How to Create Your Own Recipe for ProsperityLearn To Become Your Own Wealth Chef
I like to describe my new book Wealth Chef as the ultimate wealth cookbook. In its pages, you’ll discover how to make your money work harder, so you don’t have to. Wealth and financial success are learned skills. You can learn to succeed at anything. If you want to be a great cook, you take a cooking course, you buy recipe books, you get to know your ingredients, and you practice. If you want to be a great golfer, you get a golf pro to teach you, you go to the driving range and practice your shots, and you get in the game to learn. And if you want to be wealthy, then, just like cooking or golf, you can learn how to do it.
It doesn’t matter where you are right now or where you’re starting from. What matters is that you’re willing to learn. No one comes out of the womb a financial genius. Every wealthy person learned how to succeed at the money game—and so can you.
I also discovered that financial success is 80 percent about the person and only 20 percent about the technical skills. Eighty percent of the wealth that I’ve created in my life is a result of my mind-set. The road to financial freedom is neither complicated nor difficult, though most people have been led to believe it is. The main reason so many people struggle financially is simply that they’ve never been taught the recipes for wealth.
I’ve had this book in my head for several years. I must have read hundreds of financial books and, generally speaking, I’ve found them to be very frustrating. They either gave me a great motivating story, telling me I needed to do something, but never exactly what; or else they were jam-packed with technical jargon that confused me and sent me into analysis paralysis instead of making me take action. And some, to be honest, just bored me to tears.
The Wealth Chef is a step-by-step book that teaches you the why, the who, the what, the when, and the how! It provides anyone who has the desire to achieve financial freedom all the recipes needed to create abundant wealth, as well as the skills to master them easily and effortlessly.
Learning and mastering the recipes for wealth is about creating a gourmet banquet of your own life. It’s about being able to feast on all the riches around us, sharing life’s joys with those you love. It’s about enabling you to get to the point where money is supporting you, not suppressing you, so that you can get on with the important business of living the big, shiny, purposeful life you came here to live!
Being wealthy is about creating, expanding, contributing, and leaving more than you took. It’s about having the freedom to do what you want, where you want, and when you want to do it. It’s about doing what you were meant to do.
Recipes and Skills for Wealth
Just as in cooking, there are a series of fundamental basics that every person needs to master in order to have control of their finances, be able to weave magic with their money, and create a banquet out of their lives—a rich and tasty financial banquet. Few people, however, realize that, just like cooking, these basic money recipes are easy to learn! You’ll be confident with your money management, you’ll have control of your own financial well-being, and you’ll understand how money works, how to bring it into your life, how to keep it there, and how to make it grow.
Reading, learning, and mastering the recipes for wealth will save you both time and money by enabling you to learn from others’ mistakes and successes. The recipes show you how to create a steady stream of Income flowing into your life without having to swap time for money for the rest of your days. Most important, these recipes will free up your mind from stress and worry, because once applied, your financial freedom will be assured. The tools, skills, and knowledge you’ll need to get your money and wealth sorted forever include the following:

and pleasure out of your life, as well as prevent you from living the life that you’re born to live!
