Tis the Season for Financial Well-Being

By John Del Vecchio  |  November 21, 2019

Thanksgiving is close at hand. It’s my favorite holiday of the year.

Nothing’s better than indulging in great food, amazing wine, while enjoying a day off from work with the company of friends and family.

Where Thanksgiving stands out among the other holidays is that you don’t have to get gifts for anyone.

Crafty marketers haven’t quite figured out how to commercialize it yet. In that regard, it’s still a haven for free will. There’s no obligation to go out and buy anything for anyone. When you give a gift, it’s because you want to; not because you have to.

Though with Black Friday on its heels, the Christmas push for usually starts that evening, which I could do without.

But that’s just how it goes…

Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy giving gifts.

I do enjoy spreading joy.

This year, I’m on the hook for the wine. It’s gonna be good stuff.

So, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I want to offer you a gift.

A Thanksgiving Gift of Unbounded Wealth

It’s the gift of freedom, of living life on your own terms.

Next week marks the start of a short series on how to take control of your financial well-being. It’s all part of the strategy behind my upcoming book, Unbounded Wealth.

I’ve co-authored two other books.

My first one, What’s Behind the Numbers?, was published by McGraw-Hill. It was a big deal for me.

I was a slow reader when I was a kid. By third grade, I’d been placed in remedial English.

The world wasn’t very politically correct back then. Kids weren’t coddled. There were no awards for in last place. My parents were told, in so many words, that I wouldn’t amount to much.

Years later, I was published by a major company and What’s Behind the Numbers? went on to win awards like the Stock Trader’s Almanac Book of the Year for 2013.

It was praised in Barron’s.

My college recognized me as a distinguished alumnus.

Then a few years later, I co-wrote Rule of 72: How to Compound Your Money and Uncover Hidden Stock Profits, which soon become my second bestselling book.

Rule of 72 provided readers with an easy, six-step method to understanding which companies are actually willing to pay investors to own their stocks… and which ones will drag down your portfolio. You can grab a copy right here.

While it’s nice to earn honors for my work, a book like What’s Behind the Numbers? had one major problem.

The book is written in a highly technical way.

It does well with university graduates and financial professional. It’s used in schools, and firms have bought it for their clients. I’ve spoken at places like Google, major investor groups, and presented to insurance companies.

For someone like my dad who read it — or tried to — it’s a different story.

He told me he was very proud of me, that he got through 30 pages or so. But he didn’t understand a darn thing I said.

My mom felt the same way.

A Book for Any Level of Investor

The problem is that I wanted to write something that anyone could understand. I wanted to write a book that could truly help people get on the right path. A path to the financial life they wanted.

When my parents told me this, it made me want to write a book that anyone of any skill level could understand. I wanted to write a book that could help people get on the right path — a path to the financial life they want.

My book — Unbounded Wealth — is the culmination of that. It was written in a way that even a seventh-grader could understand it. It’s meant to be accessible so you can read it and start on your path to better financial well-being without missing a beat.

It should be wrapped up any day now.

The best part about it is that the book is free. All you’ll need to pay is a small shipping fee.

So, keep an eye out for updates from me about the book.

In the meantime, this upcoming series in The Rich Investor will get you well on your way.

These are the steps that took me from a mere dishwasher at 18 to financially independent in less than 10 years.

I live this stuff. Abide by these rules, and I think they can help you just as much as they helped me become what I’ve taken to calling a “Middle-Class Millionaire.”

When you see that in the title, you’ll know you’re in the right place.
