The new book by David Bach! Famous for The Automatic Millionaire – one of my top 3 favorite books ever :) Start Over, Finish Rich drops today, but if you’re one of the 3 lucky winners here you get your very own copy for free!
I haven’t had the chance to finish the one I was sent myself, but so far it’s very Bach-like! haha…which is def. a good thing. Since I can’t put my own special review on it, here’s a clip from the press release to give you a better taste:
Drawing upon tried-and-true principles of wealth building, Bach spells out the ten most crucial steps for putting a financially secure future squarely back in reach, including how to get out of debt, repair credit, rebuild savings, revitalize retirement plans, rebuild with real estate, and reorganize one’s financial life for the high tech age.
The first step to getting back on track financially is to stay positive and recommit to wealth. “Don’t stop saving, don’t stop investing, and don’t give into fear and despair,” urges Bach. “There are as many, if not more, opportunities to build wealth during recessions and the recoveries that follow them as there are during boom times. But you won’t get anywhere if you are too scared-or feel too defeated-to do anything. You have to have a plan based on action! Doing nothing is the worst choice you can make. You have to hit the reset button and START OVER.”
Among the key steps to starting over in 2010 are the following:
- Find Your Money
- Deal with Your Credit Card Debt
- Fix and Protect Your Credit Score
- Rebuild Your Emergency Savings
- Re-energize Your Retirement Plan
- Make it Automatic (link to one of my posts, not part of book)
- Rebuild with Real Estate

Bonus tip: Find a good "balance transfer" offer to help pay off debt faster!
If you’ve been making payment after payment (on time) and still haven't been able to get your debt under control, snatching up a good balance transfer credit card offer may be the ticket to try. That’s where in order to gain your business - credit card companies will let you transfer your existing debt to a new card and let you pay ZERO PERCENT interest on it. Saving you tons every month!
What's the catch? Usually balance transfer cards charge a fee (around 3% of your debt balance) to let you transfer your balance to their 0% interest offer. But we've found a great credit card that will let you do a balance transfer absolutely free. Click here to learn more and see if you qualify!
PS: If you don't trust yourself with another credit card, ignore this! This strategy is to help you get out of debt quicker, not risk adding more to it.
