Billionaires Advice After Losing My Fortune

There’s an old saying among the rich: “it’s easier to live without money if you’ve never had it.” I think that’s true. Financial independence makes for a cushy, comfortable life, and it’s not easy to re-enter the rat race. No matter, that’s what I was forced to do many years ago after earning a small fortune, and I was disheartened and disappointed in myself. After all, I had interviewed hundreds of the world’s wealthiest self-made millionaires and billionaires, and I was the beneficiary of their collective financial wisdom. I employed it and it worked, but after a couple of poor judgement

Where My Billionaire Clients Are Investing Their Money

After decades of interviewing over 1,300 of the world’s wealthiest people, I’ve heard every type of investing strategy you can imagine. Everyone seems to have their own system, and few agree on everything. That said, we’re in a special time in history, where a single technology is impacting nearly every sector, and many experts agree that it’s still in its infancy. I’ve spent the past several months talking to dozens of my wealthiest clients and contacts around the world, and in my 39 years of interviews, I’ve never heard such consensus on an investment strategy. This video is a quick glimpse

Building World-Class Wealth

When you’ve been indoctrinated into a consumption-based mindset by slick advertisers, it’s difficult to become wealthy. No matter how much money you earn, there’s never enough left to save and invest. I further define wealthy as more money than you need, affording you the opportunity to do what you want, when you want, with whom you want, for as long as you want, without ever having to answer to anyone else for the rest of your life. Sadly, only a tiny percentage of people will ever experience this level of financial freedom, partially due to the never-ending barrage of social and

The Most Misunderstood Strategy in Performance Psychology

The field of Performance Psychology has come a long way since its inception in the 1970’s. As a national junior tennis player, I was involved in this process from the beginning. It had an immediate impact on my performance, and gave me a level of peace of mind off the court that I had never experienced before. Over the past 50 years, the field has evolved and is widely considered a standard aspect of modern-day athletic training in the world of Olympic and Professional Sports. Big business has been slower to adopt this mental toughness/high performance training, but some of the

Do You Think Like a Millionaire?

As cheesy as this question might sound, it shouldn’t be discounted. Non-linear, millionaire thinking is a serious process that creates significant results. And it’s not just about money; it’s about getting what you want out of life in an expedited fashion. In 2010, I wrote a book called How Rich People Think, which was based on over 1,000 interviews with self-made millionaires and billionaires conducted face-to-face since 1984. The concepts in this book serve as a roadmap to success. These ideas aren’t taught in school. To the contrary, they are often discredited among academics who don’t understand them. The proof is

I did over 100 TV interviews during this media run, and it was quite contentious.

How Rich People Think

When I wrote my book, How Rich People Think, I didn’t know how much controversey it would cause. Rich celebrities like Wynonna Judd, Kathie Lee Gifford and John Tesh LOVED it, while others, such as LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman, HATED it. The subject of money is emotional for many people. In this video I discuss the first chapter, which wound a lot of people up. #personaldevelopment #mentaltoughness

Wealth Reduces Suffering

The International Personal Development Association is dedicated to reducing human suffering around the world. One of the tools that works is wealth. In the first world, lack of money is the most common form of stress and suffering. It causes people to make short term, poor decisions. It contributes to depression, divorce and suicide. And yet just a little increase in a family’s wealth can substantially reduce these negative outcomes. This is one of the topics we’ll be exploring in the association. Watch this video to get started on this subject, and if you’ve already solved your money issues, teach these

Self-Made Millionaire’s Secret

After interviewing self-made millionaires for 38 years, the primary question I get from audiences and the media is “how do they do it? How does an average person with an average IQ and education create a fortune from nothing? It’s obviously a multifaceted answer, but they all seem to begin with the same strategy. Most of these people agree that their success is mainly an inside job, or at least that’s where it begins. But where? In other words, where does one start down this path? The good news is that it’s uncomplicated, and in this short video, I’ll reveal the
