After he lost his job, Mark Aardsma started over with only a few thousand dollars in savings. He took the reins of his life and, over a ten-year period, built a multimillion-dollar business and robust investment holdings. Along the way, he worked out some helpful life lessons on managing time, seizing opportunities and using your resources and talents as an investor. Aardsma presents those lessons with charm and wit in this engaging narrative, though seasoned readers of financial how-to books may find little that’s new. While never giving investment advice, getAbstract recommends his entrepreneurial guide to businesspeople, students and investors seeking counsel on leveraging your talents and passion to achieve your long-term goals.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to invest your resources today to achieve the future outcomes you want,
- How to take ownership of your assets, time and skills to generate greater gains and
- What crucial steps you can take to create a life full of promise.
