Welcome to the Consumer Financial Protection
Bureau’s Your Money, Your Goals: A financial
empowerment toolkit for social services
programs! If you’re reading this, you are
probably a case manager, or you work with case
managers.
Finances affect nearly every aspect of life in the
United States. But many people feel overwhelmed
by their financial situations, and they don’t know
where to go for help. As a case manager, you’re in
a unique position to provide that help. Clients
already know you and trust you, and in many
cases, they’re already sharing financial and other
personal information with you. The financial
stresses your clients face may interfere with their
progress toward other goals, and providing
financial empowerment information and tools is
a natural extension of what you are already doing.

Make better decisions! Michael A. Roberto will help you achieve deeper consensus, get past groupthink and “yes men,” and achieve superior results in every decision you make — especially your most complex and highest-stakes decisions! Roberto’s Why Great Leaders Don’t Take Yes for an Answer, Second Edition gives you a powerful framework for promoting honest, constructive dissent and skepticism; test your assumptions; more thoroughly and fairly considering “best alternatives”; crisply coming to closure; and aligning your entire organization behind the decision you make.

In this new edition, Roberto presents new cases from Google, Ford, and Intuit, and expands coverage to more deeply illuminate his decision-making approach. Offering both positive and negative examples, he presents a well rounded view of how to determine when ‘yes’ means ‘yes’, when it doesn’t, and what to do when it doesn’t. Throughout, Roberto demonstrates why “good process entails the astute management of the social, political and emotional aspects of decision making” — in other words, why effective leaders are well served by carefully “deciding how to decide.” You’ll learn how to:

Test and probe what your team really believes, and get the truth and candor you really need
Encourage constructive objections — and keep them constructive
Improve team management, mitigate risk, identify opportunities, and promote integrity
Build stronger commitment amongst the people who’ll implement your decisions

Wealth Without a Job: The Entrepreneur’s Guide to Freedom and Security beyond the 9 to 5 Lifestyle(pdf free download)

This is a book about know-how.
If you are like most people, you have probably heard plenty of instructions. Your boss, your spouse and family members, church leaders, the advertising media, the government, and a wide variety of financial advisors continuously offer advice. A common characteristic of this advice is that it tells you what to do.
This book is different. It is our firm conviction that knowing how to do anything is the essential element. If you only know what to do but not how to do it, then you are left with trial and error as a method for accomplishment. Trial and error greatly increases the risk of doing anything new to the degree that many people accept the limitations of the status quo rather than risking the action to get the changes they want.
Entrepreneurship is not taught in the government-dominated education system or in private schools, either. For this reason, most entrepreneurs learn through baptism by fire—a method that can be both expensive and time-consuming. We don’t presume to know the exact business that is best for you. Instead, we will show you how to discover your true purpose so that you can choose a business that expresses your own values and calls forth your passion.
The difference in this book is that you learn how to do things from the inside out—not just what to do. We refer to this as the real interior decoration. We decorate our homes and our bodies in ways that
1

please us. Why not decorate your mind (your internal reality) in ways that please you? In ways that move you ahead, in ways that make your work more meaningful than merely making money, in ways that bring forth personal resources that you may not be aware of at this point?
We go beyond materialism in this book. Money can’t buy happiness. The paradox is that poverty surely produces unhappiness, anxiety, and dissatisfaction.
But we cover more than your personal psychology and mind-set. After reading this book, you will understand the fundamental structural changes that have occurred in the economy that have destroyed the once-common expectation that working for someone else offers the possibility of improving your standard of living and gaining financial security.
Earning the income you want from work you love: yes, that’s what you’ll learn to do in this book. Although it may seem a distant dream to you now, you will learn how to identify and then prosper at work that is an expression of your true purpose.
We have taught courses about earning the income you want from work you love in many parts of the world for quite some time. From this experience, we can anticipate some of the hesitations that you may have in using this material. Your mind may be saying something like “I never thought of myself as an entrepreneur or a business owner, so aren’t I just lying to myself by using this book?” This is an important question. Entrepreneurship is natural and instinctive. Most kids do not have to be told about earning money, and many spontaneously open lemonade stands. What you are really doing by using this material is returning to your instinctive method of earning an income. We know it is a lie that you must rely on a single source or a job for income. It is a big mistake to leave the decision of how much you are worth to a corporate or institutional bureaucracy. Most jobholders do not think about it this way, but in today’s job market, you are leaving even the decision of whether you get paid to your employer.

The Mind of the Buyer-A Psychology of Selling(pdf free download)

“One of the most interesting and informative books dealing with the psychology of selling that I have read.” – Administration: The Journal of Business
“Cannot fail to give the practical salesman a clearer insight into the psychology on which his profession is based.” -The Magazine of Wall Street

Any seller who wishes to become successful must study the mind of the buyer, and Professor Harry Dexter Kitson’s 1922 book “The Mind of the Buyer” was written for everyone who is engaged in influencing men to buy. The scientific aspects of selling from the standpoint of the psychologist engaged in analysis of the underlying principles of action in the buyer’s mind are carefully laid down by Professor Kitson of Indiana University. His book is intended for the progressive sales correspondent, advertiser and salesman, who is interested more, now, in underlying laws than in the practical technique peculiar to his own field.

He treats psychology, not as the study of mysticism but as “the science which aims to describe and explain the conduct of living creatures.” He clearly shows the advantage of this science when backed by evidence from statistical studies, laboratory experiments, and historical research over the rule of thumb of some businessman.

The modern ideals of salesmanship are not neglected. “In the previous period it was customary to give the buyer as little as possible for his money. In the modern period the ideal is to give as much as possible.”

“Mere bald, brutal repetition goes far in attracting attention,” he says. “One explanation for this is the assertion by some psychologists that man is innately credulous, that he is inclined to accent as true every statement he hears. In the course of experience, however, the adult person develops inhibitions which make him sophisticated and resistant. To overcome this resistance requires considerable battering. Repetition also influences memory. “State the new in terms of the old.

The seller should study images and use only those which have pleasant associations. Though confidence is usually regarded as an intangible asset—it has a real existence; and its value may be reckoned in dollars and cents.

“Concentrate the attention of the buyer upon the one suggested idea. Do not merely endeavor to keep out of his mind any distracting ideas but go further and divert his attention from even his own mental processes. Keep him from being introspective. He should be oblivious to the fact that he is being suggested to.”

“The Mind of the Buyer,” will surely prove to be a valuable manual for all advertisers, buyers, and sellers.

About the author:

Harry Dexter Kitson, A.B., A.M., Ph.D., (1886 —1959) was a professor of Psychology in the Indiana University. He was a charter member of the American Psychological Association and a pioneer in the field of vocational guidance.

Other works by Kitson include:

“How to Use Your Mind,”
“The Scientific Study of the College Student,”
“The Psychology of Vocational Adjustment.”
