Oeds-Jan Postma - How to Become a Millionaire With a Regular Job

Stop daydreaming and become financially independent


Jump to: Book details | About the author | Recommendations | Table of contents

Having a million in the bank, who wouldn’t dream of this? Never having to work anymore, doing everything you want. But why would you keep dreaming? Anyone can become financially independent. Also on a modest income.

To become a millionaire, you don’t have to work day and night or win the jackpot. The secret is to live modestly and invest smartly at the same time.

This book doesn’t features stories from famous footballers, singers, or top entrepreneurs, but from ordinary people, like the author. Everything you need, according to self-made millionaire Oeds-Jan Postma, is self-discipline not to run to the store after every commercial, and a useful way to let your assets grow. You can read in this book how to do that.

Postma still works. Because he wants to, money is no longer an incentive anymore.

‘The book is an absolute must-read in my opinion. Especially if you are a novice on finance, savings, and investment. And if you like practical tips, this is the book for you. But for the advanced reader, this book is still highly recommended. I really like the author’s writing style and the book is easy to read with humor; I caught myself laughing out loud after reading one of his statements. Recommended for anyone who wants to handle their finances smarter and wishes to know more about investing.’ – The Budget Life

‘Definitely recommended. And you have to do it yourself in the end, so make sure to have enough willpower for the next couple of years.’ – FinancElle
