Dear Mr. Bach, I am now in the process of re-reading your amazing book: “The Automatic Millionaire” and I am seeing the changes that I have made in my life after having read your book initially in 2005.
I was a college student at a local Community college here, and I wasn’t sure about my future and I wasn’t very driven toward any particular goals until I read this book. I was given the awesome opportunity to start with a company immediately after High School, and I worked with them part-time through college, and after I had completed my education, I then decided to enroll in the 401K program with their company.
That was in July of 2005.
It is now May, 2007 and I have over $5,000.00 in that 401K and I had only applied 6% of my bi-weekly income into the account with a 50% employer match.
It is amazing that just having made the decision to “Pay myself first” has made such a difference in my life.
Also- I am 21 years old, and I have owned my own home for a year now. I got approved through a first-time homebuyer’s program with a 5.125%Interest rate, and I have to say that I got the strength to do it after reading your book.
I have to credit my Macro-Economics professor for recommending the book to me initially, and I just wanted to share with you and your readers what a mark your words have made on my life.
