“When we’re faced with someone else’s success, it makes us think about why we can’t do it instead of how the other person did do it.”
--Author Chris Hogan
There have been three great books on the subject of wealth that I have been blessed to read over the years. The first one: “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill. The second: “Think and Grow Rich: A Black Choice” by Dennis Kimbro, Ph.D. The third one is the newcomer “Everyday Millionaires” by Chris Hogan (2019, 250 pages, Ramsey Press/The Lampo Group, LLC).
Hogan, fresh off of his successful previous work “Retire Inspired” decided to tackle the issue of millionaires from the ground or street level. Hogan has been a regular visitor to the famed Fox Business Network, and is a part of the Dave Ramsey family of financial experts.
There is a lot in the work that may scare more than a few readers--in a good way. The book has eleven chapters, and plenty of ‘action steps’ and quotes from those in the book’s research who have ‘done it’…become everyday millionaires through hard work, sticking to their plans, and not giving up.
According to the Hogan’s research, there are more reasons why people can become millionaires than you can shake a stick at. One of the key factors in accumulating wealth rests in the work ethic of the people involved, coupled with solid marriages. Chapter titles include: “You’ve Been Lied To”, “Live on Less Than You Make”, and “Stick To It”. If you’ve ever wanted a book that can give you flat-out reasons why you can become well off financially without a lot of double-talk, THIS is the work for you.
“Everyday Millionaires” by Chris Hogan is available from your favorite bookstore or electronic book seller. It is worth the investment to give a copy to your favorite graduate, during graduation season.
