Today marks the end of our joint reading of The Millionaire Next Door. It feels like it was yesterday when we began this journey together. It is your support and likes that have motivated me to search the text for material with the most universal appeal to different readers
Along the way I have learned valuable lessons about myself as well as identified areas for improvement. My most poignant reminder through this reading is to display the financial behavior I want my children to emulate and to resist the impulse to give them material gifts.
It’s a bittersweet moment as I post these last questions for reflection. If you have enjoyed this reading and would like to suggest a title for our next joint reading, please let me know. Until then, here is the final chapter.
