A Classic Well Done

This is a very good version of a classic story. There are other versions of this in Audible. But, be careful. Some of the narration on those versions is terrible! The narrator here - Kevin T. Norris - is quite good. He delivers it the speech clearly and keeps in the style of the time period of when it was originally given. And the message of the story is fantastic!

Stimulating story telling letting.

For those that enjoy a great set of stories letting us all know what we are missing...this is it. The author ties together real life situations into a thread showing how much opertunity we are missing...right in our own back yard. A great inspirational text.

This is deliciously Nutricious mind food !! <3

Practices are many Principles are few. Practices come and go. Principles are always true! ;-) Enjoy a piece of our past preserved in a wonderfully brief return to principles. A journey guided through a lecture and a collection of small stories. Collected and given by a man who truly lived his life generations past. His simply direct insight stored wonderfully in this small short book. For the enjoyment of you and generations to come. I highly recommend this mental voyage.

Great Read!

This book helps you adapt the philosophy of helping those in your local community. When you help others, goodness finds its way back to you tenfold or more.

Provide valuable service to others to get ahead

Great lesson for everyone to follow. I especially liked the part about not using lack of capital as an excuse for why you can't start a business.

Feeling inspired!

Focus on recognizing other's needs and find a way to fulfill them. That's how someone earns money. Internal capital is far more important than investment capital in the beginning to start your trip towards money, success and financial freedom. Take advantage of your relative's feedback and know thyself. Then serve others somehow.
