We started with our own children. We sat down and began to compile a book of all the things that work when it comes to saving money for short-term and long-term goals. We made a list of the ways to accelerate savings and the ways to avoid fees and actually scams so that we can keep more of our money to save and invest.
HOW MUCH DO YOU MAKE?
So many Americans are focused on how much they make. We tried to write a guide that shifts that focus to what you keep, save and invest out of the total “pie” that you earn. That is the real way to measure how you are doing in your personal financial life.
SAVE MORE OF YOUR OWN MONEY
As we continued to write these lists and strategies on how to accelerate savings and investing, it became clear that we could really help a lot of people figure out how to save more of their income no matter what they earn. We could actually help them trick themselves into wealth-building.
HOW TO SURVIVE ANY FINANCIAL CRISIS
That’s when we set off to complete “How To Survive Any Financial Crisis” and offer it for sale. The question then became: How much do you charge or do you give the book away for free? That lead us to put it on the internet as an e-book at http://www.middleclassmoney.com.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BUILD WEALTH?
We really struggled with what to charge for the e-book. If it was free, more people would read it. Right? But then we saw all kinds of information saying if you don’t charge something people won’t respect it and they won’t read it. That is when we settled on charging $4.95 for the e-book if people want to go beyond the basics and learn more tricks to save and invest to build real wealth. It’s not very much, but you have to want it bad enough to spend a Lincoln on “How To Survive Any Financial Crisis.”
Still, we knew we wanted to offer FREE opportunities to for people who didn’t have the $4.95 to begin with. That’s why we have two (2) free blogs (www.stickyasset.com/blog and http://www.boostmywealth.wordpress.com) and a FREE Facebook group (“Live The Lifestyle Your Family Deserves”).
So, there are no excuses for anyone who comes in contact with our free personal finance blogs, free Facebook groups or http://www.middleclassmoney.com (where you can purchase “How To Survive Any Financial Crisis” for $4.95).
TEACH YOUR CHILDREN WELL
In this country we don’t do enough to teach our children about money, managing money, saving regularly (and automatically), compound interest and steady investing for a long-term future. As a parent, we are always concerned that they get a good education and go to a good college so they can make a lot of money or have a valued career path. The truth is that we could do our children the biggest favor and one of the best things by sharing with them sound saving and investing principles.
You can join our free Facebook group (or have your children do it, too) by searching in the Facebook bar on your “wall” for “Live The Lifestyle Your Family Deserves.” Click on “become a fan.” It’s free and it ties our free blogs into that group.
If you want to give your children the same information we are giving ours, you can purchase the only thing we sell on any of our blogs or groups. It’s called “How To Survive Any Financial Crisis” and you can get it for only $4.95 at http://www.middleclassmoney.com.
Thank you for reading our blog and good luck!
