Owning the Dash®: Applying the Mindset of A Fitness Master To the Art of Family Financial Planning

Mastering money can seem impossible in a society focused on short-term impulses: Live for today. Forget about tomorrow. Owning the Dash® turns that mindset upside down.

Fitness guru, model, motivational speaker, and Delauney’s late cousin, Greg Plitt, built a fitness empire and adopted the phrase “Owning the Dash®.” A force of nature in and out of the gym, Greg believed in planning ahead: taking advantage of every moment and opportunity to make smart decisions now to ensure a healthy future later. In Owning the Dash®, CFP™ Anthony Delauney applies Greg’s mindset to his own area of expertise: personal and family financial planning.

Clear, concise, and accessible, Owning the Dash® makes planning your future easy and pain-free. Learn how to manage cash flow, knock out debt, minimize taxes, financially protect loved ones, invest with confidence, and save for both education and retirement. Leaving a lasting legacy is important—let Owning the Dash help you establish yours.

“Delauney demonstrates an empathetic understanding of how intimidating financial planning can be…useful…cogent…a nuts-and-bolts guide.” —Kirkus Reviews
