Charlie "Tremendous" Jones: The Books You Read

The People You Meet, The Books you Read, The Experiences You Have

January 7, 7 min read. The late humorist and master of salesmanship, Charlie "Tremendous" Jones, said one of my favorite quotes of all time: "You are the same today that you are going to be in five years from now except for two things: the people with whom you associate and the books you read. While he didn't specify, I'm nearly certain Jones was talking about cookbooks. Reading cookbooks has changed me. Not only have they made me a better cook, learning how to do it and falling in love with the activity has impacted our household finances. Little by little, as I became a better cook, we naturally began to eat at home more.

Most of that influence came through reading their works, but it also felt like I had met them by the time I had read several things from them. I want to introduce you to a few people that I think you should meet. I think hearing what they have to share will change who you are five years from now. Check out feedly to get started.

The People I’ve Met in the Past 5 Years

By Stephen Tweed. I was there to deliver the Commencement Address for the Spring Commencement. What an amazing experience standing on that platform in front of thousands of students, parents, and family members to share a few words that would send the graduates off to the next phase of their careers and their lives.

This event started a four year journey of determination to build up a better financial position for myself. If I would have been one of those three people let go, I would have faced some series issues. My cash would have lasted me a month at most. I imagined the desperation I would have felt in that possibility. Jones really figured things out and identified a truth here and take a dive into this using my own example:. And the list goes on. The Total Money Makeover shaped my attitudes on debt.
