My interest in the Law of Attraction means I inevitably receive a lot of email, most of it designed to sell something to me — a seminar, a video, a book. I am sure you are not alone. Email lists are wonderful — except for the way so many of them inevitably are designed to sell you something. It is one reason, actually, why I defy conventional wisdom and do NOT set up mailing lists of fans or potential fans for my books. I hate junk email and I’m sure you do too!
This morning I received an email that was clearly designed to sell me a book or something focusing on what rich people do that poor people do not do. I have no interest in buying whatever they are selling. But sprinkled among the standard “buy this” fare, the email did contain some useful information, information I am republishing here.
Stripping away the stuff we don’t want, here is the useful things from that email with just ONE “buy my book” link retained as a form of citation:
