Publisher's Summary

Number-one worldwide best seller Bodo Schafer suggests tips to help make you as successful as he and many others have been by showing you the road to financial freedom.

For many people, the concept of actually owning a million dollars at one time is completely unfathomable. So what if you could do it in seven years? Bodo Schafer, renowned financier and personal management aficionado, is back again to help people discover the tips and tricks that successful individuals employ to make it to the top.

The Road to Financial Freedom is just that - a journey, and one Schafer has elected to help you undertake. Being rich and successful isn't merely luck; it takes discipline, tools, and an understanding of finances that most people simply don't have. This book is here to help unravel the shroud that keeps success out of the grasp of ordinary individuals.

In this book you will learn:

  • How to manage and eliminate debt
  • Asset control and growth
  • Ways to not depend on others for financial solvency
  • And so much more!

While becoming a millionaire in just seven years seems like a dream to some, those who practice the habits in this book could very well see it become a reality. Individuals are fraught with financial prejudices they don't know they have, which keep them from attaining success they don't know they are capable of. You can earn money, manage that money, and watch that money grow exponentially in a way that allows you every want without becoming destitute, because at the end of the day it's all about making your money work for you instead of spending your whole life working for your money.

Gives hope to the youth and inspiration to them.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would definitely recommend this book to my colleagues and mates as I want them to know what it takes to earn and how to be successful.

Who was your favorite character and why?

There was no favorite character and the narrator was definitely ambitious enough to inspire the listener to acting upon what was written here.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did feel much more hopeful and insightful after listening to the book. It made me happy for sure as I became more determined to dictate the way I live my life.

Any additional comments?

This book is the must-have guide for everyone who has just started to earn or who is shifting from learning to making. The entrepreneur skills and the saving tips are really what define who a person will grow up to. Becoming a millionaire in a few years would definitely justify you saving off a mere 10% of your income.

The book what gave me a motivational boost

Would you consider the audio edition of The Road to Financial Freedom to be better than the print version?

It depends what you prefer. As I'm getting faster tired while reading books, I personally prefer audiobooks same time my hands are free I can be more mobile.

What other book might you compare The Road to Financial Freedom to and why?

I haven't read many books about such a subject, but I could somehow compare The Road to Financial Freedom book to Richard Branson book - "Screw it, Let's do it". Somehow it felt same inspirational and opened many hidden doors to see the bigger picture of how to get closer to financial success. Both books inspired me a lot and dared me to make a new important steps in my life - start saving and don't waste money.

What does Kelly Rhodes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

After all, I loved the idea about saving 10% of your income. This for me is as a foundation for building wealth and experience financial freedom in long run. The book it self will not make nobody rich, you just have to take the action and use the principles and technique presented in the story.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Interesting task...I would probably go with : "I bet you had no idea that also You can be rich..."

Any additional comments?

Listening to the book story I saw many similarities to my situation, what i have been doing wrong, blaming others for my own fails, avoiding responsibilities...Living over my budget, it's so true that many people thinking like this - to live now and don't think about tomorrow is so right. When i was younger I was thinking the same. I can only say many thanks to the author Bodo Schäfer for really powerful material for people who lost their faith that can be better. "The Road to Financial Freedom" is must read for every ambitious and desire to change lives person. I am inspired.

Guide to a prosperous life

Any additional comments?

I’m so glad I came across this book. ‘The Road to Financial Freedom’ has amazing principle for living an effective life. Bodo's style of writing is so hilarious and it makes an enjoyable read. It's not just some self-help book that preaches you on how to be rich, but more of a journey to greatness. The book is full of other people's stories and this helps in making it intriguing and easy reading. At 18 even though financial freedom is not the most important thing on my mind right now, but it’s the ultimate goal I want to achieve in my life. I will definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to have a brighter future but has no idea how to achieve it.

Steps for success

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would. I think that most of people's problems are due to the fact that people don't know many things! So I believe that knowing the steps you need to do in order to become richer and richer (not only as far as money, but also as a human being!) can make someone happier!

What other book might you compare The Road to Financial Freedom to and why?

I've read another book on the financial freedom topic and it was "Secrets of the millionaire mind". I like to experiment different points of view on the same topic, and both books were very useful for this!

What does Kelly Rhodes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

A voice can give you emotions that you wouldn't experience just by reading the book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes!!! I wanted to finish it right away because all the tips and tools that the book gave me made me change a lot of thoughts and emotions that I had as far as money, debts, responsibilities... I felt better!

Any additional comments?

This book is a perfect manual to decide what is your goal, understand why you didn't achieve it yet and find the actions you need to do from today on in order to change your results!

Amazing book on how to gain financial success.

If you could sum up The Road to Financial Freedom in three words, what would they be?

I would easily use the following words to sum up The Road to Financial Freedom: succinct, informative, encouraging

Who was your favorite character and why?

This book did not have characters to review. It is about the basic principles of how to make your fortune with sound practices and easy to follow directions. It outlines the people to use as role models, basic principles of compound interest and it's importance in building your wealth, how to create a "dream album", wise words of encouragement, four pillars of a positive financial lifestyle, strategies to write your own life's script, and 24 questions to uncover a snapshot of your current money situation.

What about Kelly Rhodes’s performance did you like?

Loved Mr. Rhodes's voice. The inflections you would expect for the material being read was evident. I'd happily listen to him in other audile books.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I had a strong reaction to this book. I took copious notes to use as future reference. I wish I had read or listened to this book when I was just starting out on my adult life. I am retired now, but can use Bodo Schafer's guidelines, principles and concepts to make our retirement funds last longer.

Any additional comments?

I have a 23 year old son who is autistic. I plan on letting him listen to this book so that he can start out his adult life financially on the right track. This book will help him become a self-reliant, financially secure adult.

Practical, motivating and thought-provoking

I consider myself to be quite savvy in financial matters but this book managed to change my perspective on personal investment. If I had read this 10 years earlier it could have saved me from some of the mistakes I made.

The book recommends a structured approach which is practical and achievable by anyone who is willing to put their mind to it.
