I have told my daughter, who is 18 and about to start her first full time real job, that I will give her your books to get her and her boyfriend started NOW on super and budgeting, and get them set up with the great habits I always aspired to but never quite achieved. I was a student in 1988 and your book “Making Money Made Simple” was included in a finance subject that was part of the Home Economics Degree I was studying. I read it but didn’t finish the degree, and was not able to put much into action at the time apart from starting a super fund at 20. It has not had any contributions made to it for 14 years and it has survived the GFC so far, with the total still more than I ever contributed. I am about to start and fill it up – the magic of compounding interest!!
Once again thank you for the inspirational and effective financial advice that is free for all walks of life via the paper and your website. Now that our financial health is on the up and up I too am going to put your brilliance to work!
