The Art Of Financial Planning ...

Dan was a single guy living at home with his father and working in the family business.When he found out he was going to inherit a fortune when his sickly father died, he decided he needed a wife with which to share his fortune.

One evening at an investment meeting he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Her natural beauty took his breath away.

'I may look like just an ordinary man,' he said to her,'but in just a few years, my father will die, and I'll inherit 20 million dollars.'

Impressed, the woman obtained his business card and three days later, she became his stepmother.

Women are so much better at estate planning than men.

Remember, if you fail to plan then you plan to fail!

C'mon...let's get some coffee, my friend!

That's just not true Jim. Life is but a dream. Don't forget that. Else you are setting yourself up for failure. And unhappiness. Always.

Hey John...thanks for the visit. Well, dream or no dream, the purpose of this blog is to entertain and be of some use to folks.

The story is meant to be humorous and nothing else. As far as the saying goes...a much more leared man than myself first said it. I got it from reading Napolian Hill.

Thanks again...

Hi Jim...once again you made me laugh. Thanks for the giggles.

Have a great day,
Manu.

Hey Manu...thanks for stopping by. I'm glad you got a kick out of the post as that was my intention. I enjoy making people smile a little...and hope that I succeed in some small way to do just that.

You have a good day as well...

I know Jim. And am not that serious about it, ok?

And am a man without a plan. Thank goodness!

And I do appreciate your humor.

Cheers.
