Great Summer Reads - Day 1 - Winning or Losing: The Financial and Retirement Race


I am so excited to participate in this event for the Great Summer Reads Countdown this year!
And this first book/author has special significance to me!

Come say Hello to my Father and check out his amazing book!


Robert Lamoreaux, JD is a successful attorney who has specialized in estate and financial planning throughout his career. He holds degrees from Brigham Young University and University of Utah College of law as well as certificates from many other institutes of higher education around the country. He has lectured extensively from coast to coast and has traveled the world managing assets, which have been gifted, to an international charitable organization. Robert has given legal counsel to numerous corporations, colleges and universities, prominent individuals and the IRS. He has vast knowledge, which has come from planning numerous estates of all types and sizes. Robert currently has a successful private practice and continues to be in demand for his work on estate law and financial planning.

Q&A With the Author:
1.     What inspired your book?
a.         I realized, while attending an Estate Planning Seminar in Seattle, that everyone needed the information I had and it was not accessible to most people because of cost.  A book seemed a reasonable solution at the time. 
2.     How do you spend your free time

a.     I go on missions for my church, with my wife; I read good books;  I surf the internet;  I watch old chick flick movies and spend time with my family.

Q&A with the author!

1.         If you could travel to any time in history, when would you
visit?
a.      This is a bad question for me.  I love history of all ages, and I am looking forward to
the future.  I don’t imagine that this question could span the life of the
earth, but it should
2.       Do you have any advice for other writers?
a.       When you get discouraged, don’t quit, keep moving.  Don’t let someone else
determine what’s best for you, friends, editors, publishers, critics.
However, you must educate yourself and be in tune with the times.  If
someone gives you a suggestion, ponder it and decide if it is a good
suggestion.  Don’t  throw all suggestions away just because you don’t
want to listen to other’s thoughts.

Snippet from the Book:

There are probably as many approaches to money as there are people.  These range from those who worship money to those who hate money.  From the penthouse to the hermitage, from the large estate to the mud hut, each has his or her own vision as to what money means.  Money, like all other things, is a tool to be used to accomplish goals in life.  Having given much thought to this, I have reduced my philosophy on money to a few small items which, to me, seem very important. 
·         Money is a tool—nothing more, nothing less.  It helps accomplish goals and dreams. 
·         It is not how much money you make that counts, it is how much money you keep.
·         Having money sooner is better than later.  The longer the time period you have money, the more things you can do with it. 
·         More money is better than less money.  More money buys you more options, it reaches more goals, and it buys you a better retirement.
·         Money allows you to benefit your church, give to charity, and bless many individual lives.
                         Money is absolutely an essential part of life—you can’t escape it, and you can’t live without it.  When you reach retirement, your quality of retirement will depend on how much you made and what you did with it.
