Wow, I saw you on Oprah and thought great, another great idea. I went to our local Chapters Book Store and I noticed your name on a book. I decided to check it out. Was I ever glad I did – a Canadian Version to boot. I started reading it Wednesday and finished it this morning. I found of interest too the fact that you took the time to rewrite the book for Canadians with up-to-date references and facts. I was quite impressed by this and it allowed me to keep reading it. Now I have a good financial reference book.
I have to say it was enlightening to me and a little embarrassing too. You see like most people (I’m sure) I knew a lot of this but it was the automatic thing that got me. Go figure I can pay my bills automatically too right from my own bank account. Well I put some early concepts to use right away and asked about a pay day loan I have had for a while and was always re-borrowing at a ridiculous fee. They waved all interest and brokers fees and are accepting bi-weekly payments until it is paid off. I am now asking others I have similar loans with. This one step saved me $46 this month and paid for the book, the trip to the bookstore and a little bit more. The part on charities, your tithing chapter, was of particular interest as I have always done volunteer work in my local community.
Your automatic method will help me with a lot of my day to day expenses too. I will be setting up a bi-weekly bill payment with my bank for my gas, hydro, cable, home phone and cell phone. I even have a private loan for $300 a month and I will be re-issuing cheques to them for bi-weekly payments.
I just wanted to let you know that you have inspired me to take action and I will be sharing this book with a lot of my friends. Indeed I will be emailing most of them and recommending your book to them tonight. From the bottom of my empty pocket I want to thank you for the opportunity to fill my pocket with some real cash. Thank You.
