Do “Bank On Yourself” and “scam” even belong in the same sentence? To read or listen to some self-appointed experts, yeah, they do belong in the same sentence. It’s difficult for the naysayers to recognize such traits as patience, discipline, and self-restraint – the very traits that are prized by those who use and benefit from the Bank On Yourself method of safe wealth-building.
The naysayers would rather say, “It sounds too good to be true, therefore it is too good to be true.” But if something is “too good to be true” just because it sounds “too good,” then what about radio and television, motion pictures, airplanes, and even ballpoint pens? At one time or another, every one of those sounded too good to be true.
When something sounds too good to be true, examine it carefully and thoughtfully. That’s much smarter than running away from it with a closed mind.
Why Do Some People Dismiss Bank On Yourself As a Scam?
Here are the Bank On Yourself reviews of two of our hundreds of thousands of happy Bank On Yourself clients …
Steady Growth of His Savings Replaces a Rocky Ride for Bank On Yourself Reviewer
Dan Proskauer is an engineer with a graduate degree from Cornell University, the highest-rated engineering school in the Ivy League. Dan works for a major healthcare company, and he holds three U.S. patents.
In their own personal YouTube reviews of Bank On Yourself, actual users of the Bank On Yourself strategy describe the different ways they use this flexible tried-and-true financial resource. We’ve collected some of these reviews in our YouTube Bank On Yourself Reviews Playlist.
Perhaps you want to be able to seize an unexpected opportunity that requires ready cash, or pay off student and credit card debt, take a once-in-a-lifetime vacation, finance the purchase of an automobile, or even underwrite the crowdsourcing of a church major fundraising campaign. These Bank On Yourself reviewers tell you how they did it.
That’s only slightly better than the Center’s National Retirement Risk Index showed in 2010, in spite of a 45% inflation-adjusted increase in the stock market and a 6% increase in home prices since then.
I just recorded an inspiring interview with Grammy-nominated contemporary/pop and rhythm and blues recording star – and Bank On Yourself client – Karyn White.
Karyn was in her early 20’s when she became the first female artist to have her first three solo releases hit #1 on the R&B charts. She collaborated with industry legends including Babyface and L.A. Reid, before devoting herself full-time to raising a family.
After an 18-year hiatus, and a fan base that never forgot her, Karyn decided to record again. Only this time she decided to produce her new CD album, Carpe Diem, herself – and pocket the profits the record companies used to make off of her.
In this interview, Karyn reveals:
How she used her Bank On Yourself plan to finance her new CD herself (and why she probably wouldn’t have been able to do it otherwise)
How making the right choices about money puts you in the position of being able to take advantage of opportunities that will inevitably come your way
Since AAII said they would not publish my response or correction of the misinformation contained in their review, I told them I would publish it here and let YOU be the judge of whether AAII was twisting and omitting things… or being fair and unbiased.
So I picked ten (the winners are listed at the end of this post – check to see if your comment was one that was chosen). And I’ve excerpted from a number of the comments here, so I can share some of the highlights with you.
Jeffrey summarized the thinking of many commenters about AAII this way:
AAII naturally committed the typical strategic blunders essential to the charade proposed by the investment industry (Wall Street) and financial professionals (a.k.a. traders, gamblers, speculators, etc.). Any attempt to allow people an opportunity to truly grow wealth, reduce risk, and prepare for a more stable environment challenges the status quo of buy and lose (commonly referred to as buy and hold) and then industry pundits (AAII) start the negative attacks in order to establish fear of finances and preserve their base of profits. AAII omitted important aspects of your plan, distorted facts of your plan to promote obfuscation, and blatantly twisted all aspects of your plan in order to destroy your credibility.
Thank you for presenting people with an opportunity to actually prepare, plan, and realize a better financial picture.”
It was almost two years ago that Dan Proskauer – a Vice President of technology engineering for a major health care company who holds three U.S. patents – first heard of Bank On Yourself.
Dan lives below his means, has significant savings discipline, and is a sophisticated investor. But when the financial crisis hit, Dan realized he had nothing to show for decades of saving and investing his hard-earned money and “doing all the right things” we’ve been taught to do.
He felt angry, betrayed… and willing to open his mind and find out if there was something better out there.
Dan is very analytical and has since spent literally hundreds of hoursinvestigating Bank On Yourself. He has already started seven Bank On Yourself-type policies because, as he puts it, “the more I look into Bank On Yourself, the better it looks.”
Dan recently contacted me and generously offered to share his findings with you. Whether you already use Bank On Yourself, or you’ve been considering adding it to your financial plan, you’ll learn something of value from this interview.
