Starting off this weekend’s reading material….a big congratulations goes out to Andrew Hallam, where his book, Millionaire Teacher has become America’s #1 ranked personal finance book!
I recently read Millionaire Teacher and I must say, it’s a gem and a bargin for the price.
The theme that runs through this book is that most adults lack basic “financial literacy”. It’s not really our fault, our educational system and our financial system are inherently flawed and working against us. That doesn’t mean you or I should play victim to that environment, rather, take charge, learn and get control over your financial life. Nobody cares more about your money that you do, except maybe Andrew Hallam. Even before my review of Andrew’s book comes out, I encourage you to get a copy of Millionaire Teacher like I did so you too can learn how to avoid being schooled by the financial industry and others who want your money. My advice, keep that money for yourself, and get Andrew Hallam’s book to show you how!
Scotts Burns also provided a glowing review of the Millionaire Teacher.
Recently, Dividend Ninja provided readers with a stellar review of Millionaire Teacher. Ninja was spot on with this comment when discussing Andrew’s book:
“When Andrew set out to write this book, he wanted something not only informative and educational, but also entertaining and written in a style readers can relate to- and it shows!”
I hope to post my own review of Andrew’s book in the coming weeks.
Dividend Ninja was also very kind to provide me with some real estate on his website this week for a guest post entitled Getting started with DRIPs and SPPs – Part 1. In this post, I started sharing my experiences with dividend revinestment plans (DRIPs) with transfer agents. A couple of days ago, I posted Part 2 of this series. Stay tuned to Part 3 in this series on Dividend Ninja’s site, that article should be posted in the next couple of days!
Until next week folks, take some time to check out some of these fine articles.
Have a safe, happy and healthy weekend!

Michael James provided a fair but very positive review of Dan Bortolotti’s MoneySense Guide to the Perfect Portfolio.

Frugal Trader from Million Dollar Journey gave us some tips to calculate U.S. capital gains in a non-registered account. Great tips, but I took his advice years ago and put all my U.S. dividend-paying stocks in registered accounts. This way, I don’t have to worry about this issue.
