Millionaire Status: Why So Many Men?

By Sarah Fallaw on Oct 19th, 2018 in Books and Publications, Studying the Wealthy

More than anything else, our research findings related to becoming economically successful on our own have more to do with behaviors related to saving, spending, investing, and planning than characteristics that we cannot control, or have little choice over, like how we were raised. We’ve even seen, through the research we’ve conducted at DataPoints, that […]

An Update on “The Book”

By Sarah Fallaw on Aug 15th, 2018 in Books and Publications, Current Events, Studying the Wealthy

On October 1, the book my father and I began writing several years ago will, at long last, make its appearance on bookshelves. The title is The Next Millionaire Next Door, and it focuses on what it will take for this (or any) generation to achieve lasting financial success. Our research revealed (and thus our writing focused on) themes […]

The Gift of Data

By Sarah Fallaw on Dec 22nd, 2016 in Books and Publications, Current Events

The follow up to The Millionaire Next Door is underway, and part of that effort has been analyzing data and merging the findings into the drafted chapters of the new book. A few weeks ago, I visited the team at Kennesaw State University who worked with us to administer the massive survey to assess the habits, behaviors, […]

On the 20th Anniversary of The Millionaire Next Door

By Sarah Fallaw on Oct 20th, 2016 in Books and Publications, Current Events

As we progress through this election cycle I am having a bout of deja vu.  We’ve been here before. Back in 1996 we were watching another election cycle that involved the Clintons–Bill Clinton versus Bob Dole versus Ross Perot.  We were also seeing increased technology addiction (chatting on dial-up ISPs), and feeling as if threats […]

Emphasize Net Worth-Part II

By Thomas J. Stanley on Oct 13th, 2011 in Books and Publications

In the previous blog, I reflected upon the millionaire next door’s Rule #2 for building wealth.  I’d like to thank Mr. “Cropmate” for reminding me of this concept.  In an Amazon book review for Stop Acting Rich he stated: I first heard of him [Stanley] and his then new book [The Millionaire Next Door] from an excerpt in a […]

Abraham Lincoln: The President “Next Door”

By Thomas J. Stanley on Sep 8th, 2011 in Books and Publications

In the Across the USA section of USA Today a recent item from Athens, Georgia conjured up some past emotions about my alma mater.  It mentioned that millions of items were in the process of being moved from The University of Georgia’s main library to a new building which will house special collections.  I hope that my […]

More Lessons from Keith Richards’ LIFE

By Thomas J. Stanley on Jun 14th, 2011 in Books and Publications

After completing their first grueling 1,000 gig tour, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards made one of the best business decisions of their short careers.  They hired a manager, Andrew Oldham, for the Rolling Stones.  Mr. Oldham informed them that musicians, no matter how talented, are a dime a dozen, and unless they begin to write their own songs they will soon […]

Lessons Learned from Keith Richards’ LIFE

By Thomas J. Stanley on Jun 9th, 2011 in Books and Publications

Are you contemplating a career as a small business owner?  If so, you may wish to read Keith Richards’ book, Life.  I believe that the Rolling Stones band is the single most productive small business in the free world!  Often public corporations brag about their average revenue per employee- in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.  For the four […]

The Millionaire Mind . . . Alive and Even Richer

By Thomas J. Stanley on May 12th, 2011 in Books and Publications

It seems that there is more interest now in how the top 1% of the wealth holders in America think than there was when The Millionaire Mind was first published.  The principles revealed in this book are timeless and especially important for those who are business owners and for those who are compensated purely on their […]
