These books form the Foundational Five. They will, when taken to heart, help you along the path to acquiring an Alchemist Mindset of abundance, prosperity and success!

Rich Dad Poor Dad is Robert’s story of growing up with two dads — his real father and the father of his best friend, his rich dad — and the ways in which both men shaped his thoughts about money and investing. The book explodes the myth that you need to earn a high income to be rich and explains the difference between working for money and having your money work for you.

The Richest Man in Babylon, based on “Babylonian parables”, has been hailed as the greatest of all inspirational works on the subject of thrift, financial planning, and personal wealth. In simple language, these fascinating and informative stories set you on a sure path to prosperity and its accompanying joys. A celebrated bestseller, it offers an understanding and a solution to your personal financial problem. Revealed inside are the secrets to acquiring money, keeping money, and making money earn more money.

In his groundbreaking Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, T. Harv Eker states: “Give me five minutes, and I can predict your financial future for the rest of your life!” Eker does this by identifying your “money and success blueprint.” We all have a personal money blueprint ingrained in our subconscious minds, and it is this blueprint, more than anything, that will determine our financial lives. You can know everything about marketing, sales, negotiations, stocks, real estate, and the world of finance, but if your money blueprint is not set for a high level of success, you will never have a lot of money—and if somehow you do, you will most likely lose it! The good news is that now you can actually reset your money blueprint to create natural and automatic success.

Think and Grow Rich has been called the “Granddaddy of All Motivational Literature.” It was the first book to boldly ask, “What makes a winner?” The man who asked and listened for the answer, Napoleon Hill, is now counted in the top ranks of the world’s winners himself.The most famous of all teachers of success spent “a fortune and the better part of a lifetime of effort” to produce the “Law of Success” philosophy that forms the basis of his books and that is so powerfully summarized in this one.

Wallace D. Wattles wrote The Science of Getting Rich in the early 1900’s, almost one century plus two decades has passed since then and the book has found its resurgence into our present time as people rediscovers his teachings. Wallace had made swift declarations in his book that this is the ONLY book one needs to get rich. He even goes into saying that one should not read other books but simply focus their energy on the ‘energy work‘ that this book requires.


I hope you take this suggest seriously and read each one of these books in the next 6 weeks. Yes, I said 6 weeks and not 5! Even though there are only 5 books in this list, I strongly suggest giving yourself 2 weeks to get through, “Think and Grow Rich” as that book is a little bigger and the concepts can be hard to digest the first time around.


If you are new to the concept of reading a book a week then you will definitely want to join my Alchemist Mentorship Program or start off with my book, “Broke To A Quarter-Million“.


I look forward to seeing you at one of my LIVE EVENTS and if you have already read all the books in the Foundational 5 and you want MORE you can check the list of books that go along with the 52 Weeks To Wealth where I discuss my 52 Millionaire Wealth Principles.
