Goodbye Money - 1,000 Ways to Waste It, or Not by Garrett Jay

BRAND NEW! (304 pgs. printed version)

As a Money Coach for the New Economy, Garrett Jay has created a sarcastic, yet comprehensive personal finance guide that’s practical, timely, and easy to read. You can now seriously increase your financial literacy without much effort.

Everyday money decisions can be mysterious, intimidating, and stressful. From cradle to grave, this guide sheds light on literally over 1,000 ways that money slips out of your pocket, often without you noticing. It's way more than clipping coupons and turning off the lights when you leave a room. The majority of the money wasting ways found in Goodbye Money can each cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars. Avoiding just a few of them can really fill your wallet with extra cash by learning about money mistakes before you make them.

Here's a small sample of what's inside:
--Renting versus buying a home. Rent isn't always a waste of money.
--Should you lease or buy a car? If you decide to buy, do you grab the 0% interest financing or take the $2,500 rebate?
--Starting a business? How many customers do you need to be profitable?
--43 money wasters that new and seasoned landlords should not overlook.
--The money math behind how foreign currency can affect travel costs as well as investing.

This guide is great for college students, grown-ups and those who aren't ready to grow up! It will help you become more aware of your money and will provide you with easy-to-use analytical tools so you can make your own financial decisions. You’ll feel empowered and no longer need to rely on people who might be inexperienced or biased because they’re motivated by commissions. Most importantly, once you develop good money habits, they become easier to maintain.

Real life financial solutions are provided without the fluff. There’s a lot of financial information and advice out there, but most of it is either high level or purely motivational. Goodbye Money gets down to business and makes even complicated financial concepts easy to understand and remember.

Yes, you can create a financially successful life. Financial literacy doesn't have to be painful or boring. Start by trying this offbeat, yet valuable money help today. It’s not as hard as you think.

About the Author - From Tadpoles to Teaching Money

Garrett Jay’s financial experience began when he was nine years old and decided to capture, raise, and sell tadpoles to his friends. His early entrepreneurial ventures didn’t stop there. From seal coating paved driveways, to deejaying parties, to selling pumpkins from his NYU dorm room for Halloween, he envisioned opportunities and seized them.

Garrett Jay learned the value of money at an early age. His parents didn’t force this education upon him, but encouraged him to earn and spend his own money. At 13, he decided to invest in precious metals. At 16, he started his first “full-time” business, and bought his first income-producing real estate at 21.

He graduated cum laude from NYU’s Stern School of Business with a B.S. in Finance and International Business. A few years later, he earned an M.B.A. from the Anderson School of Management at UCLA. Merit scholarships, personal earnings, and savings paid for most of his tuition and living expenses.

Garrett Jay held leadership roles in finance, management, sales, and marketing at multinational corporations in the financial services, printing, and technology consulting industries. He also held critical positions at smaller, entrepreneurial apparel, food service, and software development businesses.

As a Money Coach and founder of Money Lessons for Life, Garrett Jay passionately makes learning about money interesting and easy-to-understand for students and adults. He believes that being aware of your money, along with saving early and often, are keys to achieving financial independence.

Garrett Jay was born in New York City and currently resides in Palm Beach County, Florida where he has not retired early (yet).

I keep finding more and more interesting and helpful information. There's so much in here I never really thought about until now. But, some sections are painful to read because they hit close to home - makes me realize how much money I've wasted in the past.

I am about to buy a car and even though I've been buying cars for over twenty years, and consider myself a sophisticated shopper, the purchase of a car has always intimidated me. This book has empowered me with a wealth of information about such things as extended warranties, hidden costs and the math tools to figure it all out. It covers many more very helpful topics and I keep referring back to different sections to see what I can use on a daily basis.
