9 Books That Will Give you a Complete Money Makeover

When I first started my personal finance journey, I had no clue what to do first. People around me had all kinds of advice and it felt overwhelming because it contradicted each other. I decided I had to figure this one out on my own. So, I began my weekly trips to Barnes and Noble and explored every crevice of the Personal Finance and Business aisles. Within a matter of a month, I consumed book after book. There was so much I didn’t know and these books gave me a perspective I wouldn’t never been exposed to, it also prompted me to ask different questions, and I started getting familiar with the personal finance world. I was hooked.

These eleven books helped me create the foundation I needed to jumpstart my financial journey.
