I have often found it frustrating that so many of my students make significant uninformed and poor financial decisions early in life that tend to lock them into a life path far below their true potential. There are no personal financial planning textbooks targeted at low-income community college students that lay out simple financial principals to move from poor to financially stable. Likewise, Personal Financial Planning is rarely a required course in High School or College. So, when the country went on lockdown to combat COVID-19, I began writing this book to address those issues.
Along the way, I chose to turn down invitations to have this book published. I did so because I feel that if there is going to be a personal financial planning textbook directed at low-income college students, it should also be accessible to those students. And you don’t get any more accessible than FREE.

Purchase a Hard Copy
You can order a print copy of the textbook through Amazon.com. The book prints in color, it’s 250 pages, and Amazon wants its royalty. So, unfortunately, it costs 39.99 to have the book printed through Amazon.
If you are on the College of San Mateo campus, you can also purchase a hard copy in my office, at my cost of $25. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to pick up a signed copy in my office.
