Recently retired business executive and multimillionaire Vercie Lark wants to help others ‘Make It Rain’

The author offers a no-nonsense approach to helping readers accumulate wealth in a new self-help book

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — According to author Vercie Lark, one thing is clear: Too many hardworking Americans are struggling to make ends meet and accumulate enough money to retire with financial stability. In his new self-help book “Make It Rain: Increase Your Wealth & Financial Security” (published by Balboa Press), Lark offers readers a practical, easy-to-use guide to help people make informed decisions and accumulate more wealth to support their long-term financial needs.

Lark draws from his own experience to provide insights and examples demonstrating how effective solutions can be. From advice on setting goals to lessons on how to make wise investment decisions, “Make It Rain” features a plethora of tips to help readers avoid financial ruin in their own pursuit of the American dream.

“Millions of low, middle, and upper-middle-income Americans are working hard each day but they are not savvy about investing or have fear of investing,” says Lark. “Learning how to successfully manage their money and invest wisely to build wealth is the best way to enable more Americans to lead better lives, provide better care for their family, and hopefully share some of their wealth with others so that we improve the overall living conditions for people throughout our country.”
