Today, on The BIGG Success Show, we’re thrilled to talk with David Bach, one of the most trusted authors of our time. He’s written nine consecutive New York Times bestsellers, including two that hit #1.

David joins us today to share the secrets to financial freedom from his new book, The Latte Factor: Why You Don’t Have to Be Rich to Live Rich*. Here’s a summary of our discussion…

Why did you write this book as a parable?

David says he’s wanted to write this parable since 2004. He was on Oprah, talking about The Automatic Millionaire*, his most popular book at that time. It’s about an ordinary couple who achieve total financial freedom at the age of 52, having never earned over $52,000 a year.

It shows, he explains, that you don’t have to be rich to invest. You don’t have to make a lot of money to retire early.

As the book became more and more popular, David realized that one of the best ways to reach people is by telling stories. His favorite books – The Alchemist* by Paulo Coelho and Who Moved My Cheese* by Spencer Johnson – were stories.

He adds: The truth is 98% of the people are never going to buy a financial book. But they’ll buy a story book. So I thought I could reach more people by putting this into a parable. But the story didn’t end there…

David is a BIGG fan of Paulo Coelho, author of The Alchemist. He spent a delightful evening with him back in 2012. As the time to retire neared, Paulo turned to David and said, “What is the book that your soul desires to write, that you have not yet written?”

David replied, “I want to write this book called The Latte Factor, that could inspire tens of millions of young people all over the world to realize that their dreams are closer than they think, that small amounts of money could change everything in their life. I have a son. He’s a teenager. I can’t get them to read my books yet.”

Paulo put his hand on David’s arm and said, “Then David, you must write that book.”

So David wrote The Latte Factor. And his son read it…and immediately acted upon it.

On The BIGG Success Show today, we were thrilled to talk with Erin Lowry. You may know Erin from her critically acclaimed book Broke Millennial*. She’s back with a new book called Broke Millennial Takes On Investing: A Beginner’s Guide to Leveling Up Your Money*. Erin joined us today to talk about it. Here’s a summary of our discussion…

What is a “beginning investor”?

Erin says a lot of personal finance books assume a basic level of understanding of the stock market. In addition, they tend to use jargon which makes people feel like outsiders. It prevents them from learning more.

She wrote this book for these beginning investors, people who in many cases may not even think of themselves as investors. But if you have a 401(k) with your employer, you’re an investor – whether you think you are or not.

Want to hear Erin and George each share an unpleasant memory from math class, which illustrates what it’s like when you don’t understand investing? Listen to the show by clicking the PLAY button above.

How do you know when you’re ready to begin investing?
