Currently we have two personal finance books available for purchase, and all proceeds from sales support the Foundation directly.
5 Buckets, 4 Shovels, a Beach and a Map: A Guide to Financial Security, is a book for adults of every age and income, written using simple language and illustrations to help convey the complicated subject of financial planning. The metaphors of buckets, shovels, a beach and a map are used to explain the process of creating a financial plan and opens your mind to the things you should be thinking about in order to achieve your financial goals.
Adulting 101: A Guide to Personal Finance, is focused on young adults and provides a basic understanding of their personal finances. “We find that the basics of personal finance just aren’t being taught in high school and there’s a great need for this type of knowledge. Topics like handling a first paycheck, opening a bank account, credit card basics are just a few of the topics we want to tackle.”
We also have a third book that is not related to personal finance, but features a series of short-stories written by Steve Mayer, called The Toughest Guy I Ever Knew and Other Short Stories, and is personal in nature. With his father featured on the cover, Steve’s short stories provide bits of advice on business and life and are sprinkled with humor and his philosophy on running his business. Steve states, “We feel that providing this book to clients right off the bat helps them get a unique perspective about how we run the business and our philosophy on working with clients during their engagements.”
