Blogger and Entrepreneur Publishes Unique New Book: “Money Success Without Being Rich”

Ronald Louis Barbour, a military veteran turned entrepreneur and financial blogger, has published a unique new book entitled “Money Success Without Being Rich”.

Clarksville, TN (USA), Thursday – July 05 2012 — Ronald Louis Barbour, a military veteran turned entrepreneur and financial blogger, has published a unique new book entitled “Money Success Without Being Rich.” The book, which is a compilation of blog posts written by Barbour since 2009, promotes simple strategies for managing money effectively.

The thought-provoking book challenges the myth of financial freedom by maintaining that anyone can be successful with money at any income level. “By learning and applying some basic money management principles starting today, I am confident that anyone can be financially free within the next 12 months—regardless of their monthly income,” Barbour says boldly in the book.

Barbour describes financial freedom as a time when a person’s monthly bills are easily covered by their monthly income; they are not living paycheck-to-paycheck; they can take care of all of their financial needs and many of their desires and they have enough money in savings to cover emergencies, help family and friends and donate to charitable organizations. Barbour is passionate about helping family members, friends and others gain control of and stay on top of their finances. “It’s hard for me to sit back and watch people get their utilities turned off, cars repossessed, homes foreclosed on,” he says. “I can’t stand seeing people lose so much because they don’t handle their money properly.”

“Money Success Without Being Rich” offers a simple, but effective solution. It takes a no-nonsense approach to how one should think about and handle money. The book encompasses 174 pages grouped into four areas for easy reading: Covering the Basics, Improving Your Thinking, Improving Your Situation and Getting Ahead. There’s also a Recommended Reading page featuring Barbour’s top 12 books for improving your finances and life.

“Money Success Without Being Rich” isn’t just another financial improvement book. It takes some of the complex concepts surrounding the utilization of money and puts them in plain terms that the average Joe can understand. In short, the book shows how anyone can use his/her income—regardless of the source and amount—in the most effective way possible. “Money Success Without Being Rich” is packed full of interesting and helpful topics, including:

* Four Basic Areas of Finances
* Good People Getting Bad Results
* Prosperity Is a Responsibility
* A Job Is not Enough
* 3 Ways to Protect Yourself from a Bad Economy
* Hard Work Alone Doesn’t Cut It
* Paycheck-to-Paycheck Living Is Dangerous
* The Less We Know, the More We Pay
* There’s a Solution to Every Money Problem
* How to Always Have an Income
* Three Ways to Improve in 2012

With a considerable number of Americans experiencing job loss, eviction/foreclosure, bankruptcy and financial frustration, “Money Success Without Being Rich” is an extremely timely book. It seeks to counter economic challenges with a much-needed message of empowerment and encouragement. It’s a must-read book for anyone who wants to improve his/her financial perspective and wellbeing. “Money Success Without Being Rich” is currently available online at
