Live on Less, Invest the Rest…

Published in July 2020, “Live on less, invest the rest…” picks up where How to Own the World leaves off. Andrew’s new workbook is a companion text to his original best-seller and to our online Community. The book embeds what we have learned from that group over the last several years.

“Live on less, invest the rest…” is the evolution of a document called the “Complete Guide” which members of our Community have received for free since 2014 when joining that group.

In that time, Andrew and the team have been able to see all the various questions and concerns that are most regularly raised by our members.

“Live on less…” is a reaction to those questions and an attempt to summarise the answers as succinctly as possible in one place.

Topics covered include:

  • How you can find the money to invest.
  • Paying off any expensive debt you may have.
  • Saving up a “rainy day” pot to cover you in a crisis.
  • Setting up the right investment accounts such as ISAs and pensions.
  • Simple investment strategies you might consider.
  • Sensible asset allocation based on your age.
  • Annual housekeeping and valuable Further Resources.

Investment need not be that complicated – it is just that most people never learn anything about it. The approach outlined in “Live on less, invest the rest…” should give you the confidence to sort your finances out once and for all. For most people, this is a huge relief and one of life’s great problems solved.

The book can work as a stand-alone product but is ideally designed to work hand in hand with our live and interactive online Community. With this in mind, there is a promo’ code in the back of the book which gives you three months of free access to the group if you purchase a copy (access is usually £5 a month).

…Or you can do it the other way around - in that anyone joining our group receives a free digital copy. This gives you the chance to experience the benefits of the group for three months whether you’re the sort of person who prefers a print or a digital copy.

Our fervent hope is that the approach outlined in “Live on less, invest the rest…” could very well help you make a five, six or even seven figure difference to your net worth over the long run.
