Get Your Assets In Gear! Smart Money Strategies Sep 17, 2008
I bought Jan Geiger's book for myself. After reading it, I couldn't wait to give it to my 23 year old daughter. We both thought we had relatively good money habits; I own my own business and my daughter has had jobs since she was 11. After reading this book, I think the biggest change in both of us is realizing that the little things do count, especially over time. We are both much more careful with our money and make conscious, rather than mindless decisions about where our money goes. Jan made this process so easy that her suggestions were effortless to adopt. It is so satisfying to have a plan and feel in control. I now know I will reach my financial goals.
Before my daughter read Jan's book, she knew she wanted to gain financial independence, but really didn't know where to start. She realized some people in this country were millionaires, but had never thought, not once, that she could be one of them. In the first week, she adopted Jan's envelope system of budgeting and was shocked to find out how much money she had been spending. Like most of us, she really didn't know she was spending too much. By limiting purchases to the budgeted amount in each envelope, she was able to add to her savings account rather than make withdrawals. She now has a plan for the next 30 years that includes buying her vehicles (eventually in cash), buying a home, staying out of debt (except a mortgage), saving at least 10% of her income and ... becoming a millionaire. I can't tell you how excited and relieved she is because she now has a plan.
I think this book has the power to change the world, for young and old alike. Almost everyone wants to be good with their money, but few of us have had good teachers or mentors to guide the way. Jan Geiger's book, Get Your Assets In Gear, is easy to read, clear, fun and uplifting. For anyone wanting to change their financial life for the better, this is a must read.
Sound Advice Aug 27, 2008
As a professional attorney with more than 10 years of experience in commercial transactions, estate planning, and probate law, I highly recommend this informative, useful book. The author communicates in a coherent, lucid fashion and her expertise is beyond question. Unlike many self-help books in the area of finance, "Get Your Assets in Gear" provides sound, practical advice with a minimum of technical jargon and hackneyed adages. It makes an excellent gift for a recent college graduate. Money invested purchasing this book is money well spent. A careful reader will reap the benefits of Ms. Geiger's suggestions many times over.
This book is inspiring and engaging and practical! Aug 25, 2008
This book has changed my life. I always found finance and money -dull and boring because I didn't understand how it worked. I figured, I don't make a lot of money, so I'll never be rich. Jan has managed to step by step explain how money works, how to make it work for you, how to save and where to cut spending. It is fun to read and I have become excited about getting my "assets in gear." I was relieved to read that it isn't how much money you make that really matters, but the percentage you decide to save that really makes a difference. I am really excited about my financial future for the first time since my divorce eight years ago. I finally believe that financial security is attainable. Thank you, Jan!
So clear, even a CPA can understand it Jul 16, 2008
I know, I know, CPAs are supposed to understand everything about finance and investing. Well, this CPA can audit multi-billion dollar companies and play hard ball with the pros, but when it comes to smart, sound, strategic personal investing and asset allocation, I'm afraid I'm in the bush league.
I liked the book because it discussed all of the key areas that I need to consider (debt, interest, lease vs. own, mortgages, philanthropy, stocks, bonds, funds, 401Ks, IRAs, credit ratings, taxes, insurance, attitude, and marital money matters), but it covered them in an easy-to-understand, clear, positive and entertaining way that left me hopeful rather than overwhelmed.
I finished the book armed with knowledge, a clear path forward, and most of all, a positive, confident feeling that I can now put my arms around what used to be a black hole, squeeze tight, and know that my assets are now in gear.
The BEST & easiest to implement financial book EVER. Jul 4, 2008
Get Your Assets in Gear was the answer to questions I've always had about finances. One of my goals in life is to always have enough money to cover my living expenses and still have more for pleasure. This book tells you exactly how to save enough to be financially fit and happy along the road to financial independence. I am so excited that I am 23 years old and have this book, because I am now 100% positive that I will have the life, financial and otherwise, life that I want. I have always found finances difficult to comprehend between 401k, stocks, mutual funds, loans, etc. Get Your Assets in Gear makes it crystal clear what each of them are, and what the perks are of each. This book gets a huge thumbs up for making each point clear, specific, and attainable, and the icing on the cake is that it was an easy, fun read!
