I have been finding it hard to get up the nerve to write you. We saw you live in Edmonton and I chickened out to say hi and thank you because I was scared I would start to cry. We have a huge story to share, but unfortunately can’t properly sum up here or on the phone. Our story must be heard somehow!
I have read–and studied–three of your books and am WAITING for the next Homeowner book. We were in financial despair, I was and am sick with Multiple Sclerosis. My husband being an electrician went from annual $40,000 to a whopping $125,000 income on your advice for raising your salary, etc. Crying, very pregnant with our fourth child and sick with Multiple Sclerosis, I ‘gently’ pushed him out the door to ‘get experience’ in a different sector of his career. He had to leave us and work out of town to gain experience and he is now home transfered within his company locally and making MORE money, now has an RRSP and is maxing it. We now invest and we teach our kids hands on how they can handle their money and save and invest. We are even about to invest in our SECOND home!
We are very young couple and have been together for nine years, burying ourselves into debt. We were on the road to bankrupcy when he left town to open more doors career wise. You have no idea how you have helped us to change our lives. Now my MS doesn’t look so challenging to me anymore, I feel I can face anything, and now we can focus on the important things in life….our family. We broke a trend and have confidence that our kids will carry it on after us. And I feel that I have only scraped the surface with sharing our success.
Investing is now something I don’t feel I ‘have to do’…it’s my passion in life (other than my family). It’s for my family, and I am constantly on numerous Web sites, taking courses, soaking in whatever I can.
David, I am sorry I didn’t shake your hand and say thank you. I thought I would look like a fool breaking down crying, then I saw ALL THOSE OTHER PEOPLE, THE LIVES YOU’VE CHANGED, with just SIMPLE LOGIC.
