Sometimes wealth and happiness might seem like unachievable goals. The reality is that they are both skills which can be acquired and honed over time. In his book, Eric Jorgenson has collected the most significant experiences and musings on this subject by the successful entrepreneur Naval Ravikant. The result is a sort of practical and spiritual guide, to help us understand those strengths and talents on which we can focus, so that we can build our own wealth.
