"The free bird leaps

on the back of the wind

and floats downstream

till the current ends

and dips his wings

in the orange sun rays

and dares to claim the sky."

~ Maya Angelou’s ‘The Caged Bird’

May you discover within the pages of this book the invigorating, hope-filled freedom of the free bird. May you soar from any cages that hold you back and dare to boldly claim your financial freedom. And may the freedom you find grant you the opportunity to live, to dream, and to give.
