How To Hang Out With Self-Made Millionaires

A while ago I read an article written by one of my friends and favorite podcast guests Cody Shirk. He wrote the article as an answer to a question he was asked.

"Where do I hang out with self-made millionaires," the person asked.

Cody wrote wrote back. He said that every night he used to spend time with Dale Carnegie, Warren Buffet, and Napoleon Hill. He soaked up their insight like a dry sponge thrown into water. He would not say a word and all he would do was listen.

Well, how is that possible?


Books are like personal letters that contain concentrated advice straight from a trustworthy source.

Cody stated that he didn't have a group of millionaires to hang out with. So he decided to make his own. He was a fly on their wall and absorbed what they shared. Everything from Real estate, value investing, history, and any piece of information he could get his hands on.
