ESL Financial Strategies

Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
This is a classic and has been a best seller since 1937. It's all about how our mental vision and attitude creates our world and our financial life.This book should be read and studied by anyone who wants a more prosperous, abundant life.

Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki

I've read many of his books and although I am not financially ready to implement much of what he teaches, he is a writer of remarkable clarity and gives alternative views on what the financial industry would prefer most people believe. His info is eye-opening and a definite must in the library of anyone who wants to be financially savvy.

The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace C. Wattles

Here is a little book that was written at the turn of the 20th century that was in obscurity for a while and never had the same kind of accolades and attention that Think and Grow Rich attained. But it's a classic in it's own right. Clearly stated, easy to grasp, timeless principles about achieving anything in life.

How to Get Lots of Money for Anything Fast by Stuart Lichtman and Joe Vitale
A recent addition to the financial independence library, this ebook is about what the author calls Cybernetic Transposition. Don't let the title turn you off because the information and techniques contained within are pure gold.

Stuart Lichtman is a successful businessman/teacher who has developed powerful techniques to go past the subconscious blocks that prevent people from achieving success in all areas of life. If you want to achieve miracles in your life then this information is for you.

The Automatic Millionaire: The Powerful One-Step Plan to Live and Finish Rich by David Bach
This guy has been on Oprah and offers some great advice and tools to help you get your financial life in order. The bottom line is you will never reach any kind of financial independence unless you learn to pay yourself first. And he shows you how to do it automatically. I've used his advice and is not only starting to pay off financially but emotionally as well.

ING Direct

After you read the Automatic Millionaire you'll want to use this bank to set up an automatic savings program as part of your ESL teacher wealth building strategies. Go to ingdirect.com

Your Money or Your Life: Transforming Your Relationship With Money and Achieving Financial Independence by Joe Dominguez, Vicki Robin
This is a helpful and eye-opening book. It has a different take on money and financial independence than the above books.

It's a viewpoint that tempers the "gotta-make-a-zillion-dollars-to-be-happy" attitude of a lot of the financial independence books out there. Some of the exercises have had a permanent impact on my life.

The Complete Guide to Credit Repair by Bill Kelly Jr.
This little book will help you clean up your credit. You'll learn how credit works, how to use credit properly and how to improves and maintain new and existing credit accounts.

It provides sample letters and forms, how to stop credit agencies, how to avoid credit scams and how to get your finances back on track.

American Express Business Card
If you set yourself up as a business you can apply for this card even if you have poor credit. This is not really a credit card since you have to pay off the balance each month. But it's a convenience whenever your debit card isn't accepted like renting a car or checking into a motel.

Self Directed Roth IRA
