Books that Everyone Should Read Before Getting a Job.


What Books Everyone Should Read Before Employment!

A short list of books that everyone should read before entering into the work force is a subject that is missed all the time. Where the school system falls short in many cases is just a basic understanding of finances and how money works. Inside the school system you can learn just about anything but nearly never learn about how to handle money.

It is extremely important to teach the youth how to handle money before they begin acquiring money and mishandling it. A basic background for this can be found in just a few short books. Now a-days, nearly all of these books can be found in an audiobook format, so don’t fret if you’re not the best reader!

The best basic Finance books around.

The most popular books in the financial world are overlooked and never read by most of the general public. Even though they carry the most accolades, many people never finish them.

Dave Ramsey’s The Total Money Makeover is probably the best fundamental, rooting, and basic finance book out there. It is a great read for us to build a great financial education upon.

Soldier of Finance by Jeff Rose would be the next big title to finish on that financial education journey. He teaches many great habits that can be formed for building your financial future.

After having this platform to build on. I would suggest picking up The Automatic Millionaire by David Bach, and then The Millionaire Next Door by Thomas Stanley. These will give you the vision of the future and what it could look like if you play by the rules set forth by all of these authors.

A Good Understanding of Business.

With the understanding of financials and how money works, it is important to have a good understanding of business. To understand how businesses operate and to build a good work ethic are important traits that everyone should have.

Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki and The E-Myth Revisited by Michael Gerber are basically the two holy grails of the business world. They teach the entrepreneurial mindset and what is the difference in an asset and a liability. They are a must read for anyone who desires to understand business.

The 4-Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss and The 80/20 Principle by Richard Koch. These books are on this list by default because of the business principles that they teach and the view point of why people start business’s in the first place.

A Book for Quitters.

Angela Duckworth’s Grit is a great read for anyone who needs the motivation to start. Angela is the Psychology Professor at the University of Pennsylvania and she has spent a great deal of her life studying why some people give up and others keep going. Grit, the power of passion and perseverance shows people why they shouldn’t give up and why you don’t need to be the most talented person to succeed.

I believe that this list is a must read for any teenager to read before entering into the employment line. It is also a great list for anyone that is wanting to get out of a financial rut and take control of their spending and lifestyle habits. Thank you for taking the time to read and I hope this helps out! Again, a lot of these books can be found on audible. So don’t worry if you’re not the best reader, it’s whats inside the books that is important to understand! Good Luck!
