When Jim Stovall, through his business, makes his movies such as The Ultimate Gift accessible both as a premiere theatrical and DVD movie, as well as part of a school curriculum, he improves the lives of young and old alike. - Donald J. Trump On the heels of the best-selling success of The Ultimate Gift and the major motion picture from 20th Century Fox based on that book, Jim Stovall brings you The Millionaire Map. "This is the book I wished was available 30 years ago when I was desperate and broke with only a dream of one day being a millionaire. Now, as a multimillionaire, I want to share the wisdom I've gained from the journey and provide other travelers with a map to guide them on their journey." -- Jim Stovall The Millionaire Map Reveals: You can't expand your wallet until you expand your mind. Becoming a millionaire is not just about all the things you want to have, but it's about the things you want to do and give. In order to climb to the financial peak, you've got to crawl out of the valley of debt. You will either voluntarily control your money now, or it will force its control on you later. The vast majority of people never arrive at their destination-not because they don't have what it takes but because they don't manage what they have.
