The Simple Path to Wealth: Your road map to financial independence and a rich, free life

Our Director of Operations Mike is always reading something to further his professional knowledge and to develop his personal leadership and professional development skills. This week he shares his enthusiasm for J.L. Collins’ “The Simple Path to Wealth: Your road map to financial independence and a rich, free life”.

Mike says, “J.L. Collins is very straightforward and honest in this book. If you listen to the audiobook, it is like you are sitting down with your grandfather as he shares wisdom that he has spent his life gathering and putting to work. Collins provides great information and tells it how it is. Save more than you spend. Don’t overcomplicate things. Set yourself up for success. Not only does he share great advice, he also weaves in stories from his life about how his choices had a positive impact on his family and career. This is an enjoyable must read for all.”

Our MFF Book Suggestions feature includes many of our favorite books on money management, personal and business development, leadership skills, and real estate investment. These are the books that have helped us to grow personally and professionally – and to help us master the game of money!

Are you like Mike and enjoy listening to audiobooks? There are many benefits to listening (and learning) this way. Tell us what your favorite audiobooks are!

A Journey to Personal Financial Independence
At Morgan Franklin Fellowship (MFF), we support the concept of financial freedom – by teaching participants how to save by paying themselves first, invest for their future and grow their net worth.

Learning how money works and how to talk about money with others are the first steps towards recognizing an individual’s lifelong financial goals. Our online courses and on-demand learning events are designed to help individuals learn the concepts, rules and vocabulary of money, finance and investing.

Becoming an MFF Fellow  
Our Standards of Financial Literacy program is engaging, full of interesting information, and easy to navigate. Adapted from the National Standards for Financial Literacy developed by the Council for Economic Education (CEE), this robust curriculum features six short lessons on such important topics as earning income, understanding the value of saving and using credit.

When completed, this program lays the foundation for becoming an MFF Fellow. Becoming an MFF Fellow is the ticket to access additional MFF programs and opportunities for mentoring, networking, internships and real-world opportunities. These are the opportunities which allow MFF Fellows to continue their journey towards personal financial independence.
