I know that you can stop money arguments forever if you’re willing to do the work. I’ve created my first – maybe last – e-product (with videos, workbooks, etc.), and I’m really excited about it.
I call it Money School for Couples – How to Fix Your Budget, Spending and Debt (and Stop Worrying and Arguing About Money).
In the 25 years I’ve been advising people about their money, I’ve seen a great deal of suffering, arguing and pain that was completely unnecessary. I felt compelled to create a program that snuffs this problem out.
There hasn’t been any other product I’ve seen that really does a good job addressing this, in my opinion. That’s why I put together these videos, worksheets and exercises that do. I’m announcing the pre-launch here. If you are a subscriber, the announcement is also in your inbox.
I’m passionate about what I’ve created, and I think it’s going to be really helpful to couples who struggle with or worry about any part of their finances. If you struggle with these issues, I hope you consider learning more.
I get it. No excuses. You are right. I appreciate it.
In reading about what your e-book you offering, I was first interested, but quickly became annoyed at hearing about your whole process. If you have something you want people to have, stand behind it without the wining and pretending you are insufficient in what you have to offer.
I want to be inspired by people who come from sufficiency and capability, because that is the truth. And, definitely the truth about you. So please stop hiding so I can be inspired to do the same.
I guess I need to listen to my own words.
If you believe in the quality of the product you should not hesitate to market it whenever and wherever you can!

This is a great idea for a book and I bet it easily finds an audience.
After launching an eBook ourselves, I had similar thoughts: how to market without marketing, you know?
You done good, though, and I wish you the best on this.
Financial Samurai says
Sounds like a great plan. Everybody sign up and get cracking!!
Awesome dp…..I can’t wait to hear how it goes…
Love it! Will let you know how it goes…
Neal Frankle says
You hit the nail on the head.
The price is indeed low…..for this week.
I appreciate your feedback…I really do.
Tom Sirois says
I understand, and appreciate your dilemma on how to market this. I am unsure who reads your blog (demographically-speaking,etc.). My hunch is that many of the folks who read, and follow your blog are like me–one who has their financial life together, maybe even advise people on occasion. So your book may not directly help your readers, but they certainly interact with many folks who could benefit from this book. And, honestly, I was surprised at the relatively inexpensive price you are offering it.
Keep up the good work. Love your blog.
I think a direct email from you would not be offensive.
Neal Frankle says
I appreciate the kick in the pants. I didn’t mean to say that I don’t want to promote this…I’m just posing the question of sending an email to subscribers.
But based on what you and Chris suggest, it probably makes sense.
Neal Frankle says
Chris….thanks. Coming from you I’m really encouraged.
OK……I’ll get to work on those letters…
Why are you pretending you don’t want to market this and make some money while helping a lot of people? Do you feel bad about wanting people to pay for it?
One of the big things about frugality is that you shouldn’t be cheap, but instead you should pay for quality. Based on your blog, I assume this is a quality product and will have a big impact on those who use it.
You should do everything you can to get people involved. Some people probably won’t love having an extra email in their inbox, but others will get a lot out of a product they may otherwise would not be aware of. And if you make some money, that’s good, too!
Chris Garrett says
Your product is going to help people. Helping people is good. Be proud that you can do something that benefits other people.
Of course there will be some people who don’t like the idea of you earning an income (how DARE you feed your family!? heh), or succeeding (your success diminishes me!), but that is about THEM not YOU.
So, yeah, be glad that you can do something positive and tell people about it! 😀
I’m sure your customers will love it and get real benefit out of your advice, and that is what really counts.
