Millionaire Handbook ___________________________________________ Chapter 0 - Introduction The journey started with Robert Kiyosaki books which made me think that anybody could become a millionaire. In a stretch I completed all of his books and was trying to find other books and information on how to become wealthy. Along the course of two years I started compiling my reading list and making notes about the books. The knowledge thus acquired created a tremendous impact in my life. Suddenly, my life turned for the better and good things started happening. Much eluding promotion came on my way and I started accumulating wealth from different ways.

This book is intended as a match to light up the ideas and thoughts in your mind to think rich and become a millionaire. There are no shortcuts and some steps are easy and some hard. It is for you to understand, register and follow them to enhance the quality and live a financially free life.
