Maarten van Lierabout this book: I came to this country at the age of 26 with nothing more than a decent education. I landed myself a good job and fulfilling career. Faced with a different social and financial catch net than the one I grew up in I was determined to do something about it.
I set a goal and came up with a plan. This book describes the 13 years of execution of my 10 year plan to become a millionaire.
During those years I've learned a lot and achieved a lot, even in the face of financial and personal adversity.
Besides my story of this journey, this book will offer valuable lessons and tips on achieving similar goals, you as a reader may set for yourself. More importantly it should show you the reader, that it is still possible to reach financial freedom even as a salaried employee.
In the book I talk about how I maximized my income and achieved much greater raises then the average employee, I describe in detail how we managed to cut our living expenses by over $20,000. I describe how I've adapted our investment strategies to achieve maximum return with the least possible effort and investment knowledge. I describe how we build ourselves a nest egg that exceeds a million dollars.
This is NOT a "get rich quick" scheme as the title should make clear. This is also not a "frugality extreme" book; I've never tasted Ramen noodles and actually own a house on the water. This book reflects the reality of what it takes to set yourself a goal, come up with a plan and execute on that plan.
My hopes are that this book may inspire others to do what we did, whatever your goals may be.
