Book Review: "Financial Freedom GPS"

(Note: Since there have been folks who have asked my recommendations on business and finance books to read, I've decided to go ahead and start a new series of posts - book reviews).

Sorry to be out of the blog scene folks. Just getting back from my retreat here. It was nice to get away for awhile, it really gave me some time to really think. And, relax! :)

Barely getting back into town, it's been pretty chaotic. The phone has been ringing non-stop, lots of work to do. By far, fall and winter have been the busiest times of the year for me in the mobile home biz. And, already I'm working 2 potential mobile home deals. Work, work, work!

In any case, I thought I'd check in with you all and share with you a special book that just came out by my pal, Shae Bynes, called Financial Freedom GPS.

(Note: For those of you who are new to the blog, Shae was deemed one of the "Best and Brightest Women In Real Estate Investing").

So, what is the book about?

Well, the book is about a topic that is near and dear to my heart. And, that is the topic of financial freedom .

For me personally, the concept of financial freedom is so important. Why? It's simple. Financial freedom allows me to do the things I want to do, not have to do. And, Shae has laid it out here in this book step by step.

I have personally gone through the book. And, I must say - it's very well done and thorough. For those interested in achieving financial freedom, this is a book that will take you step by step and guide you on your path to get there.

What I really like about the book is that it really makes you think and opens up your mind to other ideas. Honestly, there were a couple ideas in the book that I had not been aware of. And, I especially enjoyed the resources and exercises Shae included in the book.

Now, I'm going to be honest with you. The path to financial freedom is not easy. And, it's really a process.

Basically, the transition involves from going full-time at a job to going part-time. In my opinion, the key is to slowly build up income streams to make things financially easier for you and your family.

Once the income streams start coming in, it will allow you to work less at a job that you have to (in order to pay the bills). And, in turn will allow you to focus your efforts in creating income streams so you can have more time to do the things you want to do, not have to do.

This is the transition many successful investors I have met have gone through. Some even continue to work part-time, not because they have to but because they want to. In fact, my mentors now all went through the same transition. One in particular still works part-time still enjoying the type of work they do.

(Note: I have 3 mentors for the mobile home biz. A local, regional, and national mentor - all together with over 50 years of experience in the mobile home biz. I've learned a great deal from each one, they have really helped me along the way. Mentors are definitely important members to have on your team).

For those who are interested in achieving financial freedom, this book is a great guide and road map. Shae has laid it out all here in the book, step by step. It's packed with a lot of useful information, resources and exercises to help you on your path to financial freedom.

(Note: It only took me 3 "Lonnie" deals for me to personally have a passive income stream to cover my housing payment. Seriously, the concept of financial freedom is all very simple. Though, it's the planning and the execution that takes work).

The book is very affordable, it's definitely worth the price. And, Shae is also including a Fast Action Bonus for those who order the book before Friday at midnight: 2 Live Q & A sessions where you can ask Shae any questions that you have after reading the course material!

For what it's worth, I really think this is a great book. And, the Fast Action Bonus Shae is offering just goes to show her support and caring nature for others.

If you've been thinking about and/or wanting to achieve financial freedom, I definitely recommend this book. Check out Financial Freedom GPS today!

p.s. Yes, this is an affiliate link. But, I assure you - I wholeheartedly believe in the book and believe it will help those on their path to financial freedom. Happy investing!
