The Richest Man in Babylon

(Review) The Richest Man in Babylon

Through a series of parables, George Clason manages to teach us some very important lessons about finance and the rules we must follow to attain wealth.

It starts out describing how a simple chariot builder wants to be rich, and so asks the richest man in babylon what he must do to make money. Once they find this man, he doesn't just give his secrets away all at once. Instead, he teaches them things like "make money your slave."

What he means by this is that money should work for you; you should not work for money. People often take what Clason calls the "children of your savings" and they spend them all.

There are tons of lessons like these in the book and I invite you to download it and read it. It just might open your eyes to a very strategic way of thinking about money and how to make it work for you.
