Ten years ago, I published my book, “I Will Teach You to Be Rich.”
Do you remember what also happened 10 years ago?
In March 2009, we were in the depths of a once-in-a-lifetime financial crisis and full-blown recession. Chances are, you know someone who was laid off.
In fact, it was so bad that, as The New York Times noted:
On March 9, 2009, the day the bull market was born, the stock market, like the economy, was in deep, seemingly existential distress. The S&P 500 was down 57 percent from its 2007 peak.
Compounding the pain was the nationwide collapse in home prices, which landed a direct hit on most households’ greatest source of wealth.
Yes, my book was published at the bottom of the worst financial crisis of our generation.
