Just like when Harry didn’t open his letter to Hogwarts, we’re a little backed up here at the Money Wizard headquarters.

Let me take a wild guess: You use Amazon. In fact, you’re probably one of the 64 percent of US households with Amazon Prime. If my less than impressive odds betting is correct, then let me take a bigger leap of faith. You probably wouldn’t mind some free Amazon gift cards! I know I would!

So if you’re going to […] The post The 30 for 30 Rule: Become a Millionaire with Just $30 a Day ...
