In my book Forever Cash, I stress the importance of getting a hold on your finances. In fact, I gave Chapter 8 a somewhat controversial title: “Your job income has nothing to do with your financial success.” In that chapter, I tried to help my readers to understand that simply making more money is one way to help your situation but learning how to manage your money is even more important.

You might not believe your neighbor who says that he can run his truck on old french fry grease, but after you see his gasoline bill drop to zero his claim is a little more credible - and has probably piqued your curiosity somewhat. When you first signed up for one of my programs, you were probably pretty excited about the possibilities, right? You heard testimonials, you saw how easy my methods are, and you were rearing to go.
