How do you think will happen when most people spend so much time planning their retirement and investment every year, they spend watching football? I suspect that we all have a lot more money to better prepare for retirement, and may even be able to afford tickets to the Super Bowl every year.
Steve Roberts, with almost twenty years experience in the financial field, knows that most people – including him – would have preferred to play or watch football than the stock market. In the end, Steve himself was three – Letterman sports in high school, lettering in football, basketball, and baseball. He was a member of the football team Ricks Junior College, and today he coaches youth football. But this does not mean that he does not appreciate the financial planning and realize its importance. What does that mean, he had a brilliant idea to write a book about financial planning, using football metaphors to make the theme not only more interesting, but it is easier to understand for many of his readers.
Steve breaks his new book, "Financial Planning Football" into three sections: Protection; misdemeanor; and coaches, special teams and systems. Then, in each section, he discusses a valuable asset for your retirement or investing portfolio, and he compares that investment in soccer players. For example, he compares car insurance for defensive tackles and a universal life insurance with the outside linebacker – is the players on your defense, because you need to protect your assets. Players at your crimes include the center (your current account), the power to decide (the fixed annuity), and heavy end (bonds). Steve understands that you do not always need every player on your team, but it will guide you through the advantages and you may decide that you can use the player to create the best possible plan for the games themselves.
I & # 39; I read several financial planning books in the past, and they are useful in a variety of ways. What makes football Financial Planning stands out not only that the football metaphor is fun, but it's the way Steve breaks a team makes each player or a financial instrument is very easy to understand; because each player / investment product with a & # 39; is the head itself, this book is also available for linking back, and to find specific items later.
Steve makes discussion easy to follow, and it really made me think about a variety of financial options out there, and why some of them will be great assets to have on their team, while others do not. After all, it reminds us that each of us & # 39; is the owner of the team, and even our own team quarterback, so we have to make decisions about n & # 39; plays.
As an added bonus, Steve offers to play graphics for avid football fans, so they can see how their financial liability or defense is. At the end of each chapter, it also provides a short chart or table for the reader to fill in, asking questions about such things as insurance deductible, which is projected monetary value or income, so that people can write all your data and store it in one easy to find and remember the location, as well as to evaluate the different possibilities that exist for their financial game plan.
In the end, Steve & # 39; Since the entire system is reduced to the determination that a system or philosophy works best for you, because no one team will not work for everyone. Steve emphasizes this point in the following story :.
"In order to win the game (price is more in your investment), it is important to have a system (philosophy), which corresponds to your quarterback & # 39; s abilities and talents, and not all of BYU & # 39; s great quarterbacks have had success in the NFL, I've heard that BYU & # 39 ;. former coach with,, Lavell Edwards says he believes Mark Wilson, one of his greatest defenders, would have been more successful in the NFL if he played in another system.
