Believe it or not, Spend Money has got the highest number of page views in my blog. Instead of the usual spending, lets talk about some good spending here, spends which have high ROI (Return on Investment).
Spending can be good sometimes. Especially when you want to save time. This is where the concept of Time value of money comes in. You can say ‘everything that can be learned, can be learned from the internet’, but if you want to take an organized approach, a well structured course is the best way to go and if you want to learn from someone’s rich experiences, Books are the Best, I see a book as a distilled knowledge of someone’s life experiences. And Gadgets and Tools as a medium of convenience.
Here are my top picks…
Courses on Personal Finance
The Complete Personal Finance Course by Chris Haroun from Udemy. The only course you would be needing for financial planning. No need to worry about the risk, it comes with a 30 day return guarantee if you’re not satisfied. There are several personal finance gurus in the market, but I didn’t find any good course in Indian perspective covering all aspects of personal finance. If you found something better, do mention in the comments for the public good.
Books on Investing (Basic to Advanced)
The following 5 books are a must read for every Investor. Not for a single time read, but for multiple times during ones lifetime. For me, every time it was a new experience altogether. I would recommend not to get into the Field without reading these 5 books. Read the reviews on Amazon by following the links below to know what other people have to say about these books.
- Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki

If there is one investment that I have done in my early twenties which I’m still proud of is.. Buying a Kindle. I like the long battery life and a distraction free environment that Kindle offers.
