After six years of writing over 1,000 personal finance articles, I’ve compiled 35 of the best Financial Samurai articles into one eBook to help you achieve financial independence sooner, rather than later. Financial Samurai is one of the largest personal finance sites with roughly one million organic pageviews a month. I write from experience as someone who received his MBA from UC Berkeley, spent 13 years in the financial world as an Executive Director at a couple major investment banks, and retired from Corporate America at the age of 34 with a very healthy financial nut to focus on living life on my own terms.
For some reason, there is a dearth of personal finance education in our school system. Yet, what is more important than securing our financial future? The goal of the book is to empower you with the knowledge to make better financial decisions. I’ve learned from my money mistakes (e.g. 401k, job, real estate mistakes) to help you avoid the same land mines. Money can be intimidating, but it shouldn’t be so complicated as to cause paralysis.
For long-time readers, the book acts as a terrific reference guide to review some of the most important personal finance topics in one place. You can even purchase the book for a friend or loved one as a gift. For new readers, The Best Of Financial Samurai will teach you new financial concepts and new ways of thinking to solidify your financial future. Many of the articles have been featured in major publications such as The LA Times, Kiplinger, The Wall Street Journal, The Chicago Tribune, and more.
