This chapter will give you tips on how to think about cash the way the wealthy do. It will help
you become financially smarter also.
The greatest misconception about being wealthy is that you have to flaunt your wealth to
show individuals that you're wealthy. Believe it or not, there might be millionaire families on
your street and you'd never know it.
That's because most millionaires look like regular individuals who don't flaunt their wealth.
They own regular houses and automobiles. They might have a few luxuries but most

solve a mystery on TV. The evident answer is rarely the correct one. Reaching the answer
