Money Mood: The One Minute Millionaire

Today’s weather: Sunny with a chance of a million dollars.

Today our lessons on making money come from the book The One Minute Millionaire by Mark Victor Hansen and Robert Allen

The One Minute Millionaire

This book is structured in an unusual and interesting way: the right side is the non-fiction ‘The One Minute Millionaire’ while the right side is a novel. The story follows Michelle, a recently widowed mother of two, who after losing custody of her children to her in-laws, has 90 days to come up with a million dollars in order to get them back.
