Although my only debt is my home I was always proud of that until my friend told me how she saw you on Opera and about your book. I’m always interested in handling my money better so I ordered your book. Boy was I blown away. From reading your book I realized how much money I could be saving and how much sooner I could pay my house off. I’ve been doing alot of sending $200 extra dollars towards the principal on my mortgage and then as I read your book more I decided to send $300 extra per month. You got me charged up. At first as I was reading your book I thought this is for people in debt, deep debt but as I read on I realized “hey since I’m out of debt I can even me a millionare sooner then if I was”. I saw you when they reaired the Oprah show and I’m even charged up more. I’ve since called my nephew and have spoken with him. I told him, I’m 40 and your 21 imagine where you could be at my age and I showed him the numbers. He’s getting excited. I have so many more people to share this with.
The “latte factor” and “what if” are always on my mind and keep me on track.
By the way when I get my bonus or raise I know longer think of ways to spend it but ways to save it.
