Overview

Raised by a single parent in the impoverished south side of Chicago as the youngest of five children, Farrah Gray defied the odds to become a millionaire at the age of fourteen. He made his second million by sixteen and now inspires thousands through his speeches, writing, and consulting. His recipe for success: attitude, hustle, and an emphatic rejection of the most pervasive lies most of us believe about money and success.

In Get Real, Get Rich, Farrah breaks down those seven lies one by one. Have you ever thought to yourself I’ll never be rich because I wasn’t born with connections, or a special talent? That’s The Born Lucky Lie. The truth is this: Luck is about showing up. And Farrah will help you move beyond the lottery mentality. If you’ve convinced yourself that you must first have money to make money, then you’ve fallen prey to The Money Lie. In the real world, the path to millions starts with just one dollar, and Farrah can help you find that first one. Perhaps you recognize yourself in one of these other misconceptions:

I have to hit it big in entertainment or sports to be rich (The Celebrity Lie).
I have to work hard and make sacrifices to be rich (The Work Hard Lie).
I have to have zero debt to be rich (The Debt Lie).
I have to be super smart or invent something the world relies on to be rich (The Google and Gates Lie).
I have to know a lot about the stock market or work on the Street to be rich (The Wall Street Lie).

In seven simple and provocative chapters blending inspiration and an actionable wealth building plan, Farrah lays out your road map to a richer life.

“Too many of us live paycheck to paycheck and pray that those compilations of books and CDs and DVDs will somehow lead us to ‘automatic wealth.’ News flash: There’s no such thing as automatic wealth - at least not in the real world. In this book, I’m not only going to share the mind-set you need to achieve all that you dream, but also the specific strategies that accompany that state of mind. I want to help you marshal out your own wealth potential, which relates to everything about you - not just your bank account.”

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

High-profile financial entrepreneur Gray, featured in print, magazine, radio, and TV outlets, follows up his first title (Reallionaire), which was essentially his autobiography, with a work explaining his life philosophy and the tools one needs to achieve. Raised by a single parent on Chicago's South Side and the youngest of five children, the author defied the odds and became a millionaire at the age of 14. He then made his second million by age 16, and this work accentuates his personal recipe for success, which includes having the right attitude and being willing to work hard and hustle, and his emphatic rejection of what he perceives as the most pervasive myths many people believe about financial success. After distinguishing the difference between merely having a lot of money and building genuine long-term wealth based on a variety of assets, Gray explains away the typical myths, including the need to be born lucky, to have money to make money, and to know a lot about the stock market or work on the Street. Countering these myths, Gray offers his sobering, pragmatic advice. While this advice will appeal to fans of Stephen Covey, Gray's obviously nonprofessional but passionate style of narration works to connect this inspirational material with its core audience, including inner-city youth struggling to define themselves and overcome their own obstacles to success. Recommended for larger public libraries.

    Inspiring

    Being in a position where I wanted to go for it and set up my own business, I sought books that would provide me with a boost and inspiration. This book is a very real story that shows that we can really do whatever we put our minds to. By reading about success we understand what has taken others to greatness and what we need to do as individuals to achieve our best. This young man really shows us that we have no excuse not to accomplish all that we desire.
