Its creation is intuitive and simple. This book is intended for everyone, whether managing a property portfolio or a project, owning or running a business, or just taking an interest in the workplace to which they are treated, or subject.

The Wealth Elite by Rainer Zitelmann

Are they meticulous planners – or is their wealth an unintended by-product of their entrepreneurial activities? Is it nature or nurture that sets them on the path to great financial success? This book represents one of the most comprehensive modern-day studies of the super rich. Based on interviews with members of the financial elite, and rigorous academic analysis, this empirical study investigates the link between personality traits and the creation of enormous wealth. In short, the book provides a fascinating insight into the world of the super rich – and how they think, behave and make their fortunes.

Target by Jérôme Chouchan
Target presents a unique approach to business and life. It takes inspiration from the wisdom of the ancient Japanese martial art of archery – Kyudo. Kyudo has a particular teaching: Right shooting always results in a hit . This means that you shouldn’t worry about simply hitting the target; instead, you should calmly focus your energy and willpower on proper mindset and form. In doing so, this right-minded shooting will naturally result in a hit. The philosophy of Kyudo gives new perspectives and solutions to the struggles and opportunities that anyone may encounter in their business and career. The Kyudo aphorisms have been passed from Japanese masters to the author, and have been put into practice for professional and personal situations.
