Thanks to everyone who has checked out my second book, The Wealthy English Teacher: Teach, Travel, and Secure Your Financial Futureover on Amazon in both digital and print formats.

So far, the reviews have been very positive. Here they are:

Alex (on Goodreads): "I didn’t expect this book to be so well-written. The author really knows what she is talking about and speaks from personal experience. She doesn't promise to make you rich or to get rich quickly, but rather gives you tons of advice to secure your financial future for the long run. This book is very detailed with excellent financial advice. Her passion really shows through in this book."

Neil (on Amazon): "This book provides sound advice for expat teachers (or any profession actually) to get their financials in order from the other side of the world. It provides an easy to follow step-by-step plan for even the most financial illiterate to find success with. My only criticism is that it it seems too easy work! It's a steal for only $3. I wish I had read this book many many years ago."

Sharon (on Amazon): "Jackie takes you step-by-step through how to become well-off by TEFLing. Too often people think that TEFL teachers barely scrape by. While this may be true for some, Jackie shows us how we can travel the world teaching English and save money in the process.

She breaks down the different types of jobs and compares salary vs hours worked and explains why accepting a lower paying job might actually be better for you in the long run. Choosing where to go comes next. While many people might want to go to Europe, the money simply isn't there.

Becoming rich can seem like a daunting task, but she teaches you how to do things slowly, starting with an emergency fund, then building up to $10,000. She also teaches you about the basics, like never spending more than you make and to pay off debt.

She has put together a variety of sample portfolio options for Americans and non-Americans that can help you get started. She also encourages you to do your own research and has a number of websites she recommends you take a look at. She tells you how to choose stocks and what you should invest in. Investing can be scary, but Jackie easily breaks it down so that you can understand.

Jackie discusses passive income streams as well. There are so many options available and recommends a handful of them and tells you how to get started. She also brings up insurance, travel, and taxes and gives tips about each of these.

I'd highly recommend this book for any TEFL teacher. It's full of useful info that will help you make the most of your life as a TEFL teacher, enjoy your job, and not have to worry about retiring."
