1. Book : How to Get Rich and Retire Early

How to Get Rich and Retire Early

We all have some talents things we are good at.
We also have a list of things that we would like to do things that we enjoy doing things like reading, travelling, listening to music etc.
Then there are activities that give us a sense of purpose activities like teaching or helping a stranger. Doing these things makes us feel great about ourselves.
These are causes that we connect with.
And then we have our busy work schedules that keep us from doing all these things.
Most of us accept this reality and move on with life. Our dreams stay dreams.
We tell ourselves that the day will come when we will retire and do things that we are passionate about.

2. Book : Rich Dad Poor Dad

Rich Dad Poor Dad is a 2000 book written by American businessman, author and investor Robert Kiyosaki. It advocates financial independence and building wealth through investing, real estate investing, starting and owning businesses, as well as increasing one’s financial intelligence to improve one’s business and financial aptitude. Rich Dad Poor Dad is written in the style of a set of parables, ostensibly based on Kiyosaki’s life. Kiyosaki stresses the ownership of high value assets that produce cash flow, rather than being an employee in the book.

3. Book : The Warren Buffett Way

The Warren Buffett Way, a book by author Robert Hagstrom, outlines the principles of value investing practiced by successful investor Warren Buffett.

Warren Buffett is the most famous investor of all time and one of today’s most admired business leaders. He became a billionaire and investment sage by looking at companies as businesses rather than prices on a stock screen. The first two editions of The Warren Buffett Way gave investors their first in–depth look at the innovative investment and business strategies behind Buffett’s spectacular success. The new edition updates readers on the latest investments by Buffett. And, more importantly, it draws on the new field of behavioral finance to explain how investors can overcome the common obstacles that prevent them from investing like Buffett.  New material includes:  How to think like a long–term investor – just like Buffett Why “loss aversion”, the tendency of most investors to overweight the pain of losing money, is one of the biggest obstacles that investors must overcome. Why behaving rationally in the face of the ups and downs of the market has been the key to Buffett’s investing success Analysis of Buffett’s recent acquisition of H.J. Heinz and his investment in IBM stock  The greatest challenge to emulating Buffett is not in the selection of the right stocks, Hagstrom writes, but in having the fortitude to stick with sound investments in the face of economic and market uncertainty. The new edition explains the psychological foundations of Buffett’s approach, thus giving readers the best roadmap yet for mastering both the principles and behaviors that have made Buffett the greatest investor of our generation.

Podcasts to listen to

A podcast is a digital medium consisting of an episodic series of audio, video, PDF, or ePub files subscribed to and downloaded through web syndication or streamed online to a computer or mobile device. The word is a neologism and portmanteau derived from “broadcast” and “pod” from the success of the iPod, as audio podcasts are often listened to on portable media players.

Some of good Podcasts to listen to…

4. Freakonomics Radio

In their books “Freakonomics,” “SuperFreakonomics,” and “Think Like a Freak,” Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J.
