Do you want to achieve life-long financial success? Do you want to be financially independent? Meaning, you are free to continue to work in a vocation you love, leave a job you hate, or transition from a higher paying job to work for a non-profit for less money. There is ONE thing you can do to make sure the answers to these questions are YES! Eric says he can't guarantee it or say its "fool proof," because there's always someone out there that will figure out how to make the simple... complicated, but with chapter titles like: "Interviewing the Boyfriend," "Emergency Blow!" and "Investing with my hair on fire," You will be able to laugh at some of his more unusual life stories, peer inside industry secrets, and gain valuable tools to help you implement the ONE thing. This non-traditional personal money management book reads like a conversation you are having with the author. Practical information will help you navigate investing, budgeting, insurance, college and retirement planning and estate issues, but the real value comes from insightful advice from an industry insider. Eric arms you with ideas on both saving money in each of these categories and how to interact with your spouse, children, and other loved ones in your life as you do so. The Appendix on "Top 10 Questions to ask a boy who wants to date your daughter," is worth the price of the book. In addition, Eric looks at traditional ideas about finance in unconventional ways. For instance, did you know that there is nowhere in the Bible or the U.S. Constitution that it says you have to pay for your child's college education? That probably comes as a shock to Millennials. Or, that asset allocation and diversification in your investing isn't all it's cracked up to be? Sure, these concepts make for colorful pie charts and legally protect the big brokerage firms if they are sued, but is there a better way? After you discover the One Thing, is there a way to make budgeting, a fun lifestyle versus an impossible time-wasting task? Eric even approaches the retirement concept in a different way, with insightful questions to discuss and dream with the primary person you will be spending it with. The bottom-line is that The One Thing can be a life-changing experience that puts you on the road to achieve financial success.

Author Biography

Eric Reinhold graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy with a degree in Economics. Following his sea duty, he attained his MBA at night while working as the Midshipmen Financial Advisor in Annapolis. After more than twenty years of experience as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER(TM) practitioner and advising thousands of individuals, he has simplified financial success down to ONE thing, with ten additional areas of interest to help you feel confident in your future. Eric brings a unique background to his writing, having worked as both a fee-only and fee and commission-based advisor. Over his career, Eric has been published frequently in national publications, monthly newsletters, and financial journals, but it wasn't until recently that he decided to capture his financial and life experiences into one book. In additional to his three children, Eric is blessed to experience life's trials and celebrations with his high school sweetheart, who finally wore down and married him after seven years.
