This book discusses why conventional wisdom having to do with getting rich is wrong. Most of the time, you are encouraged to get a fancy education or invest money for the long term. But this means that you will only accumulate wealth in the last part of your life, and not while you are still young enough to enjoy it. Additionally a stock market crash may significantly cut down your savings, depending on how your money is invested, and there’s no way to predict one accurately.
The Millionaire Fastlane talks about changing the mindset around accumulating wealth and starting your own profitable business.

Hanging on to your money!
The most important thing to getting rich is having the right mindset. If you ever catch yourself thinking that it was “luck” that caused someone to become rich, this is your main problem. Your future can be completely controlled, always. It just takes hard work, planning and persistence.
Planning allows getting into a stronger position to react to life’s challenges. It includes a financial plan, health insurance, and skill development. These will all help in events such as: a loss of your job, sudden illness, or an economic recession.
