#12 Wealthy By Choice by Ilene Davis
Ilene Davis from ChoosingWealth. Find out more about the book Wealthy By Choice by Ilene Davis by reading the description below or clicking on the button.
“The book Im recommending is my own, but having read dozens of financial books, the reality is if someone doesn’t understand the WHY and the benefits of budgeting – that is – identifying how they WANT to ALLOCATE their available income, and then identify how they DID allocate it.
When the focus of budgeting is on spending, versus allocating, often spending becomes the primary focus and not making sure that at least a portion of each dollar of income is NOT spent.
My book focuses on the BENEFITS of making tradeoffs in daily choices to enable funds to be allocated to building wealth, and shows how even small changes in lifestyle can enable one to still have fun, but also build more wealth than many might otherwise imagine.”
