    I read Echo’s blog about charitable giving and I was blown away by the concept that I could be donating to charity the wrong way. I saw she wrote a book so I bought it! Just by following her instructions on creating a financial dashboard and calculating my risk number, I feel so much more confident in my financial positions and that I’m going to be able to retire when I want to. I recommend reading Echo's book if you want to take control of your financial freedom.

Not only is it an uncomplicated look at setting monetary goals but is penned from a unique author and her perspective. This author is an individual who knows what it's like to be without the comforts of modern society, growing up in a poor village in the People's Republic of China, and as a result of her experience, hard work, and self-control she has achieved her own financial goals and now professionally advising others. And so the writing begins with the reality of her life and learning and she shares that experience with the reader. She then builds on her success and experience by informing that management and accumulation of wealth is not complicated. She also delves into how individuals behave and respond to money and specifically encourages the reader to not give up the rewards of the accumulation of money but to delay the satisfaction that accumulated wealth can bring. Added to the mix are new and informative and useful ideas about financial planning. A few of the topics include steps towards a financial investment plan, tax strategies, estate planning, long-term care, charitable giving, etc. Of particular interest are "tips and tricks" that will empower the reader. Also, an intriguing teaching of the book is the 8,000-day plan…very interesting. Own Your Future: One Women's Story of Immigration and Financial Freedom by Echo Huang is an inspiring, educational and practical narrative that is sure to further inform the reader who wishes to expand their financial efforts. The goal soundly delivered is working towards building a solid and stable retirement, but enjoying the financial and liberating journey of managing one's wealth along the way. A bonus to the book is how to secure the services of a reputable financial planner.

    Own your future is a great finance book that gave me a lot to think about. It wasn’t like any other typical finance book with the jargon that would go over your head. Each chapter had a lot of practical financial advice with the perfect amount of emotional investment. Starting from author’s personal experience and how she achieved all to giving hope, courage and motivation to every women around the world. The 7 guiding principles and how one story leads to the next principle is remarkable. I was e Own your future is a great finance book that gave me a lot to think about.

Starting from author’s personal experience and how she achieved all to giving hope, courage and motivation to every women around the world. The 7 guiding principles and how one story leads to the next principle is remarkable. I was especially able to relate to the “Overcoming Behavioral Biases” chapter since it describes various personalities when it comes to taking financial risks and decisions. I learned a lot of new terms, plans and differences between various types of accounts/funds. The chapters are divided perfectly into several sectors of financial planning. Being from an Asian country, I understand the author’s intentions in motivating women to be independent and capable of taking care and interest in financial planning. My mom being a homemaker always wanted me to work hard and be financially independent instead of depending on a man and we both are pretty satisfied today with my financial situation. I still have a lot to learn and implement what I have learned from this book, since I am still in the early phase of my career.

    Most people get intimidated when they hear the term “wealth management”. However, the author of this book wants to show you that it is something for everyone, not just those who are rich. Striking the best balance between simple and complicated information, Mrs. Huang structured the book to cover multiple areas: how to simplify your financial planning and create your investment portfolio. How to determine different strategies and whether you can combine them to better suit your needs. One sectio Most people get intimidated when they hear the term “wealth management”.

Striking the best balance between simple and complicated information, Mrs. Huang structured the book to cover multiple areas: how to simplify your financial planning and create your investment portfolio. How to determine different strategies and whether you can combine them to better suit your needs. One section that many books do not cover, is how to manage your portfolio, if you are an Immigrant and have a different structure, or view on how money should be managed. I liked that the author reached back on her experiences, both personal and professional to showcase the information. She had an easy to read writing style, and I really liked that part about immigrants as I am one myself and some of the American ways of managing money make no sense to me. This is an interesting book with a wide target audience.

    A book for us - women - to become independent! Stories that portray women as main characters are my favourite and this one has just stolen my heart.

Stories that portray women as main characters are my favourite and this one has just stolen my heart. Echo Huang is a Chinese immigrant and writer of “Own your Future”. She courageously left her country and faced the world, and this book is just a glimpse at her bold and fearless life. The book focuses on Huang's financial advice. The suggestions she provides are clear and sound. Most importantly, they are real because they have been written by the sole main character of the story, by the writer in first person. But this book is not just that - behind the guides, options and steps, there is an inspiring view from a woman’s incredible story. I have learnt that, as someone once said, if there is a will, there is a way. This is why I recommend women to read this book.

    I am a woman, so this book blew me away. It filled me with new and fresh energy, and inspired me to do great things without being afraid.

    What caught my attention right away was that it was written by a woman, the majority of books I found in the past were all written by men. I think it is a great way to emphasize women's representation. Another thing I liked was how Echo Huang makes a point on how important it is to be present and connected to the decisions and choices we have to make along the way. They are key to achieving financial independence.

There is nothing more pleasant in learning something that will accompany us for the rest of our lives, especially if it is as important as the science of finance. As I always say, this type of book is a tool that helps defend our personal capital. Personally, what I enjoyed the most was the fact that this author´s approach is realistic.

    Graciously received a free copy through good reads. 3.5 stars- If the author's intention was to make me want a financial planner if I ever become wealthy because it's so complicated, well she did just that! However, the chapter on wills/trusts is fantastic. She knows her stuff, I just couldn't always follow.
