I don’t think I have enough saved (80-100k) to justify a financial advisor. But I also was never taught/learned about money management and planning. Are there any good resources or books in which I could learn about how to invest in my retirement?

Thank you! I will check both out

1. Read “Simple path to wealth” 2. Read “I will teach you to be rich” 3. Follow @personalfinanceclub and @savemycents on Instagram 4. Agree - check out YouTube videos from graham Stephan

The “I will teach you to be rich” is a book I got on Audible and they offer a site to reference the visuals. Honestly, get some hardcopies too...$20 bucks for books will help you grow your wealth for the rest of your life

And while you brush up on your skills buy an S&P500 index fund on vanguard. Maybe limited upside in the short term though with the historic increase in stocks.

If youre into podcasts I recommend "How to Money" for personal finance. If you want to get into trading stocks I recommend the podcast "Rule 1 Investing" And before you call me a nerd for being into podcasts they truly are an amazing way to learn while driving or while working out.

Yesss millionaires unveiled is a really good one!
