About the Book
Melvin Greene understood at an early age that serving a company for over thirty years would not allow him to retire at his desired age of fifty-five. He knew retirement was attainable but wondered if he would be able to afford a lifestyle of ease, comfort and freedom. The aim, at some point in life, was to experience and enjoy the residual of his hard work.
The reality for most hard-working Americans is that after they retire, they will need a part-time job to support themselves financially. He knew concepts such as investment strategies, planning for retirement and estate planning were not freely shared. The people who could profit from these approaches were usually not privy to this information and the people who knew did not often share. Melvin was on a mission to discover what most people would not share. He worked the nine-to-five job and invested the money he would have spent on lunch. Instead of purchasing extravagant items, he invested. While others were buying fancy clothes, he was buying stocks and bonds. Melvin taught hundreds of others to do the same. It was a paradigm shift in thinking.
A.F.I.R.E. will show you how to do the same! He is not knocking fancy items; in fact, he now owns them. But they came only after his nest egg was secured.
Throughout this book, Melvin invites you to understand how to invest, so you can be in the driver’s seat! He emphasizes that investing is a learned behavior. It should give you hope that you can do the same with the right coach.
