What They Say

Need Help With Money?

Be ready for a complete personal finance paradigm shift, and to be inspired to begin your journey. This practical financial road-map is written in plain English for people who like me, have financial aspirations, little mental energy to commit to the process of a personal financial overhaul and even less interest in personal finance. If I were naming this book, I would have chosen something like, “Need Help With Money? Start Here."




Money Temperaments Is the Gateway to Financial Freedom

Human behavior is a subject of intrigue to me. About ten years ago, needing financial understanding, I silently sat and listened to Ted explain behavioral finance. And for the first time in my life I was able to make a connection between my behavior and money. Our temperaments, influences how we spend, save, and invest our money. Ten years later, I'm running a successful media  corporation and with a smile. I can attest to this truth; understanding your money temperaments is the gateway to financial freedom.

This Book is a MUST Read for Clients AND Financial Professionals!

As a CFP (Certified Financial Planner) I can't recommend this book enough. It is very thoughtfully written and provides a very common sense way to understand how you are naturally wired to deal with money and financial planning. This book is a MUST read for clients AND financial professionals! In addition to serving as a great guide it also makes a great "ice breaker" for financial professionals to provide to their clients. Very relevant and helpful content. Well done Ted!
