Practical Steps to Financial Freedom and Independence by Usiere Uko
these times of financial difficulty, people are always looking for ways
to increase their income and expand their finances.
does an excellent job outlining the steps you need to take in order to
achieve your financial dreams. He relates his own personal experience
with each step and adds a bit of humor throughout the book to liven up
what could be a dull subject. He provides a no-nonsense approach to
improving your financial circumstances.
suggestion throughout the book is to change your mind set from negative
to positive. Instead of thinking about what you don’t have, focus on
what you do have. Instead of telling yourself that you can’t do
something, focus on how you can accomplish what you want.
addition, Uko recommends you get your financial house in order. This
means knowing exactly what you owe and what your net worth is, as well
as preparing a will for the future. He also highly recommends that you
pay yourself a percent of your wages, even if you start off with only
one percent and increase the amount as you can.
point Uko makes is that people need to spend ‘below’ their income
rather than spend within their income. He stresses it isn’t necessary to
have the latest gadgets nor keep up with the neighbors in buying items
for appearance sake.
Practical Steps to Financial Freedom and Independence
is written in simple terms making it easy to follow. There are step by
step practices that help you discover where you are and where you want
to be. The book stresses that changing your attitude about money and
finances is the first step toward reaching your dreams.
