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

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.

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

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

  6. 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. :)

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

  8. 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.

  19. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete

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

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  72. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  74. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Sounds like a great book to have and read!

    ReplyDelete
  76. This is definitely an interesting book.
