Who

When I first read this prompt, one of the first things to pop into my head was, “Who do you say that I am?” Jesus said it to Simon Peter in Matthew 16.

I say that He is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, my Lord and Savior. He is my Redeemer. He died so that I might live. He is my Protector and Comforter.

He is the “Who” that I want to please, want to live for, want to share with the world.

When this life is over, He is the “Who” that will come for me. I look forward to that day.

Mediterranean Cookbook for Healthy Lifestyle: 70 Easy Recipes for Eating and Feeling Well Every Day, 7-Day Meal Plan by Jennifer Tate

All of the books on brain health we have reviewed recently recommend the Mediterranean Diet.  This book, Mediterranean Cookbook for Healthy Lifestyle: 70 Easy Recipes for Eating and Feeling Well Every Day, 7-Day Meal Plan by Jennifer Tate, explains it in a nutshell.

We give Mediterranean Cookbook for Healthy Lifestyle all five stars.  We think you will like it.

Book Review: The Employee Millionaire – Personal Workbook: How to Use Your Day Job to Become a Millionaire with Rental Properties by H J Chammas

The Employee Millionaire – Personal Workbook: How to Use Your Day Job to Become a Millionaire with Rental Properties by H J Chammas

There are so many books out there on “The Only One Way to Invest” that it will make your head spin. Almost all of the books we read on investing start out by telling you what is wrong with all other forms of investing and why theirs is the one and only way to invest your money to earn an income.

The Employee Millionaire – Personal Workbook: How to Use Your Day Job to Become a Millionaire with Rental Properties by H J Chammas is different. He does give a little comparison and contrast between investing in rental property and investing in stocks and bonds. In this case, he actually gives the pros and cons for both.

Nowhere in the book does Mr. Chammas tell his readers it is going to be easy. He does not tell you that checks will pour in while you sip on umbrella drinks.

This book tells you how to get started on a fairly moderate income and then roll it into owning and renting out multiple properties.

He takes his readers through the whole enchilada. He tells readers about the process of getting pre-approval for a loan and then finding properties and making an offer.

He even tells his readers what they need to take to the closing on a sale of property. He attempts to make this “white-knuckle” event much less stressful.

Readers are given links to online forms that help with the whole process from start to finish. He even takes his readers through getting their budget in line before they start.

We truly believe The Employee Millionaire is a must read for anyone attempting to find a way to add to their income in the least stressful way. This book will make a great gift for that would-be investor on your gift giving list. We give it all five stars.

We were sent a complimentary copy of this book. We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.
