|| Hello Buzzy,
Nice forum you have here! I love it!
I just wanted to say that the "paying yourself first" is something that my husband and I have been struggling with ever since we got married back in 2002. Everybody keeps telling us to do it but, everytime we save a little something happens and we have no other resource but to take that money and fix the problem immediately. I know many other families who are struggling in the same way. How can a person put a stop to this cycle of living paycheck to paycheck? How can one ever save up enough to start investing and making their money start working for them?
Thanks again for such a great forum.

I hope we can generate a discussion here about some of the content in these books that have been the most meaningful to us and have spurred us to take action. For example, the idea of "paying yourself first," even if it is only mostly symbolic when you have little money, is very powerful when practiced consistently.
>Also, I would love to hear more about books that have affected your lives, preferably ones published before 1975. For example, Carnegie does not use the word wealth or rich in his title, but what he teaches in his "How to Win Friends and Influence People" helped make him the richest man in the US.
>Have fun on Ryze,
