Excellent time to invest during Black Friday and Cyber Monday

Last weekend was the Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend. I always make a point to invest during this period as there are significant discounts on..... books! The world is constantly changing with new trends and technologies. Therefore, we must always continually invest in ourselves to keep pace with the world.

When is a better time to invest in yourself? 

During the last weekend, I saved approximately 35% of the cost to invest in myself (free delivery included, don't even have to step out of my house). When's a better time?  If you are interested, you can find some books I have read before here. Will definitely try to make an effort to share some insights from these new batch of books after I am done with them! 

With the deteriorating economic conditions, I came across many sponsored ads on various social media platforms that sell courses on business, investing and beating the stock market. Most of them cost at least $1,000 with no guaranteed results. For those that are willing to delay gratification, great! You can start reading now to build up foundation in any subject (be it investing, business, real estate and etc.) that you are interested in for less than one tenth of the cost. 

As the most successful investor of the 20th century, Warren Buffet, emphasized: "Invest in as much of yourself as you can, you are your own biggest asset by far." Never stop learning on your path to financial freedom! 

What are some business or investing books you would recommend for Christmas reading? Do share with me !

    1. Hi Simeon,

      Agreed that the library is a great place to grab some investing books for free. However, I find it difficult to finish the books I borrowed even after extension. Sometimes I even forget to return the books due to work schedule/ overseas trips, leading to fines.

      I guess its a personal preference, if you are disciplined enough to finish the books and return them on time, why not? :)

  2. Great read! I have read Millionaire Teacher too, and it was so insightful. Will definitely check out the rest of your recommendations. thank you!

Financial freedom = Passive Income > Expenses. Always remember that there are two sides to the equation of financial freedom. Beside working on how to improve our passive income through investing, we should never neglect the expenses portion. By striving to improve both side of the equation, we can achieve our financial goals and win in the game of money.
