Publisher's Summary

Set yourself up for life as early as possible and enjoy life on your terms!
Are you tied to a nine-to-five workweek? Do you work hard making someone else rich? Are you financially free - the sort of free that ensures you spend the best part of your day and week, and the best years of your life, doing what you want? Would you like to retire from wage-paying work within 10 years? Why not build and follow a plan that allows you to live the life of your dreams?
This isn't about saving up a nest egg. It's not about setting aside money for a "rainy day" or just accumulating an emergency fund. It's about building out a Financial Runway. It's about creating enough readily accessible wealth that you can survive without work for a year. Then five years. Then for life. Set for Life is a three-step guide that gives listeners the fiscal confidence they need to achieve early financial freedom. Listeners will learn how to:

Save more income - 50+ percent of it, while still having fun
Double or triple your income in three to five years
Secure "real" assets and avoid "false" ones that destroy wealth

Here's to fiscal confidence, here's to giving up a nine-to-five job, and here's to being set for life!

Excellent content read with enthusiasm

This book is not only information, but motivating too.

A few things I loved:

-house hacking. Buying a house and renting out rooms is a fantastic way to build wealth.

-comparing spending time to beat the stock market to selling bottles of water outside of a stadium is a great analogy.

-the case for DIYing. You don't need to outsource everything to an expert. You save money and learn.

-fancy degrees earn you more money partially because they lock you into working.

-the cost of commuting. I love that he brings up Mr. Money Moustache's article. I just wish he would have used MMM's best case scenario $.17/mile figure, where the math for commuting still stinks.

Useful info dictated by a non-annoying voice

I gained info I have not found elsewhere. The point of view and narration is easy to understand and worth the time to listen too.
