A Step-by-Step Guide to Financial Independence
According to recent studies, one in four Americans has no retirement savings, and the average American carries over $90,000 in debt. These sad statistics can lead many to believe that financial independence is an unachievable dream.
In Your Way to True Wealth, Mike Brown gives readers a reason for hope. He provides the path to achieving financial independence in a simple plan that anyone can follow. Mr. Brown begins with the basics: the simple skills that one needs, such as self-discipline and patience, as well as behaviors to avoid, such as fear and trying to predict the future. In a conversational tone, he takes you through each step, from simple techniques for saving and paying off debt to investing and retiring, and it provides a series of mileposts you can use to measure your progress.
This book is a step-by-step guide to defining wealth, creating it, and using it to live free of financial worry.
