Amazon.com Exclusive: A Letter From Eric Tyson, Author of Let's Get Real About Money!

Nearly two decades ago when I first began my work in financial counseling, I believed that people made financial mistakes due to a lack of personal financial education and due to sales pitches and misleading advertising that led them astray. While I still believe these two factors contribute to a lot of money misery, I’ve learned over the years that counter-productive habits and beliefs sabotage the best laid plans, too.

Let’s Get Real About Money! presents a compilation of what I have learned in my one-on-one work with individuals, as well as current research from leaders in the field into how to best develop productive financial habits and extinguish problematic ones.

Whether you play sports, card games, or enjoy solving crossword puzzles, there’s always room for improvement. This book provides the information, strategies and tools that can truly help you and yours make the most of your money and dreams.

In Let’s Get Real About Money!, I will show you how to organize your finances; take control of your future; make plans you’ll actually implement; save, spend and invest more effectively; choose the right advisors; reduce your risks; and put money where it belongs in your life.

The implicit message from most money books is that more is better. Quite simply it’s not. I know this from direct experience with many clients and readers over the years and this is supported by a wealth of cross-cultural research. It’s all about balance and making the most of what money does pass through our hands. Harmony comes from striking balances and avoiding extreme behaviors.

This action-orientated book provides you with checklists and worksheets that’ll help you start today, get results fast, and makes positive changes that will last a lifetime!
