The Money Talk-Retirement & Estate Planning for Indian Americans
Why I wrote The Money Talk specifically for the Indian American Mindset.
To commemorate my 25 years in the financial services, I wanted to write a book. Initially, I wanted to write a book on motivation and spirituality. The things I really enjoy reading. But there are already so many books on those subjects in the marketplace.
Then, I thought about writing a book on financial planning, but there are also a bunch of those books out there.
Finally, I decided to write a book on the two things I knew best, which are working with the Indian community as well as financial planning.
“The Money Talk – Retirement and Estate Planning for Indian Americans” is one of the first books on retirement & estate planning specifically written for the Indian American mindset.
You might be asking, what makes the Indian community different?
That is actually a great question. I believe it is our culture that makes us different. We come from a culture where when the parents live with their children when they are older and the children take care of their parents. Unfortunately, the culture here in the U. S. is a bit different. We don’t know who our children will marry and what cultural values they will hold and even if they want to, it may not be possible for them to take care of us in our golden years.
The Money Talk speaks to the Indian American mindset and our cultural values. The Indian American community in the U. S. has done quite well in all facets of our society including medical, hotels, retail, technology as well as many others. But many of us haven’t adaquately planned for their retirement and healthcare expenses. Not to mention setup their wills and trusts to pass on their wealth to the next generation.
If you have read some of the reviews on amazon, you will notice that many people have commented that it is a very easy book to read written in simple language, lots of stories and examples.
To me, “The money talk” is a part memoir for me, part motivational book that is designed to open your mind, and part practical practical educational book that you can use to guide you on your financial journey.
I believe you will enjoy reading it! I hope you check it out and it inspires you to new possibilities.
My intention is reach as many people as possible and that is why I have kept the eBook version for just 99 cents to keep it affordable for everyone. If you do purchase the book and if you find it delivers value, would you mind leaving me a review on amazon? The more positive verified reviews we have, the more we can encourage other people to read it.
I would also love to hear from you to find out what you thought about the book.
