News on distribution of and how to order Back to the Island in next week's blog.
This week is probably the last time I mention If I Had a Million Dollars: How to Achieve Financial Independence Before Your Parents Do. I am still doing lectures at various colleges and universities. UMD this week. BSM, my alma mater, the next. Vermilion Community College pays for all incoming freshman to receive a book. The three thousand that were printed will be gone soon...not sure I will have any more printed. I wrote the book as an easy read for young people (appropriate, of course, for any age) who had to change money habits (pay themselves) AND learn to INVEST. History is showing that they have to educate themselves, nobody will do it for them. And, the Millennials are projected to be the generation most worse off...due not to their fault, YET. When you hear about the "rich" getting richer and the poorer, poorer, that has a lot to do with having investments. If you have investments, you're getting richer, if you don't you're falling behind inflation and getting poorer. Way too many of the boomer and following generations will run out of money if they don't change habits, putting a burden on the young.
Things need to change.
Young people must educate themselves, or, if can mentor someone, there are questions at the end of each chapter providing a track to go on. Last chance: to order go to www.timmunkeby.com, Use "Buy Online from Itasca Books online bookstore" and put in discount code "student" (even if you aren't). Good luck (although luck has little to do with it).
