Now in paperback: The "New York Times" bestselling author and star of A&E's reality series "Big Spender," Larry Winget, cleans up America's personal finance crisis
More than 40 percent of families today are feeling financial pressure: spending more than they earn, and worrying about retiring and being dependent on the government, family, or charity. Larry Winget knows. He grew up poor, then made and lost a fortune when a business in which he?d invested went bankrupt. But he worked his way back from rock bottom to become a multimillionaire.
In "You?re Broke Because You Want to Be," Winget expands on the ideas that have made his popular television show "Big Spender" a hit and offers straightforward talk about coming to grips with your finances, such as:
- Feel bad. Have remorse. You need to feel deep emotion to take action. So start crying and take responsibility.
- Figure out who you owe and how much you owe. It?ll be a scary number to face, but you need to know where you are and what you have.
- ?People are stupid, lazy, or they don't give a damn.? You already know you "need" to do something; Larry will help you finally "do" something.
- Are you more interested in looking cool and being cute or providing a financially secure future for your family? How you spend your money will tell you that. With a boot-camp regimen that is steeped in personal accountability, Winget cuts through the double-talk contained in most finance books and presents a simple, guided program that is sure to motivate anyone out of their money problems.
