I have never read any of your advice but I am halfway through the The Automatic Millionaire and I really like it. I will be sharing this book with my wife when I am done. It is simple enough to read and keep someone’s attention, and that is very important.
I own a successful medical equipment business and honestly I have heard for a long time that I am very good with money, but recently I have found myself purchasing and spending money that I would normally never spend. I think I started getting caught up with “keeping up with the Joneses.” I contribute all that I can to my 401k and Simple plan but after reading your book, I have decided to include my wife in the retirement plan as well. I also have emailed my financial advisor/broker and asked him to set me up with an additional $250 a month auto pay towards some kind of conservative investment such as a mutual fund. This book has allowed me to refocus on the things that are important in saving money. I am always concerned with the “rainy day”. I purchased several copies of your book and I am going to give them to some of my employees that I think can benefit greatly from it. I will keep your book in a library I am starting at my office so that anyone has access to it. Happy employees are good workers and I have many that live paycheck to paycheck even though they are making very good salaries. Again, the length and material in your book make it easy to read which will ultimately help a lot of the people that really need it. I appreciate your ideas and thank you for your thoughts.
