My Road To Wealth: Learn About Obtaining Wealth Through The Story Of A Young Self Made Multimillionaire by Todd Babbitt
I bought this book a while back, and never got around to reading it (though I must have started reading it at some point, as I'd taken notes on the earlier pages! But I had no memory of it...) When I was sorting out my books to see what books should go back onto the bookshelf, this book screamed "read me!" and so I did.
I wish I'd read this earlier! The author is about 5 years older than me and seemed to have accomplished much more! This was a very fast read - not a how-to book, but rather, just the author's story on what he did to become wealthy. He was very willing to share what he did - not to the minute details but enough to get you thinking. Now, while he was a bit lucky and was investing in real estate at the right time, he worked hard to get to where he was - he did not just sit there and money did not just appear out of nowhere. He researched, he learned, he took risk, and he acted. He also was clear that real estate was not the only way to wealth - it just happened to be something he was interested in.
He was an avid reader - and he included a list of some of the best books he read, so I appreciated that. In fact, I'd bought a couple of the books he recommended, and would prob buy the rest once I read some of my other books. He had a point there - for a small amount of money (for a book), you got to learn so much from other successful people, isn't that a great investment?! Now again, none of these books are quick-get-me-rich books (those are called scams), but they'd be good guides to help us find our own path.
He said that many people kept wondering what they'd do if they have money, and yet never did anything much to act on getting rich. Yes, definitely guilty of that.
