An Average Joe's Pursuit for Financial Freedom (w/$100 PayPal Giveaway)

Disclosure: Mail4Rosey was not compensated to help promote this post and is not responsible for prize delivery.

Mail4Rosey is excited to join Advertise with Bloggers and Adventures of My Family of 8 to bring you this giveaway. What do you do when you have extra money? Do you save it, invest it, spend it? We dabble a bit with investing, and it's not always a win for us, but it is fun! I'd love to learn more about it, and learn more about how to work smarter with my money (not harder with my time). Michael Warren Munsey has written a self-help book that can get you (and me) on the road to financial freedom.

  book cover

An Average Joe’s Pursuit for Financial Freedom offers a different perspective on money than what is traditionally taught by our parents and in our school systems. The reason there is such a discrepancy between the wealthy and the poor is due to the difference in the way money is perceived. We are not born with the ability to maintain wealth: it is something that is learned. The knowledge of knowing how to make money work to generate passive income is something that anyone can learn as long as they are disciplined. An Average Joe’s Pursuit for Financial Freedom is based on practical concepts and discusses the problems that the majority of us face with our personal finance. The concepts in this book are based on theory by an author that practices what he writes about.

About the author: Michael Munsey works in the oil industry and resides in Houston, Texas. He received his undergraduate degree from Murray State University in May of 1995. While working to climb the corporate ladder within Halliburton Energy Services, Michael enrolled in the EMBA program at Rice University in 2005. After earning his MBA, he had a major change in the way he perceives money, which he shares in. Be sure to check out FreeAverageJoe.com for more book information about this book.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Winning a hundred dollars would be a great way to start!

alissa apel said...

Brian Miller said...

Sandee said...

My parents taught me about money. Credit and saving. How to live within our means. It was a great lesson that has served me very well.

Have a fabulous day. :)

Diane Estrella said...

Grateful to know Bobbie and a big Congrats to her hubby. Wishing him the best of success on his book!

I think more needs to be taught to our kids as they're growing up so they don't face the same financial struggles my generation faces routinely. Of course, if the economy would get better, it might not be so hard for so many of us.

Aimee Fauci said...

You can never learn too much about $ handling.

Masshole Mommy said...

I wish my parents had taught me ore about money when I was younger. I am not making that mistake with my own kids.

debdenny said...

Love to win. Heard a bit about this book

Kristi Maloney said...

Yep. I've heard about this book on other blogs too. I think it sounds interesting!! I tweeted!

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Oh Rosey! Thanks for the nice Mother's Day greetings. Sure hope your Day was full of love. Yes, my granddaughters love to rifle through my jewelry. One even is so painstakingly careful to put it back where it belongs. Fun!

♥, Renae

Lindsey Paris said...

Don't we all want financial freedom? As soon as we are clear of the student loan, it's HOME FREE!!

Liz Mays said...

This is nice to hear that it's attainable for all of us. Sounds like a nice e-book full of helpful tips to get there.

JJ said...

That is a wonderful idea, especially for young people who are presently caught in a quandary.

The Puzzled Palate said...

Learning how to balance is the key! SAVE SAVE SAVE!

Krystal Butherus said...

great giveaway! that would be an awesome start to learning to save. :)

Anonymous said...

We try to have a plan in place for extra money before we get it. Just because it's easy to spend it! But if we have a plan in place, then we don't blow it. For instance, right now our plan for extra money is to have our home painted. And then, after that, go on a nice weekend getaway! This book sounds great!

Krystyn @ Really, Are You Serious? said...

It's so nice to have financial freedom. It helps our house be less stressful.

Pam said...

Sounds like a great eBook. Financial freedom is a goal for many.

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Sounds like a great opportunity, especially for some young folks who are struggling to keep their heads above debt. Great giveaway offer! Thanks.

I hope you had a wonderful Mothers' Day.

Karen Koblan said...

That looks like a great book with helpful tips. I could definitely use some help with saving!

Amy @ Marvelous Mommy said...

Thanks for the great giveaway! I entered!

Louida Martin said...

Awesome giveaway! I know I could learn a thing or two from this book.

Theresa Mahoney said...

Hubby is the one who handles all the finances here, but I do think this would be a great book for him to learn a few more tips of the trade!

Almost Precious said...

Sounds like a great book. Nice to know that the author works in the oil industry, my hubby worked for Texaco as a petroleum engineer but not in Texas. He started out in southern California and later his job and position took him to Trinidad in the West Indies, Quito Ecuador and then to Angola Africa.

AMBER EDWARDS said...

This sounds like a great book to read for insights into achieving our own personal financial freedom. I like that it focuses on the average joe and not someone born into a higher position.

becca said...

I just saw this on another blog. I am definitely buying it to read.

Scott said...

This should be required reading for all kids to make sure they are prepared for the real world.

Jennifer Zimmerman said...

We try to plan, but usually we just wind up saving so we're prepared for the next big car crisis or orthodontist's bill.

Kecia said...

We could totally use a new outlook on money. I want to have more passive income coming in so we can work less and still enjoy life!

Ai Sakura said...

Proper financial-planning is definitely something I'd need to work on! I'm not that great with numbers so I tend to just brush it aside :P

Ai @ Sakura Haruka

Kristal Deane said...

Maybe I should use some of my extra money and invest in this book. From what I've read here and from other bloggers, it looks like it's worth it. Thanks for sharing and hosting! :)

Rachael Ebner said...

I'm working toward financial freedom with my Beachbody business. I will look into getting this book for advice.

Holy Ghost Writer said...

A 100 can be stretched far

Shell said...

What a great contest! I could use some more tips on financial freedom.

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

This is a great giveaway. It might seem like a small amount to some but every little bit helps to pay off the debt.

Sarah-Louise Bailey said...

Sounds like a great book - always good to more when it comes to finance. Thank you for a wonderful giveaway as well. x

BrettBMartin said...

Janell said...

I try to help my kids learn about money. They get an allowance and I love it when they save towards a goal.

Jinxy and Me said...

This sounds like a super helpful book. Great giveaway too!

Anonymous said...

That sounds like a good book to give my oldest son. We always try to invest our extra money - some with safe investments some with risky ones!

Christie C said...

Wow, money + financial freedom! Looks like the beginning of a great future!

valmg said...

The high schoolers in my town do have to take something called a financial literacy course that gives a general overview.

valmg said...

Sounds like a book many could benefit from. I like that it sounds like it's in easy to understand terms. - Jenn @ The Rebel Chick

Pam said...

I will have to take a look at this book and think about getting it for my kids. They probably could benefit the most.

Virginia Higgins said...

One of my Dad's money lessons has always stuck with me, and that was, "If you can't afford to lose it, you can't afford to loan it." That has proven valuable.

Alice Chase said...

Learning how to properly handle money is something everyone can benefit from and teach our children about. It looks like a very beneficial read.

My Pretty Brown Blog said...

I've heard of this book! I think everyone could benefit from it.

Teresa Moody said...

My mom has taught me a lot of financial stuff over the years. I would love to read this book too!

Ronnie E. said...

Interesting concept to the book.. I'd love to learn more about money management to reach a point of increasing my savings to millions. :) Maybe the giveaway is a start!

Casa Vilora Interiors said...

Interesting book! That is definitely my goal too! I'll take a closer look

Tracey said...

Interesting book. I think financial freedom is high on the list for a lot of us!

Melanie Burbage said...

Good topic, I know several people even as adults that aren't very good with their money. It's such an important thing to learn and keep up with throughout life!

Ashley Robinson said...

Looks like that would be a helpful book. I always try to save extra money right now, because I'm trying to beef up my "emergency fund."

Keikilani Jackson said...

Sounds like this would be a helpful book. Your view on money does make such a difference.

mail4rosey said...

We didn't have anything until college. I'm glad to hear they're teaching about it earlier than that now.

Dina said...

I think this would be a great book to give to graduates or newlyweds! Thanks.

Lisa Collins said...

Sounds like a great book and thanks for an awesome giveaway!

Jenni said...

This really sounds like a great book! Always looking to read things like this and I love that it's called "Average Joe's" Pursuit.

Marni Mutrux said...

That's a great giveaway! $100 can go pretty far :)

Nikki said...

I really need to read this book! I stopped wishing to win the lottery and now I just wish for financial stability.

StacieinAtlanta said...

This sounds like an interesting read. I wish they taught more about finance in school to our kiddos.

Unknown said...

From BabsProjects: I think this book would be of a great help to me. Although I am pretty good when it comes to saving, I am sure there will be helpful tips.

Janeane Davis said...

It is important for us to make financial literacy as important a part of life as reading and mathematical study.

Shell Feis said...

This would be great for my brother, he's graduating high school this year & knows nothing about money. I don't want him to learn the hard way!

Fabulous Perks said...

This sounds like a really great ebook. What an awesome giveaway.

Marina@EBMR said...

We all need help with our finances. If only more people would be more careful and wise!!

Jaredamy said...

I can always appreciate some financial guidance. They should focus more on this in schools rather than weird math that is useless.

Savory Experiments said...

I save extra money. There is no such thing as "extra" money! Lol.

Ashley Gill said...

I'm not one that has a lot of money to work with, and I think thats because I have urges tos pend it. I need to learn about investing and/or saving more!

Coolmoms Cooltips said...

I hadn't heard about tis book before but need to get it to have all the facts on ensuring we keep debt free!

Denise Gabbard said...

I hope that the author dumbed this down, for lack of a better term, to the level where average people can actually benefit from it. After all, he is likely a highly paid cog in the Halliburton machine. There is a huge disparity between that level of income and what a person with very limited income (the millions of displaced workers who cannot find a job, for instance...I know too many in this category) can afford to invest or save.

Joanna Sormunen said...

Sounds like a great book to have and read!

Colette S said...

This is definitely an interesting book.
