Review from New York Times Bestselling Author: "Nowadays, just about everyone is feeling their pennies pinching. Costs are up, salaries are down, and inflation is rearing its ugly head. People are living longer, which means retirement costs are escalating too. Feeling worried? Don’t be, because the effervescent Marian Snow, in her groundbreaking book, Stop Sitting On Your Assets , has set down a number of easy-to-implement solutions to take you from cash crunch to real riches. A scientist, financial analyst, and underwriter for a Chicago mortgage banking firm, Snow uses her 15 years of experience with wealthy clients to reveal frank insider secrets that can pave your road with gold and transform you into a millionaire. And, she argues, it can be done without budgeting or effort.
Snow reveals a radical system that often seems to run contrary to what everyone else, including most financial advisors, believes to be true about money. Forget paying off your mortgage, Snow advises. Instead, pay off some of it, and use the rest of the money to invest in a safe side fund. Stop thinking that the most important thing is having equity in your house (which earns a zero rate of return, by the way), and learn why you can save more money by having a mortgage than by trying to pay it all off. Furthermore, Snow says to never follow the usual advice about flipping real estate or trading in the futures market or even skipping that expensive morning cappuccino.
Snow’s advice is honest, informative, and downright revolutionary. So forget the money managers, whose costs and fees actually hurt investors, and instead grab a firm hold on Snow’s timely book. Indeed, Stop Sitting On Your Assets is every bit as good as money in your bank."
