Have you ever wondered why some people have SO much money, and why others have so little? What makes the super-rich any different from you? For anyone who has ever wondered what the difference is between the haves and the have-nots, you may have just found your answer. Regardless of how much money you have or dont have, the journey to financial success begins with understanding and accepting how you think about money, how you feel about money, and what you know about money. Once you achieve a realistic assessment of where you are financially, there are specific steps and proven strategies that can propel you toward accomplishing positive financial goals and securing financial freedom. Dollars + Change = Sense is the equation for financial success. This subtitle is based on the idea that it makes sense to change your old financial habits if you arent in a desirable financial position or if youd like to improve your current financial situation and maximize opportunities to increase wealth. The Dollars represent your current assets and liabilities, financial strengths and weaknesses, and other tools and resources that can be used to implement a good financial plan. Change represents your attitude and willingness to learn new information and apply new methods of financial management taught or demonstrated by professionals in the financial arena. Sense implies a reliable ability to judge and make good decisions as a result of training, maturity, and experience. Prepare to abandon old habits and adopt a new way of thinking about money. It is time to take control of your finances and embrace savvy new ways to spend, save, and invest in your financial future. If you browse the shelves at any library or bookstore, you will see there are many books written on finance. Some are written from a Christian perspective, some deal with feelings about spending and emotional attachments to money, others deal primarily with financial terminology and the technical aspects of money management. Many purport to be how to books that teach the reader tricks of the trade and how to get rich quick. But this book is designed to help readers identify real problems in their own finances and to provide real solutions that work. Throughout the entire book, you will be given guidelines for completing a basic financial assessment, understanding key financial terms, identifying a reputable financial planner, working with licensed professionals and counselors, developing and following a financial plan, achieving long-term investment, retirement and estate planning goals, and discovering Gods ultimate financial plan for your life. It may be useful to highlight specific terms or concepts, take notes in the margins, and re-read certain sections to make sure you not only read the information, but comprehend it as well. Realize that undergoing a financial transformation not only takes skill, but it also takes time. Making a commitment to understand, adjust, and improve your financial habits is one of the most important investments you will ever make, and it is guaranteed to offer a good return. The Financial Shepherd will help lead you up the path of financial recovery or down the road toward financial independence.

#1 New York Times Bestseller

“Significant...The book is both instructive and surprisingly moving.” —The New York Times

Ray Dalio, one of the world’s most successful investors and entrepreneurs, shares the unconventional principles that he’s developed, refined, and used over the past forty years to create unique results in both life and business—and which any person or organization can adopt to help achieve their goals.

In 1975, Ray Dalio founded an investment firm, Bridgewater Associates, out of his two-bedroom apartment in New York City. Forty years later, Bridgewater has made more money for its clients than any other hedge fund in history and grown into the fifth most important private company in the United States, according to Fortune magazine. Dalio himself has been named to Time magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Along the way, Dalio discovered a set of unique principles that have led to Bridgewater’s exceptionally effective culture, which he describes as “an idea meritocracy that strives to achieve meaningful work and meaningful relationships through radical transparency.” It is these principles, and not anything special about Dalio—who grew up an ordinary kid in a middle-class Long Island neighborhood—that he believes are the reason behind his success.

In Principles, Dalio shares what he’s learned over the course of his remarkable career. He argues that life, management, economics, and investing can all be systemized into rules and understood like machines. The book’s hundreds of practical lessons, which are built around his cornerstones of “radical truth” and “radical transparency,” include Dalio laying out the most effective ways for individuals and organizations to make decisions, approach challenges, and build strong teams. He also describes the innovative tools the firm uses to bring an idea meritocracy to life, such as creating “baseball cards” for all employees that distill their strengths and weaknesses, and employing computerized decision-making systems to make believability-weighted decisions. While the book brims with novel ideas for organizations and institutions, Principles also offers a clear, straightforward approach to decision-making that Dalio believes anyone can apply, no matter what they’re seeking to achieve.

Here, from a man who has been called both “the Steve Jobs of investing” and “the philosopher king of the financial universe” (CIO magazine), is a rare opportunity to gain proven advice unlike anything you’ll find in the conventional business press.
In his first book in two decades, Anthony Robbins turns to the topic that vexes us all: How to secure financial freedom for ourselves and for our families. “If there were a Pulitzer Prize for investment books, this one would win, hands down” (Forbes.com).

Tony Robbins is one of the most revered writers and thinkers of our time. People from all over the world—from the disadvantaged to the well-heeled, from twenty-somethings to retirees—credit him for giving them the inspiration and the tools for transforming their lives. From diet and fitness, to business and leadership, to relationships and self-respect, Tony Robbins’s books have changed people in profound and lasting ways. Now, for the first time, he has assembled an invaluable “distillation of just about every good personal finance idea of the last forty years” (The New York Times).

Based on extensive research and interviews with some of the most legendary investors at work today (John Bogle, Warren Buffett, Paul Tudor Jones, Ray Dalio, Carl Icahn, and many others), Tony Robbins has created a 7-step blueprint for securing financial freedom. With advice about taking control of your financial decisions, to setting up a savings and investing plan, to destroying myths about what it takes to save and invest, to setting up a “lifetime income plan,” the book brims with advice and practices for making the financial game not only winnable—but providing financial freedom for the rest of your life. “Put MONEY on your short list of new books to read…It’s that good” (Marketwatch.com).
