  1. Resources: Save your money. Save as much money as you possibly can.  If you use a credit card, you dont want to be rich. The first step to getting rich, requires discipline.

  2. Preparation: The 2nd rule for getting rich is getting smart. Become knowledgeable about the business of something you really love to do.  Read everything there is to read about the business. Go to trade shows, read the trade magazines, spend a lot of time talking to people...
