How To Avoid H.E.N.R.Y. Syndrome®:
Financial Strategies To Own Your Future

By Gideon Drucker, CFP®


If you’re a young professional with your peak earning years ahead of you, and you think you'll start saving for your future "soon", it’s likely you’re a H.E.N.R.Y. 

What's a H.E.N.R.Y.? High Earner, Not Rich Yet.

If you don't have a financial life plan, our experience tells us that you’re going to stay one, forever. Yikes.  

How to Avoid H.E.N.R.Y. Syndrome® was written to help young, prospering professionals find their financial footing.  Gideon Drucker's stories and musings are all about what he has learned both intentionally on the job as a Certified Financial Planner and unavoidably growing up in family of financial professionals. Like a friend who has seen it all, from watching his dad prepare hundreds of clients to live happily in retirement to helping a 27 year old pay off their student loans and buy their first home, Gideon will take you behind the scenes of what it takes to own your financial future and become the H.E.R.B. you were destined to be.   

Still not sure if this book is for you? Read on. 

You may be a suffering from H.E.N.R.Y. Syndrome® if:

  • You are a hardworking, gainfully employed young professional
  • You are making what your parent's would consider "good money" and yet, you don't have much to show for it
  • You share a Netflix account with your parent's and you are still on the "Family Phone Plan"
  • When your boss asked if you had any interest in a "pension" you thought he was offering you a pent-house/mansion combination deal
  • You're pretty sure you have money in an old 401(k) but have no earthly idea as to where or how to locate it...

How the book will help you:

  • Learn how much to save.. and strategies on how to save.
  • Create a plan… to avoid working until 70.
  • Understand how your 401(k) works...traditional or ROTH, which is better?
  • Realize the impact of investor behavior
  • Take actionable steps today…to build wealth for the future.

Ready to start the book? Your future self can't afford not to.
