The secret to become wealthy
Why do some people born in poverty manage to build a fortune while others work from pay check to pay check? Learning about how to manage your personal fund is the basis you first need to learn, then, investing is only one part of it.
Managing your own funds is actually very simple, but not easy. You need to be patient, persistent and acting unlike the crowd. In Rich Dad, Poor Dad Robert Kiyosaki offers clear and easy guidelines you must follow when trying to become wealthy. It is probably the most sold book about personal finance worldwide alongside The Richest Man in Babylon. It definitely helps to widen your horizon.
I can only urge you to read this book before getting serious with investing. You need to learn how to manage your own funds and what are the key drivers of financial success. At the end, investing is indeed only one part of the whole story. It is available in both English* and German*.
