Another advantage that the book has is that it is real short and easy to read; you can get through it in an afternoon if you want to breeze through the first time.

I need to find my copy of it. It got packed up somewhere during our move a few weeks ago...

First, thanks so much for highlighting such a great book. I've read it several times and while I'm still quite a ways from being able to implement the suggestions to the letter, I'm light years from where I was.

Secondly, I used to work for Primerica Financial Services and I quit after just a couple of years for one HUGE reason: I was fine selling life insurance because I believe whole-heartedly in term life insurance for most people and I've been experienced with it since before I was 12 years old.

BUT - and this is a HUGE but - I was being taught to sell people on the idea of trusting me and my magical computer program to "guarantee" their future. At the time, I had started with PFS because my finances were in such horrible shape and I wanted to fix it. So, I didn't know any more than the folks I was supposed to "help".

Since it was a total lack of integrity, I started getting sick to my stomach before every sales appointment, which was sold to the potential client as a chance to see what the company does to help people.

Admittedly, the company can make a big difference for many people, but I just didn't feel right trying to convince someone I could help them with their finances when I had raided the couch cushions for the gas money to get to the appointment.

Just my two-cents.
