In 2020, life took on another meaning when the world was hit by a pandemic. We were all surprised by the sudden change. No one had known an unprecedented period that surprised even the most proactive leader. Now, almost after the pandemic, the world is trying to get back to normal, trying to make up for lost time and money. There is no better time to talk about money. So don’t miss reading books on finance right now. In fact, now is the best time to improve your personal finance and money management skills. Kikelomo Kuponiyi made things easier with his latest book, Your Money and You.
In no more than a hundred pages, Kuponyi takes a look at how you can make your money work better during these times. It explains your earnings, your savings, your investments, your budget, your loans, your donations, among others. How did you manage your money before now? Have you been careful and consistent in your spending? How do you perceive money? Do you know your financial personality type? What is your financial goal? Are they realistic? There are so many questions that this book provides answers to and some of them are highlighted above.
Since receiving this book I have read it more than once and every time I come back to it I find something new. Money management takes a lot of diligence and, as the author said, “the ability to manage and manage money effectively is sometimes innate. Sometimes it is taught at an early age and successfully absorbed. Sometimes this is not the case. This is where books like this come in. It can be difficult to stay consistent with saving or keeping tabs on investments. Kikelomo Kuponiyi sheds more light on how to go about it and stay in control of your financial game.
Reading useful books on finances and the like can be a challenge for some, but this book is one you will definitely come back to. It’s so easy to read, so easy to digest. It offers a solution for every problem mentioned therein. He gives insightful tips and money tips that you can live with. Most of us are guilty of investing in savings, as Robert Allen says, but Kuponyi explains in his book how to use your savings to invest. It lists the roles that both play in your personal finances and their relevance in building financial stability.
Kuponyi also shares the weak link that could undo the hard work of our financial health. She pays particular attention to donation as a factor of financial success. We all know that giving is an important part of receiving. Generosity is the crux of wealth, but it must be done wisely. The general advice provided at the end of the book is truths to be lived. It may sound overwhelming, but what a little inconvenience in return for a stable and healthy financial life. In addition, the uncertainty in which our world is shaken without provocation should be sufficient motivation.
Kikelomo Kuponiyi has done what most successful entrepreneurs do. They identify a problem and suggest solutions. The pandemic has created an economic vacuum for some people. It will take time to go back up. This book is one to help during this process. As Benjamin Franklin says, no investment in knowledge is a failure. Therefore, a good place to start is to read a book like this and improve your personal finance knowledge.
