I first read "The Richest Man in Babylon" in 1975 when I started my job at Honeywell, Inc. I was a single mom and wanted to buy a house. I had no idea how I would be able to afford to purchase a home for my son with my income. I made an appointment with the banker just across the parking lot on the corner of Century and Airport Blvds in Los Angeles. I can't remember the banker's name, at that time it was Crocker Bank (now gone), but I am forever grateful for the banker's advice and recommendations. One bit of advice was to read this book. Needless to say, I transformed my thinking, attitude and behavior about money. I began investing in myself first, which was a major adjustment of delaying gratification. I diverted 10% of my income into a saving (with the help of my banker's constant encouragement and reminder not to touch it no matter what the situation. It was my now called my "Principle" and I had to protect it. I gave away 10% right off the top to different charities. I started a little business with MLM (now Network Marketing). The MLM investment was affordable and so was the risk. The possibility was there to leverage my little investment and it was up to me to seize the opportunity, which in essence was sweat equity! I was a "Holiday Girl", which meant I sold "Holiday Magic" band lotions and potions when I wasn't in class or at work. By the way, I did have classmates and work buddies as customers. Something amazing happened, in just two years I was able to purchase my own brand new home in a new development. It was awesome knowing I could afford a new home. I had so much fun looking at different neighborhoods, models and square footage. I finally selected the development in the community where I wanted to live, the location and the street. I put 10% down and started the process. It was so exciting. I re-designed the floor plan and picked appliances, window coverings and flooring. I redesigned the entry foyer and custom designed the fireplace, opened up the master bedroom wall and put in sliding doors to enter the back yard from my bedroom, where there was room for a pool. The following year I put in a pool! I was the only single woman owner in the new housing development - an obvious rare feat in 1977.
"The Richest Woman in Babylon and Manhattan" introduces the same Seven Principles as the classic, yet in the language for women:
1) Fatten Your Purse - Pay yourself first 10% off the top. Give and Invest.
2) Control Your Expenditures - Guard your desires. Stay within your budget.
3) Make Your Moolah Multiply - Put your money to work honey. Always get advice to avoid pitfalls of investments.
4) Guard Your Treasures From Loss - Protect your "Principle" from loss. Watch out for corrupt banks and greedy lenders.
5) Build Your Home Into A Profitable Investment - Own land. Leverage your our home and money. Grow herbs and a money tree.
6) Insure A Future Income - Love what you do. Do what you love. Become an expert at it.
7) Increase Your Ability To Learn and Earn - Awaken you heart and soul for the great adventure. Cultivate and educate yourself through mentors, coaches and by reading books to increase your financial savvy. Get a Mentor.Be coachable. Become a Mentor.
