MBA1983 Must Read: The Richest Man in Babylon By George S. Clason

Can fiction offer practical business advice?

It sure can. That’s what Omar discovered when he (finally) read George S. Clason’s The Richest Man in Babylon, a tale set thousands of years ago with made-up characters sharing lessons about life, business, and wealth.

This powerful book offers 7 principles, or “cures” to poverty, that are just as valid in the real world as they are in the fictionalized Babylon of the story. 

Discover what these 7 principles are, and why this book’s insights will always be relevant — as long as human nature remains human nature. This timeless tale can actually make you a better entrepreneur!

Hear how it impacted Omar, and how you can apply its lessons in practical terms.
