Most of us have experienced a time where we have learned a financial principle or tool and said, “I wish I had learned that before I entered the real world!” Joseph Sangl used to be broke until he resolved to learn everything he possibly could about good financial management. In his first book, I Was Broke. Now I’m Not., Joe shares his journey and the tools he used to become financial free. In this new book, Joe equips young people with the practical principles and tools that will help them avoid making major financial mistakes.
Many of us have made financial mistakes and we know how hard it is to CURE them. Joe’s goal with What Everyone Should Know About Money Before They Enter THE REAL WORLD is to help PREVENT the mistakes in the first place! Reviewers of this book have expressed a consistent theme – this book is applicable to young people and they wish they had read a book like this when they were just entering the real world. Another surprising theme has emerged, however. People who have been in the real world for many years are saying that it has even helped them immensely!
Note From Joe
I am so excited about the opportunity to write this book. As I travel the nation speaking and teaching about personal finances, it has become incredibly clear to me that there is a severe lack of personal finance education in our schools and families. I want to see people live financially free lives, and helping people prevent financial mistakes is essential to ensuring to our passion of “helping others accomplish far more than they ever thought possible with their personal finances.”
