While watching yesterday’s Time Square New Year celebration, a Facebook survey revealed the top 10 New Year’s resolutions.
Number 2 was no surprise—losing weight.
But the number 1 resolution surprised me: saving more money.
My publisher at John Wiley & Sons claims that January is a big month for personal finance books, as many people start their “New Year, New Me” personal campaigns to strengthen their finances. With the recent economic crisis and the recession, it does appear (if the Facebook survey is an indication) that people are hungrier than ever to get their financial ducks in line.
I tried to hit an American audience, and I’ll be outlining some of my book’s finance tips on CNN Television’s Your Bottom Line, with Christine Romans, next Saturday.
And the book reached a Canadian audience as well, which you can sample on Calgary Today’s QR77 Radio, where I’ll be speaking at 2:30pm Pacific Time on January 2, 2012.
Although my book’s timeless investment lessons are the same regardless of the country you live in, I wanted to specify exactly how Americans, Canadians, Australians or Singaporeans could utilize these lessons with brokerages they could use.
Perhaps no other Personal Finance book on the market has done that.
Millionaire Teacher is the only Top 10 investment book transcending Amazon’s charts in Canada and the United States.
I’ve had huge support as well.
The latest comes from Tradestreaming’s Zack Miller who named Millionaire Teacher the Best Personal Finance book of 2011.
And of course, Scott Burns continues to sing my book’s praises. Here’s the legendary finance writer’s review in the Seattle Times, for January 2, 2012.
Everyone who reads this book, I believe, can become a Millionaire “Teacher” if they pass on what they learn. The title, of course, is a double entendre.
We can all help others reach their financial resolutions for 2012.
Have a great year everyone!
