Book: The Rich and How they got that Way

If your calling is being an entrepreneur, this is a “must-read” book! The author painted each word, like a puzzle describing the details of how wealth was created from Genghis Khan and finishing with Bill Gates.

I realized that not much has changed over the centuries. There are still outstanding individuals who have amassed great riches and achieved this feat in a variety of ways.

The one concept that really stood out was an excerpt in the book: “The unexpected is gradually phased out, except for the occasional drought or hurricane. But men who live daintily, wrote Alexis de Tocqueville in the nineteenth century, soon forget the charms of action and overemphasize its risk, finding it every harder to rouse themselves from smothering ease.”

In other words, don’t get too comfortable with comfort.
