Secrets of the rich! Come on out on Oct. 6 at Assembly of God and we will talk about all those secrets.

We will talk about all those shortcuts to make you rich with 100 percent financing. We will talk about the false hope of the lottery.

Yes, gambling represents false hope and denial. We will talk about how no one teaches you how to manage your money and it is up to you to learn. We will use that “B” word: Budget.

John Maxwell defines a budget as people telling their money where to go instead of wondering where it went. You can’t have someone lose weight for you, you have to change your exercise and diet habits.

Dave Ramsey says that handling money is the same way, you have to change your behavior. We will talk about Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 13. Yes, come out, you will have some fun and maybe learn something.

We start at 6:15 p.m. at Assembly of God on South Davis Road.

Jerry Johnson is president of First Realty of LaGrange.
