Book reveals top quotes from Black millionaires

What an amazing book! 365 different quotes from 365 different millionaires and billionaires.  Some of the most powerful and well known entrepreneurs, actors, actresses,etc. in African American history have been referenced for the book.  One of the ways to become successful is to follow the habits of those who already are.  Hang around 3 broke people, you are bound to become the 4th. The same logic can be applied to becoming succesful. 


Some of the names that appear in the book are Oprah Winfrey of course. You cant have a book of succesful quotes without her now can you? Daymond John of Fubu, he is more well known these days  for his appearances on Shark Tank, Will Smith and more. 


There are a few quotes below, but obviously you need to purchase the book to see them all.  My personal favorite is from Will Smith "If you stay ready, you dont have to get ready"!
