Oprah Winfrey’s website is offering a free download of Suzie Orman’s new book Suze Orman’s 2009 Action Plan: Keeping Your Money Safe and Sound. Now, I’m not a huge fan of Oprah Winfrey, but I do like Suze Orman so, if I’m being offered a free download of a financial tips book I might be able to use, I’ll bite. I went to Oprah.com and downloaded the book. It’s fast (took about 3 minutes to download on my DSL connection), it’s free, and it’s easy to download. All you need is Adobe Acrobat Reader to be able to read it. The free Suze Orman download offer is available from Oprah.com until January 15th at 11:59pm, Central Time and, let me tell you, it’s well worth the time it takes to download.
Suze Orman’s 2009 Action Plan is a book that should be required reading for everyone. As the US economy continues to decline, Americans with financial problems need to read this book. And Americans without financial problems also need to read this book so they don’t develop any. In Suze Orman’s 2009 Action Plan, she covers credit, college loans, saving, investing for retirement, when to spend, and how to protect your family from financial difficulties. How can you pay your bills if you’ve just lost your job? If the value of your home is much less than what you paid for it, should you keep it? All topics and questions that are extremely pertinent in today’s rough economy.
Suze Orman has been a repeat guest on Oprah over the years. She’s loud, she’s brash and she’s harsh but she definitely knows her stuff. What I love about Suze Orman is she says it like it is. If somebody calls into her show, or asks a financial question on Oprah, she never tells them what they want to hear. Instead, she tells them what they need to hear.
Yesterday, I saw her on Larry King Live and was happy to see she was telling people to spend money to help the disintegrating US economy. She clarified what she had said on Oprah the day before by saying she was only telling people to spend money if they weren’t in debt, had a stable job and had money. If they were in debt, with a dicey-looking job and didn’t have money, spending was the last thing they should do. Others might have said “Yep, spend and help the economy”, but Orman has integrity and doesn’t want people already struggling to further hurt. The same when she answers a financial question from a viewer a little harshly. She’s not trying to hurt, only to point out if they keep going down the road they’re going down, they’ll be hurting more by the time they reach the dead end.
If you think Suze Orman’s 2009 Action Plan can help you, don’t forget to go to Oprah.com and download it before the end of the day on January 15th. You aren’t allowed to copy the file, use file sharing, or send it to anyone else, but you can download it for your own use. For a book that is $9.99 if you buy it, spending a couple of minutes downloading it from Oprah.com will save you more than that. Once you’ve downloaded it, don’t forget to read it. Suze Orman is nothing if she’s not correct. Even one little financial tip could save you thousands.
