Gary Halbert once told me he could have retired for the rest of his life from his first successful sales letter (the famous Coat of Arms letter) if he would have known this secret I’m about to reveal.
Even after making over $20,000 a DAY with that sales letter (back in the early 70’s when $20k/day was REALLY a lot of money)… Gary still wound up broke.
I remember asking him, “How in the world could you make millions and not have anything to show for it?”
His reply shocked me.
But I’m not going to share that until my Halbert book comes out. (Ain’t I a stinker!)
But here’s something I will share…
Back when I first started working with Halbert, I wasn’t making a whole lot of money. I honestly couldn’t understand how someone could make millions and still be broke.
NOW I understand.
If you don’t consciously keep a handle on it…
Your Expenses Always Rise
To Match Your Income…
My grandpa was a really sharp guy. He was a mechanical engineer who made a decent salary… never made a lot of money… but was really careful about watching his expenses and saving money.
When I was a teenager he showed me his old savings account book from the 1930’s, showing deposits of 2 cents, 5 cents… or when he had a really good month…10 cents.
He was trying to teach me something really important. I didn’t get it then… but I get it now.
My grandpa always lived under his means, paid cash for everything and always saved a good percentage of his income. And he did quite well financially with that formula.
I, on the other hand, had to learn this lesson the hard way.
You can be broke on $2,000 a month… and you can be broke on $100,000 a month.
I would really like you to NOT have to learn this lesson the hard way… hence this video.
I almost didn’t post it because the lighting isn’t good… but the message is so important to your financial future I figured you’d overlook the bad lighting.
Please… PLEASE give me your undivided attention for the next couple minutes.
I promise it will make you a fortune.
