Where to buy it


Most young adults spend more time thinking about what to wear each day than about their finances. It's too bad, because time really is on your side when it comes to investing. The earlier you start, the more successful you'll be. Just ask Lesley Scorgie.
At the ripe old age of ten, Lesley started working for pocket money. Soon after that, she had a savings account. By the time she was 17, Oprah Winfrey came calling--and Lesley appeared on her show about Ordinary People, Extraordinary Wealth. Why? Because Lesley, now 23, is on track to be a millionaire by the time she's 25.
In Rich by Thirty, Lesley shares the secrets of her success with other young adults. From tips and hints on how to save what you earn, to more advanced information on investment vehicles and opportunities, Rich by Thirty provides practical advice and good, solid information.
Written in Lesley's friendly, accessible voice, Rich by Thirty features worksheets, a resource section and a glossary of money terms. It should be required reading for anyone under the age of 25.
Praise for Rich by Thirty:
"Rich by Thirty offers lots of sound financial advice rolled into an entertaining package." --Quill & Quire
