Last Christmas I was in Puerto Vallarta celebrating my parents 50th anniversary and I brought your book to read on the beach. By the time I got through it I had declared 2006 to be “the year of real estate!” I had been talking about getting a rental property for years but needed a push. Well, on Dec. 1st we took possession of a great 2nd house in a town up the coast and it is currently rented and managed by a property manager. I also increased my husbands and my own automatic retirement savings from 12% to 18% taken directly off our paycheques and put into an RSP. We got our life insurance reviewed and changed and our disability reviewed. I ended up not changing my coverage as what I had I discoverd was as good as I could get.
We also switched our financial advisors. Our old one was very upset and unprofessional in the way he handled it. It was a really hard thing to do.
Your book empowered us to take charge of our financial life. I look forward to learning more and taking more active steps to improve our life.
Thanks very much for your book.
