  • Investing Just Got A Little Easier

    Today I am pleased to announce the launch of a paperback version of my award-winning book, The Journey To Wealth, which is now available on Amazon and priced at 63% less than the hardcover edition.

    The old rules of investing simply no longer work. In today’s uncertain times it’s no wonder that nearly 80% of Americans do not invest. Yet people at all income levels can transform their lives with a basic understanding of financial markets and a solid, stress-free investment strategy. 

    The Journey To Wealth distills the jargon of financial markets and equips readers with the tools they need to achieve financial independence. It is my hope that this new edition will be more accessible to the millions of Americans who are not currently investing but would like to start. It is far better to have a prosperous society than a struggling one, which is why I am passionate about this opportunity to share my tried and tested strategies with a wider audience.

    Success as an investor in today’s financial markets often requires going against much of Wall Street’s so-called “wisdom.” My book helps readers develop a personalized wealth plan tailored to their particular lifestyle, goals, and family circumstances. Too many investors fall prey to the same catastrophic mistakes. Such pitfalls can easily be avoided with my SMART investing philosophy, which includes:

    • Knowing about different types of investment instruments and understanding their pros and cons
    • Understanding the history of financial markets
    • Recognizing and taking advantage of market patterns and cycles
    • Learning how to maximize returns while managing risks

    In short, my book demystifies the process of investing and empowers readers to make wise investment decisions. Anyone can discover that investing the right way will help you achieve financial freedom. Here’s to your financial future!

    The Journey to Wealth strikes a winning combination: authoritative information written by a polished professional presented in a highly digestible, extremely attractive, high-quality package. — Barry Silverstein, Foreword Reviews

  • Radio Interview on “People of Distinction” with Al Cole

    I was recently interviewed about my book, The Journey To Wealth, with nationally syndicated talk show host Al Cole.  His show, People of Distinction, is  featured nationally w/CBS RADIO, BBC & NPR on the #1 iTunes radio network.

    Al and I had a great discussion on investing in the world today, the fact that many people aren’t taking part in the stock market and why they should start.  Here is the replay:

  • The Reviews Are In…

    *****

    There are many books that flood the investing category annually; simply differentiating a title is a major challenge. The Journey to Wealth strikes a winning combination: authoritative information written by a polished professional presented in a highly digestible, extremely attractive, high-quality package. This in itself makes The Journey to Wealth worthy of consideration as a guide to wise investing. –Barry Silverstein, Foreword Reviews

    *****

    From preferred stocks and the value and limitations of bonds to diversification processes, there is no better book on the market suitable not just for explaining investment processes, but for understanding the psychology of creating and sticking to a flexible strategy that works not by formula, but by concrete knowledge and market analytics. Sound complex? Not under James E. Demmert’s hand: he makes The Journey to Wealth accessible to a wide audience, from savvy investors to novices alike, and gives it a straightforward, jargon-free treatment that makes it an informative pleasure to read. — Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review

    *****

    [A] methodical and well-organized narrative… Throughout this detailed and instructive book, Demmert crystallizes his advice into 18 principles, clearly set off in boxes for easy reference…. the narrative is generally remarkably compelling… perfect for those seeking a more in-depth understanding of global financial forces and practical investment choices and strategies. — Kirkus Review

    *****

    In an investment world loaded with so many intervening variables, The Journey to Wealth is a breath of clean, fresh air. It helps the individual investor develop a long term plan for building a nest egg. Just as important, it shows you how to protect that investment during the inevitable short term troughs that occur while riding the rising wave of wealth called the Stock Market. It is a must read for every investor! — Amazon Reviewer

    *****

    An easy read, this book is perfect for people, like me, with no finance background. I now understand how money works and what’s required to reach our goals. It’s so good, I even recommended it to both of our young-adult sons. — Amazon Reviewer
