Why I Love This Book and Can’t Wait to Give It Away
I read this book a little over 2 years ago. The reason it’s such a great book is that it really forces you to simplify things. Sure, there are about a million and one things you can do with your money, but what are your TRUE goals? What are your top 10-15 financial goals that you want to accomplish in life? Once you get those on paper, it’s just a matter of figuring out a simple plan to achieve each goal.
After reading the book, my wife Liz and I sat down and wrote out our near-term goals. In fact, here’s our actual list!
Since writing out all of our goals on paper, we’ve literally crossed everything off on this list other than “Retire at 45” (I’m only 35 now…so we’ve got some time)! Isn’t that just incredible??!
I love this book, and I just can’t wait to give it away to hopefully help that next person as much as it’s helped us!

My name is Derek, and I have my Bachelors Degree in Finance from Grand Valley State University. After graduation, I was not able to find a job that fully utilized my degree, but I still had a passion for Finance! So, I decided to focus my passion in the stock market. I studied Cash Flows, Balance Sheets, and Income Statements, put some money into the market and saw a good return on my investment. As satisfying as this was, I still felt that something was missing. I have a passion for Finance, but I also have a passion for people. If you have a willingness to learn, I will continue to teach.
