INSPIRE #264: How to Think & Grow Rich + Guided Meditation!

Joel Fotinos, Napoleon Hill Editor & Expert Shows How to Put Think and Grow Rich Into Action For Success, Happiness & Wealth! + Guided Meditation!

Listen to the podcast below!



If you’ve ever read Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, or wondered what the Secret to Success is, then do we have the show for you!

Today I’ll be talking with Joel Fotinos, a winner of Science and Mind’s Spiritual Heroes of the Year Award, vice-president and publisher at TarcherPerigree, Napoleon Hill expert, the voice of 14 audio books including Think and Grow Rich and the Law of Success, a best-selling author and co-author with well over 120,000 books sold, and the editor of a new favorite book of mine, Road to Success.

Today we’ll talk about the principles of Napoleon Hill and how to translate his words into practical advice for your happiness and success.

That plus we’ll talk about the power of play, bushels of chestnuts, why calamity and failures are a good thing, and perhaps the most creative way to get someone bedridden out of bed.
