One of the myths that I had about rich people before conducting my Rich Habits Study was that they were unhappy, aggressive, cut throat individuals. That was how they were portrayed to me, growing up. However, after interviewing 233 wealthy people, I was left scratching my head because, for the most part, they were among […] ...

In my Rich Habits Study, 72% of the wealthy volunteered five hours or more every month. Volunteering is all about building relationships with other successful or success-minded people. If you think about it, it makes sense. Most of the people on the board of directors of local community non-profits are the most successful people in […] ...

People who are in a position of power, hold all the cards. More often than not, those who are in a position of power are those who are supervisors, senior executives or business owners. But being in a position of power doesn’t always mean being the boss or the owner. It does mean, however, that […] ...

In my Rich Habits Study, 80% of the wealthy called certain people religiously at least once every other month, just to say hello. These were individuals the rich wanted to foster relationships with. Think millionaires, successful people, influencers, etc. In reality, this Hello Call was far more than a hello call. It was a reconnaissance […] ...

Emotions are a habit. How you react emotionally, when life throws a wrench into things, is a habit. One of the greatest traits of the self-made millionaires in my study was their ability to control negative emotions when all hell was breaking loose. Why is controlling your emotions so important to success? In a landmark […] ...

In my speaker role, I am often asked by someone, “How important is luck with respect to becoming rich?” It’s a very good question. There are certain self-made millionaires (Saver/Investors), where luck does not play much of a factor. These millionaires become rich by saving and prudently investing their savings. Time, more than luck, is […] ...

One of the valid criticisms of my Rich Habits study is that my study was conducted by a non-academic and, thus, did not apply the generally accepted methodologies used by academia in studies. Also, my research included both qualitative (Q & A Interviews) and quantitive data, and this deviates from the norm, which is primarily […] ...

It is not easy being an entrepreneur. Entrepreneurs must fight millions of years of human evolution; evolution that compels you to seek out the safety inherent in the herd. This desire to herd helped early humans survive the onslaught of predators, lurking around every corner. Being part of a herd was the means by which […] ...
