Most workers will probably earn between one and two million dollars over their career spans. So why is it that some people will have practically nothing saved by the time they stop working? During this seminar, you will learn the top three money mistakes and how you can avoid them:
1) Why living above your means can result in poverty instead of wealth
2) Why ceding control over your money to your spouse can end in disaster
3) Why merely saving your money (rather than properly investing it) won't meet your financial goals
You will also learn tactics to leverage opportunities in the new lax tax as well as tips to minimize your tax bill.
