The Memo: Five Rules for Your Economic Liberation
By John Hope Bryant
America’s poor, working poor, and middle class are in a waiting game they cannot win – jobs will not come, times will not get better, and communities will not flourish until they “get the memo,” i.e., take charge of their own financial futures. Bestselling author John Hope Bryant (How the Poor Can Save Capitalism) delivers The Memo. Read Full Article.
Bryant’s book provides five foundational rules that apply to every individual, rich or poor:
1- You Live in a Free Enterprise System—Embrace This.
2- Your Mindset Makes or Loses Money and Wealth—You Choose.
3- Relationships Are Investments—Build Relationship Capital With Yourself First
4- Don’t Just Get a Job—Be Entrepreneurial.
5- Spiritual Capital Is the Start of True Wealth.
