Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
When it comes to money, this is a classic. Originally released in 1937 this book has stood the test of time and for good reasons. It is claimed to have made more millionaires than any other book and for any woman dreaming of amassing enormous wealth it is a must-read.
Napoleon Hill spent 25 years studying the richest men of the time, which included Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, John Rockefeller and Alexander Graham Bell. Through his research, he identified a 13 step formula to creating riches, which Think and Grow Rich explains step by step.
As you may guess from the title thinking and the mind play a key role in the book. In fact, the first step to riches is desire. Napoleon believes that “all achievement…must begin, with an intense, burning desire for something definite.” So if money is the achievement you are going for you will need decide on a definite amount and the create a burning desire within you.
This book can be slightly difficult to read at times and is very male focused, but definitely worth the read.
The Millionaire Fastlane by MJ DeMarco
If you want to create money sooner rather than later than The Millionaire Fastlane is a great book for you.
MJ DeMarco believes there are approaches to building wealth: the sidewalk, the slowlane and the fastlane. People on the sidewalk never become wealthy, people in the slowlane will be wealthy in retirement and people in the fastlane will be able to achieve wealth within 10 years. MJ is passionate about being able to create wealth whilst you are young enough to still enjoy it.
This book is particularly good because it provides multiple ways to judge whether you are heading off on the right path. So often you are advised that in order to become wealthy you need to start a business. The thing is, not all businesses are created equally when it comes to creating wealth and this book provides a great framework to be able to analyze your business with.
