Description

** Reviewed and updated for the 2020-2021 financial year**

This is the only money guide you'll ever need

That's a bold claim, given there are already thousands of finance books on the shelves.

So what makes this one different?

Well, you won't be overwhelmed with a bunch of 'tips' ... or a strict budget (that you won't follow).

You'll get a step-by-step formula: open this account, then do this; call this person, and say this; invest money here, and not there. All with a glass of wine in your hand.

This book will show you how to create an entire financial plan that is so simple you can sketch it on the back of a serviette ... and you'll be able to manage your money in 10 minutes a week.

You'll also get the skinny on:

Saving up a six-figure house deposit in 20 months

Doubling your income using the 'Trapeze Strategy'

Saving $78,173 on your mortgage and wiping out 7 years of payments

Finding a financial advisor who won't rip you off

Handing your kids (or grandkids) a $140,000 cheque on their 21st birthday

Why you don't need $1 million to retire ... with the 'Donald Bradman Retirement Strategy'

Sound too good to be true? It's not.

This book is full of stories from everyday Aussies - single people, young families, empty nesters, retirees - who have applied the simple steps in this book and achieved amazing, life-changing results.

And you're next.
