Six books I highly recommend
I have always loved books. They have such power to change our lives and move our thinking in new directions. And that is a huge key to financial freedom, thinking about money, wealth, and how you can create more of both, differently than you ever have before.
By no means is this list exhaustive, but each of these is a great place to start for anyone!
The Richest Man in Babylon
My favorite book of all time. No library on wealth building for the “normal” person would be complete without this classic parable. The principles taught are basic and timeless at the same time. Clason uses storytelling and takes you on a mental journey through Babylon while instilling the principles of building wealth at the same time.
You will read this a few times.

100 Baggers: Stocks That Return 100-to-1 and How to Find Them
I read this book once a year. It is that good.
This book is about 100-baggers. These are stocks that return $100 for every $1 invested. That means a $10,000 investment turns into $1 million. Chris Mayer can help you find them. It sounds like an outrageous quest with a wildly improbable chance of success. But when Mayer studied 100-baggers of the past, definite patterns emerged.
