The Barefoot Investor

Synopsis

This is the only money guide you’ll ever need. That’s a bold claim, given there are already thousands of finance books on the shelves.So what makes this one different?Well, you won’t be overwhelmed with a bunch of ‘tips’ … or a strict budget (that you won’t follow).You’ll get a step-by-step formula: open this account, then do this; call this person, and say this; invest money here, and not there. All with a glass of wine in your hand.This book will show you how to create an entire financial plan that is so simple you can sketch it on the back of a serviette … and you’ll be able to manage your money in 10 minutes a week.You’ll also get the skinny on:• Saving up a six-figure house deposit in 20 months• Doubling your income using the ‘Trapeze Strategy’ • Saving $77,641 and wipe almost seven years off your mortgage • Finding a financial advisor who won’t rip you off • Handing your kids (or grandkids) a $140,000 cheque on their 21st birthday • Why you don’t need $1 million to retire … with the ‘Donald Bradman Retirement Strategy’.Sound too good to be true? It’s not.This book is full of stories from everyday Aussies — single people, young families, empty nesters, retirees — who have applied the simple steps in this book and achieved amazing, life-changing results.And you’re next.
