I highly recommend this book to anyone who'd like to ignore the fluff available on the Internet and take action now.
Now that being said, this book assumes you know about the basics like Cash Flow, budgeting, etc.
It doesn't talk about investment mediums like stock market, bond, etc.
And the best part is that unlike many books, this book tells you not to lead a frugal life
Many people think that life is very unfair. Here you are working hard and yet your income is not even enough to buy you an ice cream.
On the other side of the coin, you know someone who does not even shed a drop of sweat and yet lies in luxury.
If you think that life has been so rude on you and you were only born to suffer your destiny, then you are thinking as a poor man would think.
But if you think that you are the master of your destiny and you are in total control of your life, then you have a rich man?s mentality.
In our present society, the gap between the rich and the poor is growing wider everyday. The rich becomes richer while the poor becomes poorer.
To help us understand the satirical situation, we need to go into the mentality of the rich and blessed people and compare it with the way of thinking of the poor and underprivileged people.
Here we will disclose ten distinct differences in the money mentality of the rich versus the poor people. While reading the differences, try to assess your own mindset and see where yours mostly belong.
But remember that by defining rich and poor .I am not referring to an individual's current bank account size, net worth, assets, and so on. But rather, I am referring to the state of mind.
A human mind is so powerful it can create assets, or even liabilities. If you have a mind conditioned to be poor, no matter what wealth you have today you can lose it all sooner or later.
On the other hand, if you have the mind of a rich person's, you can create your wealth from scratch or get it all back faster than it took you the first time, even if you lose it all today.
But what about the company that is not born with great DNA? How can good companies, mediocre companies, even bad companies achieve enduring greatness?
For years, this question preyed on the mind of Jim Collins. Are there companies that defy gravity and convert long-term mediocrity or worse into long-term superiority? And if so, what are the universal distinguishing characteristics that cause a company to go from good to great?
Using tough benchmarks, Collins and his research team identified a set of elite companies that made the leap to great results and sustained those results for at least fifteen years. How great? After the leap, the good-to-great companies generated cumulative stock returns that beat the general stock market by an average of seven times in fifteen years, better than twice the results delivered by a composite index of the world's greatest companies, including Coca-Cola, Intel, General Electric, and Merck.
The research team contrasted the good-to-great companies with a carefully selected set of comparison companies that failed to make the leap from good to great. What was different? Why did one set of companies become truly great performers while the other set remained only good?
Over five years, the team analyzed the histories of all twenty-eight companies in the study. After sifting through mountains of data and thousands of pages of interviews, Collins and his crew discovered the key determinants of greatness -- why some companies make the leap and others don't.
The findings of the Good to Great study will surprise many readers and shed light on virtually every area of management strategy and practice. The findings include:
“Some of the key concepts discerned in the study,” comments Jim Collins, "fly in the face of our modern business culture and will, quite frankly, upset some people.”
Perhaps, but who can afford to ignore these findings?
Finding an angel investor to fund the next big idea has always been a daunting task. The next difficult task is to gain marketing exposure. Together, these elements can make or break a startup. Until recently, these two were separate activities – you first find investors & raise money, and then you would allocate your marketing spend.
The advent of crowdfunding has disrupted the way funding and marketing is done – by combining these critical tasks and getting them done at the same time.

In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.
For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected American society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.
Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek.
There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.
Fifteen billion dollars then was no small matter and should give you some idea where this industry will be in the future.
Yes, maybe 100 billion is a possibility in the next few years . Crowdfunding will have one of the greatest impacts on World Solutions to some of the World's greatest challenges like hunger and poverty throughout the world.
For what need do you need to raise money?
Crowdfunding has been used to raise funds for just about every possible thing. We have seen projects for charity work, crises and life events. Other projects are focused on funding ideas, business start-ups, lauchpad projects ,real estate and investment opportunities.
Both entrepreneurial and financing industries are very excited by all possibilities as we move into the future. Clearly we have only seen the beginning as it continues to evolve.
Imagine almost anybody with basic individual needs for which who might need to raise funds for some specific use has now plenty of easy viable options to launch and fuel their dreams .These ever changing options are what I call Crowdfunding 2.0, which is already happening ;
Starting or expanding a business
Nurturing spiritual pursuits
Creating projects to “Make a better world”
Funding home improvements
Funding college loans
Funding a coming wedding
Buying a new or used car
Creating a retirement fund
Paying off loans, bills, mortgage etc…
Crowdfunding feeds our hunger to connect with others who share similar idea’s and concerns. It is the launchpad for ideas to take flight .
“Crowd Funding is the next big Trend.” Currently it is said that there are over 500 websites on which all individuals, groups, non-profits and companies may present what is commonly known as a project.
