I read the combo of the millionaire next door, and rich dad poor dad, while I was still in college in the early 90’s and it changed my life.
The most important things I learned from them was to UN-LEARN what I thought I “knew” about wealth, who was wealthy, how they got wealthy, how the wealthy lived, ect.
Everything I “thought” I knew, was wrong in that regards.
The friend told her, the people who "looked" the most successful, with multiple new cars, the nicest clothes, and so forth -- were the ones begging for a few more days grace to pay their bills every month.
The ones who drove older cars and clothes, and weren't flashy, often had surprising amounts of wealth: because they weren't spending it.
MOST people can not get rich....its just a fact....
I find it interesting that the Rich dad guy and Ramsey really started doing well ONLY after they started selling their books....IIRC....
