of it.
There is good and solid advice about investments and the power of compounded interest to help build a small or large fortune, depending on when you start your savings. And there is a lot of inspiration to help you set, and reach, your financial goals. But if it is real meat you are looking for, you may be better off sticking with Orman. A Dozen Golden Eggs only touches on certain investment funds to seek out, and financial web sites to visit, but still lacks a lot of the detail the more novice investors might need to feel really comfortable going out there and starting up a portfolio.
Still, if you have been dreaming of beginning your journey towards prosperity and future financial freedom, this is a nice book to get you excited and help direct your path. Hopefully, with the advise in this book, you will find your dozen golden eggs and make wise use of them.
