Russell Simmons' Tips for Being Super Rich

Hip-hop legend says happiness is found in your heart, not in your wallet

When you see a book titled Super Rich: A Guide to Having it All, you might assume it’s just another financial self-help book. But author Russell Simmons says it’s much more than that.

As a pioneer of hip-hop, creator of a multitude of clothing and jewelry lines, philanthropist and all-around media mogul, Russell Simmons has achieved a level of success that most only dream of. But in his new book, he reveals that his road to riches was anything but a smooth ride. Building off his own life experiences and wisdom from an assemblage of religious teachings, he takes readers on a spiritual journey towards finding passion, happiness and success in their lives. He argues that being “super rich” is not a reflection of what’s in your wallet, but what’s in your heart.

My Generation’s Traci Mitchell met with the media icon to uncover the keys to living a blissful life.
