Publisher's Summary

What will you learn from this audiobook?
Tackling nine specific financial myths, Killing Sacred Cows is a must for mission-driven individuals. It plainly reveals these shocking truths kept hidden by the traditional financial industry:

A 401(k) is not the "safe" and "smart" plan that you have been told it is; in fact, it's an extremely risky investment for most people. Learn to create safer investments that are collateralized, cash-flowing, controllable, and aligned with your expertise, passion, and purpose.
Conventional retirement planning strategies, techniques, and products are probably keeping you from the retirement you really want. You can maximize the productivity of your resources, reduce risk, and retire well with the right education and a proper macroeconomic plan.
Net worth is a poor indicator of wealth and your ability to retire well. What matters is cash flow, and this book will teach you how to develop it.
Debt may not be what you think it is. Learn the proper definition of debt and how this understanding can immediately increase your prosperity.
"High risk equals high returns" is dangerous dogma. Learn how to increase your returns and reduce your risk through smart, value-based investing.
How to identify the hidden factors that are causing you financial pain and misery.
Finally, you can treat more than just symptoms and address root causes.

By the time you're done listening to this book, you'll know more about personal finance than most financial advisors - and this is no joke! You'll discover how to take control of your finances now. After hearing it, you'll scoff at generic recommendations from financial advisors who push the same products on every client regardless of their unique personal goals and financial blueprint.

Successful in business, but suck at personal wealth?

This book is for you. One huge take away for me was run your personal money like you run your business money. You would never stick away all your cash in business into your bank account waiting for the far off day when you're rich right? Then why would you personally!? The best way to create wealth is to spend on creating more value for people thereby increasing your income. Worry about creating more value, not spending less.

This book has many big points. It's not typical. I really enjoyed it.

Bullet points

Straight forward talk that challenges long followed financial strategies. It brings an awareness that these long held strategies are meant to be more ball and chain than truly financially liberating. I feel like I finally have a better questions to ask as I embark in a new direction.
