How do you achieve a balanced
financial life and lasting wealth?
Conventional advice does not teach
people how to balance conflicting demands from
living expenses, credit cards bills, mortgages,
college funds, and retirement investments. Finally,
there is a book that does.
"If I'm So Smart, Where Did
All My Money Go?" is an engaging look at
ten diverse characters who each face different
financial challenges. In this story of a personal
finance seminar, you will meet the following
- Joe, a 23 year-old college graduate who already
finds himself with $20,000 of credit card debt, and
wonders if he has done permanent damage to his financial
- Eric and Sally, a couple in their 30s who bought
a home at the peak of the market and who fear they
could lose all of their equity,
- Andrea, a 40ish single mother whose living expenses
make saving for college and retirement seem an impossible
- Mitchell, a 55 year-old with two children on the
verge of college, who wonders how he will ever be
able to retire.
They, and others, each learn how to best achieve their
own personal objectives: how to save and invest money
for cars, homes, college, and retirement.
By following these examples, you will learn how to
apply the lessons to your own life. After reading this
story you will have learned:
- Exactly how much YOU need to save for your Home,
College, and Retirement
- How to prioritize YOUR savings goals
- Exactly how much YOU can afford to spend on everything:
your house, your car, food, clothing, and entertainment
- Which debt YOU should pay off and which you should
- Whether YOU should buy a home or rent one
- When YOU should invest in stocks and when to choose
You will learn to balance each of your financial objectives
in order to achieve all of them. Most important, you
will develop a level of confidence in your financial
future that you never imagined possible.
