Hott Review:

925 Ideas to Help You Save Money was really very interesting. There was a lot of insight and many helpful hints included in this book. Mr. Thorpe doesn’t go into too much detail on his 925 ideas, just giving us enough to get the point and then he moves on.

Some of my favorite ideas were how to teach our teens to handle money, and the explanations on the different investments and how they can be utilized. These were very helpful!!

Author Bio:

Devin Thorpe thinks he is the luckiest person alive. After being “let go” from the best job he’d ever had—as the Chief Financial Officer of the multinational food and beverage company MonaVie—he and his wife ended up living in China for a year where he wrote Your Mark On The World and embarked on the career he’d always wanted and hadn’t dared dream.
Now, as an author and blogger for Forbes Devin writes about the things that inspire him, mostly stories of people who are making a positive difference in the world and how we can all be more like them. His current life isn’t much like his past. As an entrepreneur, Devin ran—at separate times—a boutique investment banking firm and a small mortgage company. He served as the Treasurer for the multinational vitamin manufacturer USANA Health Sciences years before becoming CFO for MonaVie.
Devin squeezed in two brief stints in government, including two years working for Jake Garn on the U.S. Senate Banking Committee Staff and another year working for an independent state agency called USTAR, where he helped foster technology entrepreneurship during Governor Jon Huntsman’s administration.
Devin is proud to be a Ute, having graduated from the University of Utah David Eccles School of Business, which recognized him as a Distinguished Alum in 2006. He also earned an MBA at Cornell University where he ran the student newspaper, Cornell Business.
Today, Devin channels the idealism of his youth, championing social good, with the loving support of his wife, Gail. Their son Dayton is a PhD candidate in Physics at UC Berkeley (and Devin rarely misses an opportunity to mention that).
