The Automatic Millionaire by David Bach

When David Bach was just seven years old, his grandma taught him a life-changing personal finance lesson on a trip to McDonald’s.

Once they sat down and started eating, she told him there are three types of people in the world: those who eat at McDonald’s, those who work at McDonald’s, and those who invest in McDonald’s. Then, she helped him buy his first share of McDonald’s stock and taught him why being an investor is the best way to succeed in life.

He took her advice to heart and went on to become one of the most successful and well-known investors in the world.

If you’d like to learn David’s best tips for setting up your finances so that they run towards your goals on auto-pilot, then click on the image below to watch our video summary of The Automatic Millionaire right now!
