I crafted my message in the form of the story Read Me Or Stay Broke for two important reasons. First, many lessons in business, financial, and related areas are just DRY and BORING. The points are important, but if they fail to connect with people in a way that makes real impact--the value is lost.
Second, I've become very frustrated, even to the point of being mad, as I see many people struggling in these turbulent times. Some have nothing more than a lackof access to information. And those who do have access, often end up overwhelmed and run over by confusion from those who attempt to prove their expertise or authority. This problem has bothered me for years.
So I decided to take some of the most important ideas and break them down into a simplified process for the key steps people need to take action.

I mention these things for one reason. The same reason why you're here. I appreciate my accomplishments because they came from a genuine desire to construct a better life for myself and more importantly, my family--my sons. Read More
In an effort to pay his dying mother’s medical bills, Josh has burned the candle at both ends for far too long. In a last ditch effort to stay afloat, he works even harder. While his boss is breathing down his neck, exhausted and desperate, Josh comes to a simple realization: HE IS BROKE and out of options...until one day, a mysterious woman offers him a challenge. Her company offers him the chance to learn the powerful money secrets of the rich—secrets that have built fortunes for centuries but were always hidden from the public. But there is a catch: If Josh can complete the challenge, his mother’s bills will be paid in full. Fail, and she will die in debt. In his darkest moment, Josh agrees to the challenge.
The gift that keeps on giving!
