With even a modest income, if you start strategizing and saving for your future, the financial possibilities are nearly endless! Patrick Weinert explains the many strategies you can use to pay off your debt, save money, and plan for retirement. His guide, The Money Mission, is the result of years of experience in both personal and organizational money management. Weinert has advised the chief financial officer of the US Marine Corps on financial planning, and he brings the same rigorous skill to helping you plan out your personal financial future. The Money Mission begins by addressing debt, the main financial burden that afflicts so many Americans. Weinert offers simple and easy ways to begin reducing your debt. He examines and explains the most common obstacles blocking the way to a debt-free life and shows you exactly how to overcome them. He also explains how to create a starter savings fund and a six-month savings account reserve. After laying out the plan for a strong financial foundation, The Money Mission addresses saving for retirement, interest rates, banking, the Federal Reserve, investments, and more. With specific, accessible examples and simple terminology, Weinert makes financial management easier than ever.
