Publisher's Summary

Set yourself up for life as early as possible and enjoy life on your terms!

Are you tied to a nine-to-five workweek? Do you work hard making someone else rich? Are you financially free - the sort of free that ensures you spend the best part of your day and week, and the best years of your life, doing what you want? Would you like to retire from wage-paying work within 10 years? Why not build and follow a plan that allows you to live the life of your dreams?

This isn't about saving up a nest egg. It's not about setting aside money for a "rainy day" or just accumulating an emergency fund. It's about building out a Financial Runway. It's about creating enough readily accessible wealth that you can survive without work for a year. Then five years. Then for life. Set for Life is a three-step guide that gives listeners the fiscal confidence they need to achieve early financial freedom. Listeners will learn how to:

  • Save more income - 50+ percent of it, while still having fun
  • Double or triple your income in three to five years
  • Secure "real" assets and avoid "false" ones that destroy wealth

Here's to fiscal confidence, here's to giving up a nine-to-five job, and here's to being set for life!

    "Excellent content read with enthusiasm"

    This book is not only information, but motivating too.

    A few things I loved:

    -house hacking. Buying a house and renting out rooms is a fantastic way to build wealth.

    -comparing spending time to beat the stock market to selling bottles of water outside of a stadium is a great analogy.

    -the case for DIYing. You don't need to outsource everything to an expert. You save money and learn.

    -fancy degrees earn you more money partially because they lock you into working.

    -the cost of commuting. I love that he brings up Mr. Money Moustache's article. I just wish he would have used MMM's best case scenario $.17/mile figure, where the math for commuting still stinks.

    "Useful info dictated by a non-annoying voice"

    I gained info I have not found elsewhere. The point of view and narration is easy to understand and worth the time to listen too.

    "Set for American life"

    This book is mainly geared for the average American office worker with little or no understanding of personal finance. However the book have some main good points and will set the foundation for anybody interested in improve its personal finances. The best key points I like from the book are: focus on lower your mayor fixed expenses (housing), clean up any bad debt before you start to invest or acquire any good debt. Understand what your goals are. Review your net worth regularly. Understand how you are spending your time and how that will impact your finances in the long term. Understand how leverage can accelerate you to faster reach financial freedom. I think the best advice from the book is about the false idea / trap of stock picking as a way to reach financial freedom which I think many investor experience over a lifetime. The bad thing with the book is that it is heavy geared towards American people/context and based on the authors own experience and circumstances. Example of a strange advice given in the book: "if you cannot house hack the move to another city where you can". Should both me and my wife quit our jobs, move to another country/city just so that we can house hack ? just becomes house hacking was working for the author does not mean it will work for all.

    "Amazing"

    By far the best book I've heard or read in my life. This book should be required reading every year from grade school through high school so that it and its values and it's lessons are ingrained and every young person's mind before they hit the real world.

    "Solid Strategy"

    It's a very doable strategy to cut expenses and save more money. I think it would be difficult for most people, but anyone could benefit from from hearing his ideas, especially those who want to stretch the dollars they earn. The best part about owning Real Estate, that he barely touches on, is the business write offs and expenses which make the strategy of building wealth through Real Estate and house hacking even more profitable in the long run. Would definitely recommend.

    "Great book!"

    This book provides an outlook of a possible early retirement or a life where money is not a problem because expenses are kept at a minimum. I think it is well written because it goes in to great deatail. I will listen to it a few more times. Thank you for taking the time to write this book. Knowledge is meant to be shared.

    "Will be recommending to peers"

    Solid easy read. Covers much needed concepts, but not too technical. Lays out a basic gameplan to reach financial freedom. I considered writting a book on the topic and this covered everything I would have.
