I somehow “clicked” on a pop up and got to your website. The testimonies were so positive and I had been in credit card debt for years. I rushed out and bought your book Smart Couples Finish Rich the next day. I started making little changes.
A week later my 13 yr. old son gave me The Automatic Millionaire as a Christmas present. (Books are popular gifts in our house) I was so inspired by the simplicity of it all.
Now, after about 6 weeks following your advice I will be out of credit card debt by 10/06. I will have a substantial savings account (at 4.25%) by the end of the year. I am finally able to donate to my favorite charities and have. This week I will opened a conservative IRA in my name and next year we will open a Roth IRA for my son. I showed him your chart on pg 95 in Smart Couples. We were blown away by the results of a minimal part time job over the summer. My son is a very active, intelligent preteen but he wants to work during the summer. He is excited about investing at a young age. (and not having to give up sports during the summer to do it)
Perhaps you will be hearing from my son in the future.
All the best to you and your family!
