Twenty Billionaires Who Started With Nothing
Here's an informative piece of wisdom from the story of Carl Berg...


Berg took the hotel job with the goal of meeting someone that would give him a job in investment banking. "My theory worked fine," Berg says and explained that he eventually approached a regular who turned out to be the largest home builder in the country. The man offered Berg a job in the local office.

What I find amazing here was that Berg took a job purely in order to meet the people he wanted to meet - that would help him become a big money-making success. It's a piece of wisdom befitting a wizard...

Many people become successes just this way... They plan to meet a certain person, or a certain type of person, who can help them get to where they want to get - then "strategize" so that this meeting is more likely to happen.

Why not you, too?
