9 Surprising Habits of Millionaires That Will Make You Rich

I’ve always been fascinated with super rich people.

Haven’t you? The lifestyle just seems so unreal. Some of these people live in a completely different world.

I read last year and it made a big impression on me.

(Read my book review here)

The big thing I learned from this book is, a lot of millionaires – maybe the majority – don’t live the super-lavish, rich-kids-of-Instagram lifestyle we imagine.

What I’ve Learned in My First Three Months of Side Hustling
