I was a single, self-supporting 40 year old woman when I purchased your book ‘Start Late, Finish Rich.’ Like a lot of the stories in the book, financially my situation appeared bleak.
I didn’t have any assets and was living pay-check-to-pay check. What made matters worse, was that I had credit card debt. However, when you emphasized the importance of owning a home and wrote, “do it.” It stuck and I did just what you suggested. I literally called a real estate agent that very day.
Within three months, I was a first-time homeowner. It gets better – by the time closing day came I had built up $15,000 equity in the home!
