    A New Look at Practical Principles for Taking Control of Your Money

    “Dollars & Uncommon Sense: Basic Training for Your Money” is written the goal of helping the reader think and do differently in relation to handling their money, enabling them to “grow in their wealth.” Steve Repak begins by introducing the reader to six key traits of wealth builders. He goes on to present practical principles, priorities, and plans for building a personal financial foundation that leads to financial freedom and wealth building. Steve candidly shares his own personal experiences of “digging his way out of debt.” This straightforward approach helps identify him with his reader as a fellow traveler while inspiring them to retrain their thinking patterns. I found the listing of “useful websites” an excellent resource for keeping briefed on the current status and trends in areas specifically pertinent to my financial planning and strategy. Another helpful feature Steve provides are the easy to understand and implement worksheets for tracking, summarizing and planning your personal spending. Repak’s writing is informative, practical, and empowering. I found the sidebars, charts, graphs, and illustrations helpful for clarification and reinforcing visually the material in text adding an additional dimension to understanding and retention of the important principles being introduced. Each chapter ends with a series of “Take Home” pointers. The helpful keys aid in application and assimilation of the chapter contents. Steve Repak’s credentials and successful career as a Certified Financial Planner (CFP), consultant, and motivational speaker, qualify him to author this potentially life changing book, “Dollars & Uncommon Sense: Basic Training for Your Money.” Highly recommended. A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own. As Reviewed for Midwest Book Review.

    If you don't trust this mother of 3 military offspring to opine
    "better than Dave Ramsey"
    Then may I suggest you listen to "Andrew Wilkow" of the Wilkow Majority radio show (sirius and facebook)
    God Blessed America: See "SOLDIER"
    Nice to know someone is looking out for this fine selection of
    society.
    Thank you Steve Repak
    I'm ordering a bunch to send overseas and to give as gifts to local military.
