The Five Lessons a Millionaire Taught Me for Women
is essential for any woman today


When Richard Paul Evans was twelve years old, his father fell and broke both of his legs. With no income and no insurance, the Evans family was destitute. At this time a multimillionaire taught young Evans the five secrets to wealth. Evans used those five secrets not only to change his life but that of thousands of others when he wrote The Five Lessons a Millionaire Taught Me About Life and Wealth. An international bestseller, this essential work interweaves those influential lessons with personal stories from everyday people. Evans explains that money should not be the preoccupation of our lives, but instead our focus should be on the principles that free us to concentrate on God, family, and relationships -- life's true riches.

Now Evans has taken years of personal research and coaching to create the perfect money guide for women who want a better life. With his classic, motivational voice, Evans offers lessons that are easy to understand and simple to follow. Powerful, proven, and life changing, The Five Lessons a Millionaire Taught Me for Women may be one of the most important works you will ever listen to. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Oliver Wendell Holmes taught, ‘I wound’t give a fig for the simplicity on this side of complexity, but I would give my right arm for the simplicity on the far side of complexity.’ These five lessons represent that simplicity with a larger sublime context.”

    Dr. Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

  • “Richard Paul Evans not only teaches the prudent acquisition of wealth but the proper way to use it. I would as readily recommend this book to the young, cash-strapped newlywed couple as to the manager of a multibillion-dollar enterprise.”

    Robert C. Gay, managing director, Bain Capital

  • “You , who are willing to put the Five Lessons into practise, will become wealthy. And in doing so, you will increase your powers of opportunity and your ability to be generous in a faltering world.”

    Hyrum Smith, cofounder, Franklin Covey

    " This audiobook was a quick listen! I would've given it three stars, but at the end of the audiobook, he peddles his online community for $10 to join and $9.95 per month. That was a turnoff! Otherwise, it was some pretty good, if not old advice. "
