Money is the opposite of the weather. Nobody talks about it, but everybody does something about it.
This probably applies to everyone, unless you live in sunny Death Valley, California, with 2.36 inches of rain per year. Just a tiny drop makes major headlines. But if you’re one of those people who doesn’t discuss money, that’s about to change.
As we all know, money isn’t everything; but it is right up there with really important stuff like breathing. And because the subject of money has both good and bad information being taught and even carried down through generations, you may wish to review these common statements and phrases and see if you are already subjective or biased on the subject of money.
Let’s start with a question . . .
Are you Money Savvy or Financially Illiterate?
Consider the following common statements you may have heard or said before:
- Spend it, I’m only young once.
- It’s only zero percent interest.
- I work hard and deserve it.
- I’m not sure what’s in my bank account; my spouse deals with our finances and I don’t know much about investing.
- My parent takes care of it for me.
- Investing is like gambling.
- I’ll get to it later, and later never comes.
If you’ve ever uttered a variation of one of these phrases, this book is for you. If you’ve decided to take the bull by the horns and learn about your financial health, this book is for you. (The bull reference is not my idea of a financial pun, I promise. And if you don’t get that little joke, all the more reason to keep reading.)
I’ll show you that diving into your finances doesn’t have to be painful. After you’re done reading this book, big numbers will no longer scare you—at least, not too much. And you’ll know the ins and outs of your personal wealth so well that your financial advisors will wonder as to whether you should start advising them instead.
Thanks for getting my book. As I enter my 37th year as a professional, I’m proud to share with you the common financial blunders, hiccups, screw-ups, and scams we have all done, heard about, or seen on a continual basis when it comes to the Three Blind Mice. As for the Three Blind Mice, well, the beat goes on—it’s the same ol’, same ol’, as a simple shift in their practice could benefit others yet old–school practices continue at your risk.
Feel free to visit www.3Blindmice.com for great information and insight to protect and grow your hard-earned money.
