“Mind Over Money” is not so much about your money as it is about your mind. It’s about your attitude and approach to money. It’s not hard to make money if you are careful and sussed – millionaires are two a penny today. But, keeping it is the problem. That’s what smart people do. It’s what you need to do. Playwright Tennessee Williams said, “ You can be young without money but you can’t be old without it.” Bear this in mind – today’s 30 and 40 year olds will live to be 100 years old. Teenagers will crack 120 years easily. That’s a long time to live in “retirement”. Will your money last?
This title is about how to live from womb to tomb in such a way that you can live – and die – in comfort. Along the way the authors show you how to grow up happy; choose the right careers (forget what your parents and teachers say); understand why Baby Boomers can’t stop shopping and why the Silent generation saves like mad and always pays cash for everything. You’ll appreciate your teenager, your father, your wife, your grandchild’s attitudes to money – at last. Best of all – you’ll understand yourself!
