It’s my birthday — Will you do me a favor?

I’m turning 30 tomorrow.
My Indian mom is freaking out about me getting married, telling me it’s time to find a girl. I’ve been using our increasingly awkward conversations as a chance to test new scripts:
- “It’s a big decision”
- “I’m focused on my career” (winning script)
This is testing at the very highest levels — against an immigrant mother with a singular, focused goal.
Anyway, aside from parrying my mom’s disastrously effective ambushes, today is one of my favorite days. I hardly ever ask you for anything, but today I want to ask for a favor.
Will you leave a comment telling me one thing that IWT has helped you do?

This is what makes writing I Will Teach You To Be Rich worth it.
All I ask is that you be specific — include actual numbers. Share your story. There’s nothing like seeing what other people have done to change their lives.
Thanks in advance — and here’s to the best year yet.
