Widely recommended, “The Memo,” which debuted as the #1 new release in budgeting and money management on Amazon in September, outlines the rules that lay the foundation for attaining financial freedom—from achieving basic financial literacy to investing in positive relationships and approaching wealth with a completely new attitude. It is a hard-hitting collection of financial advice and wisdom from one of America’s leading entrepreneurs who wants to restore readers’ “silver rights,” giving them the ability to succeed and prosper no matter what roadblocks society puts in their way.
“True power in this world comes from economic independence,” says Bryant, who served as an advisor to the last three sitting U.S. presidents and is responsible for financial literacy becoming the policy of the U.S. federal government. “This tour will help highlight and spread the rules outlined in the book to those who need it most. I’m honored to be featured at this event in my adopted hometown.”
Some Delivering the Memo Master Class Book Tour events are structured to include key leaders in conversation with Bryant on the rules of financial empowerment and independence. The first tour stop was a discussion and book signing hosted by Bill Rogers, chairman and CEO of SunTrust Bank. On Nov. 12, Bryant and Chelsea Clinton, bestselling author and vice chair of The Clinton Foundation, engaged in impactful dialogue around inclusion and financial liberation at 92nd Street Y in New York City. Upcoming stops through the end of year include events with Jim Clifton, chairman and CEO, Gallup, Inc.; Jeff Schmid, chairman and CEO, Mutual of Omaha Bank; and Arianna Huffington, founder and CEO, Thrive Global.
The Memo: Five Rules for Your Economic Liberation is available for purchase on amazon.com and through several local booksellers. For more information on book tour events, visit johnhopebryant.com, or contact Latoya McKnight at 404.941.2919.
