Some Inspirational Stories Here

TAMCoverI’ve read The Automatic Millionaire by David Bach from cover to cover several times. My poor old softback is looking decidedly dog-eared!

The book takes the form of a parable, telling the story of one couple’s rise from poverty to wealth using some very simple, and counter-intuitive strategies. I’m certain that some embellishment of the story has taken place, however the underlying message is believable. I’ve certainly gained a lot by following the guidance provided.

The book doesn’t provide a ‘follow the bouncing ball’ program. You’ll have to do some research of your own. However, I’m a finance and budgeting gumby and I’ve had very little trouble implementing the strategies.

Overall I’d rate it a 9/10.

Those apron strings need cutting some time. And in these pages I’ll tell you what has changed to give me the courage to cut them……..
