New Book: TL;DR: Financial Literacy for Employees of Texas Public Schools: Optimizing Financial Decisions Based on Your TRS Benefits

I just wanted to share my latest book, this one written with Ryan Cruz for educators in Texas Public Schools, focusing on financial literacy and making the most of their TRS pension benefits.

Please consider sharing with any teachers you know in Texas.

This is the latest in the TL;DR Financial Literacy series. If you know educators in the following states/pension plans, or a young adult for the standalone young adult book, please consider sharing the appropriate book with them as well. And, if you happen to know a superintendent, school board member, principal, or union leader, you might suggest that this would make a great, inexpensive, possibly life-changing gift for new teachers.
