Interview with Tom Corley of Rich Habits | World Changer Show

What are the habits of the wealthy? They could very well be the same habits that help one to have a great marriage, be a great parent, live a long, healthy life, and ultimately change the world.

Tom Corley Rich Habits

I was honored to recently spend more than an hour interviewing best-selling author, Tom Corley about some of the Rich Habits he has discovered and shared in recent years. Tom understands the difference between being rich and poor: at age 9 his family went from being multi-millionaires to broke in just one night.

For five years, Tom observed and documented the daily activities of 233 wealthy people and 128 people living in poverty. He discovered there is an immense difference between the habits of the wealthy and the poor. During his research he identified over 200 daily activities that separated the “haves” from the “have nots.” The culmination of his research can be found in his #1 bestselling book, Rich Habits – The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals.

His new book is Rich Kids: How to Raise Our Children to Be Happy and Successful in Life and you can win one of FIVE copies right here. See below for details.

  • Enjoyed listening to this one today. Tom’s book is definitely on my “To Read List”.

    • Glad you enjoyed it Jon. Can’t wait to hear what you think of his book(s).

  • I was so excited to see this interview because I am reading Rich Habits right now. He really gave you (us) a lot of time!

    Thank you for asking about that one habit about not speaking one’s mind – it needed clarification, because on paper it sounded as if the rich aren’t forthcoming or honest.

    And thank you for asking about the opposition to his 20 Things list – I heard about it and was very puzzled as to why people got all bowed up. It is a list of facts – what’s to argue?? Tom is a great guy for responding to all those arguments and setting the record straight.

    His book is surprising – lots of little stories instead of dry results of his study. It is an engaging and quick read.

    • TOM CORLEY: AUTHOR

      Tks Jana for all of your comments, particularly the one re: the stories. My original manuscript included the study results, data, charts, graphs. A very successful friend of mine convinced me to re-write Rich Habits in the form of stories instead.

  • P.S. I was also quite pleased to hear you mention Brian Tracy because I am listening to his audio book “No Excuses”. Very straightforward, inspiring and motivational material!

  • This episode blew my mind. loved it!! Thanks Tom and Matt!!

    • Anytime I can blow your mind is a win for me :)

      • To be clear…you did nothing to blow my mind Matt…it was all Tom. I was actually underwhelmed by your performance…. 😉

  • Finally getting caught up and listening to all your podcast episodes Matt! This one…WOW! I’ve heard of the book but after this it’s being added to my reading list for sure. I already practice most of the habits but I never thought of the birthday calls. That is one thing I’m going to add. So Matt, when is your birthday?

  • Great interview Matt and Tom. I just finished up the book Rich Habits, and now I’m going back through it and marking it up more. Thanks Tom for sharing your story and taking time to write the book and to do this interview with Matt.
