In Everyday Millionaires, #1 national best-selling author Chris Hogan will show you how ordinary people built extraordinary wealth—and how you can too. You’ll learn how millionaires live on less than they make, avoid debt, invest, are disciplined and responsible!
Our new book is based on the largest study EVER conducted on 10,000 U.S. millionaires—and the results will shock you! You’ll learn that building wealth has almost NOTHING to do with your income or your background! It doesn’t matter where you come from. It matters where you’re going.
Most people think it takes crazy investing knowledge, a giant salary, a streak of luck, or a huge inheritance to become a millionaire. But that couldn’t be further from the truth! Here’s what you need to understand: if you’re willing to do the work—if you’ll follow the stuff we teach, if you’ll commit to our plan—then you CAN become a millionaire.
Testimonials From Millionaires We Studied:
"I am living proof that you can come from a poor family with terrible money habits growing up, but with education, hard work, and an intentional plan, you can create wealth and change your family tree. I am a strong believer that you create your own destiny." — Al, $1.5 Million Net Worth
"I believe that perseverance, hard work, and commitment lead to success. I got married as a teenager and have since raised a family, gone to college, chased my career around the U.S., and become successful. Our children and family recognize nothing was given to us and that the above traits will bring success. There is no such thing as good luck or bad luck—only good planning or poor planning." — Sue, $2.5 Million Net Worth
"I had $20 to my name at 23 years old in the early 1980s. My husband-to-be didn’t have much more. I never imagined we would become millionaires. Fortunately, I had an employer early on who provided comprehensive education about 401(k)s, and we started saving young." — Cathy, $2.6 Million Net Worth
