Have you ever wondered how a rich person was able to accumulate so much money? Perhaps you’ve taken notice of a poor person and found it perplexing, or even upsetting, that he just didn’t have any money no matter how hard he worked.

What determines who will be rich and who will be poor? The reality is that your money mindset helps you determine whether you’ll be rich or poor.

This book addresses the differences between the mindsets of rich and poor people when it comes to money. Each section explores a specific way of thinking about money and the widely contrasting views taken by the rich and poor. You’ll be enlightened about how you can alter what you think, feel and believe about money in order to “think rich.”
