Special Report: How Your Budgeting Technique Affects Your Wealth

2019-07-17T01:03:52-04:00

In the book The Next Millionaires by Paul Pilzer, the idea is put forth that our financial success is not only based on what resources we have available to us but also what tools we use. The Next Millionaires is a great book on the new economics that will shape our current and future generations and it challenges many old economic principles. One of the great gems found inside is an equation that Paul discovered. W = P * T Wealth = Personal Resources * Technology This theory suggests that our wealth (as a society) is determined not only by [...]

MS Money Long Dead, But Still Searched For

2019-08-07T18:46:06-04:00

Other Better Tools Now Available It's funny how we get used to something and would just rather stick with it rather than change - even if the change is a much better option. Think about how so many people took a long time before even trying a bank ATM and still waited in line for the teller [...]
