We can all agree on something here … DEBT SUCKS!
Ever since going into debt, I have strived to do everything I could to get out of it. The hard part, at least for me, was trying to figure out how to get out.
How do you get out of debt? What are the BEST steps to follow? Why Do I feel alone in all of this?
I remember the feeling of having the debt piling up. Between regular bills, credit card interest (as well as all the debt interest), keeping food on the table, doctor visits, and so on, I felt as though there was no possible way to get ahead.
It seemed like I kept drowning and could never get any air.
That is when I started reading more on budgeting and finance. I actually really enjoyed it, and I am happy to say I ultimately became DEBT FREE!
One of the books I have been recommending to everyone is I Will Teach You To Be Rich by Ramit Sethi.
Why have I been recommending it? Well, that’s easy. Most of my own personal budget includes many of his suggestions (I say most because I have two other authors I follow too. If you are interested in them, let me know, I more than willing to share).
Want to know something really amazing?
Becoming debt-free has been a HUGE WEIGHT off my shoulders. If you are interested in learning more about finances, savings, and achieving a debt-free life, I Will Teach You To Be Rich is the book for you!

The Good & The Bad
Not sure about you, but I like to know the pros and cons (or the good and bad) of most things I’m considering buying.
Like every product on the market, you can always find something wrong with it. I’ve found with authors that some of them are great at writing and others are not.
Personally, I like how Ramit writes. It’s nice when someone tells you how it is and cuts out all the BS. It’s a straightforward way of thinking and is something I really did enjoy.
Automating Your Finances
You might hear people saying this isn’t a good thing. But I have gotten the most out of this. It’s much easier to do than you may think. You will NEVER pay a late fee again, and you save a TON of time. I didn’t do this at first because I thought it was stupid. After I completed reading the book (for a second time), I started to consider it. Now, I’m so glad that I did!
Learning How To Invest
Once you get through your debt, you might want to know what to do with your money. Investing has always been an interest of mine, but I never fully understood it. Again, I look towards three authors for learning this budgeting and investing stuff, but this book is what got me started. It’s not as difficult as you think it is. Ramit even shares what he does, and it’s SUPER EASY.
This is the most exciting part for me. I remember that I actually will feel lighter after I realized that I no longer was enslaved to credit cards, banks, and government. Just know, it’s amazing and is something I want to help you achieve as well.
Does Not Happen Overnight
This is something you need to come to grasp. Becoming debt-free, automating finances, investing, and so on takes time. A lot of time. I mention this here because there is no such thing as a “Get Rich Quick” or a magic bean that will get you out of your debt. But, once you developed a plan, stick to it. You will be amazed at what you can all achieve.
I will say that spending less than $10 for this book is totally worth it. But I know a lot of people that would like to get this information for free. If that is you, then go to your local library and see if this book is there to rent. Otherwise, buy it, the price is really not that bad, and I know you will get a lot out of it. To think of it another way, you need to learn how to manage your money. You aren’t doing anything about it, which is a small price to pay to get a plan.
I’ll make it easy for you, Stop thinking about it and buy the dang book.
Who is IWT For?
This book is for everyone. Literally, EVERYONE.
I purchased the first version of this book and read it in less than a month. I have read many books on finance, and this one is one of my favorites mainly because it’s easy to read and understand.
Once this new version came out, I decided to purchase that one too. And that is why I’m now writing this review. I know it can help you with your finances and achieving your dreams!
The difference is that you only have to purchase one book! Your welcome. This newer book has great recommendations, and it is much more current for today’s world.
IWT Tools & Training
The IWT book is just the tip of the iceberg. IWT has turned into an amazing and huge company.
Ramit has pretty much built an empire. And I will admit, I have purchase one of his courses. They are very well done, and you learn a lot.
If I were you, I would start with the I Will Teach You To Be Rich book.
Just remember that the most important step, before doing anything else, is getting your finances under control. You can do other stuff, additional reading, training, classes, and so on, later if you so chose.
To add this in on a personal note. I have never had to contact IWT support for any problems or issues.
I have sent them a few emails over the years. Their responses have always been quick, very informative, and helpful.
In addition to that, as I made my purchase of this book through Amazon. I have the Kindle version of this book and really do like it. But I don’t need to have a hard copy in my hands. I like that I can read wherever I am and don’t have to remember to bring something with me. But that might be the minimalist inside me.
As I mentioned above, I have purchased a course from IWT that Ramit put together. I contacted the support team for that, and they responded within a few hours. It also helps that they have multiple guarantees that back up their products.
For the book, it really speaks for itself, and I’m not sure why you would need to contact them for anything. But if you do, they are easy to get in touch with.
I know some people don’t want to pay for anything. I understand that. Over the last few years, I have taken on something I want to share with you.
This has to be one of the biggest improvements I have made in my life.
If there is a book or course that you want to take (that will IMPROVE your life), DO IT! I know this can be difficult at times, but when you are thinking about a $7 book investment. Stop thinking about it and buy it.
As I mentioned above, the price might have changed, but I have found Amazon to have the BEST PRICE! Click the image below to find out what the current cost is.
