You don’t have to be educated or connected to be wealthy

How do wealthy people do it? Are they geniuses? Lucky? We tend to think something special must be going on because it looks like magic. But nothing could be further from the truth. Wealthy people have simply adopted six key, yet ordinary, habitsand they do them extraordinarily well.

Candy Valentino opened her first brick-and-mortar store at 19—no college, no connections, no money—and built it into a seven-figure business before most of her friends graduated college. Over two decades of success as a serial entrepreneur and real estate investor, she has labored relentlessly to crack the code of the super-wealthy, and in doing so, has unearthed six simple habits that directly contribute to those who become part of the self-made millionaire class.

In Wealth Habits, Valentino reveals all six habits, and shows you how you can put them to work for you:

  • Long-term investing strategies
  • How to recession-proof your business
  • Ways to keep money out of the IRS’ hands
  • What to teach your children about money
  • How to establish financial protection and security
  • The secrets to keep more of the money you make (so you can invest more)

“Think and get rich” will only get you so far. It’s time to do and become wealthy… and set yourself up for a lifetime of true financial freedom.
