Our financial lives are directly connected to our societal contributions, and we must be financially free in order to achieve our potential. Many, however, are kept from living their ideal lives because of misguided traditions in the world of personal finance. Garrett B. Gunderson challenges destructive myths, common cliches, and faulty retirement planning advice to plainly demonstrate the following: 401 (k)s and the stock market are extremely risky investments for most people. Learn how to create safer investments that are collateralized, cash-flowing, controllable, and aligned with your expertise, passion, and purpose. Conventional retirement planning strategies, techniques, and products may prevent you from fully enjoying retirement. You can maximize the productivity of your resources, reduce risk, and retire well with the right education and a proper macroeconomic plan. Net worth is a poor indicator of wealth and your ability to retire well. What matters is cash flow, and this book will teach you how to develop it. Debt may not be what you think it is. Learn the proper definition of debt and how this understanding can increase your prosperity. "High risk equals high returns" is dangerous dogma. Learn how to increase your returns and reduce your risk through smart, value-based investing.
Killing Sacred Cows is a must-read for mission-driven individuals who: want to learn the rules that the truly wealthy live by, question common financial assumptions and teaching, mistrust the follow-the-herd mentality, desire a purposeful, passionate, and prosperous life.
