Young Money Masters Reviews

 

Anthony Swisher;  Shreveport, LA;  Oil & Gas Businessman

 

What unique features of the manual will appeal to teenagers?

"It's simple with just a few key points to remember."

 

After reading the manual, what are three or four points that will really help young adults?

"Just a little bit of money saved consistently when you are young grows to a large amount. You don't have to be a financial wizard to invest properly for the long haul. You have to take charge of your own finances and make it a point to save or else it won't get done."

 

How did Wealth Creators do during the order processing, shipping, and following up on your order?

"I knew what was going on every step of the way. I received my manuals quickly."

 

In what specific ways will you benefit from your children reading the manual?

"It helps for my kids to see these principles written by someone instead of hearing about them from a parent. As a parent we probably overload our kids with too much info instead of sticking to the simple basics."

 

What would you say to a friend who was thinking about getting the manual for their teenager but was not quite sure?

"I would tell them that the manual supplies all a kid needs to know about how to save and what the end result can be. It's so simple that there can be no misunderstanding about what it takes and it is therefore up to the kid to either do it and reap the benefits or not do it and have to scramble through life like most people do. It takes the monkey off the parents back."

 

What else do you think potential customers should know?

"They can read the manual in 25 minutes themselves to know that it is presenting the same principles and values that they have."

    This book, or manual, as it is referred to by the author, should be a gift to all high school and college students.  I wish I had had it when I first started out.  It is well written, concise and very informative.  

     

     At one point he says, “Once you have decided on your goals, it would be a great idea to write them down and review them regularly.” This is wonderful advice for all of young people’s goals in all aspects of their lives.

 

    Lewis gives excellent information on how to plan for your future starting out in life.  He does it in a manner that is not preachy or condescending, but is straight to the point.  He presents young people values that they can and should follow to have a future that is debt free and gives them ideas on how to be prepared for retirement – something teens think they have all the time in the world to plan for.  

 

     He uses very interesting concepts to illustrate his points.  He asks his readers to visualize a bathtub filling up, and then draining out.  Controlling the flow of the water (income and expenses) is the key to a successful financial future.

 

    Lewis’ advice to young adults is sound and based on the tried and true.  His book describes tenants that young adults just starting out can use in several aspects of their lives.  It will give them a great basis for a secure future.

    I read and enjoyed your insightful book, Young Money Masters. You're identifying disciplines and paths to follow are presented in a straightforward and clear manner that will reward all who follow the steps you outline.

 

    I especially like the audience your target. As you'll no doubt recall, the young think that tomorrow will never come, hence, why plan for it. "Now is where it's at!" Your book should dispel this illusion.

 

    I will give your book to my great nephew, a high school junior, who is bright, inquisitive, and participating in some science projects, sponsored by his school, Lockheed Martin, and Colorado School of Mines.

    Tackling the study of finances is often put off until it is too late to establish preventative measures.  Young Money Masters by Lewis Mansfield Johnson makes this process seem simple and very understandable.  It is a great resource for adults seeking a method to explain complicated money processes to young adults or even for older folks to make sense of the many financial options available to them such as retirement plans, bonds, stocks, mutual funds and diversification.

 

    I loved all the concrete examples that were included and think they would have wide audience appeal.  I can't decide if my favorite story is about the bunnies or the bathtub.  You'll have to read the book to decide for yourself.  Everyone should own this book!  You can read it quickly but the information will impact you for a long time afterwards.
