Meet Wally Street. The Reason You're Stupid.

There comes a time when you are writing a book that you have to say that's it. I think I have reached that point. As an author, I don't know if you are ever really satisfied that you have written everything that you wanted to write about. In my case, I think 417 pages is enough. There are a lot of white pages in it and the paragraphs are spaced out to make it easy to read. Further, all chapters start on the right side as I was told that this is a best practice for authors. So, if I had to squeeze it down by eliminating the white space, then it would probably be only about 300 pages.

The reason that I wrote this book, aptly titled, Meet Wally Street. The Reason You're Stupid, is because, well, I think people are stupid to do business with banks, insurance companies and Wall Street firms. You would not believe how often I see the same investments being sold to everyone who deals with these firms. It has gotten to the point that I can almost close my eyes and guess what is in their account based on what firm they are doing business with. You see, these firms that employ our dear friend Wally Street are in business to generate revenue. Unfortunately, they want it from you.

These firms sell the same products. Why? Because that is where the money is my friend.

Most people think they are way too smart to be fooled by the likes of a Wally Street. However, after reading this book, they will realize that they were way too confident. I realize trying to convince people that they are making a huge mistake doing business with Wally Street is not going to be an easy task on my part to accomplish. Nevertheless, I am kind of bull headed and I will give it a shot.

There is a lot of content and stories related to estate planning and elder care planning in the book. In my opinion, the attorneys who help people in these areas are some of the best friends that you will ever have. These professionals can save you thousands, if not millions of dollars with their expertise. As I point out in the book, using online legal document firms can cost you and your family a ton of money. I'm sorry, but do it yourself legal document creation is probably one of the stupidest things you can ever do. There are several stories in my book to prove it, too.

My character, Wally Street is pervasive throughout the book. I point out and contrast the routine advice of Wally Street that all ends up at the same place: Selling you products that generate the most revenue.

What you will discover is that there are parts of the book that will make you laugh, and perhaps, even cry. However, after reading it, I think you will be a convert to my way of thinking. Never again do business with the likes of a Wally Street.

Look for the book on Amazon and Kindle after the first of the year. If you are smart, then you will buy it.
