Steel baron, writer, philanthropist
“Though not a writer, I have always felt that my true field was to be one.”
Andrew Carnegie is known as a great steel baron and a captain of industry. Some call him “the Bill Gates of the Industrial Age” (he was the richest human being of his time.)
He’s probably best known for donating the money to build over 2,500 libraries and the famous concert hall that bears his name.
And like Warren Buffett, Carnegie made it his mission in life to give away his wealth in his lifetime.
Carnegie the writer
But few people know that Carnegie was also a writer. He loved to see his ideas and opinions in print, and was a member of the Authors Club of New York, earning the privilege by publishing more than some professional writers.
He published seven books and more than eighty articles and speeches, and never needed a ghostwriter. His most well-known essay, Wealth, has influenced generations of philanthropists.
Success can be yours
“Think of yourself as on the threshold of unparalleled success. A whole, clear, glorious life lies before you. Achieve! Achieve!”
I’d love to help you achieve unparalleled success. What you do with the resulting wealth is up to you.
