When I was 19 years old, and studying to become a school teacher, I met a mechanic who happened to be a millionaire. I was so inspired by his self-made story that I wanted to see if I could eventually do the same thing—on a school teacher’s salary.
To do so, I learned the strategies that would give me the highest statistical odds of success in the stock and bond markets, while keeping my risks to a minimum. Using index funds, and following Warren Buffett’s mantra of embracing stock market drops, I built a million dollar investment portfolio by the time I was 38 years old.
My methods are supported by reams of academic research. They’re simple, and they take no more than 90 minutes a year. But for some strange reason, we don’t learn these strategies in school. As a result, most investors are unknowingly taken advantage of by self-serving financial advisors. This book teaches the nine rules of wealth that you should have learned in school. If you patiently follow these principles, you’ll dramatically increase your odds of growing wealthy. Let me show you how to do it.
