A few months ago, a very excited co-worker gave me “Automatic Millionaire” to read. Not being an avid reader, I accepted the book and promised to read it. After the first few pages, I could not put the book down. I was so interested and excited because the information became proof that I was on the proper financial track with my mortgage payments, 401K and other investments. However, there was a significant amount of additional information that gave me a push to keep moving forward with my financial goals. Within 2 months, I also read ” Smart Women Finish Rich and “Start Late Finish Rich”.
David, you deserve a hugh “pat on the back” along with a “job well done”. The information you provide is of great value. I wish your course was required in all high schools as a credit requirement for graduation. Never in my life would I ever imagine having conversations with others about financial issues but now it seems to be a regular topic. I wanted to share all this knowledge and opportunity with anyone and everyone. At first, I shared the information with my husband and daughter then with co-workers and friends. But something was missing. I wanted to go beyond that. I asked myself “Who could benefit the most from this information” and the answer became very clear, my clients!
Allow me to explain, I am employed with a legal firm and specialize in Workers’ Compensation claims. All of our clients have been injured, leaving them with a permanent physical disability to live with. Most have lost their jobs, homes, vehicles, saving (if they had any), significant other, their confidence and self respect due to the fact that these types of claims can be very stressful and difficult to deal with and can also take years to remedy. Many clients due return back to the workforce after rehabilitation, treatment or therapy but in reality are “starting all over” physically, financially and emotionally. Therefore, I started purchasing your books and giving them to my clients as a gift. I figured that if anyone needed a second chance in the right direction for a great financial future, it would be my clients. The response has been amazing. One client called me immediatly and said that I made her cry (I was worried that I upset her). She told me that no one had ever sent her a gift for no given reason or thought enough of her to even think of sending her anything and she was very touched. A few weeks later, this same client stopped by my office, she stood in my door way and said” Quess what” of course I responded with “I have no idea, so please tell me”. She said “I’m going to be rich” and my reply was “Good, that is what I wanted to hear”. My client also advised me that she since she received your book, she has already started the process of purchasing a home, opened a money market and is looking into some of the other options suggested. She also advised me that if she was going to be rich, she wanted to be around long enough to enjoy her wealth and therefore, she joined a health program which has allowed her to lose approximantly 30 pounds to date and was able to discontinue one of the blood pressure medications. I am so pround of her and hope she continues to do well. Thank you so much for sharing your knowlege and advise, it is making a difference is someone’s life daily.
