How To Make Money & Be Successful According To 31 Legendary People (Quotes Post)

There is so much wisdom in the Bible about money and it’s definitely something that I will continue to talk about in the future.

But you can find inspiration and knowledge from others as well when it comes to making money and being successful.

In fact, the advice that these legendary people give about making money is often counterintuitive to the way many people think you become wealthy.

There is a refrain inherit in these quotes about money which I find quite refreshing. Many of them purport the values of hard work, never giving up, being courageous, and being wise.

Let’s take a look at what these people have to say.
