In the book “How the rich get rich”, Jeff Haden shared the results he received by collecting information from 400 tax returns for people who had the most gross earnings.
Although this data can only be one variant of reality, the Spectrem Group, which studied 132,000 Americans who owned more than $25 million, provided information about how the wealthy claim to have earned their money.
Here’s what they said contributed to their success:
Hard work: 87%
Smart investment: 72%
Being at the right place at the right time: 56%
Managing the job: 46%
Advisor help: 35%
