I wouldn't call myself a fan of Tony Robbins but I appreciate his work, knowledge, spirit and incredible business sense. I was looking forward to this book since Gary Vaynerchuk had him on his daily YouTube show and openly endorsed it.

I should not be able to summarize an entire book on money management in one sentence. but it's possible here. .

Invest early (let compounding interest work for you), diversify across asset classes and industries (use index funds for vast majority of your investments), don't let the market corrections and bear market shake your confidence in your investments, in fact, invest more during these times as everything bounces back.

there. I just saved you hours of time, money or a credit. Don't believe me? Listen. but I did warn you.
