Financial Education Giveaway!

March is upon us and I wanted to reward my readers with some amazing spring giveaway. I’ll be giving away three amazing and highly popular books to educate yourself on personal finance and the Ninja at Dividend Ninja will be sponsoring not one but two Amazon gift cards.

Over the course of the give away, I will be reviewing all three books for all my readers to share the benefits of those books.


Millionaire Teacher: The Nine Rules of Wealth you Should Have Learned in School

Millionaire TeacherAndrew Hallam released his book in the fall and it caught the attention of many financial writers in both the professional and personal sphere. The book has been a huge seller to the point that it sold out just before Christmas. Andrew has done a remarkable job working with Wiley Publishing to promote the book and interact with readers through his blog. I have been a huge fan of his blog since I started blogging.

I have bought a couple of copies so far, one for myself and one as a present for my brother. I have also recommended it to a number of co-workers looking to improve their finances.

The Wealthy Barber Returns

Wealthy Barber ReturnsThe original ‘The Wealthy Barber’ was the first personal finance book I have ever read. Even though I was young, the rules were so simply explained that I remembered many of them years after. David Chilton wrote a follow up to his best seller The Wealthy Barber – a book that left a great impression on me in my early life.


Findependence Day

FindependenceThis book just recently got on my radar and I placed an order to read and review it this month. Based on what I have read so far about the book, it’s a must have. The well known author is Jonathan Chevreau, also known as the Wealthy Boomer,  writes about personal finance over at the Financial Post.

You can read more about the book at Jonathan’s Findependence Day web site until I have my review.


Amazon Gift Cards

The Dividend Ninja also want to help you educate yourself and is sponsoring two $25 Amazon gift cards for you to get the book you need. Give him a shout by subscribing to his blog.

    I am a huge fan of your work.
    I am a young professional(24) saving money to build a portfolio of dividend aristocrats (favoring dividend growth over high yields). Thanks to you, I realize the power of compound interest and increasing dividends; time is money:).

    Thanks for the opportunity to win these books.

      I agree! Andrew’s book is a gem for anyone. The younger you are when you read it the better. Combined with some of the other books, it provides an education to financial success.

    Hope to win Findependence day. I am currently reading Hallam’s book and own a 20 yr old (or so) version of the original Wealthy Barber (I prefer it to the new one). Though I suppose I could use a newer copy and pass my old one on to someone who needs it!
