Are You Making the #1 Financial Mistake?

After ranking top 3 in GoBankingRates’s Favorite Financial Expert of 2011 Poll (by the way, thank you again to all that voted!) they asked me to answer the question: “What’s the number one mistake people make with their money?”

So, instead of just giving a plain, vanilla, written answer, I rolled up my sleeves and shot a video so I could show you what I believe is the #1 financial mistake out there and how you can avoid or fix it in less than an hour!  In this video I walk you through how you can set up a system that guarantees you won’t have spent all your money on other things before you get around to putting your hard-earned dollars where they are supposed to go—to ensuring a richer future.

If you follow the action steps in this video and use the diagram that I show you, you will truly have a foolproof, no brainer, “set it and forget it” financial plan that, I promise you, will work! The plan to avoid this #1 money mistake is based on my New York Times Bestseller, The Automatic Millionaire and is updated for 2012. So, as I said watch the video, follow the diagram, it’s easy and, YES YOU REALLY CAN DO IT – so GET STARTED!

Hope this video helps you all and remember to let me know how great you feel once you “MAKE IT AUTOMATIC” by commenting below or on my Facebook.
