Everywhere we turn, we hear negative financial news—that the American Dream is dead or that the little man can’t get ahead. Our culture feeds us the lie that it’s impossible to become a millionaire in America today, but it’s time you heard the truth.
In his newest book, Everyday Millionaires: How Ordinary People Built Extraordinary Wealth—and How You Can Too, Chris Hogan destroys millionaire myths that are keeping everyday people from achieving financial independence. Chris and the Ramsey research team surveyed over 10,000 US millionaires, discovering how these high-net-worth people reached their financial status. And the formula might surprise you.
Millionaire status doesn’t require inheriting a bunch of money or having a high-paying job. No. The path to becoming a millionaire is paved with more-ordinary tools—tools that you either already have or that you can learn. If you thought you could never become a millionaire, think again. Listen and learn from over 10,000 everyday millionaires who have done it and believe it’s possible for you too.
Empowering and motivational. Gives you a different outlook, and reminds you throughout the entire book, YOU have what it takes! You have all the tools !55
Received the book as a gift. As soon as I saw the name Dave Ramsey in it, I knew it was garbage. Ramsey is a charlatan and untrustworthy. In 2012, after I uncovered and reported unethical activity by one of his “ELPs” (local resellers), he alerted his ELP and the ELP’s mother became hostile and publicly insulting towards me. It’s proof that Ramsey only cares about protecting his empire of wealth and will do so dishonesty without addressing unethical activity on behalf of his reseller. Ramsey nor any of his employees ever contacted me about the matter. But the most insulting aspect of Ramsey is wrapping himself in Bible scripture that for years has fooled thousands of his customers into thinking he shares those same values, which he does not.15
This book was decently entertaining, but if you’re a regular consumer of Chris, Dave Ramsey or Rachel Cruze’s content, it will feel like the same regurgitated information you’ve read in other books or heard on their podcasts. I found myself struggling to finish this out of boredom. If you are new to this world however, then disregard my above comment and enjoy!45
I am currently 25 year old husband and father of 2 looking to turn my financial life around. I am not a reader but I figured I would give it a shot for my futures sake. I completed this book in 2 and a half days. Thank you Chris for writing this great book55
This book was very informational and helped me understand how to reach financial freedom!55
Made me realize I don’t need to depend on a man. Hard work, and not playing the victim will get you a lot farther in life. ❤️🇺🇸👌🏼 Amazing55
I was under the impression I would get good sound advice on things to do and not to do to achieve the millionaire status.. this was all just stories and “believe in yourself” stuff.. I don’t want to hear stories or to be told to believe in myself and ignore the nay-sayers.. I wanted to learn how to create a solid plan of action for myself..15
Extremely repetitive. Don’t claim you know the average American millionaire with less than .1% studied.25
This book left me wanting, and referred too much to Dave Ramsey’s materials (I like him, but I wanted more independence here). Out of a 119 page survey, probably 10% of the topics were presented here. Furthermore they are presented in a manner to drive a point to the reader. Ok, sure. It would have been fun to look at the stats that were more 50/50 in the survey, though.35
