Have you ever read a book that totally changed your life? The One Minute Millionaire is definitely one of those books. I happened upon it seemingly totally by chance. Because I don’t believe in coincidence though, I know it was a timely addition to my life.
The One Minute Millionaire is a book written by Robert Allen and Mark Victor Hansen. Robert Allen is a superbly successful Real Estate guru among other things and Mark Victor Hansen is the coauthor of the amazing series Chicken Soup for the Soul.
Together they’ve written a book that is unique and inspiring.
The One Minute Millionaire is written in a style I’ve never seen before but that I really enjoyed. The left pages of the book are a non-fiction book written in a “self-help” type of way. They talk about “24 Principles of Wealth” which they call AHAs. Each principle is clearly explained in a way that I thought was empowering and simple to understand. From the principles, they go on to talk about teams, networks, skills and tools, mentors, real estate, leverage, systems, and business. Each of these chapters is extremely inspiring and I found them to actual make sense. The things the book suggests and talks about are very well within the realm of doable and they do a great job of helping you break down your own mental barriers to make it possible.
The right pages of the book are a novel and follow the story of Michelle, a woman in an impossible situation who must rise to the occasion using the 24 AHAs and the other tools the book talks about. It’s a very good read – interesting, full of action and suspense, and perfectly designed to help you grasp the teachings of the book experientially. This well thought out addition alone makes this book extremely worthwhile in my opinion. The authors took a lot of time to ensure that this book was versatile enough to reach everyone.
To compliment the book, the authors have also created a valuable and telling website, One Minute Millionaire. Within the site, you’ll find assessment tools and tons of inspiration to get you motivated and keep you motivated. They offer a free teleseminar that I felt was really exceptional. I’ve been on calls before and this one felt genuine and heartfelt plus was full of useful, powerful information – the kind that really can help you become a millionaire.
The most impressive thing about this book for me was the mission that these men have set out to accomplish. They do not just want to help people become millionaires – their charge is to create enlightened millionaires. They believe that “money properly earned and combined with enlightened intentions makes the world a better place.”
I truly believe that what this book promises it can definitely deliver. I think at the very least it’s an inspiring read and one that will affect your life for the better!
