A really fun and informative ride. One part Biography. One part Self-Help. The Richest Man In Town is a modern book that picks up where Napolean Hill leaves off and takes the secrets of success to a new level. Randy Jones interviews and deconstructs the characteristics that define the most successful self-made men and women in 100 cities and towns across America. What drives them? What do they have in common? Jones underlines the keys to their success and provides a map for anyone to follow in their footsteps.
This is NOT a bible for the greedy. It's a book that clearly shows the results for the hard-working, early risers who have balanced their passions with what they are really good at. Some RMITs include Carl Icahn, Bill Gates, John McAfee, Fredrick Smith, Michael Dell, Bernard Marcus, and so on...
The book is organized into 12 commandments that encourage you to Wake Up Early, Be Your Own Boss, Fail to Succeed, Say Yes to Sales, Never Retire, etc., etc... Some of them seem obvious although some may surprise you. Jones weaves through them using the experience of his wealthy subjects and includes a countless number of inspirational quotes to push you on your way.
Most success manuals will tell you that if you work hard enough and set your mind to it, you can accomplish anything. Jones says that's not true and backs it up with his counter-intuitive commandment to "Find Your Perfect Pitch".
This is a book for anyone who loves real life stories of success. Where else can you get the bullet points from the biographies of the wealthiest people in America?
As Mal Mixon, the RMIT of Cleveland, Ohio says, "Don't procrastinate because in only two days, tomorrow will be yesterday."
