There's No Longer an Excuse - Teacher's Journey to Wealth

An Excerpt From Millionaire Teacher

If you were considering a profession and you wanted to become wealthy, certain lines of traditionally high-paying work might tempt you. Would it be law, medicine, business, or dentistry? Few, if any, would choose my profession if they aspired to be rich. I’m a high school English teacher—a middle-class professional if there ever was one. Yet I became a debt-free millionaire in my 30s.
I didn’t take exceptional risks with my money and I didn’t inherit a penny from anyone. When I went to college, I paid the entire bill myself. How did I pay for my own schooling and amass more than a million debt-free dollars before my fortieth birthday? Fortunately, I learned from (and was inspired by) some financially savvy characters, urging me to master what I should have learned in high school. Because financial literacy isn’t adequately taught in most high schools, you might be among the millions who were shortchanged by our education system. This book is my attempt to make it up to you.
Give this book to your financially challenged friends.
