One of my nieces is turning 21 next month, so I went shopping for a small 21st gift. In the end I decided to buy her something that might actually be useful for an independent, young woman - a copy of One million for Life by Ashley Ormond. It's a very easy-to-read practical guide to managing your money and sensible investing:
"...his strategy for wealth creation is sound and conservative, and involves careful money management to guarantee you a healthy income for the rest of your life. Based on a 5-step plan, which starts with owning your own house and paying it off, the book shares the secrets of maximising the opportunities offered by superannuation, investing outside super, protecting your assets and developing your money sense. The case studies and practical examples included make this road map to financial security easy to follow.
$1 Million For Life will appeal to investors aged 35 to 50 who are income earning and carrying debt, but who are keen to take control of their financial future."
I'm not sure that this is what she's expecting, but I'm hoping that she might at least read it ;)
