Don’t want to eat your vegetables? Listen to them instead!

If looking at a stack of personal finance books makes you want to run and hide, take a page from my audio-playbook, and listen to them instead! When I’m in the studio I always have someone’s voice in my ear — it’s how I keep up with new ideas while getting’ sh#t done. And more often than not these days I’m listening to an audiobook about personal finance.

And here’s the best news you’ve heard all day! Audible is offering a free trial membership to Sm*artly readers. You can get 2 free audiobooks, no strings attached just by following this link:

That’s like putting $45 dollars back into your pocket… Or if you deposited that $45 into a Roth IRA for the next 30 years, growing it at an average of 7% annually — you’d have $365.24 tax free! What an awesome bonus!

Smartly audio favorites include:

The Undercover Economist
By Tim Harford


The One-Page Financial Plan: A Simple Way to Be Smart About Your Money
By Carl Richards


The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business 
By Charles Duhigg

Listen, learn, feel productive — bravo!

What are your favorite audiobooks? I’d love to read about them in the comments, and as always, I’d love to hear from you directly at
