In this video Forleo discusses the habits of the rich as well as some of her favorite financial authors.

The video starts with Forleo answering a question from one of her readers who is building a nice business online.  The reader, Ainsley from Australia, seeks money advice concerning her new income.  Should she reinvest it in her company, pay herself or save?

Forleo notes that the first thing she needs to do is to be clear on her vision for the company.  Does she want to grow the company, hire more staff, etc..  She also states that Ainsley should make sure she hires a competent tax advisor to help steer her in the right direction.  The discussion then turns to personal finances and Forleo recommends three of her favorite financial authors.

First off, she mentions David Bach and specifically recommends two of his books, Smart Women Finish Rich and The Automatic Millionaire.  Now, I’ve read the Automatic Millionaire and it is a good basic primer to set your finances on autopilot.  In the end if you don’t have a plan you might not have anything!

Next up, Marie mentioned Suze Orman as a financial force who scared the “bejeezus” out of her.  Forleo woke up to the fact that it would be a good idea to get a will and trust set up and to set up financial agreements with your relatives.

Lastly, Marie recommends the works of Ramit Sethi, the author of I Will Teach You to Be Rich.   Though she notes his style might be a bit acerbic for some she states that it is a style she enjoys.
