Secrets of the Young & Successful

How to Get Everything You Want Without Waiting a Lifetime

By Jennifer Kushell and Scott Kaufman

"Twenty-something" readers of this book rate it highly, calling it inspiring and practical, a guide to take charge of their life, discover what they love to do, and be successful doing it. The "grandfatherly" US News & World Report calls the author the "guru of her generation."

Using an easy, conversational style, Kushell packs her book with anecdotes, strategies and profiles of such young and successful as the 28-year old managing director of an investment bank, the 16-year-old whose second small business employs three adults twice his age and the 19-year-old who represents his country at a global youth employment conference. Each story is an inspiration to plan to do what you love, and then to work the plan passionately.

Rich Dad's Retire Young, Retire Rich

By Robert T. Kiyosaki and
Sharon L. Lechter

This fifth book in the mega-popular Rich Dad series, Retire Young, Retire Rich speaks to the young generation who crave a different lifestyle from parents who worked every day of their adult lives with little if any money to enjoy their too-few retirement years. Kiyosaki's message: As long as you're working for someone else, no matter how much you make, you will never be truly free.

Kiyosaki uses his own story--from broke to rich to retired within ten years--to set readers solidly on course to identify their critical "why" and then discover their path to "how." While not a step-by-step guide, RYRR gives hope to those with doubts and general direction on where to begin: real estate rentals, small businesses and, you guessed it, network marketing.

By Rieva Lesonsky and
Gayle Sato Stodder

Young Millionaires looks at 101 entrepreneurs, from high-school age to 40, whose companies make a million dollars or more. Says Lesonsky, "The entrepreneurs in this book succeeded by doing more than they ever dreamed they could, by working longer and harder mustering talents they never knew they had, by making personal sacrifices they didn't think they were capable of, and by conjuring a faith so powerful, no obstacle could diminish it."
