The Secrets of the Wealthy is a book purposed to awaken the reader to the simple, foundational, immutable laws required for success that many are ignoring or unaware of because these principles are not taught in school.
“The question is,” Russo, asks ” do you see your life as a great undertaking in which you are actively involved, or do you see yourself as a spectator pushed along by the circumstances of each day? Are you ‘making it happen’, or are you ‘letting it happen’? Are you in, or out?” He further says: “Life is not a do-over experience, so why not give thought to what you truly want and have a bias toward action. If we all do that, we won’t have to look in the mirror in our golden years and say to ourselves, what the heck happened.”
Through Ray’s real-life experience and purpose-driven advice, the reader gains a greater understanding of what to embrace and what to avoid in matters of personal finance.

Meet Raymond Russo
Raymond Russo is a “Dyed in the wool Entrepreneur”, who started his first business at the age of 22. Having grown up in the Bronx, NY in a broken home, living with his mother and 4 other siblings in a small 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment, and were the sole income for the family was state-issued welfare, he learned early on what he didn’t want.
At the age of 19, he left for the west coast, Palm Springs, CA to live with his dad who had found financial success in his business years prior in New York before moving west himself. To say this was a culture shock, from the Bronx to Palm Springs, is an understatement and was a real eye-opener for him.
This is where the entrepreneurial bug started. It’s been said that success happens when preparedness and opportunity meet. Ray’s never-ending pursuit of knowledge and persistent work ethic eventually led to various enterprises in real estate as a National Franchise owner, HUD-approved correspondent lender, and eventually gravitated toward the world of financial services, eventually having a financial planning business that served 6 offices in three states.
Today Ray is a fiduciary and owner of a Registered Investment Advisory firm in Las Vegas, Nevada where he provides insurance and investment solutions to individuals, couples, and businesses, as well as tax strategies for wealthier individuals as Managing Director of Redwood Tax Specialists.
Ray’s passions in life are as a mentor and trainer to those who seek knowledge and solutions for a better life. He is also a public speaker, writer, time management expert, and creator of his upcoming blog which will feature the extensive knowledge he has amassed in the areas he loves to talk about, with a focus on financial independence in a mobile lifestyle, i.e. the ability to create an epic business and lifestyle, while traveling the world and doing so with nothing but a laptop and an internet connection.
“Misdirection” is a step-by-step playbook for CEOs, CFOs, business owners and HR executives that will help you identify and mitigate what can be the largest cause of negative operating leverage in your business.
No matter your industry, company size, or location, this book will provide the tools to help you uncover what every other consultant has ignored. These expenses, hiding in every business, are disguised as liabilities but can become a powerful asset. You can look at this book as a self defense, judo of sorts, to protect your company from unnecessarily overspending on what should be a manageable expense. Not only do we address cost but we discuss employee morale, improving company culture and how all these topics are tied together.
Many times I see companies sacrifice the important for the urgent. This causes businesses to neglect what they believe they cannot change and instead focus on what they know they can.
This blind spot on your P&L has been largely overlooked because you have been trained to overlook it. In fact, most business owners, C-suite executives, mayors, governors, and union heads have been trained to delegate this expense to non-P&L managers. This is because they’ve always thought there was no way to control this expense. In reality, they have been kept in the dark by the misaligned incentives in this multi-billion dollar industry.
Warren Buffet once famously called GM “a health and benefits company with an auto company attached.” It has also been reported that Starbucks spends more on health insurance for its employees than it does on coffee beans. For most companies, health insurance is the second or third largest expense after payroll and raw materials.
This puts you in the healthcare business! I have just one question for you—how is your healthcare business doing? If my asking that question made you feel uncomfortable, that’s ok—it’s just the Cartel’s programming taking over.
When organizations spend millions of dollars in a belief system, they try very hard to hold on to it. In this book, you will learn:
– The financial hedging strategy that will allow your company to arbitrage risk of $40,000 – $1M, down to less than $5,000. – Who is the Cartel and how they have been paid billions by ripping off millions of people and business just like yours. – Why your company unnecessarily overpays for what should be a manageable expense. – How to turn a rented liability into an asset you own. – Why healthcare supply chain price gouging causes the quality of your health plan to diminish, and what you can do about it. – How a few simple steps can increase your company’s EBITDA each and every year. – The fastest way to recapture a decade or more of losses – that you have already experienced. – Recognize the “learned helplessness” that has gradually crept into your awareness over the last 10+ years. – How price and cost are different and how we can use this to make your health plan better.
This book is a plainly written, common sense guide to why you overpay for healthcare at work and how to give your employees the best health care plan they have ever had. Doing this will give you a literal competitive edge in your market, just be sure to read this before your competitor does.
