This is an extract from my book The Poor Man’s Guide to Financial Freedom: A Realistic, 10-Step Manual to Building Liberating Wealth on a Low to Medium Income.
W-wait a Minute!
Hang on, my reader yells. What makes you such an expert and why should I trust you? Are you some rich guy working in finance who will try to convince me to invest in his dodgy products? Are you someone with a high income who doesn’t know what it’s like to loiter in the supermarket of an evening, waiting for the staff to put discount stickers on the soon-to-expire meat? Why should I believe a word you say?
All excellent questions. I do not work in finance, nor do I have qualifications in that area. I am not a banker or a stockbroker or a financial advisor. I am a guy like you who waits for the discount stickers on the meat, and whose income has always ranged from low to medium.
How did I end up writing a book about personal finance?
