It was at Borders Books on Chicago’s State Street where women and men were lined up literally around the corner to get a glimpse at the Money-Making Maven, Suze Orman. Signing autographs, smiling at strangers and shaking every hand that reached out to her made a successful book signing on The Road to Wealth.
This book hit the New York Times Bestseller’s list within its first weeks release, making Suze Orman a bona fide financial superstar! Suze shared with me, “Out of all the books I’ve written, I’m lovin’ this baby more than any of them! 9 Steps to Financial Freedom hit number one on the New York Time Bestsellers list which was an absolute phenomenon in itself but everybody said, ‘that’s not so hard – anybody can do that if you’re on Oprah 11 times.’ Courage to Be Rich comes out and goes right to number one on the New York Times Bestsellers list and everybody says, ‘oh, that’s not that hard – you had an entire PBS special behind you. Road to Wealth comes out and one week after it comes out without any publicity whatsoever except for 4 minutes on the Today Show which is not enough to make a New York Times Bestseller; it hit the New York Times Bestsellers list within one week! What that says to me is that people are buying me now not being sold to me.”
Suze Orman has been called “a force in the world of personal finance” and a “one-woman financial advice powerhouse” by USA Today. A two-time Emmy Award-winning television host, New York Times mega bestselling author, magazine and online columnist, writer/producer, and one of the top motivational speakers in the world today, Orman is undeniably America’s most recognized expert on personal finance.

Like so many others personally touched by the disease, Jay was inspired to act when a dear friend was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 32. Like the subjects themselves, Jay's stark, bold portraits challenge traditional perceptions of the disease and capture the raw beauty, strength, and character of so many extraordinary young women.

SHOW NOTES: Our FINANCIAL FIERCENESS!™ series integrates our financial goals into our development plan for surpassing our goals. We deal with the specific issues we need to explore in order to achieve (and surpass) our financial goals. This episode is, “Suze Orman Is Right! You Can’t Afford It and Neither Can I!
Money I have - Money I Owe = Money I Can Use (save, spend, etc.)
Money I have = Money I have
Future money ≠ (does not equal) Money I have
Future money includes future paycheck, future appreciation, etc.
The default position we all should have is that we cannot afford it! We may not be able to afford the math part of the equation (not have sufficient income, savings, etc) or we may not be able to afford the emotional aspect of the equation (decreased happiness due to lack of anticipation). No matter how many financial resources we have, the anticipation of a treat (by denying, delaying and/ or limiting a purchase) will make us happier.
I deny myself items that I want all of the time!
1) We can’t afford it.
2) Plan ahead (save and/or research more) to create and enhance anticipation.
3) Purchase only when the math supports it (in regards to debt, savings, etc.).
4) Maintain the purchase.
5) Repair the purchase.
6) Last option is to replace the purchase.
Remember to use your “Money Days” to go through your bills and cut costs. A penny saved is a penny earned.
I saved over $120 per month on my mobile phone bill with show sponsor Ting (https://zjjbst19hp4.ting.com/)! I strongly recommend that you check and see if you will be able to realize savings on your mobile phone!
Actions Speak Louder Than Words!
It seems that the best advice can be learned not from listening to financial corporations and so-ca experts, but by watching what they DO.
Banks put billions of dollars into “BOLI” – bank-owned permanent life insurance - while advising their customers to put their money into savings accounts and CD’s earning next to nothing. In a recent video from the Palm Beach Letter, a finance insider confessed that many financial gurus and professionals havenone of their own dollars in the stock market.
In Suze Orman’s case, there is also a distinct gap between what she advises and the actions she takes – a gap is so wide that one blogger stated she must hate the financial advice she doles out through books and TV!
On today's show No BS Money Guy Todd Strobel and Special Guest Best Selling Financial Author Kim Butler discuss Real, Practical and Most Importantly Safe Strategies to optimize your finances.

In this episode of Safe Money Radio with Rick Liuag, Rick describes in detail how today's Fixed Indexed Annuities work, why the are a prudent choice for the portion of your retirement savings you cannot afford to lose for ANY reason, and why detractors mistakenly recommend against having annuities as a foundation for retirement savings plans.
