6 Free Issues of MoneyWeek?

It is a beautiful sunny, blue-sky morning in South West London (for the first time in far too long it feels like). I wanted to share an offer today which I hope might be of interest to many of our readers.

Lots of people who have joined us in the last few months and / or who have read my books have been in touch to ask about other information sources they might consider to help them learn yet more about all things financial. I get several such requests a week in fact.

You may recall that in the last chapter of "How to Own the World", I recommend a number of free email services and classic books on wealth, and there is also a fair bit of this kind of information in the back of our workbook, "Live on Less, Invest the Rest".

Today, however, I wanted to remind people about another key resource that I know will have a huge positive impact on your ability to succeed financially (because it has had that impact on me and on plenty of other people I know in the last nearly twenty years).

I have said it before but it bears repeating: If you only take one “further reading” action after finishing my books, I think you should consider subscribing to MoneyWeek magazine and doing your best to read it every week.

It is my heartfelt belief that if you live in the UK, it is the single best weekly financial publication there is. I have been reading it for nearly twenty years, usually over breakfast on a Saturday morning, and it is not an exaggeration to say that this one simple habit has had quite literally a six figure impact on my financial affairs in that time. I'd even go so far as to say that I probably wouldn't have been able to write "How to Own the World" had I not subscribed to it so many years ago.

I believe that the price of a subscription is quite possibly the most cost-effective investment you can make in your financial future.

By reading MoneyWeek, you will ensure that you have a basic grasp of what is going on in the world and you will enjoy a constant stream of investment ideas and invaluable information on things like funds and shares. Many people are also surprised at what an easy read it is. It even has sections on things like wine, cars and property to lighten the tone. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

If you would like to take advantage of their latest subscription offer - we have arranged 6 free issues for our readership via the links in this article.

Cards fully on the table - Plain English Finance stands to make a small commission on any subscriptions that come via this article - but I hope that the fact that I've been recommending this course of action for a decade or so (and have only promoted like this once or twice in that time) - would give you confidence that my recommendation goes well beyond any commercial upside we may have in making it.

As I say, I truly believe that subscribing to MoneyWeek can have a very powerful affect on your ability to make, grow and keep wealth. If you'd like to see if you agree, please consider securing six free issues using this link to give it a try!
