I just finished your book The Automatic Millionaire and I have to say – and you’ve probably heard this before – but I am FIRED UP! Throughout the book, I kept telling myself, “Hurry up and finish so you can start!” I’m one of those who has to read all the details first and then make the move.
Oh, my name is Sylvina and I’m married and have no kids yet. I’ve bought many books on money management, read some, but not all. Some sit on my shelf and collect dust for me. But your book was different. There are several different reasons why your book was different, but I can’t pin-point just one.
Perhaps it’s a quick read, a simple read, you started with a story about real life average Joe’s doing it and making it seem easy. Who knows, but it’s working – at least for me.
You see I pretty much knew it all about how to get outta debt, stay outta debt, what I should be doing as far as investing for retirement – everything! But did I live it? Not exactly. I even worked on a TV program called the Money Machine (on the cable TV network Tech TV) which taught people about personal finance and investing using technology. So when I looked at my finances, I thought, how did I get into so much debt??? Between our credit cards, school
loans, cars, etc… it was embarrassing!
So I just want to say thank you for giving me whatever I needed to get into action! You cover all the bases. In other words, as I read your tips, I thought, “yeah but…. yeah but… yeah but…” Like paying your mortgage bi-weekly. My yeah but was “I’m not paying a fee to do that…” and of course you covered that too. But guess what? (And I know you’ll be proud.) I thought of just paying extra on my mortgage once a month to
equal out a full extra payment a year before reading it in your book!
You have fired up yet one more “future millionaire”!
