Acres of Diamonds is a classic personal development book about a farmer who heard about others discovering vast diamond mines. So he sold his farm and began a fruitless worldwide search for his diamond fortune. Discouraged and broke he eventually threw himself into a river and drowned.
The new owner of his farm found an unusual looking stone on his property that was eventually determined to be a diamond. His farm became the site of the largest diamond mine ever.
Moral of the story? There are opportunities (diamonds) in your own backyard if you but search for them. And that’s the message of this new book by Tommi Pryor and Vic Johnson: How To Make Extra Money: 100 Perfect Businesses for Part-Time and Retirement Income.
