An Interview with Sunny Lee
What do you think the most important takeaway from this book is?
The important takeaway from the book is that Money Masters and Money Monsters are created through what they’re taught. Our children are the most common money monsters and their parents are often their creators. Like most skills in life, when our children are taught money skills early, they can become Money Masters who can take charge of their finances and life. In my book, I will show you the seven simple habits that I taught my sons in order to make them Money Masters. Instead of depending on me to give money to them and tell them what to do, my sons know how to earn, save, give and invest money for their future. It’s like a teaching a man to fish instead of simply giving him a fish. When a man is taught this skill, he can eat for lifetime.
How has your experience as a financial adviser changed the way you look at money?
Money is essential to a safe, comfortable life, and money is good and useful. It is not the root of all evil, but the love of money is. In my profession, I’ve met many generous multi-millionaires who love giving and sharing. However, I’ve also met many people whose ultimate goal in their lives is to make lots of money and get rich. They are willing to do whatever it takes to get what they want, and it’s very dangerous to be in that kind of state of mind. We reap what we sow, whether good or bad, and that’s the law of sowing and reaping.
As a financial adviser, what are the biggest mistakes people make when creating a financial plan, and how would you recommend avoiding it?
The biggest mistake people often make is not making any plans at all for their financial future, and they keep their fingers crossed wishing and hoping that they will be fine. However, “if you fail to plan, you are planning to fail” as Benjamin Franklin said. You can’t be exempt from life being life. Life happens all the time no matter who you are or how well you are prepared. Rain falls on everybody, so you need to have a good financial plan if you want to have a good life.
Another mistake many people often make when they create a financial plan is that they don’t ask for help nor seek advice from financial professionals in the process. Nobody knows everything, but everybody knows something. Creating a financial plan is like building a house – if you don’t lay a solid foundation first, the house will collapse. It’s like a building a house on the sand instead of rock. A good financial plan requires both short-term and long-term goals as well as many detailed action plans to reach those goals. It also requires commitment and persistence until you get the job done. Having a long-term financial plan is like running a marathon. You need to be on the racetrack no matter what happens along the way until you finish the race. In the same way, your financial game is not over until your life is over, so don’t make permanent financial decisions based on temporary events in life, and don’t try to make a right plan but make a plan first and make it right.
As Christians and work-at-home moms, we know how important positivity is. I’m always on the lookout for positive, family friendly shows, movies and things happening in our media so that we can help promote them and let them know we want more Christian content in Hollywood.
If you’ve watched the tv show The Voice, you’ll know it’s an example of this. In fact, when Executive Producer Mark Burnett (The Bible, Son of God, Survivor, Shark Tank, etc..) pitched the show, he was told that a show that didn’t include humiliation would never work … but Mark went ahead and created the show specifically to ONLY build people up!
We’re excited to have some water bottles to giveaway courtesy of The Voice!
