To become a millionaire, one must develop the mindset of a millionaire and save. Sacrifice everything to reach your goal. Anything worth achieving is worth the sacrifice needed. Instead of giving your money to others, pay yourself from each paycheck. An Average Guy’s Journey to Becoming a Millionaire: A Guide to Exiting Debt and Becoming Wealthy by Jeremiah Decuir shares how he grew up in poverty yet is well on his way to becoming a millionaire. This book shares strategies anyone can adopt and start their path to millions. However, this is not the book for you if you are looking for a get-rich-quick guide. Becoming a millionaire takes lots of hard work and total commitment. One principle to apply is the snowball effect. Pay off debts and then roll that payment over to the next debt. Like a snowball rolling downhill, the amount paid toward debt reduction becomes more significant, and the debts become smaller.

Would you like to know how it feels to be debt free? How can an ordinary person become a millionaire? If either of these questions piques your interest, then you need to read An Average Guy’s Journey to Becoming a Millionaire by Jeremiah Decuir. According to Jeremiah, “Anyone from any working class, living anywhere across the United States, making any amount of income CAN become a millionaire.” This is an encouraging statement and should give you hope. Reading this book is inspiring and will help you commit to a lifestyle destined to make you wealthy. This book does not advise any methods that require exceptional abilities. Everyone can put into practice the principles Jeremiah mentions. As you read this book, you will start to nod in agreement that you can do it.

Who doesn't want to be a millionaire? But as the cost of living rises, a growing number of new adults have been working jobs they don't love just to make ends meet, much less dream of becoming a millionaire. In An Average Guy's Journey to Becoming a Millionaire, Jeremiah Decuir shares his own life experiences alongside his wife, Stephanie, as they pulled themselves out of debt and worked their way to becoming millionaires. This is not a get-rich-quick guide, neither is it a rags-to-riches tale. Instead, what Jeremiah offers through his story are tools and insights readers can use on their own journey to a life of success and financial independence. The author urges readers to rely on the proven principles of hard work, diligence, never giving up, sticking to the plan, and seeing it across the finish line.

This is one of the best and, by far, the most realistic books I've personally read about the journey to financial freedom. An Average Guy's Journey to Becoming a Millionaire contains actual, practically applicable solutions readers can use as they inch closer to achieving and fulfilling their dreams. Author Jeremiah Decuir takes a meticulous approach in laying out the framework he and his wife Stephanie used to get rid of their debt, save for a house, and ultimately reach the halfway point of their eventual goal of becoming a millionaire. After each chapter, there are excerpts titled "lessons learned," where the topic of the relevant chapter and their lessons are discussed. An inspiring tale of resilience, indomitable will, and sheer determination. Highly recommended.

The book also includes the author's list of literature that he utilized to educate himself on the subject of financial literacy. Growing up and witnessing his family struggle financially, Jeremiah decided that he would not be in the same situation. Jeremiah and his wife worked hard to settle their student loan debt and better their financial circumstances. Jeremiah dives into the facts to demonstrate to readers how to be focused and dedicated to a certain financial goal, as well as how to minimize expenditure and increase earnings. Prepare to be inspired by this no-nonsense, practical, and very readable book on building wealth.

An excellent feature of An Average Guy's Journey to Becoming a Millionaire is that it offers you the technical facts and computations leading to Jeremiah Decuir's financial decisions, which provides a close and personal experience that promotes trust in the content. I especially loved the lesson about college, which is that it helps you learn to the point where you believe you can grasp anything, which I believe is an important part of progressing in any area. This book is an excellent choice for readers who want to quit worrying about money difficulties and eventually make their fortunes. It is full of many insightful lessons and detailed calculations drawn from actual events. You finish reading a book like this and immediately want to tell someone about it or wish you had read it sooner.
