The Starting Point
Your economic situation is a matter of choice not a matter of chance. In your everyday life, you may find it more and more difficult to delegate the time necessary to uncover information needed to plan a successful future. Many professionals subscribe to the theory that owning the proper products will produce the desired results that will create future success. Although products and investments are necessary, they are not the center point in planning your future. The products you purchase are not the source of your knowledge, they should be the result of your knowledge. Knowledge is some- thing you learn. Wisdom is the ability to apply knowledge to everyday life.
