I have read The Automatic Millionaire (loved it) and Smart Women Finish Rich and the workbook (still reading). I have recently sold land and promised myself I would get our family financial situation organized. My husband and I have never ever given thought to this. We would get money and blow it all. Well before we sold this land we were in dire straits, we had no money. We lived on so little and could not pay any bills. I vowed if we could turn this around I would never let this happen again. That is when I bought your book.
Well we recieved the money from the land and as soon as I did, I sat down and paid over 40 bills, 3 which were credit cards, and paid them off. I no longer have any credit cards. I paid all of our insurances for the year. I paid our taxes. It was the best feeling in the world. I bought Automatic Millionaire 3 days ago. It was the best thing I have ever done for myself. In those three days I have read the book, started my retirement account (fully funded for 2003 with $3000), started my rainy day account with a goal of 4 months worth of expenses, picked a charity and will start that, all automated! I cannot tell you how proud and happy I am of myself. A year ago I was another person.
I cannot thank you enough for all you have done and this is one thing I will stick to for the rest of my life. The latte factor has changed alot for me. As a matter of fact, I share it with anyone who will listen. This is the first book I have ever read that has made a difference in my life (and that I read from front to back!)
