Book Review!

Lately I have been on the hunt for good reading material that can expand my knowledge while still being easy to read.  I don’t want to read a 400 page novel and I need it to be short enough to finish in two or three sittings, while still providing great information.  Sounds simple enough right?
  The book that I read this week after a recommendation from Rock Star Real Estate was “The Top 10 Distinctions Between Millionaires and the Middle Class” by Keith Cameron Smith.

Smith has several other books that are similarly laid out and easy to get through quickly, while still providing great information!

To sum up, here are the Top 10 distinctions that he lists:

1.     Millionaires think long-term. The middle class thinks short-term.
2.     Millionaires talk about ideas. The middle class talks about things and other people.
3.     Millionaires embrace change. The middle class is threatened by change.
4.     Millionaires take calculated risks. The middle class is afraid to take risks.
5.     Millionaires continually learn and grow. The middle class thinks learning ended with school.
6.     Millionaires work for profits. The middle class works for wages.
7.     Millionaires believe they must be generous. The middle class believes it can’t afford to give.
8.     Millionaires have multiple sources of income. The middle class has only one or two.
9.     Millionaires focus on increasing their net worth. The middle class focuses on increasing their paychecks.
10.    Millionaires ask themselves empowering questions. The middle class asks themselves dis-empowering questions.

I was going to elaborate on each one separately, however I found a blog that already did it for me….thanks Leroy! J
