Michael Ellsberg, a friend from college, just published this book:
The Education of Millionaires: It’s Not What You Think and It’s Not Too Late.
Michael researched self-made successful people and shares loads of insights about what worked for them.
And how about cool marketing for the new book: Free webinars with Michael, where you get to hear more about some of the millionaires in the book. A NYC rooftop launch party including a unique auction for dates with eligible bachelor entrepreneurs – won by purchasing the most copies of the new book. Spreading the word about the book but also sharing valuable information, making connections, and having fun. That’s cool.
“Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it.
Until one is committed there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.
Concerning all acts of initiative there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and endless plans.
That the moment one definitely commits oneself then providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help one that would never have otherwise occurred.
A whole stream of events issue from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents, and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would come his way.
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
Begin it now.”
[Every time I read this quote I get the chills. Sometimes taking the first step seems impossible. After, it’s amazing how quickly things can happen.]
