New York Times Best-Selling Author Introduces Bank on Yourself Nation

Author and financial security expert, Pamela Yellen introduces the Bank on Yourself Nation.

Online PR News – 18-November-2010 – – Santa Fe, New Mexico — What started in 2002 as a quest to educate Americans and help them achieve financial security and peace of mind using the Bank on Yourself system, Pamela Yellen came to uncover an all-American treasure more exquisite than she ever imagined.

A financial security expert and the New York Times best-selling author of Bank on Yourself, Yellen was, at first, concentrated on helping people reach their savings and retirement planning goals and objectives using, as she describes, “a seldom-trumpeted, but proven variety of whole life insurance.” After extensive research, Yellen created a system that would permit almost anyone – rich and poor, young and old – to wean themselves from dependence on banks, credit cards, auto leases, mortgage companies and the risks and volatility of the stock and real estate markets and traditional retirement plans.

“People could sleep well at night knowing that their savings were growing – safely and predictably – even when the markets tumbled,” Yellen says.

Soon, the American public began to come around to Yellen’s way of thinking — or at least that’s what she believed at the time. People from all walks of life made initial inquiries, read up on Bank On Yourself materials, met with the specially trained advisers and then made the choice to bank on themselves.

“Clients became our most potent marketing tool, as they began sharing the Bank On Yourself concept with their family, friends, neighbors and colleagues, as well as increasing their own commitment to this proven savings and money management philosophy,” Yellen adds. “And I’ll admit, I was pretty pleased with myself.”

Soon Yellen came to realize, faced with overwhelming evidence accumulated by serving hundreds of thousands of Bank On Yourself clients, that Bank On Yourself has been and remains viable solely because of the strength of her "clients’ own character – their values, their vision, their intuition, their choice of lifestyles.”

“Like the European explorers who credited themselves with discovering the 'New World,' I thought I had discovered the Bank On Yourself Nation,” Yellen says. “But in fact, it was a thriving realm long before my arrival on the scene.”

For others like herself who have been slow to detect the presence of the Bank On Yourself Nation, Yellen is proud to introduce it and declare her membership in this “unheralded, unincorporated community of fellow citizens whose day-to-day life values and actions – not solely their saving and investment strategies – define and give soul to the Bank On Yourself philosophy and all that it has produced.”
