By George Clason

In his book ‘The richest man in Babylon’ George Clason offers seven steps or cures to ensure a wealthier life. I recommend that you read the book.

By George Clason

Step 1: Start Thy Purse to Fattening

For each ten coins you earn, spend only nine

Step 2: Control Thy Expenditures

Budget your expenses that you may have coins to pay for your necessities, pay for your enjoyments and gratify your worthwhile desires without spending more than nine-tenths of your earnings.

Step 3: Make Thy Gold Multiply

Put each coin to labor so that it may reproduce its kind.

Step 4: Guard Thy Treasures from Loss

Guard your treasures from loss by investing only where the principal is safe, where it

may be reclaimed if you desire so, and where you will not fail to collect a fair rental.

Step 5: Make of Thy Dwelling a Profitable Investment

Own your own home.

Step 6: Insure a Future Income

Provide in advance for the needs of your growing age and the needs of your family.

Step 7: Increase Thy Ability to Earn

Cultivate your own powers, study and become wiser, become more skillful, and respect yourself.
