The genesis of this tome dates back a few years. I detected a lack of financial savvy amongst younger folk. Granted, I didn't perform exhaustive research. I studied and asked probative questions of any youngin' who would tolerate me. The results were eye-opening and confirmed my suspicions.
In this book, the reader will travel through every life stage from birth to death, exploring the myriad touchpoints affecting their financial life. My goals are multifold — to create not so much an instruction manual but a compendium of best practices for managing your personal finances. I share my own experiences from almost six decades on planet Earth hoping my trials and tribulations provide a deeper understanding. And maybe a good laugh. Sort of like a money memoir if such a creature exists. My number one goal, though, is to make it all fun, enlightening and most of all useful.
