I recently finished ready The Surprise Millionaires by Keith McDowell. A great read indeed. It is packed with amazing stories of ordinary people who passed along extraordinary wealth. Keith did a wonderful job of including stories from all over the country that date back to the beginning of the 20th century. You can purchase the Kindle version of the book for just 99 cents! You can also follow his blog here: https://thesurprisemillionaires.com/
Here are my 3 main takeaways from his book:
- No matter your income level, everyone and I repeat everyone has the opportunity to create wealth over $1,000,000.
- Most if not all of these individuals valued relationships over possessions and money. It was who they could impact with their wealth that was much more important than the amount of earthly items they could collect.
- Every single one of the stories ends with a person(s) creating a lasting legacy in their community. When your time on earth is finished what do you want to be remembered for? I’m sure the people in these stories asked themselves this question, and the legacies they created was beyond comprehension.
