Stephen played a prominent role in losing more than $80,000,000 of other people’s money before he was 30.

How can you do the same? It’s all in Chapter 9.

Sara, determined to succeed in record time, became one of the fastest rising young professionals in her Fortune 500 company. She worked long hours every week to prove her worth.
