Inspired by the true story of a flight with Sir Richard Branson, Millionaire Upgrade blows the lid off the accepted belief that successful entrepreneurs are a breed apart, possessing some special magic.
Through the combined wisdom of interviews with 50 self-made millionaire entrepreneurs, this book takes you on your own personal master class in success, as experienced through the eyes of Tom, a frustrated employee who is upgraded on a long haul flight, and finds himself sitting next to self made millionaire Michael. During the flight Michael shares the science and secrets behind his own success.
Better than any in-flight movie, Millionaire Upgrade gets you inside the minds of successful entrepreneurs and self-made millionaires giving you the inside track on how they think and act.
The book describes the key differences between the entrepreneur and the rest of us: attitude, persistence and tenacity. The acronym ?I Believe? appears a bit strained, but the principles behind it are sound, established and timeless.
This book may be best for a younger person ready to break out and take on the world, but even a more mature, seasoned entrepreneur may benefit from the pep talk.
