I was on the verge of making a significant decision on financial investment before I picked up Nora A. Gay's book, Get Minted!: Learn How To Build Massive Wealth In The Midst Of Uncertainties.
Have you wondered why most people never build wealth, even though they have many streams of income? Nora A. Gay revealed several strategies that could be used to create wealth in times of uncertainty. She showed how to invest, spend, save, and develop your wealth in the current economic state. Also, she discussed how to handle debt and investment and create the mindset of wealth creation.
After reading this book, I realized the mistakes I've been making in wealth management, and I noticed why I have not been able to create enough money for the investments I wish to embark on. One thing I thought was positive about this book was that the author explained her ideas with the simplest forms of illustrations that an average reader could understand. For example, she used the fictional character of Daisy to explain every topic she discussed in the book, particularly when she discussed how to create wealth through debt. Though this is a non-fiction book, she managed to invent a strategy to help any reader relate to her ideology.
Furthermore, the author has enough experience to coach anyone on financial management and wealth creation. I felt she was qualified to write a book like this because, throughout the book, she always referred to an experience in her life. I particularly liked her experience with her friend, Hector.
Also, I loved how the book included some practical steps for readers to take. The ending part of each chapter had some homework for the reader. This homework often contains excellent questions that allow the reader to reflect on the topics. I considered this a positive point because every reader needs to practice these principles to get the best from the book.
The only thing I could consider as a negative point was that the book would mostly favor Americans. This is because most of the financial policies discussed by the author can only be related to the American people, especially the tax policies. I felt this aspect might limit the number of readers or audiences.
I considered this book professionally edited. Overall, I'll rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. This was because it was well executed, the illustrations were perfect, and there were no significant errors in the whole book. I'll keep referring to this book anytime I want to make a financial decision. I recommend this book to readers who enjoy self-help books on financial management.
