Before I get into my ‘story’ of “The Rich Life- Ten Investments for True Wealth” by Beau Henderson let me tell you I highly recommend this book. If you read no more than the first chapter applying the wisdom found within you will discover it is a book worth the investment.
I saw the title before seeing the cover; I assumed the book would be a typical “how to get financially rich” book I was wrong. Examining the cover, which depicted a scale balancing a clock on one side and money on the other, I assumed the book would be about balancing time and money; I was 15% correct. So here is my “The Rich Life” testimony / book review…
I am on vacation and I was not planning to read this book until late August for a September review post, I decided to peak at the book just to see what it was about. My peak ended at the end of chapter one when I decided to just read the book. I enjoy doing book reviews because I am exposed to new writers and a wealth of information but reading “The Rich Life” is why I really do book reviews, had it not been for being available to independent authors I would have never read such a valuable book. The reason why I continued to read the book is found in the title, this is a book about living richly no matter where you are in life financially thus making it a must read for everyone no matter how old or young.
I quickly went through the book so that I could write this review however, after a week of thinking I am stuck on chapter two. At 52 years of age I am in the middle of a career change, despite my being in debt “The Rich Life” by Beau Henderson has validated my decision to pursue my purpose while helping me to understand the big picture which includes financial stability. Chapter two-Investment #2 “Finding Your Life Purpose” is something I knew in my head but never put in writing.
There are 10 Investment principles discussed in this book, most do not directly address money. There are questions asked that allow you to assess where you are as a person which will help you make the necessary adjustments today, regardless of how much money is in your pocket.
Beau Henderson is a Financial Advisor and Success Coach if this book represents half of what he shares with people then not only is it worth the investment but seeing him in person may be worth the effort. In the meantime I am reading the book gleaning every syllable of information presented.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
