Yesterday while at the library I discovered a few new books on saving money. I will be reviewing them over the next few days. Two of them are quick reads that I was able to get through in a few hours yesterday.
The first one is 365 Ways to Become a Millionaire, Without Being Born One by Brian Koslow.
Brian Koslow shares the principles that put him on the road to success. The chapters and one tip from each include:
Integrity, The most powerful thing to believe in is yourself and your own ambitions.
Relationships, Remember above all else that no business, power, position, wealth, or fame is a substitute for your family.
Credibility, Make a list of at least three things that are unique about you, your services and/or your products. Communicate these more frequently, and your value will go up. So will your sales.
Reputation, The only way to keep a good reputation is to continuously earn it.
Negotiation, Most decisions in a negotiation are made emotionally and rationalized later.
Listening, You will always learn more by listening than by speaking.
Entrepreneurialism, Forget the lottery. Bet on yourself instead.
Money, The very first step to building wealth is to spend less than you make.
Productivity, To increase your personal productivity, make a list of all your strengths. Maximize your actions that use these strengths, and delegate your weaknesses to someone for whom they are strengths.
Time, Always delegate activities that require less expertise than you have. This will free up your time to notice and take action on opportunities that otherwise may pass you by.
Confrontation, Your ability to responsibly confront people is one of the key ingredients to getting ahead.
and Leadership, The common denominator of all effective leaders is self-discipline.
