$262,938 Earned From Reading THESE Books 📚

There is no question that the best investment you can make in yourself is reading books. There is nothing that compares with the ROI of reading and taking action on what that book provides.

You’ve heard me talk about how wealthy people read books. It’s not just me saying this, I wanted to bring on a few people to share results they have achieved by reading. If you stay until the end I will share the book that has helped me make over a million dollars.

Gee Nontreah. [4:31] In the summer of 2017 I picked up a book called The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson. The author talks about taking little steps and actions. I did not have an emergency fund at that time, but by using tips in this book, within 4-5 months my emergency fund held $1,000. The tips in the book also allowed me to pay70% of my credit card debt.


Eric Rosenberg. [7:19] My favorite book that has changed how I make money is The Art of Non-Conformity by Chris Guillebeau. I used to have a typical 8-6 job, this book taught me that you don’t have to run your career the way other people expect. Following points in this book, I rebuilt my career, side hustled hard and then took my side hustle full time. I am now making up to 10,000 every month. That is not my biggest month, by far.

Joseph Hogue [9:08] In 2014 I had just started my own websites. I wasn’t making as much money as I had hoped. I was frustrated and would have given up if it weren’t for the book Write. Publish. Repeat. By Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant. This book helped me see how to fit self-publishing into my blog. This created a new income stream through self-publishing.


Roger Whitney [10:53] The book that led to significant growth in my business is Linchpin by Seth Godin. I was really challenged to ‘take it to the next level.’ I started a Podcast, grew my business over 50%, wrote a book, and made friends all over the world.


Nick True [13:24] The book I have chosen in Profit First by Mike Michalowicz. I implemented the system I learned from this book 5 months ago and have an additional $8,000 in my personal account and $2,000 in a business profit account. Building a profitable business is a slow process, this book has changed the game for me.


Chris Mamula [16:19] The book that gave me the biggest return was The Simple Part to Wealth by J. L. Collins. Prior to finding that book, I was intimidated by investing and was getting horrible advice from others. Within a year or reading I saved $8,000 in investment fees and $8,000 in taxes. That is 1,000 times return in just one year.

Bob Lotich [17:44] I am forever indebted to Tim Ferris and The 4 Hour Workweek. I didn’t apply everything from the book, but if you take one thing and apply that you can make a huge difference. I took this to heart and took a year off last year! It started with small steps like a week off, then a month off.


Jordan Harbinger [18:48] One book that I really liked was Friend of a Friend by David Burkus. David talks about opportunistic network maintenance. He recommends using social channels to connect with friends when they have important life events like a new child, etc. When we see their posts, reach out to them through text, call, or in-person. This has created a ton of opportunities.


David Pere [20:06] For me Never Split The Difference by Chris Voss was life changing. This has changed the way I handle negotiations. Immediately after reading this book I saved over $3,000 negotiating the repair on an apartment complex I was buying.

I hope you enjoyed learning about these books and the amazing results these people have seen.

My book is Crush it by Gary Vaynerchuk. I read this book when I had just started my blog and social media. Watching Gary and reading this book has helped me use available tools to get my message out there. It pushed me to take it to the next level.

I know that I am not the only one and neither are the people you’ve seen on this video.

Miltiades Renwick says:

Three books that had a strong impact on my life:

_In Search of Excellence: Lessons from America’s Best-Run Companies_ by Thomas J. Peters and Robert H. Waterman Jr. — it’s an older book and some of the companies highlighted in it no longer exist or are no longer at the top of their game, but the book seeks to explain why those companies did well and what you can do to make your company do well too.

_Why Should White Guys Have All the Fun?: How Reginald Lewis Created a Billion-Dollar Business Empire_ by Reginald F. Lewis and Blair S. Walker — the late Mr. Lewis was a business pioneer. I think it’s fair to say that without his example, we wouldn’t have an Oprah Winfrey or a Robert Johnson right now.


_How to Get Rich: One of the World’s Greatest Entrepreneurs Shares His Secrets_ by Felix Dennis — the late Mr. Dennis was behind the Dennis Publishing magazine empire, was a huge philanthropist, and was quite a character. This book does exactly what its title says; it tells you how to get rich 🙂

Great round up brother!!

Nico R says:

The 4 hour work week is garbage

Hernan Gonzalez says:

College student here. I was broke, I was living paycheck to paycheck. I came across The Richest Man in Babylon and it changed my life. Within a year I had 10k saved up.

Michael Savage says:

I read Millionaire Teacher by Andrew Hallam when I had no clue about investing. Learning that a high school English teacher could become a millionaire in his 30s blew my mind. Before reading the book, I had no investments except for my savings account in a bank. Now, I max out my IRA, put away 20% of my income into a 401(k), max out my HSA, and threw $1,000 into a CD just for the heck of it. My net worth has multiplied 8 times in the last 4 years since reading that book. It presented a simple way to understand investing in a short amount of pages with an easy guide on how to get started. I’ve also watched his YouTube interviews and think he’s just an overall great guy!

Christine Williams says:

Okay I’m listening and I understand what you’re saying to me I have a 55 year old female in debt where do I start how do I build business credit with a 547 credit rating in debt about $30,000 just give me one little nugget where do I start

Joost Kamphuis says:

ThriftyDadCreations says:

Oh man there are so many good books that have had a huge influence on my personal growth most of which were either named in this video or in the comments below. But if I had to pick 1 book that impacted me the most it would have to be The Go Giver.

ServantOfNone says:

I’ve decided to dedicate my time to watch all your video on your channel over the next few weeks. I’m hoping to get a few ideas, about generating passive income & getting a better financial education. Let’s see what plans I can come up to work towards over the next 7 years. By the way this channel is very good, there is too much “selling” with Tai Lopez, thanks for the free content

Drew Dapps says:

Jeff is the literal GOAT. love you bro stay awesome

Kayla Crisp says:

I just finished Never Split the Difference a week ago and have already used it to negotiate lower monthly rent in a new place. Applicable immediately, eight hours on Audible, I would agree this one is well worth it.

Mike B says:

Total money makeover! Ftw

Let's Talk Money! with Joseph Hogue, CFA says:

Great book compilation Jeff! Looks like I’ve got my reading list for a few months.

John Derry says:

Wow, just noticed how much your sub count has climbed in the past year, impressive. A particularly interesting video, thank you.

Mark Avi says:

Just read Dave Ramsey’s book, hell just listen to his YouTube channel/show and you’ll discover the path to wealth and realize 80% of everyone else’s financial advise is poop
“You work to hard America to be broke”

Isang Tsinelas says:

Hey Mr. Jeff, thank you for all your educational and informative posts. It has helped me a lot financially, and motivated me to diversify my portfolios a lot better. I just wanted to take this time and inform you about a brand new social media platform called webtalk. It only has been around for a few months and there are over 700,000 users that are already in the platform. Totally free to join and at no cost to anyone! Reason I wanted to share this with you is because for the Beta Users, the company rewards them with up to 50% of their AD revenue shares! No other platform out there is doing this. I know that you are all about passive income and you have inspired me to be the same. This is an opportunity that should not be passed up since it is absolutely free and who would want to turn an opportunity like that down. It is via invite only since it is still in Beta Stages. Rumor has it that they may cut off the shared revenue share part once they have reached 1,000,000 users. Might want to consider and take a gander. My invitation link is as follows: https://www.webtalk.co/be/home/6552109 Thank you for your time.


This video came to me at the most impeccable timing! THANK YOU!

Michaela Morris says:

Grant Stewart says:

More collaboration videos please.

Tali Togisala says:

Secrets of the millionaire mind by T. Harv Ecker this book is great a bit of an in your face type of book but for me it was something that needed. This book has helped me understand the way we look at money determines how much of it we will keep to establish the financial free future that everyone wants. It talks about how your programming leads to thoughts which lead to feelings which leads to actions and ultimately leads to your results. If your programmed to fail you’re going to fail and this book teaches you how to reprogram you inner world so that you can live and a better outer world. Seems a bit hippyish but it truly is an eye opener. I took immediate action and the results have been significant in everything I do.
