The Millionaire Manifesto ~ How To Build A Business That Actually Works For You!
This program is not about life and business as usual. In fact, it leads to an unusual life and/or an unusual business! Gil Gerretsen will show how to create wealth by NOT chasing after it, and that in fact, it will never be achieved if you do! Rather, he will show that all the great fortunes of the world have been created by people who were world-changers that had a passion for a product or idea and then focused on making it available to other people in the best way possible. Their wealth was a happy and deserved side-effect of their service to humanity. Then he’ll go on to show how anyone, anywhere can use that knowledge to build their own “place in the sun” and achieve memorable value and greatness.
