Art Rain started business life with an aim – to become a millionaire or a multi-millionaire – and achieved his aim. in his late forties he had garnered enough to retire – if he had wanted to – and this freed him up to take on different business challenges and to develop other interests. In this book, in his own unique style, which breathes life and fun into a potentially dry-as-dust subject, finance, Art shows how a mixture of shrewd investments, careful husbanding of resources, understanding not only the price of everything but also the value of everything, can ensure that even a person on average wages can become wealthy.
Art’s self-deprecating humour and his ability to acknowledge mistakes and wrong moves – such as relying on financial experts when his own decisions would have been far better and a good deal less expensive – make this highly instructive and challenging book such fun. You may not want to emulate every aspect of Art’s approach to his life and money – after all few people will be dedicated enough to keep their own financial records in detail for forty years – but every reader will find sage advice, brilliant suggestions and highly thought-provoking insights into how to make money, keep money and grow it.
