Clarksville, TN (PressExposure) July 07, 2012 -- Ronald Louis Barbour, a military veteran turned entrepreneur and financial blogger, has published a unique new book entitled "Money Success Without Being Rich." The book, which is a compilation of blog posts written by Barbour since 2009, promotes simple strategies for managing money effectively.
The thought-provoking book challenges the myth of financial freedom by maintaining that anyone can be successful with money at any income level. "By learning and applying some basic money management principles starting today, I am confident that anyone can be financially free within the next 12 months--regardless of their monthly income," Barbour says boldly in the book.
Barbour describes financial freedom as a time when a person's monthly bills are easily covered by their monthly income; they are not living paycheck-to-paycheck; they can take care of all of their financial needs and many of their desires and they have enough money in savings to cover emergencies, help family and friends and donate to charitable organizations. Barbour is passionate about helping family members, friends and others gain control of and stay on top of their finances. "It's hard for me to sit back and watch people get their utilities turned off, cars repossessed, homes foreclosed on," he says. "I can't stand seeing people lose so much because they don't handle their money properly."
"Money Success Without Being Rich" offers a simple, but effective solution. It takes a no-nonsense approach to how one should think about and handle money. The book encompasses 174 pages grouped into four areas for easy reading: Covering the Basics, Improving Your Thinking, Improving Your Situation and Getting Ahead. There's also a Recommended Reading page featuring Barbour's top 12 books for improving your finances and life.
"Money Success Without Being Rich" isn't just another financial improvement book. It takes some of the complex concepts surrounding the utilization of money and puts them in plain terms that the average Joe can understand. In short, the book shows how anyone can use his/her income--regardless of the source and amount--in the most effective way possible.
