This is your last chance to comment to win our review copy of So far only 5 people have entered so wow – this is an easy one to win! “The Wealth Cure” is by New York Times best selling author and CSI: NY actor Hill Harper, who shares personal anecdotes on the real meaning of being wealthy. He writes about money as if it were someone’s health in need of treatment plan:
Our society is addicted to debt, and, exacerbating that problem, we live in a culture that associates material objects “” “bling” “” with success. Those two factors have led us to overvalue money. So much so that in many ways we “chase paper” just as intently as substance addicts chase their next fix. Our relationship with money borders upon addiction, and so many of the problems we see today, individually and collectively, are the result of this craving. We make irrational and often destructive choices because we have given money and its pursuit too much value.
This 264-page book is divided into four wealth cure stages that consist of a diagnosis of your monetary health, treatment for whatever may be hurting your wealth, compliance to stick to your plan, and maintaining your health and wealth to thrive. When his father died, Harper sought comfort in an expensive vintage car, a passion his father shared. Harper takes the reader on a journey of reflection filled with advice from family, friends, and the Bible.
This book is not for those looking for a quick fix. It’s for those who desire to take the right steps to true wealth with the help of money. Inside, you’ll find charts to start a financial plan, tips on investing on life insurance, having a will and an emergency fund, as well as steps to get out of credit card debt.
