This bestselling book is the third by award winning syndicated columnist and Huffington Post Contributor Don McNay, Wealth Without Wall Street is an easy to read book loaded with common sense advice.
Its call to action can be summed up in five steps:
1. Tear up your credit cards. Eliminate debt. Stay away from the "legalized loan sharks" such as payday lenders.
2. See if you have what it takes to be self-employed.
3. Get rich slowly. Think about money long term instead of week to week.
4. Move your money from a "too big to fail" Wall Street bank to a Main Street bank or credit union in your community.
5. "Think globally, act locally" is what Wealth Without Wall Street is all about.
By the end of the book, you'll have a road map for doing both.
