When some people learn about the financial services I
offer, they invariably say, “Oh, those services are for people with ‘bad
credit’.I don’t need those
services.”It reminds me of how when
some people hear a sermon, they say, “I know someone who really needs to hear
this sermon” not realizing or admitting that sermon was really meant for them!
If 90% of the American adult population is struggling
financially due to overspending and exorbitant finance charges, chances are YOU
need my financial services though ego, denial, and worse, apathy may tell you
otherwise.The foremost expert on the
study of the affluent, Thomas Stanley, who wrote Millionaire Next Door,
created the following formula to estimate what your net worth (assets –
liabilities) should be at your current age:
Suggested Net Worth = 0.10 X Your Current Age X Annual
Net Income (income after taxes)
If your current net worth is less than the result of the
above equation, you’re dangerously unprepared and vulnerable financially.Translation:YOU need my financial services.
If you took the time to perform the above calculation,
you know the result.Now that you know
your financial position, what are you going to do to change it?Call me today to begin increasing your net
worth so that you are financially prepared and protected.It’s your money . . . until you give it away.

The Can't Miss Way of Building Your Savings

putting the money aside to spend at a later date for targeted needs and wants.Once you embrace this approach, you begin to
“spend” your savings every month or pay period just like any other line item in
your forecast (budget for those who haven’t switched to a forecasting
The best way to “spend” your savings is to set up an
automatic withdrawal to an interest-bearing account that is not easy to
access.If you set it up this way, it
becomes just another “bill” in your forecast, and you condition yourself to
live without it until you really need it.
I can hear a whole chorus of people saying, “But Ray, I
don’t have enough money left over to save!”In most cases, after you complete a financial worksheet and a spending
planner (I provide both templates by request.), you and I can usually find at
least 1% of your monthly income that can be sent to savings.For many, it’s usually $300 – $600 per
month.Imagine your savings accumulating
at that rate every month.
Call me today to start the “delayed spending” approach towards
savings and begin building a savings that can be used when you really need
it.It’s your money . . . until you give
