You Can Be Rich Too vs Gamechanger: Which should I buy?

As co-author of both, that is a bit of a leading question 🙂 I will state the differences and hope you purchase buy both 🙂

You Can Be Rich Too with Goal Based Investing is my first book co-authored with P V Subramanyam and published by CNBC TV 18. This is a money management workbook that lists the right questions to ask, offers nine online calculator modules as solutions to those questions. The reader can use these to obtain personalized answers.

GameChanger is a productivity optimization book. It talks about how to make the most of what you have – time and money and use it to fuel your dreams. Aside from the tips and suggestions mentioned above, it offers a simple plan for young earners to enjoy life with a corporate job and quit (if they want to) to pursue their passion with a solid income plan as backup.

We need a plan to systematically free our income from our skill-set and the services that we are capable of.

1) How to have a plan to quit as soon you start working and invest for it with minimal effort on auto-pilot.
2) How to manage expenses and time with minimal effort
3) Learn how to make that 4-day weekend in Thailand for 12k, plus travel to exotic locations at 50% lower budgets than what you did previously
4) Learn how credit cards can lower home loan payments and how to negotiate the fees associated.
5) Invest for financial freedom on auto-pilot!

Testimonials for GameChanger

This book will change the outlook of those who read it. – Murali Vijay, Indian Cricketer 

This book changed the way I looked at vacation planning and has provided me with a new perspective when planning for a vacation. Previously, I used to decide a location and then plan a trip, this book gave a new perspective to bucket-list different places and then select the optimum place at a given point of time. The book has provided various accommodation options that I was not aware of. From personal finance planning, I only wish that I had access to this book at the start of my career. – V Muthukrishan

Most investor problems can be traced to a lack of informed decision making. We have all made bad decisions and money mistakes when we started earning and spent years undoing these mistakes. Why should our children go through the same pain? What is this book about? As parents, if we had to groom one ability in our children that is key not only to money management and investing but for any aspect of life, what would it be? My answer: Sound Decision Making. So in this book, we meet Chinchu, who is about to turn 10.
