Our March 2018 Read

What The Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! by Robert T. Kiyosaki.

Simple, sound and insightful, Kiyosaki’s book is a long-time bestseller and focuses on financial literacy and making your money work for you. The book compares the habits of a “rich dad” (Kiyosaki’s best friend’s father) and a “poor dad” (Kiyosaki’s own father). 

I am concerned that too many people are focused too much on money and not on their greatest wealth, which is their education. If people are prepared to be flexible, keep an open mind and learn, they will grow richer and richer through the changes. If they think money will solve the problems, I am afraid those people will have a rough ride. Intelligence solves problems and produces money. Money without financial intelligence is money soon gone.”

March 2018: The 100-Year Life by Andrew Scott and Lynda Gratton’s

Did you know that life expectancy increases at the rate of 2 to 3 years every decade?

There’s all kinds of implications of living a longer life: we get to spend more time with our families and explore unforeseen hobbies in retirement. But there’s also the more complex issue of financially planning our longer future: living for 100 years hasn’t exactly been the norm in previous generations, so we don’t have a clear blueprint to follow.

Andrew Scott and Lynda Gratton’s ‘The 100-Year Life’ provides exactly such a blueprint; helping us tackle the exciting but ever so slightly terrifying prospect of living longer than ever.
