What’s up, money lovers! If you’ve ever wanted to be a millionaire, now’s your chance to learn all the secrets ;) Up for grabs this week is “The Millionaire Next Door” book and its companion “The Millionaire Mind” by Thomas J. Stanley, Ph.D.
That’s TWO MILLION DOLLARS worth of books right there – get excited!!
Haha… Seriously though, they’re awesome books and it’s no surprise they tend to land on all the “best money books” lists. Especially “The Millionaire Next Door” which kicked off our own Book Series here on the site last month (and is my personal all-time favorite).
Here’s a clip from it:
This is THE book to help us understand how real people become millionaires, to debunk the myth that millionaires are either lucky or inherit their wealth, and to find practical advice on how we too can succeed with money. Stanley’s findings revolve around three main themes: live below your means, choose a partner with similar values, focus time and energy on wealth accumulation.
We haven’t pushed out our “Millionaire Mind” review yet, but here’s a clip from the bio on Amazon to wet your whistle:
The Millionaire Mind targets a population of millionaires who have accumulated substantial wealth and live in ways that openly demonstrate their affluence. Exploring the ideas, beliefs, and behaviors that enabled these millionaires to build and maintain their fortunes, Dr. Stanley provides a fascinating look at who America’s financial elite are and how they got there.
They’re awesome books, and would look even more awesome on your bookshelves :)
Tell us if you think YOUR neighbors are millionaires or not – and why (that’s the juicy part!) – and we’ll select one winner by this time next week. Feel free to go anonymously so you can serve up the dirt :)
I’ll play along too. I think my neighbor *is* a millionaire because he just scooped up a half a million dollar place as if it was nothing, and from what I’ve gathered so far he’s a pretty popular published author in his circles. He’s also single (and older) with no kids, and I don’t know anyone like that that would pick up a 5 bedroom place just for himself? Doesn’t that sound like what a rich person would do? (Or maybe I need to re-read these books? :)).
Either way, your turn! Tell us what you think of your neighbor(s), and let’s see if your guesses are correct… Because next you’re going to ask them if they are a millionaire or not, right? RIGHT???
UPDATE: Congrats to Mrs. Picky Pincher for winning! Was fun reading everyone’s responses :)
