Investing Introduction For Adults

There are already hundreds of books written about investing. Why another one?

  • According to recent surveys, more than 80% of Americans have very little or no knowledge about money essentials. Most high school graduates are financially illiterate.
  • Millions marry and start families each year without taking basic steps to make sure their future, as well as their children's, is financially secure.
    • According to a recent survey by Princeton University and the Consumer Federation of America, 70% of households with incomes under $50,000 a year have retirement savings of less than $5,000. This same report said "most Americans are living paycheck to paycheck".

    • Most two-income couples spend 4,000 hours each year earning money, and maybe a few hours planning how to invest it.

    • 140 million people are living at, or just above, the poverty level. Over a million single mothers work 2 jobs, or are looking for a second job.

    • Social Security will give no one a comfortable retirement.

    • Most books that promise to teach basic investing in a simple way are very little help in the real world.

    • "The amount of erroneous information and ignorance about how the stock market really works and how to succeed in the market is downright unbelievable"
      -How to Make Money In Stocks, by William J. O'Neil

    This book not only promises to teach investing basics in plain English, but promises and guarantees to all who act on the advice given here, a rewarding and better life.

    When you’re broke and living paycheck to paycheck, you have painful feelings of hopelessness, anger, embarrassment, oppression, fear, guilt, frustration, anxiety, and helplessness. There must be a way out of such a money mess. Yes, there is.

    Imagine the contentment you'll experience when you replace those awful feelings with direction, accomplishment, self-confidence, security and happiness. Close your eyes for a moment and imagine yourself wealthy, with no debt, ready to enjoy all the good things that life has to offer. Do you want to be rich? Are you ready?

    I'm revealing a golden path to riches. But all the knowledge in the world about investing won't benefit you if you don't take the time to understand the concepts of spending wisely, investing and sheltering your investments from taxes, and putting into practice the suggestions offered in this book.

    Yes, you can become a millionaire. Apparently this is a popular dream. There are now 207 books with the word "millionaire" in the title.

    You don't have to be a tightwad to become a millionaire. You don't have to be an expert on the stock market to become a millionaire. You don't have to wait until you retire to enjoy the good life. But you do need the desire and the discipline to follow the plan presented here.

    I'm going to show you exactly how and where to easily save and invest a few dollars every day. "Big deal!" you say. Well, yes it is. This will someday give you an extra $100,000 to spend every year, and you may never have to pay taxes on this fortune.

    To be fair, there are ways to get rich quick. You could marry a millionaire. You could inherit a fortune. You could strike oil or discover gold. You could become a successful movie star or rock star. You could become the world’s best golfer or basketball player. You could become a high-level drug dealer or hold a rich person for ransom (just kidding!).

    Of course you could even
    win $1,000,000 by:
    Odds
    • Playing slot machines in a casino
    • Win a state lottery 27 million to 1
    • Publisher's Clearing House Sweepstakes
    • McDonalds contest / game

    6 million to 1
    27 million to 1
    70 million to 1
    135 million to 1

    These people need a professional financial consultant. The rest of us, here in the real world, keep reading.

    To put these odds into perspective, you have a greater chance of being killed by something falling out of the sky such as an airplane (17 million to 1 odds), than winning the lottery (27 million to 1).

    Hoping to win the lottery is like "heads I win a penny, tails I lose $270,000".

    Forget those sucker lottery tickets, what a waste of money
