Iwas once asked to give advice to a reader of Self magazine who I will
call Mia. Mia is in her mid-20s, working for a social service agency in
a major city, earning $42,000 a year. Her ultimate financial goal is to be
a millionaire. “I want to live the way I want to live and never worry
about making ends meet,” she says. Mia isn’t thrilled with her job; she
hopes to quit and start a public relations firm.
It was a really hot summer’s day many years ago. I was on my
way to pick up two items at the grocery store. In those days, I was a
frequent visitor to the supermarket because there never seemed to be
enough money for a whole week’s food-shopping at once.
You see, my young wife, after a tragic battle with cancer, had
died just a few months earlier. There was no insurance -- just many
expenses and a mountain of bills.

Two years ago I attended a marketing seminar in Dallas, Texas. It was "Affiliate Incubator" put on by Stu McClaren & Russell Brunson. When you attend these seminars, you walk away with a deeper understanding of what behaviors cause a person to succeed in internet marketing and those which cause a person to fail. There's a huge gap. It's not a gap that can't be bridged... if you know how. And I want to help you avoid some of the traps that I have identified which stop people from making money on the internet.

'Harriet Smith has no family and no money. Robert Martin was a good match for

filled her head with ideas of high society and of how beautiful she is.'
Emma Woodhouse is beautiful, clever and rich. She has never thought of
getting married herself. Instead, she amuses herself by trying to arrange marriages
between her friends and neighbours. But Emma makes a lot of mistakes and causes
more problems than happy marriages.

Life-cycle finance is arguably the most important specialty in finance. At some level,
all institutions exist to serve the individual. But investing directly by individuals,
who reap the rewards of their successes and suffer the consequences of their
mistakes, is becoming a dramatically larger feature of the investment landscape.
In the current crisis, the Keynesian response of stimulating aggregate demand through
easy money and loose fiscal policy is correct to a point. But flooding the system with excess
liquidity that drives short-term interest rates to near zero has been a serious mistake. By the end
of 2008, the interest rates on federal funds and short-term Treasury Bills were virtually zero—
where they remain today (figure 1). In this liquidity trap, the interbank market remains almost
paralyzed so that further Fed injections of liquidity simply led to a buildup of excess reserves in
The answer depends on when you will need the money,
your goals, and if you will be able to sleep at night if you pur-
chase a risky investment where you could lose your principal.
For instance, if you are saving for retirement, and you have
35 years before you retire, you may want to consider riskier
investment products, knowing that if you stick to only the “sav-
ings” products or to less risky investment products, your money
will grow too slowly—or, given inflation and taxes, you may
lose the purchasing power of your money. A frequent mistake
people make is putting...
