About the author:
Eli Inkrot dedicated the first few years of his fulfilling two endeavors: learning to walk and figuring out what other people were clamoring on about. Due to this initial lack of focus towards the business world, Inkrot was unable to commence his first business venture before the age of five. He attended Buckeye Valley Elementary, Middle and High School but he was subsequently kicked out of all three because of age, exemplary grades and good behavior. Frantic to "do something with his life" whilst escaping the wrath of "the real world" Inkrot chose to attend Otterbein University located in Westerville, Ohio. Three and a half years later he graduated "magna cum laude" with departmental honors in Economics and Business Administration. Fighting boredom one day, Inkrot started writing finance articles and published 80 "works" by the time this outdated bio was written. Inevitably, the University of Tampa offered to pay Inkrot to attend school if he would be kind enough to be present at their John Sykes College of Business. Reluctantly drawn by the weather and his unassuming love for palm trees, Inkrot obtained a Master's in Finance a year and a half later - graduating as the "most outstanding graduate student" with "highest honors" and a perfect GPA. Taking a questionably deserved ninety hour vacation after graduation, Inkrot is now working as an investment analyst.
Yet none of that means you should listen to him or read his book. He's not your dad and he's certainly not your mom. You can do whatever you want. But be forewarned, by simply picking up this book or reading this far, you are now responsible for this advice: "You don't have a money problem because wherever your money goes, there you are." (Personally, and this is just the voice inside of your head speaking, I would want to know something about what I'm supposed to be accountable for. But that's just me.)
You Don't Have A Money Problem
Wherever Your Money Goes, There You Are
Eli A. Inkrot
I'll let you in on a little secret: You don't have a money problem. Whether we're talking about debt, emergency funds, making more than you spend, investing or simply delaying a purchase today for a more comfortable tomorrow - that's not the issue. Every one of us has the opportunity to overcome these "obstacles" and more. Yet we choose not to achieve financial satisfaction. Said differently, woe is not you.
It is true that additional money might temporarily alleviate your financial strain, but by no means will it create a lasting solution. This book - taken as a step-by-step guide on how to think about common financial situations - looks to emphasize four important areas. Perhaps instead of a "money problem" you have an "awareness problem" in which case the aptly named first step "Gaining Awareness" would apply. Maybe you have an "information problem" whereby the second step "Building Your Financial Foundation" will surely provide assistance. Imaginably you have a "motivation problem," but don't get discouraged we will soon boost your confidence in the third step of "Investing." Finally, it is conceivable that even if you have conquered the lingering financial problems of "awareness, information and motivation" it is still likely that you have a "thinking problem." In the concluding step "Realize You Are Holding You Back" we will dispel this imaginary impediment.
I can assure you that the work you put into this endeavor will be both fundamental and worthwhile. Let's begin.
