More About the Author

Richard Paul Evans
When Richard Paul Evans wrote the #1 best-seller, The Christmas Box, he never intended on becoming an internationally known author.

Officially, he was an advertising executive, an award-winning clay animator for the American and Japanese markets, candidate for state legislature and most importantly, husband and father. The Christmas Box was written as an expression of love for his (then) two daughters. Though he often told them how much he loved them, he wanted to express his love in a way that would be timeless. In 1993, Evans reproduced 20 copies of the final story and gave them to his closest relatives and friends as Christmas presents. In the month following, those 20 copies were passed around more than 160 times, and soon word spread so widely that bookstores began calling his home with orders for it.

His quiet story of parental love and the true meaning of Christmas made history when it became simultaneously the #1 hardcover and paperback book in the nation. Since then, more than eight million copies of The Christmas Box have been printed. The Emmy award-winning CBS television movie based on The Christmas Box starred Maureen O'Hara and Richard Thomas. Two more of Evans's books were produced by Hallmark and starred such well-known actors as James Earl Jones, Vanessa Redgrave, Naomi Watts, Mary McDonough and Academy award winner Ellen Burstyn. He has since written 10 consecutive New York Times bestsellers and is one of the few authors in history to have hit both the fiction and non-fiction bestseller lists. He has won three awards for his children's books including the 1998 American Mothers book award and two first place Storytelling World awards. Evans's latest book, The 5 Lessons a Millionaire Taught Me About Life and Wealth, is now available.

Of his success, Evans says: "The material achievements of The Christmas Box will never convey its true success, the lives it has changed, the families brought closer together, the mothers and fathers who suddenly understand the pricelessness of their children's fleeting childhood. I share the message of this book with you in hopes that in some way, you might be, as I was, enlightened."

During the Spring of 1997, Evans founded The Christmas Box House International, an organization devoted to building shelters and providing services for abused and neglected children. Such shelters are operational in Moab, Vernal, Ogden and Salt Lake City, Utah and Lucre, Peru. To date, more than 16,000 children have been housed in Christmas Box House facilities.

As an acclaimed speaker, Evans has shared the podium with such notable personalities as President George W. Bush, President George and Barbara Bush, former British Prime Minister John Majors, Ron Howard, Elizabeth Dole, Deepak Chopra, Steve Allen, and Bob Hope. Evans has been featured on the Today show and Entertainment Tonight, as well as in Time, Newsweek, People, The New York Times, Washington Post, Good Housekeeping, USA Today, TV Guide, Reader's Digest, and Family Circle. Evans lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, with his wife, Keri, and their five children.

The 5 Lessons A Millionaire Taught Me for Women About Life and Wealth by Richard Paul Evans is short, sweet and filled with financial pearls of wisdom. Commonsense advice, valuable resources and motivational quotations make this little book a must read for any women ready for financial success.

Truthfully, I am always a little skeptical about men writing books aimed at women. I was happy to realize that Richard Paul Evans was inspired to write this book based on the advice he gave his niece and the lessons from his first book The 5 Lessons A Millionaire Taught Me About Life and Wealth. He uses the same five keys as the first book but adds tips, statistics and examples aimed at women and our specific financial needs. I read the original 5 Lessons and still wanted to read this one because it was specifically geared toward women. The 5 Lessons A Millionaire Taught Me for Women About Life and Wealth didn't disappoint!

This book is a quick read - 118 pages of how-tos and about 60 pages of resources. Just because it is small doesn't mean it isn't filled with valuable and useful information. Each page contains at least one nugget of wisdom to help get our financial house in order and steer us on the path of greater financial self-sufficiency.

There is something for every woman in The 5 Lessons A Millionaire Taught Me for Women About Life and Wealth, no matter how financially savvy you may be. These five keys are practical wealth building ideas that we should never grow weary of reading and applying in our lives.

My favorite key is Lesson Four: Win In the Margins. "The wealthy find additional ways to add to their growing nest egg." Included in this lesson are four valuable mind-sets:

The thing I loved about these 5 Lessons for Women is that I feel like, "Hey, I can actually do this!". I have been a little bit frustrated or maybe I should say, intimidated, about some financial books but this one not only related to me on a real level as a woman, but I felt like they were things that I can put into action, now. I have learned so much from these five lessons: I now have a nest egg that my husband and I add to each month, I know my net worth, I know how much money we bring in every month and how much we spend (which was surprising how much we were spending on just food alone!!), and I just have a new outlook and committment on my financial situation. I feel more empowered and that I don't have to drown in these hard economic times. I have already shared this book with my mom, sister and girlfriends- it is truly life-changing! I love that Richard tapped into the way women handle and think about money- he was right on! Thank you Richard!! :)

At first I discounted this version as I LOVED the The Five Lessons a Millionaire Taught Me About Life and Wealthbook by Mr. Richard Paul Evans. Why would women need their own spin on these classic lessons? After getting a favorable review from a trusted friend I decided to check it out. She'd lent out her copy but I was able to listen to the audio book. Wow! It really does include great additional resources and examples that I totally enjoyed. I gained great new psychological insights into why I struggle with saving and paying myself first. In fact I was able to make an important step and have saved 10% of our income this month and I'm looking forward to cutting myself a check for the second month in a row!

I recommend The Five Lessons a Millionaire Taught Me for Womenas one of the top 5-10 books on financial management of ALL TIME! Especially relevant for women in our current financial meltdown. I will be purchasing soon- a planned financial investment for me and my family. Even my 13 yr old is walking around talking about his nest egg.

This is an incredible book that I'd like to recommend to everyone. If you're not a woman, you can read the same 5 lessons in The 5 Lessons a Millionaire taught me about Life and Wealth.

This book is a quick read and that's a big plus since I've slogged through quite a few finance type books (and some I didn't finish). Richard outlines the steps to financial freedom in easy to understand terms with plenty of interesting examples.

He writes in such a way that I felt like I was listening to a motivational speaker (which he is) while reading. I felt so encouraged about the things that my husband and I are trying to do right with our finances and supported on those things that we can improve on.

My nitpicks: I would've liked to see more new information in this book, instead of mostly a repeat of the first book, The 5 Lessons a Millionaire Taught Me about Life and Wealth, (which I also own) but this is a minor nitpick since repetition is the greatest teacher.

My Favorites: My favorite lesson is Winning in the Margins, where Richard teaches you how to look for new ways to increase your income by thinking outside of the box and looking for opportunities instead of getting stuck in a rut. I love the stories he shares in the book of people who applied Winning in the Margins to add to their wealth.

*Richard encourages his readers to share the 5 Lessons with someone else within 48 hours of reading the book. Okay, I'm a few hours late, but I hope this review will encourage you to pick up the 5 Lessons and revolutionize your financial life!
