MASTERING MONEY CAN SEEM IMPOSSIBLE IN A SOCIETY FOCUSED ON SHORT-TERM IMPULSES: LIVE FOR TODAY. FORGET ABOUT TOMORROW. OWNING THE DASH TURNS THAT MINDSET UPSIDE DOWN.
The phrase “Owning the Dash” was adopted by fitness guru, model, motivational speaker, and Anthony Delauney’s late cousin, Greg Plitt. A force of nature in and out of the gym, Greg pushed his clients—and himself—to take advantage of every moment and opportunity, making smart decisions now to ensure a healthy future. The more Anthony, a Certified Financial PlannerTM practitioner, became familiarized with Greg’s philosophies, the more he realized that they applied just as much to his field of expertise: personal and family finance.
In comes Owning the Dash, a clear, concise, and accessible guide to finance that makes planning for your future easy and pain-free. Learn how to manage cash flow, knock out debt, minimize taxes, financially protect loved ones, invest with confidence, and save for both education and retirement.
Leaving a lasting legacy is important. Let Owning the Dash help you establish yours.
