The Better Life Book
Lessons Learned on the Road from Rags to Riches
Rosemarie Francis knows exactly what it takes to overcome hardship and create a life of wealth and accomplishment. Raised in a three-room shack with no running water in small-town Manitoba, young Rosemarie was under pressure from her alcoholic, abusive father to aim for a job at the local chicken-packing plant. Determined to have a better life, she left home at seventeen and worked her way up to become a self-made millionaire. In The Better Life Book, Rosemarie teaches the seven fundamental lessons she learned on the road to riches, stating that without these basics in place, all the planning in the world will not get you where you want to go.
