Synopsis: A unique approach to personal finance that tackles money like a jiu-jitsu fighter would tackle an opponent

In martial arts and personal finance, fundamentals are important. But while failing in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu may be disappointing, it's nothing compared to failing to build wealth and creating a better future for your family.

Nobody understands this better than Scott Ford, a top-ranked financial advisor and Jiu-Jitsu enthusiast. Now, in Financial Jiu-Jitsu, he shows you how to overcome your emotions and state of mind to excel at your investing endeavors. Along the way, Ford teaches you fundamental skills such as automating your savings and investments, the importance of paying yourself first, and managing credit wisely.

  • Compares the patience and practice of the martial arts, specifically Jiu-Jitsu, to investing
  • Offers an approach to adapting to financial change as you move through life, while maintaining the same guiding principles
  • Author Scott Ford is ranked in the top one percent of all financial advisors

The guiding principles in this book are the foundation of your financial fight plan and the keys to reaching your financial dreams. No matter what punches the market or the economy throws at you, if you follow these principles you'll always react well in the face of adversity.

From the Inside Flap:

Trading either commodities or foreign currencies might sound exciting. But if you haven't mastered even the basics of money managementóestablishing an emergency fund, maintaining a budget, and setting money aside for your children's education and your retirementócan you honestly say you're on the path to perfecting the art of personal finance?

In Financial Jiu-Jitsu: A Fighter's Guide to Conquering Your Finances, financial advisor and Jiu-Jitsu enthusiast Scott Ford shows how mastering your financesólike mastering a martial artóhas nothing to do with perfecting thousands of exotic, technically challenging moves. Rather, mastery is as simple as performing a handful of basic moves thousands of times. These basic financial moves include:

  • Prepare to Win: Paying yourself first, maintaining a cash safety net, managing credit wisely, and never procrastinating
  • Balance and Base: Determining your specific financial goals, and developing a vision for your life
  • Closing the Gap: Overcoming your fear of the unknown by creating a personal balance sheet and using it to analyze your current financial situation
  • The Power of Respect: Choosing and working with a financial advisor
  • Timing: Taking advantage of tax-deferred investments, maxing out 401(k) contributions, and contributing to IRAs
  • Gain Control: The basics of an estate plan, living trust, pourover will, and power of attorney
  • Position Before Submission: Protecting yourself with insurance
  • Attitude: Planning for your retirement

Learning Jiu-Jitsu taught Scott Ford to face both personal and professional challenges head onóto anticipate problems, to be open to new ideas, and to seize opportunities. Now, in Financial Jiu-Jitsu, he teaches you how to use the guiding principles of finance to build a solid financial foundation that can then be leveraged to help you achieve your long-term financial goals, while building lasting wealth for you and your family.

You can't plan for everything life and the economy might throw at you. But after reading Financial Jiu-Jitsu, you'll be prepared for almost anything.
