You Got This!

Your Million Dollar Path to Financial Freedom 
By Scott and Jill Carter

The last thing you need in a crisis is an armchair quarterback who tells you what you should have done. No, you need an encourager and a guide who will not only empathize with how you got there in the first place, but who also shows you the way out.

Scott and Jill Carter’s You Got This! (Morgan James, August 21, 2018) is exactly what the doctor ordered - eye level expert advice from people who’ve been there. They readily admit to their own missteps but credit those financial blunders for helping them figure out a better way forward. No matter your age or current financial status, what they share in this book will be welcome news. 

And, make no mistake. There is a crisis brewing. Fifty seven percent of Americans say they have less than a thousand dollars saved. More than a third have saved nothing. Half of American families live paycheck to paycheck, and, not surprisingly, more than half of us are “anxious or fearful” about our financial well-being. But there is good news: This crisis can be averted.  

The seeds for You Got This! were planted in Scott’s many talks he gives around the country about finances and how to control them. “I kept getting basic questions on retirement,” he says. I soon began to understand the crisis before us as a country and as individuals. Lots of people are whistling past the graveyard and don’t want to think about it.” 

Disrupting For Good by Chris Field

"You need to get started because you can improve your physical health at 75, but not your financial health."

Scott Carter

You Got This! will help you better understand the new financial world we are all operating in these days. Our parents and grandparents went to work somewhere when they were young and simply stayed there, retiring with full benefits and plenty to get them through their golden years. Not so for us today. When it comes to our financial future here in the gig economy we are all independent contractors. For us to be successful, we need to understand the lay of the land, where the pitfalls are, and how to get started.

Scott and Jill recommend beginning with the end in mind. Determine what you’ll need to have your ideal retirement and then work backward to formulate your plan. They suggest that you keep it simple while being very SMART. They’ll show readers how to:
•    Be Specific
•    Make it Measurable
•    Make it Actionable
•    Keep it Relevant
•    Keep it Timely

You’ll walk away with everything you need to start taking the financial pressure off now while still building wealth for your future.
