Based on the authors own research, and development of Millionaire MBA(.com)
this book explains the strategies and mindset of successful entrepreneurs in
a clear and engaging style
A worthy upgrade for you and your business!
Like many good books this is inspired by actual events(with Richard Branson
of all people),If you thought millionaires are a breed apart think again.


It uses the story of a meeting between Tom an employee of a software
company, soon to be made redundant, and Michael a successful entrepreneur and
how chance events brought them to be seated side by side.
Michael notices Tom reading a self help book,(Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich) and this, causes Michael to engage Tom in conversation.

Michael then over the course of the flight explain the strategies and style
of thinking he uses, explaining the difference between an employee's mindset
and that of a successful business person, with Tom taking notes along the
way.

I have read many business books ,but the clear difference here is the light
tone and engaging way it is written, I found it difficult to put down.
There's even a handy acronym, I Believe ,with each letter having it's
own chapter, I found the section on goals helped me identify where I
have been going wrong, and what I need to do to correct this, at the
end of each chapter there is also a section on the notes made by Tom to
help him and us ,understand and reinforce Michaels teachings.
Michael although clearly appreciating the trappings of success, reveals
that he was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth, this made it easy to
identify with him.
Tom is also a character we can all relate to being victim to external
demands, unable to do his job to a standard he believes in, the reason for his
flight being to do his bosses dirty work and help close down a plant overseas
This book could be the glue that brings together and clarifies everything
some of what you may have read elsewhere but didn't quite get, or wasn't as
clearly explained as it is here.
The whole style of the book is light and easy to read and understand unlike
many business books, it's more like a Haynes success manual for business.

There's no la-la land touchy feely stuff here, just useable down to earth advice


So if you are starting a new business, or expanding an existing one ,or are
involved in any way in the corporate world, this book is a should and indeed
a must read .
There are timeless lessons here and I will pick up Millionaire Upgrade
quite often to re read certain sections ,and reinforce the lessons.

There's a sentence in the first paragraph which appears twice - you might want to edit this!
