You're Broke Because You Want To Be – How to Stop Getting By and Start Getting Ahead
More than 40 percent of families today are feeling financial pressure: spending more than they earn, and worrying about retiring and being dependent on the government, family, or charity. Larry Winget knows. He grew up poor, then made and lost a fortune when a business in which he'd invested went bankrupt. But he worked his way back from rock bottom to become a multimillionaire.
In You're Broke Because You Want to Be, Winget expands on the ideas that have made his popular television show Big Spender a hit and offers straightforward talk about coming to grips with your finances, such as:
· Feel bad. Have remorse. You need to feel deep emotion to take action. So start crying and take responsibility. · Figure out who you owe and how much you owe. It'll be a scary number to face, but you need to know where you are and what you have. · 'People are stupid, lazy, or they don't give a damn.' You already know you need to do something; Larry will help you finally do something. · Are you more interested in looking cool and being cute or providing a financially secure future for your family? How you spend your money will tell you that.
With a boot-camp regimen that is steeped in personal accountability, Winget cuts through the double-talk contained in most finance books and presents a simple, guided program that is sure to motivate anyone out of their money problems.
