I am currently doing a new ebook and would appreciate your input. It's called 7 Common Money Mistakes - And How To Avoid Them.
What I am looking for is a graphic which would most appeal to you directly when looking at the cover to associate with it being something you may have encountered or associate as a personal mistake, and would appeal immediately to you wanting to read it. Or what you consider to be a mistake.

Your ideas and thoughts below will be appreciated or PM me direct. Thanks. ... See MoreSee Less
