I have to pay off my mortgage as soon as I can.
I can't go on vacation because I can't afford it.
My kids need the "latest thing," brand new.
I'll have the life I want later.
Any of these sound familiar?Of course they do--they're notions that are so well established in our minds, they feel like common sense. But they're all wrong.
For most of us, money is a taboo subject rarely discussed with our friends, family, or significant others. We think everyone else knows more about this important subject than we do -- so like sex, we joke about it and avoid dealing with it. Our lack of knowledge leads to faulty ideas that drive our lifestyle decisions -- often in the wrong direction.
Now, Karen Ramsey, an experienced, fee-only certified financial planner, shatters those myths and shows anyone how to take control of their finances and realize their dreams. Divided into two parts," Everything You Know about Money Is Wrong" begins by exploding our twenty-one biggest money myths. Do you think you should pay off your mortgage as soon as possible? Do you have to save, no matter what? Do you think that it's mandatory to fund your children's college tuition? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you need the insights and wisdom Ramsey delivers, using examples from her clients' own lives.
In part two, Ramsey outlines her proven, easy-to-follow personal spending plan that will help you get your financial life on track. You don't have to put off living, depriving yourself of a dream vacation or sticking with a terrible job just to pay the bills. There are other options if you have a plan.
Let Karen Ramsey help you find the roadto happiness and financial security -- without deprivation.
