Personal Finance Book Recommendations for 2019

There has probably been one time or another that you’ve joked about wishing you had a money tree growing in your backyard. While you can’t plant a tree that magically sprouts dollar bills, you can learn how to boost your income and investing to improve your finances over time.

There’s a book release this summer that can help you get started on the journey to growing your wealth. Plant Your Money Tree, by Michele (Mish) Schneider, will open your eyes to better understanding the U.S. economy.

In her book, Schneider breaks down six market phases into plain language that’s easy for readers to understand: bullish, caution, distribution, bearish, recuperation and accumulation.

Most importantly, she answers the question, why does this matter to me? as she connects all of this back to your personal finances. She demonstrates how to identify these phases and understand their interconnectivity.

Schneider writes in a conversational tone that makes it easy to follow along and read. She proves that anyone can grasp the basics of the economy and how to grow wealth, regardless of their financial and educational background. She seeks to empower readers with the knowledge to be more confident in managing your personal finances. 

In Plant Your Money Tree, you’ll learn how to make informed decisions about your money, including: 

  • What to do with your money
  • How to help your money grow
  • When and how to make financial life decisions, such as a career change, business expansion, buying a house and increasing your monthly savings inputs
  • How to invest in the future and capitalize on social trends
  • How to manage and maximize your existing portfolio and 401K

Schneider also offers the “glass is half full” perspective that there is no such thing as a losing market. Her strategy shows investors how to reap profits in any market condition – even those that other may deem a loss. Whether you’re just getting started in your financial journey or you consider yourself a seasoned expert, there is something to learn from Plant Your Money Tree.

And while you wait for Plant Your Money Tree to be released in May, check out this list of 2019’s top personal finance books.
