Stowers Innovations Announces Achieve Financial Independence Week October 10-16, 2004.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- How Americans Can Learn to Reverse the Current Overspending Crisis

America is a country in crisis. Our current savings rate is a measly 2.5 percent -- down significantly from the 7 percent average 30 years ago. Families in the U.S. are carrying a debt load of $9.4 trillion. And our children regularly receive low marks on personal finance surveys.

Despite this bleak reality, achieving financial independence is an attainable goal. To help Americans stop overspending and start managing their money responsibly, Stowers Innovations, Inc. introduces the first annual Achieve Financial Independence Week(TM).

Beginning Oct. 10 and lasting until Oct. 16, the week will help to:

--raise awareness of the pitfalls of spending, the dangers of debt and the diminishing value of the dollar

--equip Americans of all ages with the tools and knowledge to realize their own financial goals

--provide specific and actionable ideas on how to achieve financial independence

"Raising awareness is the first step to educating Americans about how they can achieve financial independence," says James E. Stowers, one of the country's top money managers and author of the newly updated, award-winning book, Yes, You Can... Achieve Financial Independence. "Through Achieve Financial Independence Week and the strategies detailed in my book, we provide hope and a pathway for Americans caught in the spending trap."

During Achieve Financial Independence Week(TM), Stowers Innovations is providing Americans the tools to begin the journey to financial independence with helpful tips on a variety of fiscal topics such as:

--raising financially aware kids

--affording to raise a family

--working out finances as newlyweds

--preparing for retirement

These tips and more can be found in the Achieve Financial Independence Week e-press kit at www.stowers-innovations.com/afiw_kit.asp.

To launch the first Achieve Financial Independence Week, the latest edition of Yes, You Can...Achieve Financial Independence will be available on October 20. In it, Mr. Stowers shares for the first time ever, the specific investing strategies he used to found and grow American Century Investments and become one of the nation's wealthiest men and most generous philanthropists. Yes, You Can... Achieve Financial Independence retails for $24.95 and is available by calling 1-800-234-3445 or online at www.stowers-innovations.com.
