Now there's more. In an all-new book of stories of real people who have emerged from humble beginnings, the authors-two experienced financial journalists-share their expert analysis and commentary with the same large dose of motivation. "If they can do it, so can you," they encourage readers.
These are 14 stories of ordinary people and what they have done to amass extraordinary wealth. Some familiar names include B.B. King, Venus and Serena Williams, and Gloria and Emilio Estefan. Others maintain a lower profile, out of the limelight, and are very much like everyday people readers can relate to.
Whether famous or just quietly wealthy, these individuals have been selected because: *They started with nothing. *They earned their wealth. *Their stories are inspiring-and believable.
Wise to the ways of wealth, Liberman and Lavine share the lessons so readers can make the most of opportunities. From each profile, they present specific practical strategies used to obtain and maintain wealth. They also identify proven methods for avoiding the pitfalls and potential downside of wealth.
