About the Book

"One of the most successful financial advisors in the country" —Dow Jones Investment Advisor

How have a secretary, a firefighter, a retired naval officer, a housewife, a construction worker, and a pharmacist become wealthy? They, along with five thousand of your neighbors, have discovered the same secrets to attaining wealth. Their years of hard-won financial success—the result of a lifetime of trial and error—can now be yours.

All you have to do is buy this audio. Consider it your first wise investment.

Looking at the habits of thousands of financially successful people, bestselling author Ric Edelman has found that they share eight fundamental strategies for attaining wealth. These include: Don't measure your success by the S&P 500; Rarely move from one investment to another; Don't diversify the money you put into your employer retirement plans.

You can adopt these same strategies yourself, and Edelman shows you how.

By combining his years of experience as a financial advisor with the experiences of these ordinary investors, Ric Edelman provides you with the tools to help turn the wisdom of these real-life stories into practical steps that can help you create wealth.
