Thomas Rood
From the author: I developed the Paycheck Independence Day money management system back in 2004 for my own personal use. Back then, I had no intention of ever writing a book. I simply needed a money management system that would let me stop needing a paycheck to pay bills. Of course, I made the system easy to use. Why would I make it hard for myself? Now that I am sharing the system with everyone, the good news is that it's easy for you, too. So, how easy is it? Well...

Can you make a list of your bills? I hope so. Paycheck Independence Day introduces new categories of bills that will determine how you stop paying them from your paycheck. It will even tell you in what sequence to eliminate each bill in order to make it easiest for you. You systematically eliminate bills one-by-one and you get to enjoy the results immediately. There is only one mathematical equation in the book and, as I like to say "If you know how to use a calculator and you made it out of fourth grade, you can do this equation."

I suggest that you pick up a copy of the book and read it. Chapter 7 is titled "The Hard Part Made Easy - Getting Started" and it has checklists to help you do just that: get started. After reading the book, if you have any questions, come on back to this website. Somebody may have already asked the same questions. If not, click on the "Question or Comment" link and ask them yourself. I love to answer questions.

My wife and I have 9 bills that we do not pay out of our paychecks. That's really nice for us and I want it to be nice for you, too. Give it a try. You'll be glad you did.
