Best Brokerage - TastyWorks
$5 trading fee for stocks and $1 fee for options and free to close/sell. TastyWorks has the lowest commissions and the best software (in my opinion). All of my accounts are with these guys, I can't say enough good things about them.
Books I Like
My favorite books on business, retirement, life, etc. can be found here. Here's a quick run down:
The End of Jobs
Great introduction to entrepreneurship and why building a business is the best way to create wealth. Also a great reality check on why the 9 to 5 is not as stable as most people think it is.
The 4 Hour Work Week
Ignore the cheesy title and you’ll find a great book. Tim Ferriss is an interesting guy and a great storyteller which makes this book an easy read. This will open your eyes to a whole new world of automation and outsourcing and how you can apply the lessons to your own life or business.
My favorite resources if you want to start selling products on Amazon can be found here.
