Money can Buy You Happiness

In Die Broke Stephen Pollan introduced a new radical new strategy for spending, saving, and investing money in today's financial market.In Live Rich, he now concentrates on the earning side--with the compelling observation that living rich has less to do with net worth and everything to do with freedom. You can live the life you want by adhering to the four tenets of the Live Rich philosophy:

  • Make Money
    Too many of us have been fed the line that "work isn't necessarily about making money." Tell that to Visa next time they send you a bill.

  • Don't Grow, Change
    Be ready to change your work paradigm on a moment's notice, to morph from career to career several times as conditions--and you--change.

  • Take Charge
    In the twenty-first century, you must become proactive and start taking measured risks.

  • Become a Mercenary
    Think for yourself as a free agent, responsible for your own security and always on the lookout for the next great job.

  • Live Rich
    With Stephen Pollan's revolutionary workplace ideals, as well as a detailed action plan, you can apply this philosophy to every facet of your life and truly Live Rich.

User Review  - Not Available - Book Verdict

A sequel to their provocative Die Broke (HarperBusiness, 1998), the coauthors challenge old notions about loyalty to the firm and "self-actualizing" employment vs. working for money. They suggest that even if you have a boss, you should strive to be working for yourself. (LJ 10/1/98). Read full review
