P. T. Barnum took promoting and showmanship to another level. He went into the circus business at the age of 60 and built a fortune, transporting his circus via the railroad on his own train. He wrote a book called “The Art of Money Getting: Golden Rules for Making Money” highlighting how to make (and more importantly keep) money. What’s remarkable is that this advice has stood the test of time and many current millionaires and billionaires from the present day have utilised the strategies Barnum discusses. If you would like to learn more about the people I’ve discussed in the examples in my videos, there are links to various videos with more information down below.

Eudaimonia says:

Hi everyone – this is a longer video for you. Firstly, I’d like to alert you to the fact that I’ve added timestamps and more details on each of the examples I’ve used in the video. Hope it helps some of you that like to skip to the bits that are relevant.

I find it fascinating that despite P. T. Barnum writing this book back in 1880, a lot of very successful people today are still using the advice he discusses in it. He was even ahead of his time with his clickbait-style book title – “The Art of Money Getting: Golden Rules for Making Money”.

Let me know if you prefer the longer video format. They take a lot more time so I don’t want to waste my time if you don’t like them. Cheers!

Keep it up, and you will gain the followers. Your video’s have greater substance and less fluff than currently more popular channels.
