The Ultimate Source of Wisdom

If you are into financial management i guess you already read one of the books of financial coaches – Dave Ramsey, Warren Buffet, Robert Kiyosaki. Yeah, they give practical advise on savings and investment. But I agree with financial  guru Randell Tiongson that more than the wisdom we can get from self-help books we can great source of wisdom from the Bible.   The author of broken mindset shared a blog where does financial gurus get wisdom.  http://www.brokenmindset.org/where-does-financial-gurus-get-wisdom/
