I have many, many, many personal finance books I need to pass on.
Most I have read, some were given me in semi-bulk by the author, and others cover topics I’ve already read at length.
That adds up to a bunch of solid personal finance books I can pass on to you as a gift.
9 books for 3 subscribers
I have decided to make this giveaway available only to DFA subscribers and am giving away nine books, to three separate subscribers, in packages of three.
Each package of books mixes the topics of personal finance, productivity, and entrepreneurship.
Book package 1:
- Can I Retire by my friend Mike Piper (author of 7 books and a simple investing website)
- The Other 8 Hours by Robert Pagliarini

- How To Get Control of Your Time and Your Life by Alan Lakein
Book package 3:

All these books are very solid reads that can help get you on the right track, or progress if you’re already moving in the right direction.

My #1 barrier to financial freedom
It’s not really fair to ask you to share your barriers if I’m not sharing mine, so here goes.
Right now my #1 barrier to financial freedom is that I don’t make enough money – yet.
I don’t consider myself lazy, but I could certainly work harder.
In our business I go after many things full-throttle, but avoid other biggies that could catapult earnings if exercised. Betsy and I talked about it and think the reason isn’t laziness as much as it’s a fear of commitment to something bigger than myself. I could wake up tomorrow and start pursuing goals that would likely double earnings by year end, but right now I value the slower pace more than the extra money.
Does that make me lazy? I guess it’s up for debate. Perhaps I should just commit to more work until that last bit of student loan debt is gone – then return to my balanced work/recreate lifestyle.
A lesser barrier is my inclination to spend money on random things I want.
I’m MUCH better about it now than I was before our debt free adventure, but it’s accurate to say I’m still tempted to spend on impulse; and I need to be even more disciplined.
