Today I just want to give you a straightforward personal recommendation, so here goes:
What if you could:
- Show your kids how they can finally make their wishes come true
- Help your child experience systematic accomplishment again and again (after you're done, you'll know for sure they will ALWAYS be okay...)
- Show your child the way to repeated success and the pride of achievement
- Help your child feel significant and competent... because now their success does NOT depend on their teachers, or even you!
- Give your child a TRUE SENSE OF PURPOSE (it'll carry them through thick and thin, for the rest of their lives)
Well, if you ever thought about teaching your kids or grandchildren (or yourself for that matter!) about goal setting using the Law of Attraction, then this is definitely something you'll want to check out.

One interesting bit of news that really got my attention this week was that of Nick D’Aloisio, the 17-year-old millionaire (yes, millionaire at 17!), who sold his smartphone app called Summly to Yahoo for a cool $30 million!
(See our book of the month)
It’s quite an interesting story actually: D’Aloisio started using the computer at 9, and began writing apps for smartphones (particular the iPhone and the iOS) in 2008 when he was 12 – back when the Apple SDK was made released to public.

Did you know that today is both cheese lovers day and blue Monday?
Blue Monday is a Monday in January, typically the third Monday of the month, that is characterized as the most depressing day of the year (unless you are a cheese lover I suppose!).
Anyway today I wanted to bring you a little known and rather worrying statistic and that is the decline in the personal savings rate (the part of income that people save).
In the USA in 1960 the personal savings rate was 10.4%, by the end of 2018 it had dropped to 8.8% and was as low as 7.9% by the end of last year.
Savings and investment are a vital part of anyone’s financial planning so the fall in savings is not a good sign, particularly if we bear in mind that we should be saving at least 10% of our income!
To get a good overview of how and why to save or invest money I would recommend you read “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki. It’s possibly the most influential book on personal finance ever written.
