About the Book

A seasoned executive with four decades of experience in the institutional investment management business, Donald H. Young observes that most people are not happy with the financial security that they have achieved so far. They seem to be paralyzed into doing nothing because of the overwhelming amount of information available to them.

Filling a critical need that hasn't been adequately addressed with the bewildering array of both general and very specific books on achieving financial security, You Can Do It! provides an educational background and then a step-by-step comprehensive analysis to help you achieve your financial objectives, including:

Outlining key concepts

Setting objectives

Constructing balance sheets

Managing cash flow

Preparing budgets

Buying appropriate insurance

Planning for retirement

Creating necessary documents for managing personal affairs.

Presented in an easy-to-understand manner, You Can Do It! should be read as a whole, not as individual chapters. Key exhibits and a summary at the end of each chapter, which Young calls the Bottom Line, facilitate the understanding process. The only requirements for success are personal involvement and commitment on your part. After reading and implementing the recommendations of Young, you will have created a level of financial security to enable you to achieve your financial objectives.
