** Heads up – The following list may contain affiliate links (I mean hey – I don’t charge for my content, so this is a way to generate income. Check out the links on the bottom of the page to see how you can be an affiliate for Amazon, too!) I’m recommending the following because I like it, or someone I really trust has recommended it (like – OK Uniform – I’ve never bought a uniform there, but its like the go-to place in NYC and my friend bought her tux there). So, please do not feel like you have to purchase anything via my links. And for the books – go get them at the library!

Also, I am not a financial advisor, and do not claim to be one. These books are just my recommendations to increase your financial knowledge. Please consult a financial advisor. Thanks! **

(You can earn commission on anything that someone purchases through Amazon after they click your affiliate link. It’s not a big %, but hey – it’s another stream of income & we all need that. Stack it by adding an affiliate link to your Merch by Amazon designs. Check out my blog post about it: https://michelledyer.com/merch-by-amazon-actor-side-hustle-series/)
