Overview of the “I Will Teach You To Be Rich”
Today’s generation is focused on earning and retiring quickly. As good as it sounds, most of them have no idea what to do. However, before earning, one should know how to save! Many young people live from gig to gig with no plans or savings. And the investment they put in is five times more than what they earn.
To help such youngsters, Mr. Ramit came up with an awesome idea. The idea is a book called I will teach you to be rich. It is a 6-week program guide with no BS, that explains finances & money management. It teaches us how to negotiate with banks, manage, spend, and invest our money. The tactics included can change one’s life regarding money, and it’s quite helpful for youngsters in their 20s-30s.
Manage Your Credit Cards
Use credit cards wisely. Most of the time, a credit card allows us to buy valuable items that we could not afford otherwise. However, the debt and interest usually increase with time, which we must pay later. And one of the worst habits one can develop is spending more than earning. The first step to becoming rich is to keep a good credit record. Improve your credit rating. Credit cards have details, which include your personal information, & credit score, which shows how likely you are to repay the loan. The better the credit score, the less risk you pose. Avoid card-related charges, focus on credit limits and payback periods, and start repaying your debts.
Optimize Your Bank Accounts
A Bank account is the base of your finances. In this part, Sethi describes how to choose the correct account. Why should there be separate accounts (such as savings and current)? He mentions about bank fees, their limits, and how to negotiate. The author explains how choosing the right bank can benefit their finances.
Get Ready to Invest
According to him, the earlier you start investing, the faster you get rich. This is a fact because you reap the benefits as soon as you earn. He talks about the types of investment accounts, their difference, how to utilize them, and more. He also mentions about investment and retirement plans.
Adopt Conscious Spending
Be very cautious of your spending habits. Do not just buy something because you can afford it or find it cool. It is important to make a plan of your monthly or weekly spending. It acts as a reminder & and helps in the allocation of your money. This part explains the difference between conscious and the so-called cheap spenders.
Automate those Money Transfers
Try to automate your money transfers, which means keep it on autopilot. Pre-approve or pre-schedule the transfer of your funds. It is a set-and-forget-it method that helps you pay bills and other dues on time. It saves you from interest and keeps your credit score good. Mr. Ramit talks about utilizing 1 to 2 hours a month to manage your money.
Know What to Invest in and How
Knowing where to invest and how to do so is quite important. Even though investing in stocks and crypto is considered sexy, very few can gain profits from it. It is not just randomly selecting a stock that you find hot! It’s more than that. It requires deep knowledge and accurate observation skills. According to Mr. Ramit, the earlier you start investing, the better. This part of the book highlights how investing is not a child’s play. It explains how to get the most with little work. Hard work is the key to success, but smart work is what successful people do. This chapter includes management, creating portfolios, and investing in stocks.
