Book Review and Giveaway ~ Poverty Sucks!

We recently had the opportunity to review a book by Aimee Elizabeth called Poverty Sucks! How to Become a Self Made Millionaire .

The book starts out with a little bit of history about Aimee, who lived in poverty for a while starting in her teenage years. She was determined to get out, and shares here experiences in freeing herself from her economic situation. In reading the book, you share her successes and failures.

The book is very specific in showing how she got herself out of her situation. At times, it seemed a bit specific to the author, but if the reader looks at the general ideas put forth in the book, they will surely benefit. She gives great information about what to do when you're just starting out. She really helps lay the groundwork for starting a business. What do you want to do? How do you choose what to try? How to you get funding (if needed) to start a business? How do you take care of the legal matters of starting a business?

What I really enjoy about this book is that it is easy to see that the information is based on first hand experience from the author. Nothing is artificial. It is all tried and proven to work (or to fail, which is equally as helpful). There are many great specific examples of how to promote yourself and your business, how to protect yourself and your business, and how to crunch the numbers beforehand, to avoid loss.

The last 1/3 of the book is very detailed in investment rental properties. While this can be a very good way to make a LOT of money, it is not without risk. If you learned from the first 2/3 of the book, you are already on your way to financial success. If you want to go for the gusto and try to make millions, read the final 1/3 of the book many times. Do your own research too, but Aimee's experiences and writing are very helpful as well.

All in all, this is a good book to get you motivated. The ideas, tips and stories come across as being very real (while specific at times) and attainable. I really felt like I connected with the author and am definitely motivated to get up and start my journey toward a million bucks!
