Investor Revolution: Overthrow Wall Street and Take Back Your Future by Thomas L. Hardin

Investor Revolution! shows you how to take control of your finances and make your money work for you. Learn how to create a customized wealth management plan for your ideal future--a fulfilling and wealthy life. The status quo of investing through the Wall Street method (being sold investment products from large corporations) and merely using wealth to accumulate assets will not work for todays investor as he looks to a retirement that now often spans as long as many careers. Hardin shows readers how to create a vision of their ideal future (some starting a new career, traveling the world, or creating a non-profit), and realize it through a mix of wealth management coaching and proprietary wealth management techniques.
