My whole life I spent trying to catch up to everyone else. I came from nothing, and it took a lot for me to feel adequate - both mentally and economically - around others. It took me 33 years, but having sold a successful financial advice business, I can proudly say I finally got there. But now I'm not done, I want others to get there also. No matter how far I've come, I'll always just be that simple dude, living at the end of a dirt road, right on the beach. And that simplicity has stayed with me. I believe everyone can do better if they have access to simple information. So while this book doesn't explain everything, it will help you avoid spending too much time at work, not achieving your lifestyle goals, or failing to build long term assets. Because this book is written at the intersection of lifestyle and money. It's focus is on the outcome of money, not just on making 'more of if'. So it will do for you, what it's done for my clients, my friends and myself - show you how to fund your ideal lifestyle.
