Living paycheck to paycheck can be extremely stressful especially towards the end of the month trying to make sure all your bills are paid and there is food on the table. If you have been in this situation or are currently in it, you may seem like you are in a hole that you can’t get yourself out of. But there is hope! No, it will not change overnight (I really wish it could) but if you take small baby steps, you can have financial freedom and hope for your future!

The Intelligent Investor: The Definitive Book on Value Investing. A Book of Practical Counsel Benjamin Graham  

This classic text is annotated to update Graham’s timeless wisdom for today’s market conditions…

The greatest investment advisor of the twentieth century, Benjamin Graham, taught and inspired people worldwide. Graham’s philosophy of “value investing” — which shields investors from substantial error and teaches them to develop long-term strategies — has made The Intelligent Investor the stock market bible ever since its original publication in 1949.

Over the years, market developments have proven the wisdom of Graham’s strategies. While preserving the integrity of Graham’s original text, this revised edition includes updated commentary by noted financial journalist Jason Zweig, whose perspective incorporates the realities of today’s market, draws parallels between Graham’s examples and today’s financial headlines, and gives readers a more thorough understanding of how to apply Graham’s principles.”
