Must Read

It will change your life if you're starting with little to no capital, or even if you're just looking for the next step...Such an awesome book!

Fred Weigel
This is a must read for anyone under 30! Those over 30 will learn a lot, too!

If you are under 30, this book is a must-buy!

We have a lot of children. I have purchased at least 5 or 6 "Set for Life," books to share with my adult children and my homeschooled children still at home. It is part of our finance curriculum for our high school-aged children.

I have recommended this book to all the college students I have taught since I first read the book in 2017 (I must have been one of the first to buy it when it came out). Scott should provide me these books freely, considering how many times I have recommended this book. 😁

"Set for Life" is the first book to come to mind, and the first book I recommend to anyone interested in personal finance, wealth, etc. I wish I had this book when I was 20. It would have saved me some hard-learned lessons.

Based on what's in Scott Trench's, "Set for Life," teenagers or young adults could prepare plans that would allow them to "retire" in their mid-thirties, possibly late twenties. If you're past that age, still buy this book.

The reason I'm on this page is to buy another copy of the book. This time, I'll get the Ultimate Version...even though I should get it free. 😁

Thank you Scott!

A friend of mine who i'am getting into real estate with said that I must read this book first prior to entering the industry. It was the best book I have read in awhile. It helped me get my finances in order and then helped me make even better life decisions this is the pinpoint strategy on how to get out of the rat race. I would also read this with Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki.


Scott provides excellent advice and actionable strategies to reach financial freedom. I have read this book multiple times and every time something new sticks with me and use it in everyday life. This book has also helped my Fiancee escape the 9-5 grind and for that, we are eternally grateful for Scott!
