Why you might consider investing your time reading the MYFE series of books
The advantages of reading the MYFE series of books
Freedom from financial worry requires a plan. A realistic, manageable and flexible plan. Book 1, along with the other books in the Managing Your Financial Expectations (MYFE) series, will give you that plan. The MYFE books help make saving and investing simple for everyone, no matter where you are on your financial journey.
Your saving and investment journey is one of life’s trickiest, fraught with unseen potholes. The books are written to help you identify and avoid these traps.They are structured for Generation X and Millennial UK resident citizens. Many of the examples and graphics along with all the tax, pension / ISA, debt, and investment regulations are UK specific. The saving and investing concepts, however, are universal.
You’ll be amazed at how simple the plan is. And it will only take half-an-hour of your time once a year. That said, it is not a ‘get-rich-quick’ plan (they don’t exist). Even if you’re having difficulty saving, let alone investing, these books offer credible and practical guidance.
The books are written in an easy to understand and jargon-free manner. Important concepts are illustrated with supportive diagrams, and financial regulations are explained in a non-technical narrative. In short, another significant benefit of reading these books is their style; they are accessible (my kids particularly loved the Moments of Truth and FAQ sections).

The best time to start is NOW
Most of us are too busy living life, or just surviving it, to consider our financial futures, telling ourselves that financial planning can wait. That’s a mistake. Time is your greatest ally in securing a better financial future – and at less financial risk!
If you’re a member of Generation X (born between 1965 and 1980) or a Millennial (born between 1981 and 1996) – these books are for you. You’re probably working full-time or in a mixture of jobs / roles. Either way, I hope you’ll appreciate the independent and unbiased narrative the MYFE series of books offer. As Book 1 explains: time is of the essence. The sooner you start saving and investing, the healthier your finances will be when you need to access them.
You may think you haven’t got time to read these books, so let me put it to you this way: if you don’t read about saving and investing now, you’ll have plenty of time wishing you had over the 20 plus years you’re expected to live in retirement.
If you perceive the prospect of saving and investing as intimidating, or frankly just boring, please allow these books to prove you wrong on both counts. All the books are short but comprehensive – they outline the key information you need. They’re structured to inspire you to take the necessary actions today to achieve a more financially secure tomorrow.
