Getting Acquainted with the Millionaire Next Door
Most people have it all wrong about how one becomes wealthy. It is seldom inheritance or advanced degrees or even intelligence that build fortunes; more often it is the result of hard work, diligent savings, and living below your means. Most of America's truly wealthy do not live in Beverly Hills or on Park Avenue—in fact, quite often they live right next door. William Danko, who spent over 30 years interviewing millionaires, provides numerous take-away examples of how sacrifice, discipline, and hard work most often result in wealth. But these tried-and-true traits so often are ignored by a society bent on obtaining a quick buck. From keynote presentations to after-dinner talks and receptions, Danko shares insights that extend the research found in The Millionaire Next Door. From his elucidating presentation, you’ll learn:
