About the Book

Adopt the investment strategy that turned a school teacher into a millionaire

Millionaire Teacher shows you how to achieve financial independence through smart investing — without being a financial wizard. Author Andrew Hallam was a high school English teacher. He became a debt-free millionaire by following a few simple rules. In this book, he teaches you the financial fundamentals you need to follow in his tracks. You can spend just an hour per year on your investments, never think about the stock market's direction — and still beat most professional investors. It's not about get-rich-quick schemes or trendy investment products peddled by an ever-widening, self-serving industry; it's about your money and your future. This new second edition features updated discussion on passive investing, studies on dollar cost averaging versus lump sum investing, and a detailed segment on RoboAdvisors for Americans, Canadians, Australians, Singaporeans and British investors.

Financial literacy is rarely taught in schools. Were you shortchanged by your education system? This book is your solution, teaching you the ABCs of finance to help you build wealth.

About the Reviews

If your goal is to become financially free asap & have enough income for a comfortable retirement, then there are only 2 books you really need to read.

  1. Millionaire Teacher - Andrew Hallam is an easy to read & understand guide to achieving your financial goals. His 9 rules explain what to invest in, how to deal with banks & financial advisors, how to balance your portfolio & a lot more, while spending only a few hours per year reviewing & correcting.
  2. Barefoot Investor - Scott Pape, explains how to structure your finances & discipline yourself to control your spending with ease, how to deal with debt, save for holidays, invest in your future by saving for a home, & investing in you superannuation. It written based on living in Australia but the principles can be applied to living anywhere.

These 2 books complement each other very well, & I highly recommend you read both.

*********************************

I heard about this book from an appearance of Hallam on the Afford Anything podcast. I'm far from a professional investor, and work in around the same salary bracket as the kind of life he described as a teacher. I'm interested in personal finance, but many finance books I've perused seem bent on selling you some path of real estate investing, playing the stocks or using complex methodologies to gamble your way into "maximized returns", none of which I'm really interested in. Hallam's book laid out very easily another path that I could see in my own life without having to become some sort of money guru. I'd definitely recommend this book if you want to set up for a smart future in the long term and you're not looking to be swayed by immediate dollar signs or fast talking dealmaking.

*********************************

AH's system works. I'm retired and in my early 40's. Live below your means and invest early: that's awesome advice!

Just do exactly what this book says (like buy Vanguard funds and avoid trend stocks). I lost $10K chasing newsworthy Rx stocks and Tech companies. It's all newspaper rhetoric. I analyzed swing-trading charts like I was plotting a trip to the moon: you can't predict or plan anything!

The only thing that helped me make some serious cash with stocks is the CAN SLIM Method (O'Neil) and this book. For teachers and any other professional making less than $60K a year, this is THE way. Time will pass and you'll lock in "slowly but surely" gains. It's the marathon way of investing, not a get-rich-quick sprint.

After you execute this book's simple financial plan, just focus on how to learn they kids goodlier and give them knowledges. Nothing left to say.
