In the tradition of the megabestsellerThe Millionaire Next Door,Eight Steps to Seven Figuresbrings together in-depth interviews with over two hundred everyday people whose investments have made them millionaires. But whileThe Millionaire Next Doordescribes its subjects' lifestyles and spending habits,Eight Steps to Seven Figuresfocuses squarely on the investing strategies and principles that ordinary people have used to achieve the magic million-dollar mark. Bestselling author and chartered financial analyst (CFA) Charles Carlson reveals the keys used by the newly wealthy to reap extraordinary dividends, including a discussion of the specific stocks, bonds, and other financial vehicles they choose as part of their investment mix. In the course of the book, readers learn how to determine how much time they need to spend researching and watching over their portfolios, when to buy, and equally important, when to sell. From hundreds of accounts of those Carlson calls "Main Street millionaires," he distills eight specific investment rules anyone can follow to become financially worry-free. Among the lessons he outlines and elaborates on: "Buy and Hold and Buy and Hold and Buy and Hold"--Harness the power of time in growing your portfolio and compounding your investment returns. "Know Where You Are Going"--Determine your invest        ment time frame, financial goals, and risk "comfort" level to put together a successful wealth-building strategy. "Play to Your Strengths"--Everyone has different personality strengths, investment advantages, and specialized knowledge that they bring to the table; recognize and exploit them in achieving your financial goals. One of the best things about Carlson's book is that it recognizes and allows for readers who may not have the resources to follow all eight rules. It offers reassurance and hope that there is more than one way to achieve the seven-figure pinnacle. Even people who started investing later in life, and can't fully harness the power of time, can find here the guidance they need to become wealthy. Filled with the insights and investment advice that hundreds of everyday people have followed to become rich, and buttressed with countless you-are-there stories of how these millionaires did it,Eight Steps to Seven Figuresis an absolute must for today's investors.
