Overview

“The Elephant in the Room Workbook is a fun, fast-paced exercise into personal finance, improvement and ultimately, success! Rather than a workbook on formulating budgets, investment returns or portfolio strategies, each week the participant discovers several easy to understand foundational financial principles. By examining the eight areas that affect each us the most when it comes to our own money matters: behavior, attitudes, knowledge, financial beliefs, values, goals, patience, discipline and planning, we can be better prepared for and achieve, the life we were created for and commanded to live; the life we have always wanted to lead.

Each of the eight studies is filled with creative, thought-provoking exercises that stretch the mind and lead to a better understanding of how we can better maximize the financial resources we have been given. Filled with scripture and pithy quotes and referencing a small library of other resources, we guarantee that the reader will actually enjoy the process pertaining to the one subject that seems to entangle and confound so many of us-money!

The Elephant in the Room Workbook is an absolutely doable individual project but is also completely conducive to a group study. In addition, inherent within the format is a leader's guide without having to create a separate Leader's Guide. All that one has to do is to be willing to guide the group through the exercises, get the individuals in the group to share their thoughts and answers and encourage each member to do their weekly "homework" assignments and show up the following week ready to do the same.

Special features include on-the-spot quizzes into the readers money related preferences and tendencies, suggested weekly exercises, scripture readings, insights from Dave Ramsey, Max Lucado, Billy Graham, Rick Warren and others and quips and quotes from the likes of Ben Franklin, William Shakespeare, Sophocles and more. All of this leads up to a “Lifetime Achievement Goals” section in the back and a “Personal Contract” which the participants will sign with themselves upon completion of the workbook.

The ultimate goal of The Elephant in the Room Workbook is to challenge the user in interesting ways, ways that will change their thought process, their lives and the world around them forever. We feel confident that if the reader will truly roll up their sleeves and participate honestly, whole heartedly, in this workbook that this goal will be reached. And, at 96 pages and $9.95, we think it is a very affordable compliment to The Elephant in the Room book and therefore, accessible to the millions who do need its message.”
