A book that helps its readers re-organize their finances better, Jago Investor: Change Your Relation With Money is full of useful tips and strategies on money management and financial planning.
Summary Of The Book
Jago Investor: Change Your Relation with Money is a book that instructs readers on how to keep their personal finances in perfect order. The book aims to eliminate financial illiteracy, as the author believes that most people are very unfamiliar with the concept of money management, as schools and colleges don’t prepare students for the same. As a result, they take decisions that can boomerang and hit them back in the long run. Others get so lost in the myriad financial concepts that come with investing in insurance, mutual funds, or stocks that they simply give up.
The book emphasises on the importance of financial education, and the author writes the book from the perspective of a novice dabbling in investments, rather than a financial expert. He has also tried to steer clear of providing advice on various financial products that are available in the market. Rather, the author, Manish Chauhan, tries to bring about a change in the quality of financial thinking on the part of the reader.
In order to ensure that this is achieved, this 180-page book touches on topics as diverse as the creation of wealth, protecting one’s family against bad financial times, the importance of setting goals, and the dearly-held myths about the business of making money.
One of the highlights of the book is the focus laid on how to use information technology to organize personal finances. The author underlines the importance of managing documentation to prevent clutter and unnecessary confusion. The book has seven chapters, and these are: Burning the Jungle, Get Set Goal, Have You Protected Your Garden?, Bursting Your Myths About Money, Simplifying Your Financial Life, Change Your Relationship With Money, and 10 Things To Do To Make Your Financial Awesome.
The book tellingly makes the point that the financial world is rarely a stable one. Things change overnight, new products come in, old ones get tossed out, and the economy may dictate new financial plans. However, financial principles and strategies that help people keep their personal finances in order never really change.
