    "I used to think that people who were good with money were like Wizards. And I do mean Wizard like Gandalf or Mickey's Sorcerer. They need money and alacazam, poof they got money. Well I'm here to you that is all wrong. After reading No One Can Escape the 4 Laws by Eloy Rodrigo Colombo, rich people don't have magic, they have a toolbelt of financial knowledge that allows them to anticipate what to do with their money. I have a feeling that I'll be sending Mr. Colombo a big fat check one day in appreciation after I make my first million. "
