“To love. To count. How to build strong and healthy relationships based on financial independence “, Svetlana Shishkina

Well-known blogger Svetlana Shishkina raises a sensitive topic – finances in relationships. Talking about money is unpleasant – it’s not as romantic as we would like.

You will learn about budget planning and property management during pregnancy, in difficult times for the family or in case of divorce.

“Money in your head. Strategy for a Million “, Anatoly Sokolov

An excellent book on financial thinking. There is no esotericism here, but the author is convinced that our attitudes and thoughts directly affect well-being. How do rich people think? Where to find motivation to earn more? Why can some people afford to shop and travel with a modest income, while others are constantly in debt? You will find answers to many questions, and at the same time you will be able to work out your own negative patterns with the help of practical exercises. All this does not eliminate the need to create savings and count money, but sometimes it is enough to “tweak” some psychological settings to see an impressive result.


“Retire at 35”, Babaykin

This book is based on the philosophy of the popular US movement FIRE, whose followers earned their capital under the age of 35 and then retired to travel, do their favorite thing and pay more attention to family. Sounds fantastic? Absolutely not. The author of this book lives on investment income and feels great without working in the classical sense of the word. Even if after reading the book you will not immediately become a successful investor, at least you will be able to understand how to organize your life and lead a personal budget to work less and earn more.
