I wanted to thank you for your book, Automatic Millionaire. My sister gave me the book for Christmas close to one year ago. After reading it herself, she felt it necessary to share with someone about to enter the work force. My only regret is that I wish I had read the book sooner. I read it in May of this year while on vacation before entering the US Army as an Infantry Lieutenant. I could not stop myself from devouring the book while on vacation and penning notes in the margins on what my plan of action would be. Upon return from vacation I followed your steps all before my first day of employment. 5 months after beginning my duty to the Army and enacting your fool proof plan, I am confident to say that I am well on my to financial success. I have managed to pay off my $6,000 student loan, save $2,000 for retirement (and will reach my goal of maxing out my Roth IRA contributions by the end of the year), possess $1,000 in emergency funds, and possess multiple automatic money market accounts to save money for vacations home and Christmas. I have managed to do this all while obtaining and furnishing my first apartment. I attribute my ability to avoid the debt trap that many of my peers have slipped into to your book.
I could not keep this bundle of information to myself. I passed the book on to a fellow Lieutenant. I have purchased Smart Women Finish Rich and Smart Couples Finish Rich for my girlfriend. And I have already convinced two 18 year old Privates (soldiers) to start saving their money according to the plan you provided. I even made the phone calls to USAA to get them started. I hope to share the valuable information you have provided with my family and my platoon.
In a few months I will be leading 42 of America’s finest. One of my duties is to look after them, which includes their financial wellbeing. I plan on sharing the information I have gained from your book with them. If I could convince one of my 18 year old privates to invest, he’ll be one step ahead of me when I started at age 21.
Thank you very much. The simple and clear writing style of your book has prevented your book from alienating any audience. Because of that simple style, I am able to share the book with anyone.
