A few years ago I expereinced the incredible emotional and financial devastation of a divorce. I lost my home, my kid’s college funds and all my savings (not to mention my job).
For 4 years I wandered through financial struggles and fear for my future. Then one day I turned on “Oprah” and caught the last half of your interview. It was enough to motivate me to buy “The Automatic Millionaire”.
Upon finishing your great book, I signed up for our church’s (did I mention I’m a pastor?) automatic withdrawal program and matching funds by contributing 10% of my income. I didn’t think I could afford to but I knew I couldn’t afford to live in fear. Guess what? I hardly missed the money! And I passed the book around as required reading to all of my staff.
Six months later i upped it to 15%. I still survived! Two months ago I raised it to 20%! And I’m a single parent raising 4 kids – 2 in college!
Last week I bought your new book “Start Late, Finish Rich” and next month my contirbution goes to 25%. You see, I’m 48 and I have some serious ground to make up. But now i know i can do it.
I want to thank you so much for your influence in my life. I no longer live in fear that I will be a burden to my children. Now I know I will be a blessing! (Especially since this is now required reading for my college girls).
Furthermore, I have decided to organize a Coaching seminar for all 400 of our church’s members. They need to know what I know.
Thanks a million David,
