In this episode I'm joined by legendary personal finance podcaster Pete Matthew.
Pete's written his first book, it's called The Meaningful Money Handbook.
Rather than read out an author bio, I wanted to share a testimonial for the book written by Andy Hart, host of the Maven Money Podcast. Andy said:
"Pete has shared more financial wisdom with more people than anyone I know. He is not only a credit to our mighty profession, he’s a credit to humanity. He’s on a selfless pursuit to assist those who are willing to take ownership of their financial futures. Money is invisible and financial success is about working on future problems. Pete brings these subjects to life and caringly tells you what you need to know and more importantly what you need to do. This book is long overdue; it deserves to be a bestseller."
And I've no doubt it will become a bestseller. The book is out today, Monday 17th September, and we're publishing this episode to coincide with the publication. I've read it, it really is very good indeed. So good that my testimonial is on the front cover.
In The Meaningful Money Handbook, Pete guides you through everything you need to KNOW and everything you need to DO to build a secure financial future for yourself and your family.
He takes readers through three simple steps:
1. Spend less than you earn and clear debt.
2. Insure against disaster.
3. Build up your savings and invest wisely.
No matter your starting position, or your existing level of comfort with dealing with your money, Pete's calm, straightforward and jargon-free approach will appeal to you and help you to set out on the right path.
