"With refreshing honesty Sean Walsh tells it like it is to help us understand what is really going on with our financial system. We have been taught and raised in a society that wants us to believe in a financially secure system that really does not exist. Throughout the easy-to-read pages of "Financial Illusions and the Realities of Money" Sean unfolds the truth in a way that we can all relate to. He has taken a bold step to capture what we all need to hear, learn and understand so that we can break free before it's too late. Thank you, Sean, for revealing these illusions and explaining the truth about the financial "system" that is not what we are led to believe."
“This book smacks you in the face with Realities that are sometimes hard to swallow. It opens your mind to evaluating the choices you make with your money and reflect on why you make those choices. Most of us our conditioned to just follow along with the masses and their opinions, after reading this book, I am opening up my eyes and following the money!
The first thing that struck me when I read the book "Illusions and Realities" is how it reminded me of the conversations I used to have with a rich and very successful uncle: Straight forward, honest and compelling. Sean hits the nail on the head when he clearly uncovers the illusions that we've all been bombarded with all of our life about how to lead a financially secure life. This book inspired me to realign my financial plans with what is now my NEW reality. If you want to retire comfortably in America this book is a must read.
"I'm 29 years old and I have an bachelor's degree in accounting. I work for a large technology company in Milwaukee WI. My wife is 28 years old and a registered nurse working for a home care company. We thought a 401K was the way to riches. With the guidance and concepts talked about in the Financial Illusions and the Realities of Money my wife and I started to save the money we would have put into my 401K and our companies stock for the purchase of real estate. We've purchased one property with the savings and we're well on our way to the second and third property. We're well on our way to financial and time freedom!"
For a "quick read" this book is jam packed with lots of financial truths, sound advice and solid recommendations. Sean delivered on his promise of a clean, concise book great for any person at any stage in their financial journey.
