So you feel like youve started late?
You are not alone.
What if I told you that right now as you flip through this book, 70% of the people in the store with you are living paycheck to paycheck?
What if I told you that the man browsing the aisle to your left owes more than $8,000 in credit card debt? And the woman on your right has less than $1,000 in savings?
See? Youre really not alone.
Unfortunately, the vast majority of people whove saved too little and borrowed too much will never catch up financially. Why? Because they dont know how.
