Typical of Daniel’s caring attitude he offers the following Introduction – ‘At first, I bought the idea that not everyone could save. Making ends meet is tough. Maybe “buy now, pay later” was the only way to go for some people. After reflecting on this issue, though, I've realized that saving has little to do with money. It has far more to do with attitude, discipline, and a willingness to rewire the circuits. A former Peace Corps volunteer proved this to me when he told me this story: Some years ago, a family in India lived in conditions that, while destitute by our standards, were average for their neighborhood. They had a one-room shack that housed grandparents, parents, and five children. This Peace Corps volunteer noticed that the mother, as a mealtime tradition, would throw an extra handful of rice into the pot in case company came by for dinner. This was a beautiful gesture of hospitality and generosity. But company hardly ever came. The volunteer gently suggested that the mother save this extra handful of rice by throwing it into a bucket. Slowly, the bucket filled, and when it reached the brim, he took her to the marketplace and helped her sell the rice. This empowered mother decided she could get by with less if it meant a better future. With this discipline came empowerment. It offered her family hope and opportunity. When he visited a few years later, not only was this family continuing to save, they had taught their neighbors to save. They had founded a food cooperative. Each month, a member of the cooperative went to the big city and bought bulk quantities at wholesale prices for the group…. I wrote this book for several reasons. One was a desire to summarize a life’s worth of learning in my chosen field. I feel blessed to have had such great teachers, lessons, and opportunities come my way and want to pass it along. In particular, I’d like to pass these insights along to the next generation, as it is today’s 20- and 30-somethings that will be making the most important capital allocation decisions in the decades to come. This book is a legacy to my children and my children’s generation. I would like to improve financial literacy in the world. If people had the basic understanding of money and how money works shared in this book, I believe civil society would operate at a more informed and effective level. It still surprises me that the citizens of America, the cradle of capitalism, are so significantly under-educated as to how money and finance actually work. This book is a small attempt to do my part to improve financial literacy. I also wrote this book to share a mindset that sees life as a learning laboratory. This has been an enormously helpful worldview for me. Everything that happens can carry a lesson within it. Seen this way, money is a fantastic teaching tool. As you use it in different ways (save, invest, spend, give), you will learn different life lessons. Learn the lessons and overtime, you will develop better and better decision-making processes which will optimize your life’s choices. Optimize your choices, optimize your life. (In Book Three, for example, I share how integrating head and heart with an investment mindset can bring outsized impacts in giving.) In addition, I want to help you solve (or at least deal with) the complexity inherent in the world of money and finance.
Daniel divides his subject into three sections – Building a Solid Foundation for Wealth, Maximizing Returns: Thinking like an Entrepreneurial Investor, and Head & Heart: Giving with business Mindset. Rarely has a book on finances been written with such depth of knowledge yet with such a degree of compassion as this. This is a book that makes for learning how money functions in words that are easily comprehended. Of significance, ‘100% of the profits from this book will go toward healing the wounds of genocide by contributing to the All Nations Training Center at the Pine Ridge Reservation. Highly recommended reading. Grady Harp, May 18
