If someone in your life needs help getting their finances in order…

Our index card book may be helpful to young people starting out. it may also be helpful to others buying a first home, and to others trying to get the basic essentials right while avoiding bad mistakes such as trying to beat the market or day trade. It’s about ten bucks. We think it’s useful.

  1. Nice but isn't it ironic writing a whole book about the ideas that should fit on an index card?

  2. Harold, read your book & bought my daughter a copy.

    Wish I had it 40 years ago, but it may not be too late for her 🙂


  3. What would you recommend teaching kids in elementary vs middle and high school students? I'd love to teach this to kids.
