From the Author
The word 'wealth' is almost always viewed as the ability to live like a king. In my book WEALTH VIRTUES, I redefine wealth as simply the goal of 'acquiring more money than you spend, and to save more than you owe.' The path set forth in WEALTH VIRTUES towards this goal is embodied in the Cycle of Positive Wealth, my own repeatable methodology of eliminating debt and increasing your savings. What keeps you on the path is the practice of Dr. Benjamin Franklin's Thirteen Virtues. To help you understand why these virtues matter, I provides knowledge and insight on the impact of health, creativity, non-linear thinking, and investing to allow you to achieve your goals as well as to become wealthy as defined within WEALTH VIRTUES.Whether you measure wealth in monetary terms or as a measure of the quality and meaning of your life, WEALTH VIRTUES will change the way you live if you are willing to take action to do so, with a little help from one of America's preeminent Founding Fathers.
