"No, it won't happen overnight. But by using Spitz's easy-to-follow directions, you can build a financial foundation that will grow and prosper until you reach your long-term financial goals." "In Get Rich Slowly, Spitz takes the time to explain the usual questions (and unforeseen traps) when it comes to building a financial nest-egg. Start first by mapping your financial objectives, figure out how much risk you want to take, and then go to work. Or rather, watch your money go to work for you. Spitz explains all the various kinds of investment opportunities, including stocks, bonds, money market funds, real estate, and more. Along the way, Spitz also shows you: how to get the most out of your investments, including IRAs, Keoghs, 401(k) plans, and other related savings plans; how to save for your children's college education; how to choose the best mutual funds; and how to secure enough cash for your retirement years." "Whether you're in your twenties and just starting out in your career, or in your later years when retirement is just around the corner, you'll find all the answers in Get Rich Slowly. All you need is a little fiscal prudence, some common sense, a dose of patience, and Spitz's expert guidance, and you're on your way to financial independence."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
