Path to Wealth & Wisdom: 100 Common Sense tips for Self Growth & Fulfillment

Younas Chaudhary's new book Path to Wealth & Wisdom: 100 Common Sense Tips for Self Growth & Fulfillment offers a series of tips, lessons and reflections drawn from the inspiring story of a self-made millionaire and entrepreneur.  

Raised in a remote village in Pakistan, Chaudhary built several successful businesses in the US and Canada using a mix of common sense, hard work, consistency, and determination. When he first landed in Edmonton in late 1973, Chaudhary had only $30 in his pocket. To change the trajectory of his life, he worked day in and out, rising up from a slaughterhouse worker to a landman, to a successful entrepreneur. Then, just when he thought he had it all, tragedy struck when his wife Bushra was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and dementia.  

This book follows the author’s first autobiographical work, From Dirt Roads to Black Gold, offering his tools and tips for productivity, finance, and business—the same ones that allowed Chaudhary to establish himself as a visionary businessman in the volatile oil and gas industry. In it, you will find practical business and financial advice, as well as wisdom for facing the unexpected twists and turns of life. 

Path to Wealth & Wisdom: 100 Common Sense Tips for Self Growth & Fulfilment tells the story of a man who took on the world with just a few dollars and a dream.
