Bank on Yourself: The Life-Changing Secret to Protecting Your Financial Future

by Pamela Yellen

Published by Vanguard Press

Read Excerpt

What Wall Street, Banks, and Finance Companies Desperately Don't Want You to Know
How to Have Financial Security and Grow Wealth Safely in Spite of the Financial Crisis

Are you happy with the state of your finances? Following conventional investing and financial planning strategies got you where you are, and many experts are concluding that these methods are fundamentally flawed. In this book, Pamela Yellen reveals an extraordinary, little-known but time-tested way to grow wealth safely and predictably, even when the stock and real estate markets and other investments tumble.

Bank On Yourself: The Life-Changing Secret to Growing and Protecting Your Financial Future reveals the secrets to taking back control of your financial future that Wall Street, banks, and credit card companies don't want you to know. You'll discover how to:
  • Have a rock-solid financial plan and a predictable retirement income that can last as long as you do -- with no luck, skill, or guesswork required
  • Turn your back on the stomach-churning twists and turns of the stock and real estate markets
  • Get back every penny you pay for your cars, vacations, home repairs, business equipment, a college education, and other major purchases, so you can enjoy more of life's luxuries today without robbing your nest egg! (The average family could increase their lifetime wealth by $500,000 to $1,000,000 or more using this method, without the risk or volatility of stocks and real estate)
  • Become your own source of financing and recapture the interest you pay to banks and finance companies -- reduce or eliminate the control those institutions have over you
