About The Book:

When it comes to finances, there are no hail Mary passes or buzzer beater moments that will score you financial security. Like a professional athlete, you have to prepare for the worst, and hope for the best, and always give 100 percent. And if all goes according to the game plan, you’ll walk away a winner.

That’s what Certified Public Accountant and former professional basketball player Dr. John Karaffa—the tax pro for the pros—teaches his A-list clients. In Touchdown Finance: Personal Finance Tips from the Pros, Karaffa advises readers that they don’t have to have the bank account of a professional athlete in order to learn from their financial failures and success stories. In a simplistic and direct writing style, along with words of advice from athletes in the NFL, MLB, Olympians and more, Touchdown Finance serves as the ultimate personal finance playbook.

•Financial hits and misses his clients have taken—and what people with any type of salary can learn from them
•The basics of personal finance stability that can transition to smart investment choices
•Analyzing spending habits and net worth, which may resolve you to become aware about your savings and protecting your assets
•The harmful overspending habits of Americans, and the best ways to resolve them.
