Financial Planning, Earl and Tiger

Financial Planning, Earl and Tiger

Hi! Earl Woods is gone, but his legacy roars on. What legacy do you plan to leave your children?

You probably already know that Tiger Woods has just lost his father to cancer. Sports Illustrated has a fabulous article on Earl Woods' life; I recommend you read it: - Golf - Tiger Woods' dad, Earl, dies after battle with cancer - Wednesday May 3, 2006 5:36PM:

CYPRESS, Calif. (AP) -- Earl Woods, who was more determined to raise a good son than a great golfer and became the architect and driving force behind Tiger Woods' phenomenal career..."

When you read that well-crafted article, you'll get a sense of the kind of man Earl was and the depth of his passionate belief that he could nurture a child to become a genuine world-beater.

If you have children, chances are very high that you too have such a great desire.

Chances are low, however, that the route your kids will take will match that of Tiger Woods!

That's why it is wise to harness the power of financial planning early in the life of your family to try and stack the odds in favour of your kids receiving the right sort of breaks.

The key you want to give each of your children is education. And that comes with a price tag. But if you start early and apply sound principles of financial planning, chances are good that you will succeed. If you think you could benefit from it, you're welcome to visit my article archive of simple ways to do financial planning.

Alternatively, if you are eager for more direct help in the realm of life planning (which in my book encompasses financial planning, goal-setting and time management), AND you are 100% serious about paying the price and doing the work, drop me an email at with 'Rajen, please tell me about your new consulting module' in your subject header.

Warmest regards,


Rajen Devadason is CEO of RD Book Projects and its sister company RD WealthCreation Sdn Bhd. He lives in sunny, peaceful Malaysia with his gorgeous wife Rachel. He's a Malaysian Securities Commission-licensed financial planner, a life planning consultant, a professional speaker and a serial author... which probably explains why he's so exhausted! Some of his books are available here, and, if you're interested, here are some quotations he reckons are accurate, bold or cool.
