Marcus Arce gives advice on how to build personal wealth and achieve financial independence regardless of how late one starts or how poor one is to begin with.
This advice does not come in the shape of complicated formulas or lengthy explanations of how the stock market works, but it is very simple; nobody needs a degree in Economics to understand the realistic plan laid out and tested by the author himself.
He has first-hand experience with building wealth from zero – actually, less than zero – because he was 35 years old and 50k US-$ in debt when he started to change his way of dealing with money. It took him 15 years to get to his first million, he claims, and there were no dirty tricks or criminal activities involved, no lottery win or inheritance came his way.
Originally from a humble background (his parents were Mexican immigrants, working very hard for very little money), he has not forgotten how unlikely it seems for the average person to achieve such a goal.
The material is not presented at its best; there are many typos (as I have come to expect from many free ebooks). But it is short and, in a way, interesting enough, even if you (like me) do not plan on getting rich anytime soon. The book provided some distraction on my otherwise monotonous trips to and from work, and therefore, it was not a waste of time.
