I’m still developing this page so bear with me while it still looks a bit scrappy… I wanted to get the resources out to you sooner rather than wait for the perfect look though 🙂

Here are some useful resources for saving, investing and side-hustling, all of which I have used (and liked) myself. I don’t earn any commission on links to investment-related items. That way there’s no conflict of interest. I may earn commission on other links if you click on them and buy things, which helps pay for this site etc. Those links are marked with a *.

The Simple Path to Wealth by JLCollins

JL Collins is the godfather of Financial Independence. Before most of us were born, he was saving 50% of his monthly income and investing it carefully. Here he explains his philosophy on life, saving and investing, with some memorable stories and a good dose of humour. You can get some advice in person if you go to a Chautauqua.
