There’s a topic we believe is important to address prior to enlisting the
aid of mentors in this area. In many people’s minds — and in much of our

for living — financial prosperity can lead to other forms of prosperity. It will
lead to the freedom and independence to build our lives into something
truly special, both for us and those around us.
