Our December 2022 Indie Business Book Club selection is The Richest Man In Babylon by George S. Clason. While it may seem like an odd choice for our book club, at nearly 100 years old, this book is regarded as a classic of personal financial advice. As entrepreneurs, how could we not take advantage of the knowledge contained in a book that is so well regarded?
Set in ancient Babylon, this book shares financial principles that have stood the test of time. Beginning with the importance of mindset and philosophy, the book guides the reader through the steps to begin to make money all the way through to empowering us to keep more of the money we make, and make our money work for us.

Buy The Richest Man In Babylon
Buy this and other Indie Business Book Club picks at IBN's Amazon shop.
Of course, you can also purchase the book at your favorite local book store or check it out of your local library.
I have an older copy of the book, which I have read several times. I have also listened to it a few times on Audible, which is my preferred way of consuming this particular book. I find that the parables are more easily digested through listening.
