How Millionaires Stay Rich Forever: Retirement Planning Secrets of Millionaires and How They Can Work for You
Houston, TX (PRWEB) January 31, 2005
With US consumer debt surpassing a staggering $1.7 trillion, America is gearing up for another expensive Valentines Day. Jim Trippon CPA, one of America's foremost authorities on the money habits of self made millionaires, says the "well intentioned gifts of Valentine's Day often produce money arguments the rest of the year." Trippon, who runs the website stayrichforever.com, says many lovers who go overboard on Valentines gifts will end up "drowning in debt". Trippon shows you smart and practical ways of how to express your love this year.
Trippon suggests that you can really demonstrate how much you love someone by doing the things that will help you avoid arguments and disagreements over money and finances. Express your love by not incurring any new debt this year and showing your love in more creative ways.
Trippon says people stay in love when they get educated and start acting intelligently about money together. "Get real and deal with your budget. Be honest with each other about your habits and come up with a plan for how you will spend your money as a couple." According to Trippon, the best personal finance gifts are:
- Building a future together. Save money off the top by funding your 401ks and investment accounts monthly payroll or bank account automatic withdrawals. Then watch your intimacy, and investments, grow.
- Paying off credit card debt. Surprise her with a zero balance every month from now on.
- Building a cash reserve. Maintain at least three months living expenses in cash so that when an unexpected expense hits you, it can be an opportunity for overcoming the situation as a loving team, and not fighting about where you will get the money to deal with the issue.
Trippon says, "By removing money as a source of disagreements and arguments you will have a more intimate and loving relationship - not just on Valentine's Day but all year long."
Trippon recently completed an extensive three year study of 537 millionaire retirees. He has documented his findings in his new bestselling book, "How Millionaires Stay Rich Forever: Retirement Planning Secrets of Millionaires and How They Can Work for You".
