DESCRIPTION: Are you caught up in the financial thinking of the last century? That's when we learned to buy a home and pay it off as quickly as possible. It made sense in the conditions that existed back then. It doesn't make sense today.

How would you like to:
1) Safely leverage and compound assets you didn't realize you had?
2) Become your own bank and build family wealth?
3) Pile up stock market gains, but never take the losses?
4) Lock-in a rich, secure and carefree retirement?
5) Transform the IRS into your wealth-building partner?
6) Create real wealth, empowering you to help others?
7) Get to your existing retirement funds with little or no taxes?
8) Leave a fortune to your heirs?

STOP SITTING ON YOUR ASSETS make these strategies crystal clear -- and you can apply them with security and ease. If you own a home, you owe it to yourself to know about today's new reality: You are sitting on a potential fortune that can safely and confidently be put to work to build a massively abundant financial future. A future so rich that -- before STOP SITTING ON YOUR ASSETS -- could have only existed in your dreams.

"... the effervescent Marian Snow, in her groundbreaking book, STOP SITTING ON YOUR ASSETS, has set down a number of easy-to-implement solutions to take you from cash crunch to real riches. Snow s advice is honest, informative, and downright revolutionary. So forget the money managers, whose costs and fees actually hurt investors, and instead grab a firm hold on Snow s timely book. Indeed, STOP SITTING ON YOUR ASSETS is every bit as good as money in your bank." - ELLEN TANNER MARSH, New York Times, Best Selling Author --From the Back Cover

From New York Times best selling author, television and film writer, RIDLEY PEARSON: "There s plenty of great information in this well put together book. It s both readable and educational. I m going to stop sitting on my assets and start sitting on the ideas expressed in this book." - RIDLEY PEARSON, New York Times Best Selling Author of "Cut and Run", the Boldt/Matthews novel series and "The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer", Co-Author of Book and Disney Feature Animation: "Peter and the Starcatchers" --Directly from Ridley Pearson

"STOP SITTING ON YOUR ASSETS is not a book written on theory it is written on reality! I can categorically make this statement because of my decades of actual financial planning experience. My files are overflowing with substantial numbers of clients that have already benefited from many of the facts and ideas expressed in Marian's book. I feel can speak authoritatively because I have been a full-time financial planner for almost 30 years, a Certified Financial Planner for over 20 years, securities licensed for over 15 years and have written four personal finance books. Please believe me when I say, "This book is a MUST READ". - James P. Kraiss, CFP and Author, "Multiply Your Money, Minimize Your Risk" --Directly from James P. Kraiss

From the Author

What if I told you I'm about to share inside secrets that, before now, only the very wealthy among us knew? What if I told you these secrets will absolutely transform you into a millionaire? What if this proven system could be set up so that you could just implement it once to be wealthy? Then, what if I showed you how you could recycle it every three or five years to double or even triple your wealth? What if I said it doesn't involve effort, concentration or budgeting? Would you want to know more? This book should carry a warning. "What you are about to read is contrary to what you've always been taught and what you may have previously believed about how money works."

Most likely, the largest chunk of your present belief system about wealth has probably been built upon information you received from unwealthy sources. What you've been taught or have heard about protecting, borrowing and accumulating money was presented to you by people without real wealth of their own. Isn't that true for you?

STOP SITTING ON YOUR ASSETS reveals a revolutionary, yet easy, system for building riches that leaves most of the other plans out there in the dust. It simply shows you the secrets of how to take the assets you already have, lock-in their safety and turbo-charge them the way the wealthy do. This solution can work for just about anybody - if you spend less than you make - no matter your wealth or income level.

I'm confident you'll find the revolutionary ideas presented will surprise you, possibly amaze you and, hopefully, benefit and liberate you. I've chosen to concentrate on the ideas and theories that can make you a fortune, rather than the technical and legal ramifications involved in the individual application of some of the products discussed. This will allow you, the reader, quicker access to information about the core concepts behind these wealth-optimizing approaches.

As you go through each chapter, please keep an open mind. While these strategies are different, they're still very conservative and safe methods for assured wealth building. Most financial professionals are unaware of these strategies... but then, most financial professionals aren't wealthy.

Between 2000 and 2003, millions of average investors lost as much as nine trillion dollars, much of which was in their retirement accounts invested in the market via stocks or mutual funds. I'll show you how the convergence of three unrelated events in this fresh millennium have created a new financial solution that could have protected and prevented those losses.

As our aging society moves toward retirement, we need to shield our assets from loss, boost our wealth, look forward to self-sufficient older years beyond the age of 100, living with security and peace of mind. We need a hero and the H.E.R.O. Solution may just be the answer.

This is a very easy to read book, with plenty of understandable illustrations as examples.
Shelby Lou
Reading this book was a real eye opener...had to read it twice to make sure I was really seeing and believing what I was reading.
Tom Greenwell
She also gives an example of someone who could pay cash for a house but takes out a mortgage anyway and invests the money.

I, too, was in awe after reading this book. The ideas are presented in a simple, easy to understand way, and it seems to me to be very logical. I'm no financial genius, rather a former math teacher and the numbers seem to work on paper. But, really, after the awe has worn off and reality hits, what's the catch? This seems too easy. If this idea has been in existance for several years, then why hasn't it caught on with the "masses?" Why don't more financial advisors recommend this? Is there something I'm missing or does it really work that simply and just nobody knows about it? Somebody....give me the real scoop!

Having read most of the titles on this strategy, I find this to be the easiest to read and digest. The strategy outlined in the book will produce more wealth for folks. The financial products suggested (mortgages, cash value life insurance, municipal bonds) are very useful products, that like all products generates profits and fees for some. The typical financial planning strategies (invest in mutual funds, pay down mortgage, etc.) given to the masses have been demonstrated to be failing most folks. Although this typical advice has been doled out for two generations now, the median retirement account balance for those nearing retirement age (55-64 years old) is $83,000. Until the financial planning community takes responsibility for this failure, instead of attacking those who dare to think outside of the propaganda box they have created, I for one will not listen to a thing they have to say.

And yes, I have applied this strategy for several years now and see it increasing my wealth every year.

This book explains in simple terms that what we have been taught by our parents and the government is completely wrong when it comes to planning for your retirement. I recommend everyone read this book, the concepts are simple and make more sense than investing in the stock market where you can lose money and paying off your house simply makes the banks rich.

I am in the mortgage business, and I recommend this book to all of my clients. The principles in this book are not new....they are simply being broken down in this book so that you don't need a phd in finance to practice them! Well done!

Reading this book was a real eye opener...had to read it twice to make sure I was really seeing and believing what I was reading. Now after implementing the plan, I can truely say I have a "true sense of security knowing I can now look at my future social security checks as a bonus and not as a means of survival". Great illustrations. This book is a must read especially for baby-boomers wondering how they are going to make it in retirement.

Format: Hardcover
I am skeptical of `get rich quick schemes' and I was hesitant to read this book. I read the book anyway and then did my own due diligence to find out if what the author was saying was actually the truth or not. After careful consideration and research of my own, I find that this book is accurate in its concepts. I have now personally implemented the strategies found in the book and I am now feeling more security with my finances. Before reading this book, I had no idea that I was heading down the financial road with one foot on the gas pedal and one foot on the brake. As the book put it, I am now heading down the road with "Real Wealth Vision".
I highly recommend this book!

This book is the simpliest to understand treatise on how to use leverage to build wealth that is currently published. I have read most of them and found Ms. Snow's examples clear and to the point. Are these concepts for everyone. No, I don't think they are. But they are for everyone to consider. If you care about planning your financial future you would be cheating yourself if you don't consider these ideas.

I have been in the financial services business for over thirty years and after reading this book, it has given me a new outlook on my business. The book contains practical information on establishing a sound retierment future. While reading this book, it was like I was having a personal conversation with the author. This book was written to be understood and not boring. This book is full of practical examples and case studies. I believe that anyone who reads this book with an open mind will enhance their future significantly.
