Overview

The Wealth Choice: Success Secrets of Black Millionaires by Dennis Kimbro

It's no secret that these hard times have been even harder for the Black community.

Approximately 35 percent of African Americans had no measurable assets in 2009, and 24 percent of these same households had only a motor vehicle. Dennis Kimbro, observing how the weight of the continuing housing and credit crises disproportionately impacts the African-American community, takes a sharp look at a carefully cultivated group of individuals who've scaled the heights of success and how others can emulate them. Based on a seven year study of 1,000 of the wealthiest African Americans, The Wealth Choice offers a trove of sound and surprising advice about climbing the economic ladder, even when the odds seem stacked against you. Readers will learn about how business leaders, entrepreneurs, and celebrities like Bob Johnson, Spike Lee, L. A. Reid, Herman Cain, T. D. Jakes and Tyrese Gibson found their paths to wealth; what they did or didn't learn about money early on; what they had to sacrifice to get to the top; and the role of discipline in managing their success. Through these stories, which include men and women at every stage of life and in every industry, Dennis Kimbro shows readers how to:

· Develop a wealth-generating mindset and habits

· Commit to lifelong learning

· Craft goals that match your passion

· Make short-term sacrifices for long-term gain
· Take calculated risks when opportunity presents itself

This book has allowed me to meet some of America's black millionaires through their personal stories of triumph, dedication, and persistence. Dr. Kimbro chose "regular" people from "regular" backgrounds and told their stories in a way that reminds me that success is available to anyone who is committed to it through hard work and determination.
