Overview

Who wants to be a millionaire? We all do, actually. Only nowadays it's not enough to have just one million, as being really comfortable requires having several million in the bank. With more millionaires than ever before, it seems tantalizingly within reach. In this look at how to get the good life, 12 self-made millionaires come clean about how they got filthy rich. Michelle Mone grew up in a one-bedroomed tenement in Glasgow and watched her sister die young and her dad become paralyzed, and yet she went on to build a money-spinning underwear empire. And 28-year-old Alexander Amosu became the self-styled King of Ringtones, ringing up a fortune in the process. What the people in this book prove is that there's no such thing as a typical millionaire. Some are middle aged, some barely out of school. Some come from nothing with everything to prove, others reinvent themselves after otherwise indifferent careers. The main things they have in common are ambition, motivation, and the ability to think big. Witty, moving, and packed with invaluable insider tips, How I Made My First Million is essential reading for anyone who has ever had a dream, or dared to think outside the box.
