Debt Free Children

"Debt Free Children" by John B. Wasik

Having just finished high school, and or college, the number one question appears to be what am I going to do now? Do I turn to the left or do I turn to the right? Each decision would lead me down a different path, but which one is the right one? Decisions, decisions, decisions! Just to get a job and become one of the majority that makes just enough to pay their bills and exist is not desirable. How do I plan for the future and acquire the necessary assets for a family and not let it take me three quarters of my life to achieve. If I want to, how can I retire early and enjoy the only life I will ever have? These are questions that all who are starting out in life need to answer. The system designed in “Debt Free Children” tackles this concern and breaks out a five-year plan that allows both parents and children, working together, to ensure a healthy financial future that is stable and when followed will be as rewarding as you possibly want it to be.
