Hear What People are Saying About The Wealth Choice
“Decide now that you will not be poor,” is the battle cry of this lively, well-researched book by the author of Think and Grow Rich: A Black Choice. In The Wealth Choice, Dennis Kimbro sets out his seven laws of wealth and delves into the inspiring and motivating stories of African-Americans who achieved great wealth through determination despite obstacles and disappointment. Regardless of their back stories, these self-made millionaires and billionaires share “a relentless commitment to lifelong learning and tenacity of purpose,” writes Kimbro. And at some point, each chose to be wealthy and to embrace that goal. Rags-to-riches stories woven into the book illustrate the power of perseverance. —Success Magazine, March 2013
Whatever the circumstances of an individual’s life—disadvantages of race, social status, or economic climate—wealth is a choice, argues Kimbro as he explores the lives of several successful African Americans to plumb the lessons of achieving wealth. Kimbro offers seven “laws” of wealth, including knowledge as an economic weapon, the importance of resolve, the pursuit of special gifts, and opportunities gained through service. Drawing on seven years of research and interviews with entrepreneurs and celebrities, Kimbro highlights the personality traits and habits that have led them to succeed against great odds. Among his interview subjects are Bob Johnson, Terry McMillan, Spike Lee, T. D. Jakes, and Richard Parsons. Kimbro explores their attitudes and early lessons on money as well as the personal challenges they faced to achieve success. Although targeted at African Americans, readers of all races and ethnicities will appreciate these inspiring stories and insights on overcoming obstacles and achieving wealth. —Vanessa Bush
