The following resources are things I have personally found value in either through watching, reading, or general use.
Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things discusses the state of our consumer-driven culture. I really enjoyed the interviews they managed to score including Sam & Dan Harris (no relation).
There is a great community at the forums of Mr. Money Mustache.
These are the podcasts I keep returning to; finding great quality and advice.
To maximize your time, experiment with increasing the speed of the podcasts you listen to. Start with 1.1x and move up from there as you become more comfortable. My typical range is 1.2x – 2.0x depending on the podcast.

Before purchasing I would consider checking out your local library to see if they have copies available. The reason is two-fold:
- Your tax dollars already fund the library so take advantage of being able to borrow books (dvd’s, etc.) for free.
- In between readings you won’t have to deal with books taking up space.

JL Collins did a great job making this book easy for everyone to understand. If you have considered delving into the world of investing, but are confused how to start, then this book is for you.
Don’t let fear of what others think keep you from living the life you want. This book is packed with great philosophies on letting go of that fear.
A rather short read with an interesting story about a character that realizes he can find more success simply by helping others. By adding value to their lives and putting their interests above his own, unexpected returns can result.
You know John Bogle the founder of Vanguard? This book comes from those who have followed his investment advice (low-cost index funds). The first edition of this book was my first foray into investing and the second edition doesn’t disappoint. It’s very thorough so grab a highlighter and get ready to use it as a reference piece.
This one is another great reference piece for investment knowledge and personal money management.
