When was the last time you laughed about your finances?

Yes, you read that right... when was the last time you laughed about your finances?

Recently, I've been laughing every night.

My mom passed along the book, The Wealthy Barber Returns written by David Chilton. She grew up with his first book, The Wealthy Barber, which spoke to how important it is to pay yourself first. That means, when you get your pay check, you pay yourself first, BEFORE you pay Telus, Rogers, Shaw, or the other bills you may have.

In The Wealthy Barber Returns, Chilton stresses NOT getting into to debt and living within your means. He clearly states that what are in the best interests of the banks, are NOT in your best interests. Line of credits, credit cards...if these type of debt vehicles are used poorly, it can be hazardous to your financial freedom in retirement. Debt in retirement can be a serious financial issue.

What I love most about this book is Chilton's humour. I don't think I've laughed this hard in a boring "finance" book ever!

Take for example one of his quotes by Winston Churchill, "Saving is a fine thing. Especially when your parents have done it for you." Now this is tongue and cheek, he is not advocating this method of savings...or belittling inheritances. What I love about it, is it's real-ness!

For young people today this is a MUST read book.

Who doesn't love to learn and laugh at the same time.
