Whatever financial freedom means to you – living the life you want, not working to someone else’s timetable, not worrying about money ever again, or some other dream – the way to get there is through investing.

In this concise and accessible book, Ben Carlson and Robin Powell show you how to put yourself on the path to financial freedom through sensible saving and straightforward investing.

This is not about getting rich quick. But it is about getting rich reliably. Building wealth through investing – with the long-term goal of financial freedom – requires discipline, sacrifice and time. But it is possible, and almost anyone can do it if armed with the right information.

Invest Your Way to Financial Freedom shares all the steps you need to take to reach your goals.

This includes clear and simple answers to the following questions:

Why is saving important – and how much to save?
Why is investing the best way to build wealth?
What should investors expect from the stock market?
How long does it really take to become a millionaire?
Is it too late if you don’t make an early start to saving and investing?

After reading this book, you will know everything you need to know to achieve financial freedom!

Professional Reviews

This is one of the books I wished had been given to me when I was starting my first full-time job. I would have avoided a whole lot of expensive financial mistakes I made early on in my career. Naresh Jayakumar, NJURLIFE

Carlson and Powell have shown an extraordinary ability to summarise the key concepts of personal finance in a clear and simple way. With numerical examples within everyone's reach, this book answers questions on why, how, when, how much you should save and invest — and which tools to use. It is both enjoyable and educational. Investire Con Buon Senso

Carlson and Powell bring a great deal of expertise to the table in this readable, enjoyable and useful handbook. Drawing from their careers and personal experience they present some cogent advice for how to begin and continue a path to financial independence. In 22 short chapters this book lays out a plan that anyone can follow. Invest Your Way to Financial Freedom earns our high recommendation. Angus McLeod, The Money Question

I wish I had read Invest Your Way to Financial Freedom in my early 20s. It would have saved me from some big mistakes. Alice Guy, My Money Harvest

At last! A one-stop guide for UK savers that shows just how simple sensible investing can be – but is no simpler than it should be. Monevator

The lack of financial education at school, combined with the British taboo on discussing monetary matters, can lead to an information vacuum. That space is ripe to be filled with the empty, baseless advice of shills, charlatans and ‘finfluencers’. Everyone beginning to explore their financial self could benefit from filling said void with the truths found in this simple guide instead. MedFI

I gave the book to my son to read. He devoured it in two sessions. It was fascinating to watch as a series of lightbulb moments occurred while he was reading. Lessons new. Lessons he had listened to previously but hadn’t heard until now. Hopefully, he will take them on board and incorporate some of them into how he approaches his own financial future. Indeedably

This is the sort of well-written book I wished someone had given to me as a teenager to avoid some of those expensive and painful ‘learning by doing’ financial mistakes that many of us make early on. Indeedably

Invest Your Way to Financial Freedom is an essential read for anyone starting out their investment journey; informative, well-written and easy to understand. Life After the Daily Grind

Ben Carlson and Robin Powell's new book, Invest Your Way to Financial Freedom offers a clear path to building wealth that everyone should have learned in school (but didn't). I highly recommend this clearly written guide. Andrew Hallam, bestselling author of Millionaire Teacher and Balance: How to Invest and Spend for Happiness, Health and Wealth

The long term tried & tested strategies outlined in Robin & Ben’s book “Invest Your Way to Financial Freedom” are a must for all investors starting out on their journey to financial freedom. The book closely mirrors my personal journey, starting from working down a coal mine at the age of 16 to retiring a multimillionaire at the age of 50. Financial freedom for most people is not about hitting the jackpot with stocks or crypto. It’s about a sensible long-term life strategy to investing and financial prudery which will eventually lead to personal financial freedom, virtually guaranteed if you start early enough & follow the suggestions in this book.
