** Heads up – Some of the items on the list contain affiliate links. Check out info at 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/)
