There’s something to be said for listening to people who have “been there, done that.” If you want to learn what it takes to be a great scientist, you read the works of great scientists, right? You study up on what Albert Einstein, Louis Pasteur, and Newton had to say. If you want to learn what it takes to be a great parent, you spend time sitting and talking with your parents, grandparents, and those around you that you’ve personally watched raise their children well.

Why can’t we apply the same principle to money? If we want to learn how to live your life in a world filled with money, why not look at what those who had a heck of a lot of it to see what they had to say about the subject?
