Why David Wrote “The Secret Asset”
I sold my day-to-day business to a division of a New York Stock Exchange company in 2003. I went on to build a number of businesses, write books and training programs, host a TV show, and ultimately, become the founder and chairman of one American Stock Exchange company and the president of another.
For the past several years, I’ve used the knowledge I gained and the success I’ve had making the family in this book more than $150 million-to help people make more money with less risk. I realized that I could reach more people by putting all this knowledge into a book so people like you could fully understand why investment-grade life insurance is one of the greatest assets you have for building family wealth.
While “bad information leads to bad decisions,” the opposite can just as easily be true. So here’s to truly “good information” on investment-grade life insurance. I’ve written this book using a fictional family, which closely resembles my own, to illustrate the various strategies and techniques involved in this genuine “revolution.” It is my sincere hope that you not only enjoy the book, but also learn and apply it to your life and family-that you may make “good decisions” buying investment-grade life insurance.
