Learn how to live “Beyond Paycheck to Paycheck”
Financial guru, author will host two educational events in June
PORTSMOUTH, NH — Millions of Americans are in the endless cycle of living paycheck to paycheck, but author Michael B. Rubin says it doesn’t have to be that way.
Rubin, who will release his new book, “Beyond Paycheck to Paycheck,” on June 29, will host two events — a book signing with time for questions and an educational workshop — in June.
On June 12, the Certified Financial Planner™ professional and certified public accountant will be available to answer questions after a presentation and book signing at RiverRun Bookstore in Portsmouth, N.H., at 7 p.m. Advanced copies of the book will be available for purchase that evening and there is no fee to attend.
A week later, on June 19 at 6:30 p.m., Rubin will host a workshop entitled “How to live ‘Beyond Paycheck to Paycheck,’” at the University of New Hampshire. This seminar will cover everything from the miracle of compounding interest to 401ks and choosing the right financial advisor.
Rubin’s financial planning book presents a unique, yet simple, dialogue about income and wealth that will inspire and educate readers from any walk of life. This unbiased, occasionally humorous but always easy-to-navigate financial guide has been called a “must-read” for all college graduates — and anyone else who is ready to live “Beyond Paycheck to Paycheck.”
Arthur F. von der Linden, Jr., founder and principal of Wingate Financial Group, praised the book’s “unique, conversational format” and “unbelievable glossary,” saying it is “The most straightforward financial planning book you’ll find. (It’s) understandable by the financially clueless, yet extremely beneficial to those who have already begun.”
Rubin, a professional speaker who holds a MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, founded the financial education company Total Candor® and has said it is his goal to show young adults that planning for their financial futures isn’t as daunting as it may seem.
“Despite the appearance of poor habits and a sense of indifference, most young adults really do want to improve their financial futures — they’re genuinely hungry for the money lessons they never received,” said Rubin. “Total Candor provides digestible financial information in an approachable, non-judgmental environment where the focus is exclusively on learning, not selling. ‘Beyond Paycheck to Paycheck’ allows us to jump-start our conversation.”
